The latest Trek to Yomi trailer shows off striking black-and-white samurai action

Devolver Digital released the latest trailer for feudal Japan-themed samurai game Trek to Yomi, a cinematic action game with a striking art style and perspective.

The trailer clearly shows off what is supposed to be a style meant to mimic old black-and-white samurai cinema like that of famed filmmaker Akira Kurosawa but done in a 2.5-dimensional perspective.
