Following yesterday’s reveal on Weekly Famitsu, Koei Tecmo released a batch of direct feed screenshots and artwork of the upcoming Berserk Musou by Koei Tecmo, that for now is tentatively named simply “Berserk” for the western market.
We get another glimpse at Guts and Griffith and the first look at Casca and Judeau. Guts is featured both in his Black Swordsman armor and in the one he wears while part of the Band of The Hawk. Griffith also has two versions, Hawk and Reborn Hawk.
The new reveal included a recap of the story of the Golden Age arc. I won’t repeat it here, as it would be a massive spoiler for those that haven’t read the manga or watched the anime yet. Suffice to say that it’s pretty much identical to the manga, so we can expect the game to follow the story rather precisely.
We also get more info about the game: it will simulate the power of the manga’s warriors. The more they fight, the more their attacks become brutal and terrifying. It’s possible to cut monsters in half and utterly crush the enemy.
The game also features the terrible enemies named the Apostles. They’re boss battles full of tension and extremely dangerous. Our heroes will have to survive desperate situations while fighting them.
While playing as Guts, it will be possible to master a variety of ranged weapons on top of his Dragonslayer sword. We will be able to devastate the enemy with the cannon built in his artificial arm, throw explosive bombs and knives, while shooting bolts with the automatic crossbow. Players will be able to go on a rampage like in the manga.
You can check all the images out below. The game will release in Japan on September 21st for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita and worldwide at a later date, losing the PS3 version and getting one on Steam.
