Koei Tecmo Releases New Berserk Gameplay Video Showing Griffith
Berserk 12

Koei Tecmo and Omega Force recently published a new video showing Griffith in action. This new trailer that the devs released comes in after the previous gameplay trailer with Guts fighting some enemies. Berserk is set to come out for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita over in Japan, while the West will lose the PS3 version and will gain a PC variant via Steam.

Alright, I kinda figured this day would come. The true Musou is released and will be very prominent in Koei Tecmo and Omega Force’s take on the brutal and gruesome world of Berserk. After seeing Guts and now Griffith’s gameplay trailers, I can now see how the game is shaping up to be similar to Dynasty Warriors’ mechanics.

This now brings me to the debate that I see quite often regarding this iteration of Berserk. A lot of folks are going back and forth about different development teams and who would be better. I would prefer if teams like Platinum Games, Team Ninja or CD Projekt Red got a hold of Berserk.

The reason I say Platinum Games is because of Nier Automata. Now I know Berserk doesn’t play out anything like the upcoming Nier, but I would like to see what the team could do with it seeing how unique and fluent Nier Automata is shaping up to be. As for Team Ninja, I really do like how NiOh is coming along. But as one should know, NiOh plays out almost like Dark Souls, which Hidetaka Miyazako (the creator of the Souls series) admitted that he was inspired by Kentaro Miura’s work (the creator of Berserk).

As for CD Projekt Red, I notice they like to take their time with their games, like with the Witcher. In any case, CDPR could have ripped many people off with their DLCs, and could have chose to make the Witcher’s free month of DLC all payed, but they didn’t. And also, the Witcher games are pretty solid and give fans what they expect from the series, so with that said, I would like to see their take on Berserk.

I think I should note that this game doesn’t look terrible, I was just hoping the KT and OF would do something a bit different with the Musou style, but that’s just me. This now brings us back to the gameplay trailer, which can be seen below, courtesy of Koei Tecmo‘s channel.

Berserk is set to come out for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita over in Japan on October 27th. The West will lose the PS3 version and will gain a PC variant via Steam sometime this Fall.

    From should probably have gotten Berserk, seeing as how Dark Souls is so heavily influenced by it.

    Platinum Games would be a good choice for action game, but they tend to do stuff that’s more… unique and over-the-top, I guess. They don’t have any medieval games under their belt, do they?

    I can’t imagine CD Projekt Red doing Berserk, at all. Their games tend to suffer from bizarre technological issues, like bad control. The Witcher strikes me as more of a Mass Effect kind of game. People likely play it for the story, cutscenes and character interactions above everything else.

    I saw a stream of a JP girl playing through the NiOh demo and didn’t like the feel of it or how the main character looks like The Witcher. But that’s just me.

    Koei Tecmo… I don’t have a great impression of them in general. Tecmo keeps pulling annoying shit that makes me regret ever spending money on them. I hear Koei’s past Musou games tend to be generic/boring. That’s not good.
