Using a working title for now, Koei Tecmo and Omega Force’s Berserk was given its first trailer today, offering up a few seconds of PlayStation 4 gameplay footage.
“Omega Force’s new project unveiled: the collaboration of the landmark dark fantasy manga series Berserk and Koei Tecmo’s Warriors series!” the description says. “The intense world and frenzied story will unfold for the most lethal Warriors game!”
Here’s what to expect from Berserk:
The one-against-one thousand Warriors series and the uniquely gruesome battle series Berserk unite. Wield a grand sword bigger than yourself and slice the enemy in two, kill and crush with “Kill-Crush Action” overflowing with power. Experience the overwhelming destructive power of breaking a siege with a single swing.
A Grand and Deep Story
The game starts from the “Golden Age Arc” popular among original fans, up until the end of the “Millennium Falcon Arc” where the protagonist Guts, on his journey for revenge, acquires his invaluable comrades. You’ll be able to relive the grand world of Berserk. Additionally, intense scenes reproduced via the anime movie and 3D models are included, and interactions between the members of the Band of the Hawk not included in the movie are being incorporated. This extensive story is being developed using an immense volume of graphics.
In addition to the story’s protagonist Guts, popular characters from the original work will also appear. These characters, who posses a variety of special skills, will showcase a number of unique actions in battle. Additionally, the major characters will feature the same voice actors as from the anime movie and July 2016-due television anime.
Berserk will be available later this year in Japan for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. It’s also coming to North America and Europe at an unspecified time for PS4, PS Vita, and PC.
