Koei Tecmo revealed new information for the upcoming Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. The most notable tidbit is the “Endless Eclipse” game mode. In this mode, you fight wave after wave of enemies as you take on various missions.  The mode gets gradually more difficult, though Koei Tecmo promises “those who manage to withstand the challenge will find themselves better equipped to tackle the main game mode.”

Besides the “Endless Eclipse” Mode, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk also adds the use of sub-weapons for each character. However, unlike a main weapon, the sub-weapon has a cooldown time after use, so players must use this extra weapon wisely. Some of the sub-weapons include a crossbow and arm cannon for Guts, rush attacks for Zodd, and magical spells for Schierke.
