Koei Tecmo and Omega Force have made good on their promise to show off more Berserk on June 23, and here it is. There’s a new gameplay trailer, showing off Guts hacking and slashing his way through a horde of enemies with his greatsword. The gameplay certainly does have Omega Force written all over it, though the combat itself looks a little slower, likely to compensate for the protagonist’s large weapon.
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 Gust, 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 officially released for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita on September 21 in Japan. A North America release has also been planned for the PS4, PS Vita, and PC.
