The game will combine the typical Warriors gameplay experience with elements taken from the manga and anime series to create something unique that will please fans of the brutal Berserk world. Multiple playable characters will also be in, in true Warriors tradition, giving the whole experience more variety.
“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.”
