    Default Berserk Musou/Berserk Warriors. Simply unexpected and intriguing.



    Some of you may not even care about this and I barely have hype for this. But still intrigues me.

    Koei Techmo, creators of Dynasty Warriors and Dead or Alive, recently released a teaser for a game release based of the manga series, Berserk.

    To those who don't know Berserk, it is the manga that inspired the creation of the Dark Souls series in of which is full of references to the manga. The story is a dark fantasy and takes the typical "emo protagonist with dark backstory" to a whole new level which groomed him into a badass. The protagonist, Guts (named after being found by mercenaries in the guts of his hanged and decaying mother), is one eyed, one armed and wields a giant double edged sword that is longer, thicker and, according to wikia, four times heavier than Final Fantasy's Buster Sword(which canonically weighs 100 pounds).
    He battles hordes of demons on a daily basis which makes for a good concept for a Dynasty Warrior styled game. But it is interesting to see how the developers would turn from a colorful and somewhat silly game to the serious and dark tone of the Berserk universe.

    Me neither. But this is Koei style. The more the hype, the less gameplay they show in early announcements.

    Late response, whoopsie.
    That's more like it. Still doesn't show THAT much, but it's better. Looks interesting, but so far I can't really say much. It has a potential to be a fun little hack&slash game, something like DMC, perhaps. Really looks like Dynasty Warriors with a Berserk reskin, though. I hope there will be something to make it more unique.

    Ehh they weren't the best but I didn't hate them. I'm talking about a new series that just started, its covering the black swordsman arc which is pretty cool but its in the same cgi style as the movies sooo...

    Those movies felt like they existed just to get everyone up to scratch. Great soundtrack though I ain't complaining.

    Well, I'll be damned. Griffith is a playable character.
    It seems like the game will even cover the Falconia Arc.
