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

The screenshots showcase pretty much the same themes as the batch released by Bandai Namco America a few days ago, and in fact, a few of them are in common, but this time around we get a lot more.

We see Juuzo Mido and his band of augmented vampires, the combo drain feature both on the ground and after lifting the enemy in the air, special attacks with one-handed swords (Broadsword, Sunset Swords, Hanemukuro) and two-handed swords (Zweihander, Warped Blade, Nagimukuro).

We also get to see Mia and Louis in action as buddy NPCs. Not only they will fight and perform their own combo-drain attacks, but they will execute special moved during boss fights, and help with exploration.

At times they will warn you about dangers (both enemies and areas that might collapse), so it’s a good idea to listen to them. They will heal you, and they will speak different lines depending on which character you have with you and where you are.

You can check out all the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy a recent trailer and another batch 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.
