Today Bandai Namco released another batch of screenshots of its upcoming JRPG Code Vein.
We get to see more of Mia Karnstein and Yakumo Shinonome, who were introduced last week, on top of a look at the Blood Veil, a weapon that can use the life energy absorbed from enemies and convert it into special attacks named “Hemorrhage.”
There are various kinds of Hemorrage that can be performed, with different effects like direct attacks, defense buffs, or mobility increase. Your fighting style will vary greatly depending on the kind of Blood Veil you’re wearing.
In addition to this, we also get to see screenshots of the dungeons that we’ll have to explore. The first is an “urban area” and the second is an “underground area” of a city that has been destroyed by the calamity named “Thorns of Judgement.”
The urban area is full of blind corners caused by ruins and debris, and it’s important to search for hidden items while being wary of surprise attacks from enemies. The underground area is a sprawling maze of tunnels full of limestone rocks among the foundations of the derelict skyscrapers. It’s dimly lit, so you’ll have to proceed with caution.
You can check the screenshots out in the gallery below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy some more impressive screenshots, the first gameplay, a second gameplay clip, alongside the original reveal trailer of the game.
Code Vein will be released for PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2018.
