Kitsune Tails Game Overview
Kitsune Tails is a classic-style platformer, following the story of Yuzu, a young, inexperienced member of the Kitsune (fox people), as she works to serve as a divine messenger for the goddess Inari. Run, jump and dash your way through beautiful landscapes, as Yuzu fights to prove that even a half-human, half-kitsune can master the elements.
The player can don a selection of furry elemental outfits that bestow the wearer with elemental abilities, such as shooting fireballs, running on water, ground pound attacks, and the ability to freeze her enemies. You can even find hidden outfits throughout the game for bonus attacks.
More About the Kitsune Tails Story
When a mishap occurs during one of Yuzu’s outings, she is left in serious trouble, but fortunately, her friend Akko was around to save the young kitsune from what could have been a terrible fate. As time goes by, a romance kindles between the two young women, but before anything more could happen Akko was taken from Yuzu.
Yuzu’s childhood mentor and friend had made other plans for the couple and works to keep the two women apart. But with the help of an amulet gifted to Yuzu by her goddess, she is able to claim the power that could save Akko before it is too late. Yuzu, our young Kitsune, must work tirelessly to save Akko before all is lost.
