Title: Berserk Musou (PS3, PS4, PC)
Post by: Uriel on June 10, 2016, 10:08:18 AM
Edit -- Review: http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=15006.msg246109#msg246109

So, Omega Force opened a new teaser site a few days ago, which hinted that the next Musou game would be the "Baddest/Evilest in Musou history." People have been scratching their heads.

The site updated recently, to include this:

(http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/omega_new/img/movie3.gif)

Kind of Berserk-esque if you don't mind my saying. There is nothing confirming it at this point. However, if you Inspect Elements on the page, it has 'anime' in the code. They've done plenty of franchise crossovers before... why not for the upcoming Berserk anime?

Anyway. This might be quite unlikely. Just 'wishful thinking' I suppose. Watch this space.

It's either Berserk or Attack on Titan.

It's either Berserk or Attack on Titan.

I thought about that. But it seems too soon since Koei Tecmo released a Shingeki game. That game isn't even out in the US yet until August. So announcing a new game so soon would be bad business IMO. And the visuals don't quite fit that shows theme.

Of course it might not be (and probably won't be) either.

If not for the recent anime, I'd call this a longshot. But the timing makes sense, and I can see how a Berserk Musou game could work (imagine it with Griffith's apostle army as playable characters). That being said, based just on what they're saying, it could be almost anything. The teaser says it will be "the most brutal title in Musou history." Berserk is brutal, but so are maaaaany other series. Or it might not be a licensed property (imagine!)

Here's the site, which has a reveal planned on June 13: http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/omega_new/

Yes please! As long as the cast of playable characters is long and thoughtful, I'll be buying. I'll try not to get my hopes up.

Would make sense. There's a concerted marketing push going on, and a game would fit in nicely with the rest. Plus that genre, with its focus on 1 vs 10000 action and lack of story, would make for an easy adaptation. Of course that doesn't mean it would be good.

I am a total sucker for the One Piece musou games. I reckon, with the right selection of characters, it could be satisfying.

they're like dynasty warriors, you clear waves and waves of enemies and face a boss at the end of the level, they have different playable characters too. check out one piece pirate warriors, samurai warriors, fist of the north star ken's rage, that type of game

Despite the tastelessness of the trailer, this just got me significantly more hyped than anything the new anime has produced! Now let's hope we get some decent/diverse characters and an expansive list of stages.
Title: Re: Berserk Musou game...?
Post by: Dar Klink on June 13, 2016, 02:50:29 AM
Aww yeah, the fact that it's coming to the west and on Steam is awesome! I don't know if Berserk lends itself to a Musou series exactly, I mean Guts mowing through waves of enemies fits, but these games always have tons of playable characters, it's weird thinking of Serpico, Isidro, and Farnese fighting hundreds of enemies. Either way, I'm excited.

Buuuut.... using Casca's rape scene to promote the game is really fucking dumb and tasteless. Seriously? Couldn't they have just shown Guts suiting up or a shot moving up the Dragon Slayer or literally anything else from the series?
Title: Re: Berserk Musou game...?

Well that was just straight up distasteful.

Zero excitement, too, because I don't care about musou games. Oh well.

Post by: Cyrus Jong on June 13, 2016, 02:57:56 AM
Yeah, I'm not really getting hyped either. Not only was the trailer absolutely disgusting, but I really have no faith in this product. Anime tie-in games are no different than movie tie-ins; rushed pieces of crap purely made for the sake of advertisement.
Title: Re: Berserk Musou game...?

Hard to believe someone thought it would be a good idea to release that as a teaser trailer. This recent Berserk media marketing push has been a disaster.

Can't really say much more than echo the aforementioned sentiments. Excited/piqued interest in a Dynasty Warriors style Berserk video game, but my god what shit choice of subject matter to use for an announcement trailer.

Post by: Slime_Beherit on June 13, 2016, 03:40:00 AM
First, Zelda, then Dragon Quest, and now Berserk! All my favorite series are being turned into a musou... Can't wait for Dark Souls Musou  :schierke:

It's funny that I just finished listening to the 8-4 Play podcast, and they were talking about the teaser site potentially being about a Star Wars Musou cause the description sounded like Darth Vader. I'm guessing the site was talking about a sword wielding man in black.

I wonder which one will look better the Anime or this games cutscenes?

This exactly. What kind of absolute moron thought this would make for an appropriate trailer? That actually lowers my anticipation if anything. I hope the game itself isn't that tasteless.

Isn't it obvious ?
Sure, it grabs the attention of people, and fans know about this scene too, but what about the people who haven't gotten introduced to the series yet? They take a very important scene from the Manga and put it in a context in which it can be understood completely wrong. Nonethless, i won't let this get too much into my head. I look forward to the future trailers, especially concerning the gameplay.

I wonder which part of the story will be playable though...

I really hope that Hirasawa Susumu is involved in making the soundtrack for the game, do you guys think there will be a good chance that he will or no?

We can only speculate, but i doubt it. At most, we may get one song though.

Post by: Tabris on June 13, 2016, 03:42:58 PM
Not at all impressed with this. I'm happy for the people who enjoy these types of games, but I haven't cared for them since I bought Dynasty Warriors 2 when it was brand new on PS2 and there was nothing else really to buy. These types of games just bore me. But who knows, it could be a surprise and maybe I'll love it. Not like there was any gameplay shown.

Which brings me to the trailer. What the fuck, really? That was pretty much the most tasteless and terrible choice. Trying to entice people with Casca's rape in fancy CGI? Enough people already have misunderstandings about the series when it comes to 'big man with a sword', 'obnoxious amounts of gore' and 'rape, rape ,rape', this doesn't help anything.

With a series that has the sheer amount of amazing artwork, story, action and intrigue, they go with that. Stay classy guys. 

I am interested enough that a modern Berserk game is even being made and I'll pay attention to it at least. At worst, I might buy it for $5 during a Steam sale.

I don't think this is any indication that they'll be faithful to the source material. As a reminder, the source material doesn't have slimy tentacles groping Casca, it has claws ripping her flesh and leaving bloody wounds all over her body.

What's wrong with it?

You make it hard for me to refrain from making "slowish" jokes here... If you've never heard of Berserk, just based on the trailer, what would you think the game is about? That's what's wrong with it. It has no point. It takes the most sensitive scene of the entire manga and uses it purely gratuitously.

Yeah, we've talked about it a few times. It's always made sense.  It's just a hard thing to get excited about, really. They aren't great games.

I expect: Big battles across Berserk's history, with various playable characters. While I'm sure you'll be able to play as Guts, going a bit further, playing as the Skull Knight during something like the attack on Flora's mansion would be pretty awesome, as would playing as Zodd, able to transform, etc. Or, hell, why not: Gaiseric!  :ubik:

Bob, if we got an official list comparable to yours, I'd be so happy! Of course, we can't forget all Skully either :badbone:

I would imagine that some characters would just have costume changes instead of being divided up into entirely different factions. They have potential to have such an amazing cast. Does anyone know how well they did the other anime musou casts? I'm just worried we'll get like 10 characters max.

They did a great job I think with the One Piece Kaizoku Musou games. I wonder if each character will have an array of different skills and attacks, just like they did with the Strawhats and other pirates.

This will definitely be an interesting take on a Berserk game. I can imagine playing Zodd and transforming in his apostle form whenever I please to smash in skulls  :zodd:

Interview with Hisashi Koinuma (http://dengekionline.com/elem/000/001/297/1297725/) found on Reddit. Google translate is pretty rough so I don't want to speculate too much, but it would seem the game will go beyond the Golden Age, and this was a joint effort (as if there was any doubt) coinciding with the anime production. Apostle transformations were mentioned, but I'm not sure in what capacity--possibly as large scale bosses.

If it's a Berserk version of Hyrule Warriors, that's all I'll need, fighting armies of trolls and apostles as my favourite characters. But I am sick of these game trailers that don't show actual gameplay, though if the graphics are anything to go by it looks far better than the upcoming anime.

Some info from GAF:

Quote
some info from the magazines. I don't know Berserk so not sure with some of the terms

-The game takes place from golden age upto black swordsman
-Some scenes from 1997 anime and movie are used, as well as brand new stuff for the game. There will be a lot of scenes.
-the game is not directly tied with the newly airing Berserk anime. The game is made so even people who are not familiar with Berserk can enjoy
-There are huge boss battles, 1v1 against boss, fighting against small enemies and boss popping up during the battle
-lots of boss characters in the game, like zodd and bull/ox monster.
-Guts' fighting style changes as the story progresses in the manga, and the game will reflect that in the gameplay
-As with other Musou games, Guts is not the only playble character.
-the game's visual style will be similar to the poster
-The core target audience for the game is the fans of the original manga. But newcomers will also be able to enjoy the game.
-Japan and West have different restrictions for gore/erotic. Japan is more strict on gore stuff, while West is more strict on erotic stuff. So they want to get the balance right while staying true to the original.
-they will release a video featuring Guts soon.

That seems a bit vague and makes me apprehensive (do they mean the story arc, or Guts' character arc?). I'd really like to see content up through Millennium Falcon. Maybe have the final stage the battle at Vritannis. It would make sense seeing as how all the major characters are present in one place. But maybe that's asking too much :schierke:

But to be completely honest, I'm just worried I won't get to play as Serpico with the sylph sword and cloak :serpico:

One on one fights with boss monsters eh? That sounds quite interesting, if they are taking this approach I hope they make this game feel more heavier than the recent Warriors games. An example would be Nioh, another game being made by Koei Techmo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AzJ-vPXWOs

Then again, without the feeling of ripping apart whordes of enemies with ease it may not feel like a Warriors game.

I don't know why, but I am getting a premonition that we will get the later story arcs and characters in the form of downloadable content. Like have a look at the sheer amount of it for their newest Warriors game. http://www.zelda.com/hyrule-warriors/dlc/

Maybe it's speculative and perhaps so, but I still cant shake this feeling.

