KOEI TECMO Warriors, Berserk Western Release Officially Announced

July 16, 2016 Written by

KOEI TECMO Europe announced their most brutal game yet:

A combination of the Warriors series and the epic manga/ anime Berserk. The game will be playable on PlayStation 4, PC, and PlayStation Vita.

The game Berserk (Working Title) will follow the events of the best story arcs as the heroic character Guts battles his way through an evil realm of demonic and magical beings. It will take the button mashing, one versus thousands style of action from the Warriors franchise and mesh it with Berserk’s grim world. Berserk (Working Title) will also incorporate battle mechanics that are special for the anime and manga series, like Magic and Transformations.

President of KOEI TECMO GAMES and Producer of the game, Hisashi Koinuma stated his excitement for the release of Berserk X Warriors,

“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 is expected to release sometime Fall of 2016. More details about the plot, original content, and playable characters will be announced later in the week. KOEI TECMO Europe released a trailer showing off some of the gameplay for Berserk’s main characters Guts and Griffith.
