For those not familiar with the series, Berserk is a long running manga by Kentaro Miura, a gritty dark fantasy story about Guts as he carves a bloody path through demons and abominations with his enormous sword Dragonslayer. It’s inspired video games like Dark Souls, Dragon’s Dogma, and all sorts of fictional works. Koei Tecmo has recently shown off some teasers from the upcoming Berserk Musou game (a style of game you may know from Dynasty Warriors or Hyrule Warriors).

The Musou is being developed by Omega Force, long running creators of the Warriors games like Dynasty Warriors 8 or Samurai Warriors. They’re no strangers to handling Musou spin-offs of franchises, having recently worked on Pirate Warriors 3, a One Piece game, and Hyrule Warriors. Kentaro Miura himself is handling the writing for the game, so fans can rest assured it will be true to the manga. It was initially revealed in June for a Japanese release on PS4, PS3 and Vita.

We now know the West will be receiving the game in Autumn, with PS4, Vita and PC versions, but no PS3 version of the game available. The game will be digital only for Vita and the PC (with a Steam release), and a physical copy available as well as the digital release for the PS4.

Koei Tecmo’s president, Hisashi Koinuma, had this to say about the game:

“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”.

He claims that the game will be “enjoyable even to those who don’t normally play games”. More images of the game are below and on the official site.