What I wouldn't give to battle Zodd as Skull Knight before the gates of Abyss/Eclipse.

Pure hack and slash action games dont do it for me, but then I imagine Berserk as an rpg i cant imagine it as anything other than story driven rpg. Which in itself is fine, but i can only imagine how weak the rpg elements would be when you consider guts has maybe 3-4 weapons , and two of those are just swords. Or two armours etc.

Also, do we know if this is releasing in Japan first and then some months later in West or does it have a simultaneous release?

I wouldn't mind if they will stop around The Black Swordsman arc to save the other arcs for the future games. Pretty great if they will make falcon of the millennium empire arc in the 2nd sequel for this game and add The Berserk armor there too. It would be EPIC.

But all I'm really happy about is they finally decided to make a new videogame now + new anime. This series has came back to life :guts:

Barring the Pachinko (which I have no access to ... still want to play it cos it's so over the top), this'll be the first time I'll get to play a Berserk game as it is released. So, I'm excited about that part!

Speaking of the game play, I have no experience with Dynasty Warriors/Musou (had to look it up), so I don't know if I'll like/hate it or be good/suck at it but I'm up for the challenge.

Pretty much the same thing for me. I have never played any of the previous Berserk games considering that I don't own a dreamcast nor a Japanese version of ps2 (and too lazy to get it chipped etc) So I'm glad they don't limit it to ps4 and other recent platforms. I have a ps3 and have no intention on getting a ps4 for a long time. So I might get that game.

The Warriors franchise as a whole is fun and enjoyable, especially more so when you have a few mates around to play the game online or offline with. It's main selling point is definately the whole aspect of taking out droves of the enemy army with flashy techniques and with energetic rock music to accompany it. Does it's job fairly well as entertainment, but it's kinda like Marmite in a way. Where you either dislike these types of games or like them, I recomend trying to demo a Warriors game to see if it's your cup of tea.

Pure hack and slash action games dont do it for me, but then I imagine Berserk as an rpg i cant imagine it as anything other than story driven rpg. Which in itself is fine, but i can only imagine how weak the rpg elements would be when you consider guts has maybe 3-4 weapons , and two of those are just swords. Or two armours etc.

Generally-speaking Berserk doesn't lend itself to videogames well because it's so tightly crafted it leaves no room for the kinds of liberties a game demands. The DC game was the ideal scenario, a heavily story-driven game taking place in a side-story done by Miura with creative design by Miura as well. The gameplay was somewhat lacking but everything else was stellar. Barring another game like that (which is never happening IMHO), a straightfoward action game without too much focus on the story is the least problematic adaptation they could do.

Post by: Feeblecursedone on June 17, 2016, 06:30:43 PM
Probably. If they can nail gameplay/action properly, it should be a solid game. There's also opportunity for good visuals as well, considering Berserk has some interesting environments. Castles, evil looking woods, abyss, etc.

OoOo  :ubik: thanks for this, reveals quite a bit of information. I am quite relieved to see that they will indeed try to make gameplay "that makes you feel the impact of your hits" and that they are said to be recreating many many scenes within the manga. Also quite surprised that the game is near completion too I would of thought this game to be released by 2017 tbh.

As everyone knows Berserk is both a very Gorey and erotic manga and so we want to reflect that in the game itself too.

That translation isn't very accurate, so take it with a grain of salt. The original question says the trailer was "risqué" and then the interviewer says he feels that suggestive, grotesque and dark elements can't be avoided with Berserk. It's really a protracted way of asking the director about any potential censorship issues, which is why the following question (that PlayAsia didn't translate for some reason) asks what the rating of the game will be (it's CERO D which is Mature in the US).

The likes of Schierke right. In the original work there's already a setting prepared for elementals like Fire, Water, Wind etc, so I think we've made a Warriors filled with fantasy factors without impossibility, so please look forward to the characters other than Guts.

Schierke mage confirmed playable? :D I hope they put her flood spell, and I wouldnt be surprised if they took some spells from other characters and gave it to her to enhance her arsenal ( i hope not but you never know )

Im not sure how I would feel if she could summon a kundalini or soemthing like that.

also, I hope Locus, Irvine and Grunbeld become playable too other than Zodd.

A 2016 JP release date eh? Judging from their newest warriors game (Hyrule Warriors) we may get a EU/NA version a month later. But seeing as Hyrule Warriors had a huge demand in the west, I would expect to wait a similar amount of time as the OP3 warriors game. So about 5-6 months I guess.

Here are a few more details via NeoGaf:

Quote
-The game takes place from golden age up to black swordsman
-Some scenes from 1997 anime and movie are used, as well as brand new stuff for the game. There will be a lot of scenes.
-the game is not directly tied with the newly airing Berserk anime. The game is made so even people who are not familiar with Berserk can enjoy
-There are huge boss battles, 1v1 against boss, fighting against small enemies and boss popping up during the battle
-lots of boss characters in the game, like Zodd and bull/ox monster.
-Guts' fighting style changes as the story progresses in the manga, and the game will reflect that in the gameplay
-As with other Musou games, Guts is not the only playable character.
-the game's visual style will be similar to the poster
-The core target audience for the game is the fans of the original manga. But newcomers will also be able to enjoy the game.
-Japan and West have different restrictions for gore/erotic. Japan is more strict on gore stuff, while West is more strict on erotic stuff. So they want to get the balance right while staying true to the original.
-they will release a video featuring Guts soon.

From the same guy on the Koei Warriors forum:
Quote
-#Berserk Warriors dev progress is 70% as of this week. First print incentive is an extra costume for Casca drenched in water.
-#Berserk Warriors has 2 directors 川合大 Kawai & 河原淳 Kawahara (can't determine their firstnames yet), both of them follow Berserk for long.
-The reason why there are 2 directors for #Berserk Warriors is because Producer Koinuma is very busy now that he's also COO of Koei Tecmo.
-Many moves from original #Berserk works are being assigned to △ (Charge) attacks in Berserk Warriors
-Guts' sub-weapon will unlock accordingly as story progresses in #Berserk Warriors. In Golden Age arc he doesn't have prosthetic arm yet.
-Once Guts has his prosthetic arm in #Berserk Warriors he'll be able to do things like shooting cannons. Also the Berserker Armor is in.
-Giant bosses in #Berserk Warriors are being handled in a different approach from Zelda/Hyrule Warriors.
-#Berserk Warriors will also include some footages of the 2012 movie version in the game. Game size is approaching PS4 BD disc space limit.
-Koei Tecmo will be releasing #Berserk Warriors for #PS3 in Digital-only in Japan. Yes, even Japan gets Digital-only.
-Schierke is also shown in #Berserk Warriors 1st Famitsu batch. Game's storyline confirmed at least from Golden Age to Schierke's appearance.
-First confirmed locations in #Berserk Warriors

I do hope the cannon shot is limited to like one per stage, otherwise it might become too broken. I never played any Dynasty warriors game, so I dunno how it functions. It would be cool though if we could return to Godot's place for repair and upgrades, or maybe even Rickert could help.

I do hope though, when they release the US or European version, they have the options for Japanese audio / English subs.  Really curious about how they will incorporate all these different cut scenes.  Can't wait for gameplay vids!!!

I think a lot of people here might not be familiar with what the Musou franchise is all about. Just to be very clear: they have not historically been quality games. The core concept is fine, but those are games that are by nature very repetitive, and they have been sloppily remade again and again and again until the point where the only way they can be sold anymore is through skins: Fist of the North Star, One Piece, Dragon Quest, Zelda... and now Berserk.

Apparently Hyrule Warriors was pretty neat, but remember this likely had Nintendo execs overlooking its development. Nothing guarantees the Berserk version will be as good. Due to the intricate story of Berserk they're pushing themselves to change the formula a bit and that could be good, but you guys should probably hold your expectations in check.

I appreciated the second Fist of the North Star and Dragon Quest: Heroes. Hyrule Warriors looked pretty good from the hour I spent on it.
Regarding this Berserk version... well, I'm clearly not expecting a masterpiece and I already know that it will be very repetitive since it's a Musou.
I also know they will take a LOT of liberty in term of faithfulness but it's been 12 years since the last Berserk game and so, I'm very glad to finally see a new one.

All of the Warriors games that have came out the past 2 years have all been relativley decent, none of them performing horribly. Most of the reviews mostly go on about the formula not changing throughout the years, which may not impact most users here due to not having prior experience with the Warriors series.

I'm fully expecting this to just be a fun hack and slash with some minor cut scenes between to stitch together a story. And honestly, I'm fine with that. I'm not expecting a Bioware quality game, just a fun combat game that allows me to fight armies from my favorite series. On that front I think it'll be a success.

But yeah, if the hack/slash is fun, that's all that we need really. And Hopefully they give us an apostle to play with, like Zodd.

Ah yes, Casca as the token fanservice girl. Exactly like she was portrayed in the manga ...  :schierke:

Could they really think of no better way to promote their game?

Saw this on reddit - http://www.play-asia.com/berserk-author-kentaro-miura-supervising-koei-s-berserk-game-aims-to-keep-the-ga/5f/747xd

Quote
Is Mr. Miura interested in the game adaptation of his creation?

Koinuma: Since we announced Koei will be working on a Berserk Warriors, Mr. Miura has sent us a New Years Postcard every single year haha. Mr. Miura is a man grounded in reality and he really wanted the Warriors feeling to remain, but with a Berserk flair, he's even supervised the creation of the game from the very start.

Is this real or is it another poor translation?

Take a guess. :slan:

Here's the relevant part: "Mr. Miura thinks the depiction of the world is very important, so even though it's a Musou title it should feel "real". So I've already been supervised by him in many ways."

Basically Miura gave the guy some pointers and feedback, but he didn't really "supervise" the game.

I think the colours are a bit muted honestly. I know Berserk is gritty and dirty and life in the trenches ain't pretty, but I hope the variety of destinations are a little more interesting to look at. But overall I like the look of what's to come.

