Today Bandai Namco released a brand new trailer of its upcoming Souls-like action JRPG Code Vein.
The video focuses on the NPCs that will accompany us in our adventures as AI-driven buddies, which is one of the elements that make the game rather unique.
We also get commentary from developers explaining the goals of the system and the philosophy behind its implementation.
You can watch it below. Personally, I really love the system, but maybe that’s just because I’m bad at masocore games and I hope that my buddies will carry me.
Code Vein releases on September 27 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
If you want to see more, you can take a look at some spiffy gameplay, and a recent trailer with commentary from the developers, and the latest story trailer that revealed the release date, a boss trailer focusing on Oliver Collins, another featuring the Heir of the Ribcage boss, and one showing the sword.
