Berserk Musou | oprainfall

Well, it’s finally happening — after a series of collaborations including Fist of the North StarOne Piece, and even the fantasy novel series The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Koei Tecmo division Omega Force has revealed a collaboration that some anime and manga fans could have only dreamed of: Berserk Musou. Kentaro Miura’s long-running cult fantasy manga has had two video game adaptations of note: the underrated Dreamcast game Sword of the Berserk: Guts’ Rage and the not-released-outside-of-Japan Millennium Falcon Arc: Chapter of the Holy Demon War. Omega Force first released a teaser trailer on their Japanese site for the title, which contains the following disclaimer: “This trailer contains extreme content. Would you like to view it?” And the short teaser trailer seems to be exactly what Berserk fans were hoping for in celebration of the series’ 20th anniversary.

Without giving too much away, we see a Brand of Sacrifice glowing red – and without spoilers, fans know this plays a very prominent role in a certain story arc. This is exciting news, for sure. Koei Tecmo’s American and European divisions have also posted trailers, confirming a Western release. For Western regions, Koei Tecmo is calling the game simply Berserk [Working Title] for now. You can check out the trailer for the latest Berserk collaboration below. (Note that it is an age-restricted video.)

Berserk Musou is scheduled to hit Japan on the PlayStation 3, PS4 and Vita in 2016, with a Western release date to follow on the PS4, Vita and Steam.

About Will Whitehurst

Will joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign soon after news broke of that infamous French interview about Xenoblade. Subsequently, he got actively involved and became a staff member in July/August 2011. He is currently the head of the Japanese translation team, and loves to play, discuss, debate and learn more about games. Will gravitates towards unconventional action games and RPGs, but plays pretty much anything except Madden. He is also currently attending college, honing his Japanese skills and preparing for medical school. (Coincidentally, Trauma Center is one of his favorite game series of all time.)