This game is looking like its turning into an upgraded replica of the Japanese PS2 Berserk game. The game ended right after obtaining the Berserk armor and fighting Grunbeld and Zodd. Most likely we will be forced to buy some sort of season pass for new areas months after the initial release, but that's probably not going to happen. Most Musou games I've seen are what you get.

This didn't make much sense. This game looks like it'll be pretty different from the PS2 game aside from, you know, being a Berserk game. Also, you just said that something is "most likely" and then that it's "probably not going to happen" in the same sentence.

On a side note... I wonder if we will finally get to see/play a Golden Age Bakiraka + Wyald.  That escape would be really fun to play.  I remember that one chase level in the Dreamcast game was awesome.

All I'm saying is I'm bummed they aren't making any further progress in the story and they're stopping around the same point as the PS2 game did.  It's cool they're adding previous arcs into the game, but to stop at the Millennium Arc again? It's disappointing to me.

Still gonna buy it and play the crap out of it either way.

i definitely think we will get to fight him, if you ever played fist of the north start ken's rage 2, you'd know that there are alot of boss battles in that game, ones that revolve around lesser insignificant characters as well as major ones. they made you fight people who are complete fodder, just going by that, i highly doubt they'll skip someone as cool and strong as Boscogn  :badbone:

Uh....so why aren't these guys making the anime again? (no, I'm serious, even if it's videogame graphics this looks SOOOO much better, and I don't even care if they'd skip stuff, cause at the very least it looks like the material they ARE featuring actually could be faithful to the manga, that's my impression anyway, might be wrong...)

Anyway I just gotta express how nice it is to actually see something positive from Berserk for once (besides the manga itself). Lifts your spirits a bit, especially after reading about the upcoming anime in the other thread, so depressing.

On a sidenote, not that I was expecting anything else but Im not really a big fan of the whole thing where Guts rams the DS into the ground and all the trolls within about a 30 feet radius goes flying, that seems more like a move a magic user would do with their wand or something... But that's just nitpicking I guess... Gotta keep low expectations now....low expectations....low expectations...

Edit: also, a possible explanation as to why Guts doesn't have the white patch of hair as he wears the berserker armor could be because you might be able to play as different versions of Guts at different stages, it feels like a thing that would be possible in a DW game (who knows, you might even be able to customize your character in some ways, really just throwing it out there though...

This game has much better designs that the movies and the new anime (sadly)

Well, I hope the playable characters other than Guts and Griffith will be

- Skull Knight
- Zodd
- Casca
- Farnese
- Serpico
- Azan
- Isidro
and the other members of Band of the Falcon if it's possible. I also hope they focus on Guts costume. For example in The Golden Age they make his design different than Black Swordsman and the others.

I like the white swordsman costume. It reminds me of Diablo 2 where an item's color would leak onto other things like the character's hair or skin. It looks like Guts is wearing most of the Sigon's Complete Steel set.

None of it its worth any money. Micro dlc's like costumes are the bane of gaming. Charging for individual character is already pushing it, something Disgaea is quite good( read bad ) at. So I hope they wont have way too much of these 0.99/1 $ DLC's.

That's a bit harsh. As long as they're cheaply priced (sometimes free!) it really makes no impact. Anyway, looks like these costumes are incentives for purchasing from specific retailers. Is there really anything wrong with that?

As for the bane of gaming, I'd say that'd be "pay to win" style dlc but I digress.

Post by: Feeblecursedone on July 04, 2016, 09:47:38 AM
If they're free, its fine, then its a personal choice, but when you have dozen of such micro-transaction dlc's for 1.99/2.99 that could have been a game unlockable like in the good old times, then it becomes a problem. A lot of DLC's like these are already coded into the game, and you dont have the access to them until you pay for it.

Check out Disgaea on psn and you'll see what Im talking about. I doubt they'll have hundreds of such DLC's for Berserk but its still a pain in the ass.

I wish they had an option to unlock additional costumes through playing the game like with Resident Evil series.

Title: Re: Berserk Musou (PS3, PS4, PC)
Post by: Feeblecursedone on July 04, 2016, 09:56:05 AM
Because it is a money grab. It reminds me of Chaos Warriors DLC pack for Warhammer: Total War series. The response was so negative CA was forced to make the DLC free for the first week of the game's release. I dont endorse any of these micro-DLC's.

Then again, if its just costumes , I'll probably overlook it. If its game characters like Irvine, Grunbeld, Locus etc than I probably won't be happy. And many others included.

A list of things I would like to see personally is, unlockable characters like Grunbeld, Irvine, Locus, etc, unlockable artwork from the manga ( repainted for the game purpose ) scenery, character wallpapers, figurines and what not.

Give them time Nildin. We will get bloomers Schierke and swimsuit Schierke and... :rickert: .
I also shat a brick when i saw the ongoing DLC trash for DOA5 "Last" Round on the PSN (how much do the peepshow videos cost?), even a random Musou Waifu,  but i can at least endorse the core gameplay. Can "our" game say the same? Now how about an apology to Metroid fans, eh Team Ninja, and where is NG4? (NG3 Razor´s Edge was a solid 7,5/10 btw.)
What i would give for a Souls, DMC, Ninja Gaiden or even Injustice / Total War clone, to explore a new genre for Berserk, instead.

For those who don't like the Musou genre, Bandai Namco has got you covered (https://twitter.com/RPGSite/status/750059270725525505) with a new character for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CmjKOPFVUAAKfss.jpg)

It was revealed alongside a demo of their new game Tales of Berseria.

That's pretty great. I honestly didn't expect to play as any of the Falcons other than the big three. My only fear is that this confirms that they're spending a decent chunk of time in the Golden Age, when I feel like the biggest potential for this game is the later arcs (namely, apostles...).

I'm also very pleased but no so surprise because Musou games are also well known for their extensive roster.

My only fear is that this confirms that they're spending a decent chunk of time in the Golden Age, when I feel like the biggest potential for this game is the later arcs (namely, apostles...).

Unlike the later arcs, if we got different animated interpretations, we never got to played it. I think that's why i'm actually more excited to play through this chunk of the game.

I'm wondering if the content is gonna be available in a chronological order and so you have to complete a mission to unlock the next.

Is the engine even set up for proper Apostle gameplay integration? My last try were 15. min with Fist of the North Star. Not ever Zelda brought me back, or any of the other anime properties i technically like.

Meh, what does it matter. It's a game, creating a fun game is always more important than following a realistic scenario. I honestly hope we can unlock all characters who were major fighters and then use them in whatever stage later on.

Post by: Feeblecursedone on July 06, 2016, 07:15:10 PM
Disagree. Judging by Guts he had a more difficult time with Boscogn and that's not just cause his sword broke. He said its much harder to fight Boscogn than 100 men. While fighting Silat he found him to be skilled, but more of a circus freak. Boscogn was also able to  fight him on equal ground while Silas was getting dominated no matter which weapon he pulled. I wouldn't underestimate Boscogn if I were you.
It may end up in Silas' victory but no floor wiping is happening.

But of course!  :iva: Honestly I think you're right, its impossible to tell the winner when there's too many unknown variables. I just think based on what we saw of Boscogn's prowess no wiping floors would happen, but an extremely close battle.

Guts had trained very hard for over a year in between fighting Boscone and Silat. The Guts who fought Silat is the same one who fought Wyald and survived the Eclipse. Silat is also a much more versatile fighter. Boscone fought Guts on horseback and had him at a disadvantage when his sword broke, but that's about it. In an open ground, Silat would just dance around his attacks, just like he did when he faced Valancia.

I wouldn't underestimate Boscogn if I were you.

Boscone is dead. Silat isn't. That's all there is to it.

Yeah, during his fight with Wyald various Hawks comment on how unimaginably strong he had become. Still, the strongest man in the Tudor kingdom is a mighty reputation, and pre Eclipse Silat didn't win against a lot of powerful opponents, he beat an exhausted Casca and one large brute, Guts describes Boscogn has an opponent stronger than 100 men, and the second strongest human opponent he'd faced, but I didn't get the same impression from his fight with Silat, he seemed entirely in control.


:schnoz: would beat both of them!

But would he be able to beat them if they had an army of 100 Kundalini and 10 God Hands?

Yeah, but you don't know that. Boscogn is not Valancia, he's for sure stronger and more skilled. Valancia was a one time appear character where as Boscogn was an established Tudor General.

I mean this is rather silly. We simply have no idea how it would end up. But it certainly wouldn't end up in a floor wipe as you made it out to be. This isn't a shounen battle.

Because the story demanded it. Boscogn was a minor character in comparison to Silat.

He became much stronger. The fact he could handle Silat is actually a proof of that.

Yeah, but you don't know that. Boscogn is not Valancia, he's for sure stronger and more skilled. Valancia was a one time appear character where as Boscogn was an established Tudor General.

Sure I don't know that. But I know that Boscone died even though Guts' sword broke, and that Silat lived even though he fought a much stronger Guts who had trained hard for a year. The same Guts who then killed an apostle. Not many people have survived a fight against Guts. That aside, you say Valancia was a "one time appear", but it's not like Boscone had a recurring role himself. He was also, as you say below, a relatively minor character. So sure, Boscone was strong, stronger than Valancia without a doubt. He was the toughest human Guts had faced back then. But that was then. That year of hard training made a big difference, as is made evident in the manga. Then there's the way the characters are set up. Boscone is a heavy hitter; he strikes fast and hard. That's it. Silat is agile, inventive, adaptable, and he moves as well as strikes fast. That makes me believe he would dominate such a fight.

I mean this is rather silly. We simply have no idea how it would end up. But it certainly wouldn't end up in a floor wipe as you made it out to be.

Oh it's silly indeed. The very fact you asked who would win is silly, because it'll never happen and doesn't matter. But you did, so here we are. I say Silat would wipe the floor with him, just like he did with Valancia. I laid out my arguments. That's it.

