Today Bandai Namco released a new batch of screenshots of its upcoming Souls-like action-JRPG Code Vein.

The screenshots showcase Juuzo Mido, who used to conduct extensive research on revenants before the great collapse. He used to gather orphans to experiment on and use in battle as mercenaries. Using body parts, he reinforced them, creating revenants with boosted abilities, able even to block Yakumo’s fierce attacks.

We also see the Combo Drain feature, and a few attacks available to one-handed (Broadsword, Sunset Swords, Hanemukuro)  and two-handed swords (Zweihander, Warped Blade, Nagimukuro).

Last, but not least, we get to see Mia and Louis as they assist the main character using different variations of Combo Drain. When you’re not fighting, they will also explore the surroundings looking for items and enemies.

You can check out all the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy a recent gameplay trailer, and another of screenshots. Just a few days ago, we got an update on development and on the developers’ ambitions to grow the game into a franchise.

Code Vein will launch sometime in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you’re interested, you can pre-order it on Amazon.
