The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu included a spread on Bandai Namco’s Souls-like JRPG Code Vein, including new screenshots and information.
We learn about a new character Juuzo Midou. He used to be the leading expert in vampire research before the Great Collapse. He gathered orphans at his laboratory before sending them to the battlefield as mercenaries. He used human bodies for his research and now he has become a superpowered revenant himself. He seems to be targeting revenant with high combat capabilities for the purpose of furthering his experiments.
We also get to see more of Louis and Mia in action as NPC companions, and a few weapons, among one-handed swords there are the broadsword, the “sword of the sunset” and the “Hanemukuro”. Among two-handed swords there are the “Sword of the Grotesque Curse,” the “Zweihander” and the “Nagimukuro.”
You can check out all the screenshots below, keeping in mind that they’re from magazine scans, so the quality is not perfect. 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.