Because the story demanded it. Boscogn was a minor character in comparison to Silat.

Sure. But I don't believe that supports your argument. If Miura had wanted to, he could have had Boscone survive. The way the story is told should reflect on how we perceive the characters.

Not my site but shouldn´t SK get a separate Berserk Games thread one of these days? 3 games already exist and Omega Force will do a 2nd one, or a Complete Edition down the line. They always do. Even Dragon´s Dogma has official tie-ins. 

I also watched heaps of Jimquisitions recently and he harped on about Musou endlessly, so yeah, i will get the Vita version, i guess. I need something to get the anime out of my mind and the fall EU release convinced me, even if i am a curmudgeon games snob. Jim on Dynasty Warriors´ qualities (Vol.2): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7mavL0uKmI
I wonder how the US voice acting is going to be, in all sorts of ways. The publisher(s) could technically use the existing film / tv cast and fill a few empty chairs on the own, but Musou is infamous for their VA decisions. Not that i will use the US voices.

I agree, it's something I haven't been fond of with the new anime either. I realize that these moments are important for Casca's story development, but it seems like both of these never show how capable of a fighter she is, or as someone who isn't always vulnerable.

It's made of a magical material that from various elements we can be sure is metallic. Wouldn't make much sense for it to be made out of bone, even though it's the Skull Knight's armor. For reference you can check these color illustrations from Miura.

Both would be good, if they do the same order as in the.manga, it means we're going to play golden age Guts and BSM guts alternatively during the story, wich would be good for variation.

I like Musou games especially Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors. Even tho, I never tho KOEI (the company) will make a great job ''so far''

I liked everything i have seen about this game so far. Guts can transform into his wolf form in the gameplay depend on what someone translated the Japanese artical, Zodd also can transform as well.


I also like how Guts has three different versions.
-Golden Age
-Black Swordsman
-Berserk Armor


I know KOEI very well for awhile, and I think this is the best work I've ever seen so far.

They're including the human bullet sequence? Okay, it seems that we are either going to watch it in the form of a cutscene or we will get to play out these events. Such as controlling Zodd and make him through the air avoiding numerous lightning bolts etc. The former is a lot more likely but I am still suprised by it either way. Interesting.

Well, I only said it's a wolf because in the PS2 game Guts in Berserk mode makes Wolf sounds. Not sure if you played that game or not.  :guts:

I've played it, and I don't think you should take a sound effect as being of much importance. Isidro is voiced by a 40-year old Japanese guy in that game, but it doesn't change how I perceive his character.

Even that nonsense aside, a "wolf" just doesn't encompass the different features the Beast has assumed over the years.

Your usage of it wasn't particularly offensive to me. I just tend to correct people on that stuff whenever I see it. I've seen people go as far as calling Guts a "Dog Warrior" and that his armor is his "Wolf Form." So... hopefully you'll see why that kind of thinking is problematic.

I played both Berserk games the dreamcast and PS2, and I'm pretty sure this will be the best.

The only thing I wish to happen now Susumu Hirasawa makes a song for this game. Just like how he made for the both previous ones. SIGN, SIGN 2, Forces 2 and Indra.

Looking forward a new gameplay trailer.

It's going to be really hard to top how cool the Dreamcast was in 1999, for the simple fact it had an original story from Miura (plus amazing graphics). That being said, if they can change the Musou formula deeply enough to adapt it to Berserk, it'll be super fun to play.

Looks fun. Sounds great that we're getting a black swordsman arc in here. I wonder how many characters we'll have by the end? Dynasty Warriors often had two dozen or so. Silat would be great, as would the new or the old Hawks. Or even the Tudor Generals.

Kinda doubting we'll get Shiva though.  :guts:
Title: Re: Berserk Musou (PS3, PS4, PC)
Post by: Dragon Warrior on August 06, 2016, 12:23:31 PM
I don't think Berserk will have dozen of characters like Dynasty Warriors. Because KOEI also made Attack on Titans, First of The North Star and One Piece games.

They didn't have dozen of characters, they were about 10 to 12.  They even made ZELDA into Warriors games and had like 11 character, then they added 6 more characters as DLC.
You can see select screen here

https://d3esbfg30x759i.cloudfront.net/ss/zlCfzTB1Dl88bfcY1h

I don't think Berserk will have dozen. it will be the same as those games I mentioned above. It's actually better to have less characters to have very good and enjoyable movesets. and good story telling too.



So, I think we will have God Hand members as playable but not now, perhaps they will add them later as DLC. Maybe only Femto in the beginning.

Post by: __Bonfire__ on August 07, 2016, 02:00:51 AM
I can guarantee you that God hand won't be playable, and dlc characters are pretty rare in musou games... Griffith might have a femto transformation since he has two different versions.

Honestly, I think the lions' share of the game will be Golden Age content.  There will be Black Swordsman and Millennium Falcon content no doubt, but it likely will not be as much.

Reason being:  They may be withholding such content for the sequel.

Also, it will be interesting to see what the "ending" will be.  Quite possible that the last stage in mostly an entirely different scenario that has Guts fighting Griffith or something.
Title: Re: Berserk Musou (PS3, PS4, PC)
Post by: Kaladin on August 08, 2016, 02:23:37 AM
yeah that's how these musou games usually are, even though they have plenty of content they'll cut it short so they can make a sequel. 2nd game is probably gonna have all the boss fights that they will cut, and some fantasia content. I wouldn't mind this either, another berserk game and more exposure to the series, I'm a happy camper.

I really like the combat tbh, not to mention how Guts has blood + sweating in his face. So far KOEI did great job about that the graphics and the combat.
Even Guts's design looks very very close to his manga appearance.

Yeah, I covered that in my reply. But my point is, this doesn't look like they undertook much effort at all to make the moves look and feel like something Guts would do. And if the moves don't feel like Guts' own, then it may as well be anyone. In which case, it may as well not be Berserk.

I understand what's you're trying to say. But I guess saying ''It may as well not be Berserk'' is a bit too far.
 I remember ''Platinum Games'' was about to make a BERSERK game. I'm pretty sure they would have made better one, not sure why they didn't make it.


Also, there is another thing I didn't like about this video.
In the first gameplay trailer. The graphics were more realistic. Much better CG looking. Not to mention Guts has an eye flash light during his Musou attack just like the manga
(http://pre14.deviantart.net/c82b/th/pre/i/2016/177/c/e/berserk_guts_by_dragonwarrior_h-da7g0j5.jpg)


While in this gameplay... you can even see the cell shading and steady framerate which means the graphics is less realistic.

I believe you're misremembering things. A year ago, a Platinum Games director said on Twitter (https://twitter.com/PG_saito/status/619377368101093377) that he'd like to make a Berserk game. That's different from announcing intent to develop one.

And from what we know from interviews, this Musou game has been in development for about 2 years.

Maybe the first video was the PS4/Steam version, and this is the PS3 one. The first trailer also had dismemberment, more blood, some particle effects on the special attack, and Guts' model looked better in general.

I dunno, I'm with Walter here, I remember seeing some One Piece Musou videos and it looked pretty cool and different, this just looks like a really low effort reskin. But it's too early to tell, I guess. Some of those screenshots looked nice...

I think this was apparent in both trailers, but the Dragonslayer felt quite... Dull (in the sense of it's sharpness) if I am to be honest. When you're hitting hordes of trolls you don't feel like you're cutting them but rather beating them with a big club. Yeah you can dismember them after sufficient damage has been done or use a charge attack to do the same but that does not really help anything either. However I guess I need to just grit my teeth, as killing everything considered fodder with one blow would kinda mess with the balancing I guess.

Also, I hope there are more than just one of those cinematic attacks for each character. As seeing that one face over & over will probably get boring if you plan on using it frequently.

I thought about that too this could be the PS3 graphics, but not really sure about it. I hope it is and the PS4 graphics we get that  Guts's eye flash light. And bettter cape movement. Better graphics in general. Even Guts's design in the first trailer was better.

EDIT:
I can see i this screenshot you can cut the enemies into pieces. Could this be only on PS4 or did they just edit it in the screenshot

Koei has shown demos in the past that look nicer than the finished product (that or they were cutscenes).  They also don't normally like depicting dismemberment from the musou games I've played.  Maybe this game will change that.

I would also bet that each character has a single cinematic special attack.

Though the gamplay footage didn't seem to display a full moveset for Guts.  He should have at least twice as much as what was shown.

In the first trailer of the anime 2016 they used better CGI animation, and here it's exactly the same scenario...

In the first trailer of the anime 2016 they used better CGI animation, and here it's exactly the same scenario...

I'm honestly mostly disappointed with the graphics in the last trailer they showed, they even added those cell shading which made it even worse..

In a little more than 1 day.

I like the combat. Blood and the sweating in his face, and KOEI so far didn't do these stuff before yes I still agree with this

But...  I didn't realize these shading, because they were not so clear. I like Guts's design, much better than the anime.
But these shading are pointless to add, the graphics are still cool but using better CGI for a gameplay ''Trailer'' is just stupid to me.
It's like using these just to attract the audience

Try to understand what i'm trying to say Walter.

Since it's a MUSOU game all characters will be like Guts now..which means (100 men slayer)..  :ganishka:

I wish they make the enemies at least less than Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors and Warriors Orochi. or any other KOEI game.
I expected to see Griffith as a ''fast'' character tho. At least he has that stance from the manga. :griffnotevil:


I'm still annoyed with these cel shading they added, but I guess I will just get over it with the time..
Even tho, the PS2 and dreamcast game they tried to do the graphics realistic as much as they could since it's a videogame without adding any cel shading. And the cape movement is still weird.


