    Bandai Namco showcased a teaser trailer for their upcoming game, Code Vein, earlier last month. Today, they've put out a new trailer, showcasing gameplay features and cutscenes. The game seems to have elements of Dark Souls styled combat in it, as well as a gritty medieval feel to it. You play as a vampire, who can absorb the powers of your enemies to gain new abilities. Code Vein will also feature a companion mechanic, where you will be assisted by a partner in battle. It's not known what system the game will release for, but it's due for release sometime in 2018.

    AKA Weeb Souls.

    I need to see a lot more combat before getting invested.

    The combat looks...awkward. I know it's still in development, but look at the attacks when they show the combat, there's like, no weight to the hits at all. Looks too stiff to be fun, honestly. You need weighty gameplay (like Souls/BB) for it to be satisfying IMO. Hopefully that gets fixed before release.

    Gambia, The
    Code Vain ... the anime style NEGATIV-DARK SOULS .....
    It has the basic characteristics of Dark Souls but
    instead of too little storytelling, it has too much of it

    Does need more weight behind those attacks. Otherwise it feels like a cheap mmo.

    I'm actually looking forward to this. I like Dark Souls, I like Anime, so lets see if I like it combined. I do however hope that English Dub voices become a thing at some point, even as DLC.

    Not really sold on the combat so far, but then again, I think Dark Souls' combat is boring and repetitious. I hope this has more going for it than a copy-paste of Dark Souls combat into a different world, because I can see myself liking the game otherwise.

    NO COFFEI!
    This looks pretty dang cool! I'd probably pick it up if it were good. Although, as Chary mentioned, the combat is way too light and quick, it's kinda weird.

    I always find it odd when people directly compare a game to another, then say the game isn't as good as that game and dismiss it entirely.
    How stupid can you get.
    I realize comparisons can be made, but that shouldn't be your entire judgement of a game unless it is literally advertised as being "dark souls but anime guise"
    Action combat has existed for much longer than Souls games, they just perfected a form of it.

    Anyway the premise is certainly interesting. But definitely need to see more. From both the story/world and of course, gameplay. The very first story focused trailer isn't really a great showcase of what the game offers for gameplay.

    From looking at the trailer it seems like the weight of your attacks don't impact the enemies at all. Unless that changes it might very well be a deal breaker to me.

    Fuck yes, I'm in. Anime or no, I've hoped to see a brighter-themed Souls game. That's assuming items and builds are at least somewhat diverse, anyway. Also decent level design.

    You can definitely see the God Eaters influence in the combat animations.

    I thought Bloodborne was the weeaboo Dark Souls. Is this that taken to the next level?

    When I read it, I was thinking Legacy of Kain meets Dark Souls. Lost interest when I saw the trailer. As everyone is saying, the attacks have no weight to them. Dude was slashing away and the enemy gave no fucks. Also looks like there's too much fantasy weird shit goin on for my taste. Probably another case of the devs doing too much and pulling off none of it on a goty level. Then again, they have another year or so to work on it.
