KOEI TECMO has confirmed the upcoming North American release of Berserk, considered Omega Force’s most brutal Warriors title to date based on the iconic manga and anime series, Berserk. Slated to release this fall for the PS4, PS Vita PC, Berserk will in fact 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 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 utilize 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 impressively detailed drawings, visceral themes of human nature, and gripping storytelling, Berserk has fascinated and influenced many fans worldwide, placing it at the pinnacle of the dark fantasy genre.