Well, i'm still getting this game anyway since I like Musou games and I have always been waiting for so long to have a Berserk game. Been playing Dark Souls a lot cosplaying as Guts just to imagine myself playing Berserk. :sad:



I'm also worried about the boss fights in this game, i mean if they are gonna make boss fight so easy this is really not fun. They should make boss fight kinda challenging, and makes us at least struggle like how Guts struggles when he fights apostles.
They should also add counter, finisher attack (not musou attack).
Like the PS2. The PS2 games the boss fights were the most enjoyable in the whole game imo.
I won't put my hopes high on KOEI after all especially they didn't have lot of games having boss fights.

Pretty standard Koei gameplay, so it's not unexpected.

As with prior Koei games, the main appeal will be playing as certain characters other than the main one, the cutscenes, and the fanservicey banter between characters that would otherwise never interact in the main series.  Maps might be interesting though I don't think there will be that much of an improvement from the PS3 era ones.

I hope there is at least one comic relief character to play as such as Puck.

So, KOEI decided to name this game in the English version as BERSERK & The Band of The Hawk
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01JOC00EK/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1470867565&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40&keywords=berserk+ps4&dpPl=1&dpID=41LDbktPv1L&ref=plSrch#featureBulletsAndDetailBullets_secondary_view_div_1470867788256

The LINK doesnt work for me on PC but it works on my phone, not sure why  :???:

Anyway if u guys can't view it, here's what it says.
Description
Berserk and the Band of the Hawk fuses 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 utilise 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.

Features

Experience the popular Golden Age arc, telling the story of The Band of the Hawk and the fateful meeting between Guts and Griffith.

Feel the weight of your weapon, from the heavy yet powerful Great Sword as Guts or the swift yet deadly swordplay of Griffith.

Take control of not only the powerful swordplay, but the power of Magic as you take on enemies using unique and devastating spells.

Play as not only the Band of the Hawk, but non-human characters such as the deadly Apostles, with each offering their own gameplay styles to enjoy.

Fight for survival in the all new Eclipse Mode. Endless swarms of enemies will appear which can be killed for points, allowing players to compete for the highest score.

They kinda made the game only about Band of The Hawk which means it's looks like it only talk about the golden age while the game contains almost the whole manga story
I also don't see it fitting to name it ''BERSERK and The Band of The Hawk''. I feel like the ''AND'' is no need to be added. At least make it Berserk:Band of The Hawk.

Even tho, I wanted the title to be something badass like The dreamcast game, ''Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage''
Maybe if they made this similar to the Dramcast game something like ''BERSERK:Guts Vengeance''.  It would have been better :guts:

If anything, it suggests that the game will indeed have a primary focus on the Golden Age arc.

Now that they are advertising apostles and suggesting there's more beyond Zodd, I'm kinda hoping the game includes Wyald.  He's more humanoid, can wield a weapon, and his story sequence is very musou-friendly.  At least seems more likely than a playable snail count or any of the other tentacled freaks.

Also with a focus on the Band of the Hawk, it would seem that we might actually get all of the significant names as playable characters, including Rickert, Pippin, and Corkus/Carcas

I'm ''kinda' surprised they didn't make the soundtracks as rock type of soundtracks like Dynasty Warriors (thank god)
Most of KOEI games soundtracks are almost exactly like DW soundtracks.
Just few games don't have this type such as, Samurai Warriors,Legend of Troy and One Piece. Not sure if there are other games like that too.

This berserk game soundtracks type are different than DW. They made the soundtracks kind of ''Medievalish/Knights''which is better imo.



I really REALLY wish they add a Susumu Hirasawa song in the opening. In each Berserk game/anime we need at least one song made by Susumu.


I also hope one of the songs that Susumu Hirasawa will be released in his upcoming album will be for this game at least.

Post by: DanelMotel on August 17, 2016, 10:08:57 PM
As an all around gamer and a huge Dynasty Warriors musou fan, words can't express how hyped I am that Koei Tecmo actually did this. With that being said, I understand why some people might be disappointed because it won't be a one to one experience when it comes to the manga transitioning to a video game. I read some people on gamefaqs complaining that it's not realistic for Guts to kill the amount of enemies that you will be killing in this game, and while I agree, it's better than not having a game at all. Koei Tecmo has seen a lot of success with making games using the fan service of other IP's and while it isn't a one to one transition, it makes a lot of sense. I even remember you guys mentioning it in a podcast as someone else pointed out on this thread.

I think our best chance for the most representative Berserk experience in a game would be the hack n slash genre ala devil may cry, the modern ninja gaiden games, bayonetta, God of War, etc. Platinum Games would be an excellent choice, but they've been slacking hard on their latest games for whatever reason. Those games have a deep and extremely fun combat system, not an excessive amount of enemies, and require a lot of skill to be really good at, portraying Guts and Berserk as a whole more accurately. Another genre I had in mind was a very mature "tales of" game where you have a party, level up, learn new skills etc.

My hype, and ultimately, my experience with this game will depend on how deep they make the combat and how many characters they put in. I'm not looking for super accurate cut scenes etc. although the more fan service the better, I just want them to nail feeling of being powerful and just wrecking things apart with a semi-deep combat system.

So far the best Koei Tecmo game per character has been one piece warriors 3. For every square you press you have up to 2 triangles to follow up with and 3 triangles if you're powered up/transformed. Compared to the usual Dynasty Warriors which they try to make up their depth by adding more characters, however this makes ultimately makes the combat pretty shallow.

I really look forward to this game and I really want to hear and read everybody's opinion on it. I know dynasty warrior games don't have have the best reputation, but I have a blast playing them. They might not be the deepest, smartest, or the best presented, but they scratch an itch that no other genre does, especially when they combine it with my favorite franchises of all time. The main reason why I play these games is to feel powerful and hopefully the combat resembles that of one piece 2 and 3, where there is some animation cancelling and other things to the combat to add depth to the game. I was always hoping this day would come, but I never thought it actually would.

Yes, I mentioned it in a podcast a while back because I'm so smart and knowledge I've basically become an oracle it seemed the most likely scenario. So no surprise at all here. However it doesn't mean the game will be the best thing ever, or that we can't be critical of it. That's why I've tried to tell those unfamiliar with the Musou series to keep their expectations in check, so they wouldn't be disappointed.

And the reason people are bothered isn't because it's not a 1:1 adaptation, which is not something that's even possible (as I've already explained like a thousand times on this forum), it's because the combat itself doesn't feel like Berserk. I think that's understandable, but again, this remains a Musou game and they aren't going to just abandon the formula they've been following for 20 years. Like you say, the positive side of all this is the fan service, the fact we'll be able to play as Zodd and massacre thousands of enemies and so on. I think everyone here recognizes that.

I think our best chance for the most representative Berserk experience in a game would be the hack n slash genre ala devil may cry, the modern ninja gaiden games, bayonetta, God of War, etc. Platinum Games would be an excellent choice, but they've been slacking hard on their latest games for whatever reason. Those games have a deep and extremely fun combat system, not an excessive amount of enemies, and require a lot of skill to be really good at, portraying Guts and Berserk as a whole more accurately.

Indeed, that is the most fitting genre. Unfortunately, it is a lot more expensive to do than just licensing the IP to Koei Tecmo.

Another genre I had in mind was a very mature "tales of" game where you have a party, level up, learn new skills etc.

Leveling up and an RPG skill system? I don't think that would be a good fit.

Wyald is not a bad choice to be playable, the reason why i'm saying that is Grunbeld should be playable.
imo Grunbeld is a better character, has a better personality and a better design. Not to mention Wyald is dead since golden age while Grunbeld is still alive.
Grunbeld is my favorite apostle beside Zodd.

The best thing about this, the game looks like following the manga way better than the animes and movies since Wyald never appeared in these.

Since I have never played any of these games I will reserve my pre-release judgement although I certainly see how it could end up being redundant. However, I was wondering if anyone here can tell me if there is any sort of challenge to these games. I would hate to effortlessly smash on Apostles and hordes of enemies without any sort of difficulty. I usually have to tune new games up to the highest level to get any sort of joy out of playing so if this is going to be a simple button masher ala God of War I will probably lose interest quickly, outside of the novelty of seeing the badass characters.

These kind of games are repetitive. But to take most of the repetitiveness out of these games, they offer different characters who have an assortment of different move combinations and fighting styles. You will be smashing buttons like crazy, but in certain combinations to make the characters do the moves you like. For me personally, I feel if a musou game is based off a series you enjoy (such as what they did with One Piece Musou), these types of games are exciting and fun to be able to play the characters you enjoy.

It will be somewhat of a simple button masher, but that's what these games are all about; mindlessly killing an onslaught of enemies, but with style. Which makes this a perfect game for Berserk.

I wonder if they will make us playing with Guts without armor first before getting berserk armor since Slan broke Guts old armor

Doesn't look to be the case in this game. He's wearing his classic Black Swordsman getup.

Though this game looks to be like other musou games, by which the player is able to customize their character with certain costumes. It's possible that he is wearing the Black Swordsman armor because whoever was playing happened to choose it for this fight and screenshot. If you were to play the original story mode, I would hope they'd have him without his armor during this point in the game.

We shall see...

*EDIT*

Oops! He's wearing the Berserker armor. Which means there is a chance I guess.

So they won't add Fantasia arc. I saw that coming for awhile. Even if that arc is one of the most arcs that i really enjoyed reading it in the manga :sad:

But it looks like they are saving it for a 2nd sequel

If the gameplay is as boring and monotonous as other musou games, the fact that there is no diversity in casca's and judeau's attacks (just slashing and throwing knifes) will drain the enjoyment of the gameplay completely.
I'll still play it though, cause I am a sucker for Berserk, and I'll enjoy it, akin to playing with a Guts action figure.

Casca moveset look ok to me. But they need to nerf the range.For example here she made that kick and the soliders in the left and the right ones got effected by that kick even if Casca didn't even touch them. But the range is just wide for a kick. It isn't a sword it's a kick so it shouldn't be like this.

In all seriousness, I really like the look of this. My biggest concern is the character roster. We've got a BIG group of awesome, diverse fighters in the Berserk universe. So far, as far as I can tell, we can play as Guts, Casca, Judo, Wyald, Griffith, Zodd, Schierke, and Serpico. There are some real gems missing!

