We jump into Mitchell's thoughts from his review, in which he called Kena a great game, what we love and hope to see improved about the combat and exploration in future games, our love of the beautiful art design and detail, and we weirdly get hung up on the game's fonts.

Plus, we dive into the recent reports about Quantic Dream's alleged Star Wars game, if that's a combination we're interested in seeing, and whether it makes sense for Quantic Dream to explore settings like the original trilogy or apply its choice-based gameplay to an era like The High Republic.

On this week's episode of IGN's PlayStation show, Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Brian Altano and Mitchell Saltzman to discuss the report that Sony may be shuttering the PS3, PS Vita, and PSP stores in the coming months. We dive into what the loss of those digital storefronts might mean for a large chunk of PlayStation history, why we hope the decision doesn't come to pass, and what Sony could do to preserve such an important era to PlayStation's history. Then, the cast dives into the surprising announcement that Sony has acquired EVO in a new partnership. We discuss what the acquisition may mean for EVO itself and the fighting community at large, why we think Sony made the deal, and, really, why we hope it means a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale 2 could actually happen. Plus, we dive into some of the free games coming PlayStation players' way with the Play at Home lineup, the PSVR 2 controllers, and much more!
