This morning, Bandai Namco revealed its new action JRPG Code Vein with a press release from Japan, but did not mention any platform. A follow-up press release from Bandai Namco Entertainment America gives a bit more clarity on where the game is going.
The announcement points out that the game will release on “major home consoles.” Incidentally, it also mentions the fact that it’ll include a “massive interconnected world.”
We also get a statement from Bandai Namco Entertainment America Vice President of Marketing Eric Hartness, promising “plenty of challenge” and a “smart and engaging story.”
“Code Vein provides a fresh anime aesthetic and blood-curdling gameplay twists to the popular 3rd-person action RPG genre. The talented development team at Bandai Namco Studios is creating a tightly crafted experience filled with plenty of challenge that our fans crave along with a smart and engaging story that is sure to draw players deeper into the world of Code Vein. Let the feast begin!”
Code Vein is currently scheduled for a 2018 release, with a trailer coming next month. At the moment we don’t know when specific platforms will be announced, but home console gamers have a reason to be excited.