I'm curious who you guys would want to see added.

It's called the Urumi and i think we'll definitely see it. It's probably going to be one of the main weapons and not even a special, it works perfectly in a musou game, chakram spam is gonna a thing too

Yeah.. I'd say that's pushing it a bit. The fight would be too cramped since they're in a sewer. You'd be hitting the walls 90% of the time playing Guts. CLANG CLANG CLANG

Post by: DanelMotel on August 29, 2016, 04:46:55 AM
Since I have never played any of these games I will reserve my pre-release judgement although I certainly see how it could end up being redundant. However, I was wondering if anyone here can tell me if there is any sort of challenge to these games. I would hate to effortlessly smash on Apostles and hordes of enemies without any sort of difficulty. I usually have to tune new games up to the highest level to get any sort of joy out of playing so if this is going to be a simple button masher ala God of War I will probably lose interest quickly, outside of the novelty of seeing the badass characters.

Exactly what both DANGERDOOOOM and Aazealh posted. It's not about the "difficulty" per say but the carrot that's going to keep you going is leveling up to kill enemies that you could kill before faster, to beat stages faster, to play in a difficulty that you could not play before, etc. you're basically one up'ing yourself and the depth comes from the different play styles and moves that the characters offer.

In a devil may cry game the thing that's most important is your execution, while in these games it's the least important although it still matters. I think that Sengoku Basara and One piece warriors 3 are one of the best musou games because they're not brain dead and have some executional gameplay depth to them. I think Berserk will offer cancel your animations with grenades/arrows or a dash, which gives the shallow gameplay SOME depth unlike traditional Dynasty Warrior games.

But yea, basically it all comes down to doing what you did before, but more effecient, basically mopping the floor against the AI so hard that you feel like a God cuz it's almost game breaking.

Ughh im so hyped!

No of course, but it still falls into the musou genre, just like that NIS bleach game, a new FATE STAY NIGHT game, and other obscure games. 1 vs 1000+ = musou genre. While Koei has stepped up their game (no pun intended) with their gameplay mechanics, Sengoku Basara really outshines everything that they do IMO. I love how Sengoku Basara has these niche things that each character can exploit like roll cancelling being effective with some characters and each character have these very nuanced "secrets" that aren't really explained and as a community you have to figure out. I also like the idea of being able to have moves readily available and no penalty in using them if you want to use them in succession, versus having to hit square 4x and then triangle.

I think a Berserk musou game with Sengoku Basara would be even more hype, but Koei will do fine.

So, magic = lots of area of effect spells. And there's yet again some random Musou-ness happening at 17 seconds where she teleports across the screen.

I was hoping for some appearances from the major elementals or even the four kings.

Pretty sure that's what the final spell is supposed to be -- four different colored lights that shoot to the sky and suddenly everything on screen gets damaged. She also calls out "四方の仁 (http://jisho.org/search/%E5%9B%9B%E6%96%B9%E3%81%AE%E4%BB%81)." Aside from that the only thing representing what happens in the actual series is her blowing the hair to project fire.

Sorry, I meant actually seeing them, but I guess it makes sense that they aren't visible. But yeah, it seems pretty obvious that her [ultimate] would be the four kings (I don't know why it would be anything else, honestly).

From a "faithfulness to Berserk" point of view it actually makes no sense. That spell is purely defensive in nature, it's static, and it only affects astral creatures. Her "ultimate" should rather be summoning a local spirit like the Lady of the Depths or the Lord of Rotting Roots. But obviously it would require more care and customisation than they are willing to expend.

And I get the feeling they sincerely tried to honor the manga with the spells, doing the best they could within the limits of the game. I salute them for that.

It's also nice to see a waterspout spell, a nod to the great magician and true hero of Berserk :daiba: (:ganishka:).

Whew, that was not great. Zodd isn't a sluggish fighter. When he and Guts were fighting on the Hill of Swords, Rickert remarked they were moving so fast that he couldn't track their movements -- it was just a whirlwind. This Zodd looks like he's been Zangief'd for some reason. And that special attack at the end, with the tornado making soldiers spin around, looked more like a game bug than an intentional effect.

They did get two small details right, I was surprised to see. He emits fog when he transforms, which promptly disappears, but hey, progress! And his red eye has a light-tracing effect when he moves, which calls to mind the Hill of Swords fight, even though the purpose of that effect in the manga was to show how fast he was moving.

Still, overall, not at all what I had in mind when I imagined playing as Zodd.

The whirlwind is weird, but I guess Zodd doesn't exhibit any "super powers" (such as breathing fire, or firing arrows made of hair--hairrows? :troll:) other than his rapid regeneration in the manga. They were probably grasping at any straws they could to level out his move set. They should have just left him a purely physical fighter. On a second watch, he does seem incredibly slow.

Outside of potential multi-player (which I have never played), you are assigned one particular faction to play as while completing whichever mission the game assigns for you.

You can only choose one character to play as per session while your allies are either scripted (usually story mode) or random (extra modes)

You will unlock different characters to play as either from completing the main story, unlocking extra modes, or completing other requirements for a few "secret" characters.  One of these may be getting a gold/platinum ranking on every story mode stage, for example.

If a character is an enemy NPC boss/enemy, there's a good chance it can be playable.

However some characters could also merely end up as "support" characters, meaning they will just appear and attack once then disappear after a separate gauge fills in the game.  I don't think it's been confirmed or denies as to whether this game will have support characters though.

This is also the first time I've seen Zodd with black fur like Miura's more recent artwork as well, which I appreciate.

Overall it is a shame Zodd's been slowed down. But I imagine the developers want to cover the broadest range of attack styles they can. And a big, slow tank character fit Zodd more than anybody else. Personally I would have gone with Grunbeld to fill that niche, but they'd be fools to include him in lieu of the much more recognisable Zodd.

On an unrelated note, i'm enjoying the voice acting so far. I mean, we only get like 2 lines a video. But they're doing a really good job channelling each of the characters.

I think it's pretty poorly done all in all. The transformation sucks, Guts moves around TOO fast, removing any sense of "weight", and yeah, of course, it's ridiculous that he'd go hit enemies barehanded.

That never made any sense though. Guts doesn't howl like a wolf when he transforms. As a matter of fact, the Beast of Darkness isn't a wolf.

I guess they were just using the wolf sound as metaphor for Guts' wild nature when he goes berserk.

Is the correct term for the Beast of Darkness a hound rather than wolf? Or is it just defined as a wild beast.

The Beast of Darkness is an allegory to begin with. It represents Guts' dark feelings (anger, guilt, fear, sorrow, etc.) that are the result of the psychological trauma he received during the Eclipse. It is not a wolf, not a hound (it looks nothing like either of these), nor any other kind of real animal. That is why its name is the "Beast of Darkness", because it's a fictional, nonexistent "beast", even within Berserk's world.

Wow that transition cutscene is 'blink and you miss it'. I would have liked a bit more attention and love put into the metal plates sliding out of armour and locking around Guts face.

I can imagine that this will be seen in a cutscene during Guts' first transformation. But would you really want to see this animation every time you go into beast mode during gameplay?

I understood for a while that it's all psychological and the Beast isn't anything physical. I've just heard so many people call the Beast of Darkness a wolf or hound I started to say it myself.

Thanks Aaz for the explanation & correction.

No problem. Unfortunately people tend to be sloppy and take shortcuts, and over time things slowly degrade until one day the "Skull Knight" becomes the "Undead Cavalier". The best way to avoid such mistakes is usually to stick to the manga and to official translations, even if 30 people say otherwise. It's a bit like the scientific method in a way: always stick to facts backed by evidence. And here, all the evidence is in the volumes. :guts:

Zodd is sluggish in movement, but his apostle form looks very fun. It appears that the characters have a set of unique cooldown attacks, eg Guts cannon and Zodd stomp.

I played the older DWs (2-5) when I was younger w/ my bro on Co-op, fun times. The games are legit challenging on the "extreme" difficulties where bosses can easily 2-shot you and grunts are actually scary. This difficulty was also a requirement in order to acquire the final weapons and the rarest of equipment. It's been like that for all of the games I've played (not sure about DW6+s), and I hope something to that effect is in Berserk Musou. Default difficulty is mindless and can get old fast.

From what I understand most Dynasty Warriors games act similar to this with the A.I. I've only personally played the Zelda Warriors game and it seems like this is also a thing, not quite as bad though.

As for the game itself, it looks like it's shaping up to be pretty fun, I don't have any high expectations for it other then to just mess around and use my favorite characters to defeat large groups of enemies. I'm curious about the boss fights with some of the apostles, the screen shots look decent.

I also don't have any expectations, but was curious as it looks far too simple.  A new Berserk game will be picked up and played by me regardless.  I may need to adjust what I perceive about it a little.  I would assume a little bit of a challenge, but if the ai is lax, I'll just crank the difficulty and hope the bosses are a pain.

The TGS trailer certainly didn´t care to be "sensitives", so i can´t wait for the inevitable games are misogynistic discussions, but the 3rd film also manage to glorify rape. Sigh.
Which brings me to my question: What were the trilogy clips and the 2 hours worth of cutscene remark about? The newly rendered scene with Charlotte at the window has a movie "counterpart", so i hope for new cut-scenes and not cheap movie clips. (The game preview from the magazines also had movie stills.)

@Salem Musou enemies have no noteworthy AI by default. I suggest to play a related demo beforehand, to set realistic expectations.
Title: Re: Berserk Musou (PS3, PS4, PC)
Post by: Roderick on September 16, 2016, 07:25:17 PM
I am also worried about the cutscenes.  I was hoping for newly rendered material like their previous titles, but if they're just going to port over anime footage, I won't be happy.  I'm sure that the game-start cinematic will be CGI, but story mode may be another story.

