When the new Warrior’s game from Koei Tecmo launches next year, lucky Europeans will have the opportunity to slice their way to revenge. (Sorry, America. You will have to stick to Final Fantasy for your oversized sword needs for now.) The game will be based on the popular Berserk manga and anime series (currently in a new season on Crunchyroll), and it promises to be “the most brutal game in Warrior’s history“.
That is no surprise considering the carnage heavy source material. The story focuses on a mercenary named Guts. He and The Band of the Hawk want to have a kingdom they can call their own, but life and supernatural creatures keep that domestic dream from succeeding. The game will include three different story arcs and two hours of animation.
A Warrior’s game and Berserk really seems like the perfect peanut butter and jelly matchup to us. You will get to decide for yourself when Berserk and the Band of the Hawk launches on February 02, 2017.
