Koei Tecmo’s Berserk New Screenshot Confirms Serpico As Playable Character
Last week, Koei Tecmo confirmed that the upcoming game based on the manga and anime series Berserk, currently in development by Omega Force, is going to be released in the West sooner than anticipated. However, it seems like we are not done with new announcements regarding the game anytime soon, as another playable character has been confirmed today.
A few hours ago, Japanese magazine Famitsu confirmed with a brand new screenshot that Serpico is going to be among the Berserk playable characters. This is not exactly surprising for those who have been reading Berserk, but it's still nice to receive a confirmation. Also, this week's issue of the Japanese magazine confirms that Schierke will also be a playable character, something that we already knew thanks to past screenshots.
As mentioned above, Berserk has been confirmed for the West for PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game, which has yet to receive an official title for its Western release, will combine the one versus thousands play style of the Warriors franchise with elements from the Berserk series to better bring the series' unique world to life.
“Berserk (working title) 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.”
Berserk will launch this Fall in North America and Europe on PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