Standard mobs tend to have low AI in these games, with the bosses being the only potential challenge and other higher tier enemies.  As such, they tend to overwhelm by sheer force of numbers as you occasionally leave your guard open, like during a pause between attacks or if one enemy does a cheap shot long range attack just off the camera.

If you want challenge, set up the difficulty higher.  Won't fix the AI much, but the damage you take if you are hit is much larger, forcing you to be somewhat more defensive
Title: Re: Berserk Musou (PS3, PS4, PC)
Post by: Delta Phi on September 16, 2016, 07:54:34 PM
Musou games (at least Dynasty Warrior) have never had big CGI cutscenes other than the opening cinematic right before you get to the main menus. All cutscenes in game are done with in-game models. I expect it to be the same here. The way they are using the trilogy footage makes me think they may substitute some in instead of having to render their own cutscenes. Not only is this just a bad idea, but there will be quite a bit of disconnect between the Golden Age, Conviction, and Millennium Falcon/Black Swordsman since all have different animation approaches or none at all.

And Salem, definitely check out a demo if you can. On the lower difficulty settings you can just stand around without taking damage. Out of the 15 enemies surrounding you, one or two will attack every 15 seconds or so. The only real difficult part of Musou games is making sure your NPCs don't die, or completing objectives within certain time limits. When/if the combat is difficult, its because your enemy has gargantuan amounts of health and can kill you in 3 or 4 hits (looking at you Lu Bu).

Thanks.  That actually sounds alright if getting the combat down to a fine precision is ultimately where the challange comes from.  Watching the videos, it's hard to gauge anything like that.

Again with the down voting.  This is as bad as high school.

Yeah, in game mostly.  FMV style is usually pretty rare, limited to the game-start and maybe one or two key moments in story mode including the ending.  Otherwise they use in-game graphic models, which is fine by me.  Just don't want long clips from the anime(s).

Interesting interview from GameSpot, also confirms what I think a lot of people were already guessing in that adapting to "the end of the Millennium Falcon Arc" actually means that they are adapting up to the beginning of volume 32. So I'm guessing Guts and Zodd's fight against Ganishka will likely be the final stage/boss fight.

It's a shame they won't be including one of the most spectacular fights, the Neo band of the Falcon vs Ganishka's spawn in the shadow of his reincarnated form. That would be seriously incredible. Especially if you could just play some random peon trying to survive amidst apostles and monsters. Though that's diverging very far from a standard Musou experience. Sea God tentacles would also make a nice, simple horde army for a mission. Regardless, 32 volumes of material is insane and I can hardly complain there's gonna be a shortage of material.

All in all, that seems to make the most sense. That battle incorporates most of the main characters. I can imagine the game ending the same way episode 278 did and it probably will.

Idk why those timestamps were off for me. Casca gameplay started at 6:58:00 for me.

This game's so littttttttt. I'm so hyped man, the difference for it being 8/10 hype to 10/10 hype is obviously the characters they introduce, the more broken apostles they make playable the better obviously. From what I can tell, the combat resembles that of one piece warriors 3, which is the best koei tecmo combat IMO thus far. I know I'm a totally biased musou nerd, but I hope people can appreciate why I like the genre when they play this game.

It's not about difficulty, but the feeling of progression you make over time and the adrenaline rush you get when you're stomping through ppl that you were originally taking forever to take down, the different play styles that each character offer, and pushing them to their limits even if you know they're on the weaker tier of the cast (looking at you Judeau). I've started to hold off on playing as the obvious God-like characters in these games because once you do, it's kinda hard to go back to playing the weaker characters, but idk how much I could hold off on playing as Zodd and inevitably Skull Knight ugh, can't wait!

Playing them is a lot more fun than watching for sure, but if this has the same gameplay mechanics as one piece warriors 3 you'll be able to start an attack string > dash > continue the attack string, vs start the attack string > dash > start all over from the first square attack. This is a big deal as it makes the combat run a lot smoother. I also THINK you'll be able to cancel attack animations with R1 or the crossbow/cannon attacks etc.

Usually in one piece warriors, R1 was meant to be pressed after the last hit of an attack string so that you would cancel the lag animation (even tho some would look pretty cool). You would also dash after an R1 attack to close the gap between you and the enemies. Newer players won't know how implement these things so it's understandable if all they're doing is spamming square.

So for example: square, square, triangle (lag) vs square, square, triangle-R1 (shoots arrows) > dash > square square etc.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm definitely going to spend a few missions doing exactly that.


Well if they're going to let us play Femto himself, Lore-destruction is not a concern and there's really no limits to who they're going to pull out as well now. Those old posts about playing Void aren't that unlikely any more.

For some reason Femto doesn't bother me nearly as much as just the idea of Void being playable. Some things are just too sacred, I guess  :femto: The God Hand really should just be left out of this. Griffith should have just not had a transformation (I assume this is what this is).

Yeah, it's definitely his transformation. It seems like every character is going to get one, though some make more sense than others. With Guts and the apostles, it's simple. And I'd guess Serpico's will be him unleashing Sylph's Sword, and Schierke will probably be possessed by the Lady of the Depths or a similar elemental spirit, but I have no idea what they'll do for Casca and Judo.

That along with Guts in his Berserk Armor mowing through apostles with the Dragon Slayer... I had the same thought, but it's a tutorial section, so it's probably a dream sequence or something. That's the only thing that makes sense to me, anyway.

Because i think that was not the story mode. They said before they will add a mode called "the Eclipse" mode. So that why. I dont think they will add long haired Casca all of sudden in the story since the  Eclipse since the first trailer we got they showed us shorted hair Casca in the Eclipse moment.

I've never played any of their other games. Can someone tell me if modding on the PC version is possible? I feel like a few good mods could really help this game out, at least perhaps in terms of the combat system.

Post by: DanelMotel on September 21, 2016, 05:17:45 AM
That's it, this was the reveal that made my hype go from 8/10 to officially 10/10, Femto...wow, they really went there. Offically hhhhhhyyyyyyyppppppeeeeeeeddddddddddddddddddddddddddd!

And not all characters have an actual "transformation" with different movesets. If they don't have an actual physical transformation, as we saw with the recent Guts gameplay, attacks will just be slightly altered by speed or some extra effects, but nothing as crazy as Griffith > Femto.

This confirms that the Skull Knight will be playable, guaranteed. I just wonder if they're going him horseback riding 100% of the time (which they should), and if they do, it can get sloppy because horseback riding on Dynasty Warrior games can feel wonky as hell. This would definitely make one of the coolest characters in the series play pretty bad, hopefully they'll figure it out.

If I were a betting man, I'd say that Femto isn't invincible, just for game's mechanics and balance sake. However, it would be pretty cool if he was invulnerable during his transformation, that'd be pretty broken tho...

I'm curious, would you guys have preferred Femto being in the game? Obviously, this game isn't going to be following the source material super closely lmao, but I actually prefer it this way. I want them to make as many characters playable as possible, even if it doesn't even make sense. I really like Femto's inclusion because you know he's going to be top tier and you're literally going to feel like a God after you've leveled Griffith up a bunch, to the point that you can stay in Femto form for a long time. I really hope they make his moveset memorable.

I can't wait to see Aazealh's reaction to this lmao! I'm betting on, total disgust, with a mix of "oh sure why not", if you're not going to follow the source material this closely, might as well go all out.

ps. HYPE!

A new update from The Official Game Site.

If I understood correctly, a "new" system mode is available... something like "The Eclipse Mode" (which reminds me of those "God of War Challenges).


According to it, it seems to be possible to team up with your best "ally" (or enemy) in order to slay thousands of enemies.

(So, does it confirm Isidro and Skull Knight as playable characters?)

Man....  :zodd: +  :SK: will be the best team.

Plenty of fun for Berserk fans!!!

(https://www.gamecity.ne.jp/berserk-musou/images/system/action4_7.jpg)

Based on these screenshots, I believe that Griffith's "transformation" will be like ultra fast, maybe just for a few seconds, considering there is no battle (no battle at all). Summoning Femto will be a fresh another (new) way to define the term "instantaneous annihilation".

I hope the stages have an infinite amount of time, but the enemies become exponentially harder as your kill count increases and your rewards are of higher quality until you end up dying.

I also read somewhere that the international version will have differences. I expect the inclusion of actual gore, as even a Cero Z rating (the game is a D) would make that nearly impossible. A D rating also rules out any proper nudity and the current promo material confirm the absence of both. (The Japanese ratings board got infamously strict around the new millennium.)

This is extremely disappointing. I mean, I like that Wyald is in, but why him over *any* of Griffith's lieutenants, or Skull Knight? Not to mention we can see other characters in-game, like Farnese and SK. That's a real shame (and I find it hard to believe, but whatever). At least I got Serpico, I guess.

Isn't a flea/higher pitched sounding voice usually associated with sadistic/insane characters? Regardless of size and muscle that does seem to be the go to voice in Japan when concerning these types. That being said it does feel like the voice should be deeper but what is there already is not terrible.

It looks like they're using scenes from the Berserk films at the end of levels to transition the player to different parts of the story.

I don't think Aaz was saying there will ONLY be animated cutscenes. But using those scenes cuts down on the number they have to produce themselves.

When I first heard the Beast of Darkness a while back in an earlier trailer, he sounded like a 30 year old man making a very amateur "ROAR" sound.

This is way more promising.

@ 1:33, looks like we get to see an animated version of Zodd splitting Wyald in half. Plus Ganishka looks to be confirmed in the game, since we see Guts on top of Zodd :ubik:

This game is turning out to be the Berserk game I've always wanted.

Well, it's different. I wouldn't call it "way  better." He just sounds like a generic monster now. In the 2016 anime, at least they had Guts' voice actor doing it, which made sense.

They're really reaching trying to make canon scantily clad Casca costumes, just bite the bullet and make Slan or Rosine playable if they care about nudity so much. I like the Schierke golem costume , but they're outright teasing us with that beast horse :badbone:. They will probably make Skull Knight a DLC character.

