He’s off the boat and in our ‘Warriors’ games. Berserk is back and will finally be in full swing thanks to Koei Tecmo’s new Warriors game. The company is famous for taking in different IPs and throwing them into the familiar style of hack ‘n’ slash games. Using the formula from Dynasty Warriors, the company has successfully created some incredibly fun games such as Hyrule Warriors and One Piece: Pirate Warriors. Omega Force is nothing to mess with after showcasing a gorgeous trailer for ‘Berserk Warriors’.
Based on the 1989 cult classic series Berserk, the game will follow the adventures of Guts, a lone mercenary that explores the dark gritty medieval world in order to follow his dreams and stop Griffith. It is assumed that this game will also retell the story.
As a Warriors game, this will feature countless enemies to slice and dice. The game looks incredibly faithful to the manga; bloody, dark and extremely gritty. Guts looks like he’s having a whale of a time swinging his greatsword, the Dragon Slayer.
More details surrounding the game will be released over time. Berserk Warriors will be released on the 21st of September in Japan for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the Vita. There are plans for a western release for the same platform, just no solid release date yet.
