    There itself.
    Looks faithful to the manga/anime in the sense that Guts looks as badass as ever! Can't wait to slash some *guts* on the Vita :lol:

    Well, Dark Souls took A LOT of its inspiration in Berserk's universe in the first place (not the games, the manga of course). Just look at Berserk's bestiary, weapons and general environments, the similarities are striking at times (Berserk started releasing as a manga in 1989).
    Note that I'm not blaming From Software from where it got its inspiration or anything, the Souls games are formidable, but let's give credit where it's due ;)

    There has been a small trend of games imitating Dark souls in the recent periods, be it the universe and lore or the gameplay, but that's a different case we got here.

    EDIT: Also the game looks for all intents and purposes like a Dinasty Warriors.
    Not the type of game I really enjoy playing, but hopefully it's good (in its own type).

    Great, I love both Berserk games on the DreamCast and PS2.
    I think it uses the same engine as First of the north star games.

    Oh wow... Didn't expect a berserk themed warriors game. I'm surprisingly hyped for this.

    Edit: It has a steam icon at the bottom, hype intensifies

    KOEI TECMO EUROPE OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCES WESTERN RELEASE OF

    THE MOST BRUTAL WARRIORS GAME TO DATE:

    BERSERK (WORKING TITLE)


    Slash and Smash through Enemies and Environments Alike in Game Based on the Iconic Manga and Anime Series ‘Berserk’, Headed to PlayStation®4, Windows PC, and PlayStation®Vita


    Hertfordshire, 15th July 2016 KOEI TECMO Europe is excited to confirm today the upcoming European release of Berserk (Working Title),Omega Force’s most brutal Warriors title to date based on the iconic manga and anime seriesBerserk. Slated to release this fall for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and digitally for the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam®, KOEI TECMO’s interactive entertainment rendition of Berserk will closely follow the events of the most well-known story arcs from the iconic manga’s narrative, focusing on the daring and heroic life of Guts as he cuts his way through a sinister realm of magical and demonic fiends.



    Berserk (working title) will fuse the signature ‘one versus thousands’ style action of the long-running Warriors franchise with the grim and gruesome atmosphere of the world of Berserk. As players harness the power of Guts’ Great Sword and utilise the swift and agile swordplay of Griffith to slash and smash through hordes of enemies, players familiar with the Warriors series will be able to feel the difference in gameplay through the way each character handles combat. The game will also incorporate various battle mechanics to better bring the world of Berserk to life, such as Magic and Transformations.


    Written by Kentarou Miura, Berserk is a world-renowned series set in a world enveloped in darkness and deception. Its profound story is told through the lives of its fascinating characters, focusing on Guts, a lone mercenary, and Griffith, the leader of a mercenary group known as the ‘Band of the Hawk’. With mind-blowingly detailed drawings, visceral themes of human nature, and gripping storytelling, Berserkhas fascinated and influenced many fans worldwide, placing it at the pinnacle of the dark fantasy genre.


    Hisashi Koinuma, President of KOEI TECMO GAMES and Producer of Berserk (Working Title)has released the following statement:


    “We are finally able to unveil our collaboration between Berserk and the Warriors series. In this game, players can experience and immerse themselves into the world of Berserk as the main character Guts, wielding his powerful weapon Dragon Slayer mercilessly slashing enemies in half, and through the massive story beginning with the Golden Age arc. The game content will be enjoyable even to those who don't normally play games, so we hope all fans of Berserk will give this game a go. Become a member of Guts and his group, and experience the exhilaration of the most lethal Warriors game within the intense world of Berserk.”


    Berserk (Working Title) is currently in development by Omega Force and slated for a Fall 2016 launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, as well as digitally on the PlayStation®Vita handheld system and Windows PC via Steam®.



    More information about the game’s plot, original content, and playable characters will be unveiled in the coming weeks. KOEI TECMO Europe has released a first batch of assets showcasing the main characters Guts and Griffith, in-game cutscenes, and violent hack-and-slash action featured in Berserk (Working Title), as well as atrailer featuring the protagonist Guts engaged in combat.
