Already, most of us are licking our lips in anticipation for the new Berserk anime due to start next week and now we are over the moon to announce that a game is in the works, heavily inspired by the anime and manga! The games working title is ‘Berserk’ for now and Koei Techmo already released a teaser trailer for it.

Making a game based on Berserk is a great idea since our hero, Guts has been slaying fiends and demons with a huge sword for over 27 years now and many of us are itching to play a new game based on this fearless swordsman. There have been games based on Berserk before Berserk: Guts’ Rage for the Dreamcast and Berserk: Millennium Falcon Hen Seima Senki no Shō for Playstation 2 but this new project, which is a spin-off of Omega Force’s Dynasty Warriors series will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC via Steam, making it a lot more accessible for fanatiks that want to get lost in a sword frenzy in a dark fantasy world. The game will be out sometime this year. Watch this space for more detail!
