Wild Hearts end game content - What's the Wild Hearts post game like?

Post-game content in Wild Hearts consists of largely what you'd expect - more reasons to hunt Kemono.

This action RPG lives and dies by the challenge of tackling big monsters, and by offering altered and higher-tuned versions of the beasts you fought in the main story give you a reason to keep grinding for gear and weapons you'll need to take them on.

How to unlock Volatile Kemono in Wild Hearts

The first of many Wild Hearts endgame challenges you'll want to tackle is the rise of the Volatile Kemono. Supposedly versions of familiar creatures that have taken in a little to much Celestial Thread, these 'berzerk' monsters are sure to have a few new tricks up their fleshy sleeves, so you'll need some tougher equipment to reliably take them on.

Beating Volatile Kemono will reward you with not only a few unique crafting materials to help you get stronger, but mysterious Keystones, too.

Deeply Volatile Kemono

After defeating a Volatile Kemono and collecting enough Keystones, you'll be able to challenge even more powerful versions of the beasts to a great battle.

Deeply Volatile Kemono award incredibly powerful talismans when they fall, giving you a chance to equip new abilities and passive boosts. Expect to repeat this step a lot to get what you need for your perfect build.