And the other one is Keiji's horse from Samurai Warriors

The third one and the only original one is Berserker horse.

That's something I'm still curious about, has it been confirmed yet that the game will not have more than the 8 playable characters announced so far? (i.e. Guts, Griffith/Femto, Casca, Judeau, Wyald, Nosferatu Zodd, Schierke, and Serpico) Because it definitely seems odd that characters as important/popular as the Skull Knight wouldn't get playable character status while less well known characters like Wyald do.

I believe they confirmed all the playable character so sk wont be playable. they cut characters on purpose, you're gonna have to wait for berserk musou 2. we might get some characters as dlc but usually the 2nd game has all that extra stuff

Yes they usually have more playable characters, however, they're notorious for having weak first games. Look at the rosters for anything but they're usual dynasty or samurai warrior games and the roster and the actual game isn't that impressive. For example, One piece warriors 1 was awful, they took a HUGE step in the right direction with the second iteration, with both gameplay and character roster.

At least Berserk seems like it has the gameplay, definitely not the roster. You can also tell they took shortcuts in the movesets and animations (serpico tornado and femto tornado). With all that being said, we all know most of the SK forum will get the game because it caters towards this audience, but hopefully it will do good enough to justify a second part which Koei would hopefully take a big step in the right direction, meaning expanded roster, different animations, and movesets.

I disagree, the fights in the North Star musou games especially the 2nd game were really good for musou standards. The 2nd game followed the manga quite well, they even made the cutscenes into manga panels with nice transitions. The South Star and North Star styles were done very well, the bosses in those games usually have 3 phases, every time a 1/3 of the health goes down the fighter changes combos and at the end there is a nice execution followed by a manga cutscene. For musou standards, i think they did a really good with the Hokuto fights.

I also enjoyed the two Hokuto no Ken games, I thought they were better then the average musou, and I had more fun then the few Dynasty Warriors games I did play. I think for polish, Zelda: Warriors is still high up there but it does have the financial backing of Nintendo. I think my favorite outfit so far is Schierke's golem one, it's very cute! Not a fan of Casca's wardrobe so far.

No, but Snake Baron itself is a name that fans generated for that character. He's not a baron, he's just an apostle who led a group of bandits, and held a town hostage. In the guidebook and other publications, he's the "Cobra Apostle."

Yeah, to help himself line his stomach. The mayor was the ruler of the town. The apostle just waltzed in and as you say, established himself a base of operations there. The Count was a true ruler who also turned into an apostle. That doesn't seem to be the case with the "Cobra Apostle."

He wasn't a noble appointed by the king before becoming an apostle, that's for sure. He probably came around while leading a band of marauders and conquered Koka castle, after which he took over dominion of the surrounding lands. But he's still ruling over them in a castle and dressing up all fancy. The mayor administers the town, but he reports to the apostle and submits to him both in speech and in attitude. The word he calls him by, "首領" (leader), is actually how people refer to Kim-Jong Un in North Korea. So I agree that "Cobra apostle" (or even simply "Snake apostle") are appropriate denominations, but he was objectively ruling those lands.

Fight with Grunbeld looks great. Horse riding is ridiculous, so is killing hundreds of enemies. Some scenes are decent, like Skull Knight with his Beherit Sword, but in some scenes there are changes in appereance of characters, for example when Guts was about to leave Falcons, they were just looking different in manga, Griffith has armor in game, not like in manga. I'm still positive, because we will have some new scenes like Falcon-Zodd confrontation.

Musou's character models look great but the cutscenes that weren't pre-rendered are rather janky and awkward. I had to laugh at how they handled Ganishka's proclamation of war; the crew standing around in a courtyard asking Farnese to come back and he just pops up from behind some buildings all like, "Surprise, motherfuckers!"  :ganishka:

Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of this style of game, and though, as Walter points out, the boss fights resemble Dark Souls, I'm betting they don't play like it and I'd have really preferred that style for the game overall (considering the comparisons between the two how cool would a Dark Souls knockoff have been for a Berserk game). Anyway, I'm still curious to see how it's received, it could be fun to drop into these iconic fights and the style of gameplay at least fits the larger battles and campaigns from the series (but that's only a few, at least from Guts POV, after the Golden Age).

When a trend begins, most of people follow like sheeps, regardless of how dumb the thing is, just like the "boat", instead of Sea Horse.

Anyway, i'm happy this game is coming for PC too. I would have preferred a Berserk game with its own mechanics instead of a Musou, as Aaz said in the end this is just like the previous Musou games but with Berserk skin. But oh well, it's still Berserk.

This is not exactly Berserk skin thing, it does have different in terms of gameplay such as items and each character have their own items. I don't think this happened before for a Musou game. Unless in Fist of the North Star had it.

The combat of Guts is pretty good, if it only has counters like PS2.


The PS2 gameplay (to me) was a bit boring, but the boss fight was great.
The reason why PS2 gameplay was a bit boring is because the enemies follow you wherever you go and there is no end to them, and you only mash square over and over again. Triangle with fnisher or charge attack

Using Casca's rape in promotion of the game, making post-rape Casca into a sexy pre-order bonus, and DLC to use the horse that tried to murder-rape Farnese are all very tasteless. Feels like decisions from people that don't have much reverence for the source material.

Post by: Ressha on November 10, 2016, 12:55:22 AM
Been playing a good amount of this, I imported and don't know Japanese at all really, but as far as I can tell it is fairly true to the manga, even moreso than any anime adaptation, PS2 game still has it beat imo(that one is a real love letter :ubik: )

It plays exactly like you would expect it to, those of you familiar with Dynasty Warrior series or *insert franchise here* Warriors should feel right at home. I have only played as Guts, Serpico, and Wyald so far and they are all incredibly fun to play. Their movesets are a lot more true to manga panels than the trailers would have you think(that's another thing, none of the promotional material for this game does it justice)

Guts especially moves exactly how he is depicted moving in the earlier chapters where he's portrayed as Black Swordsman, sweeping his legs around slamming the Dragonslayer down with great force. If you analyze frame by frame you really can appreciate how much detail they put into his leg movements while fighting.
Only real downside are the boss fights, trailers make it look like Dark Souls but it is slightly more mindless than that, a lot like Warriors series only you're fighting giant monsters. Sometimes the camera can get stuck on things(this especially happened during the Thief Lord / Snake Baron fight)
One on One fights with say griffith or the leader of the purple rhino knights, or smaller fights with kushan are a lot more fun.

Might be spoilers here, so be weary:
Game starts with the first couple fights where a young merc Guts finds the band, Bazuso fight is a real fun time but things don't really pick up until you become black swordsman. You get a weird dream sequence(?) at the start where you're BS Guts in the eclipse, it's somewhat odd and nowhere near as difficult as the real thing. Guts also wears a feather when he's Raider captain, which I don't believe was present in the manga. He loses it as soon as you fight Griffith. Femto fight is a real drag and you only have to land a couple special attacks on him to "win"
The first few fights after the Eclipse are a real treat, one when Skull Knight lets you fight spirits with his sword, and another where you're in a flashback as young Guts. Sadly the apostle fight at Godo's didn't make it in, I was really hoping to see Guts grab that Dragonslayer and use it for the first time.  You get a real feel for the story, there were very few points where I felt lost even though my understanding of Japanese begins and ends with "sumimasen" and that speaks volumes about how true it is to the manga. Another thing that bothered me was the fact that you got two horses during the Farnese escape sequence, it was as if they were too lazy to model or script a custom horse with her on it just for that sequence.  I will update as I play more, I am just getting to the Conviction arc and so far everything is just as I imagined.

The cutscenes weren't anything special either, and they butchered the story for the sake of streamlining the game. Again, they were competent, and made for a decent game, but they didn't stand out for their quality at the time. As for the music, Sign is great, but other than that? Meh.

I watched a fair bit of the game last week and it´s about what i expected, but you could see that it is a cut bove some of the Musou spin-offs. Gameplay and presentation wise.
A strong focus the GA, filler battles (!), not enough characters, the (expected) hardcore censorship and a ridiculous focus on Guts are the noticeable flaws.
The game could use more involved cutscenes too (Pirate Warriors 3 has a very impressive presentation for example) but the ones features are very well done. They made me feel real emotions and stuff...
The voice acting is also heads above the last anime projects, as the carried over VAs received proper direction, and the impressive soundtrack is what i liked the most. Well done audio team!

I will skip this version due to the lack of variety but will definitely get a re-release or sequel. The way Fist of the North Star 2 and One Piece 3 were done should serve as the blueprint. It took FotNS 2 years to go "Shin Musou" and i hope that it will be a "real" PS4 game too and not an "up-res".
This is lastly the best and most faithful adaption since 2004. So let´s keep pursuing the games rout.

The Vita outsold and outlived the WiiU (both are good consoles). The port looks very well done too. I would have fully bough this 1st game if the Vita version got a boxed release (i resell all my games after finishing them) and i now consider getting the Vita version of Pirate Warriors 3, as the demo of Hyrule Warriors 3DS proved to be the technical mess the reviewers said. Grinding has a certain appeal while watching tv or sitting in train after all.

Learning that Berserk Musou has (sensible) PS4 Pro support also suggest to me that this hardware upgrade will succeed. If what boils down to a PS3 port, based on a "random license" no less, can properly utilize it, then anyone else can too.

I was actually just thinking that. I haven't owned a non-Nintendo handheld...ever. And I have never felt like I was missing out on any of them to be honest.
I do recall wanting a PSP when they first came out, but I was 11 at the time and just wanted to be edgy...despite wanting it, I don't regret never owning one.  :slan:

A strong focus the GA, filler battles (!), not enough characters, the (expected) hardcore censorship and a ridiculous focus on Guts are the noticeable flaws.

A Berserk game that focuses on Guts? Outrageous! :schierke:

So. Spent a fair amount of time with the game, and mostly played as Guts. Gotta say, the Berserk armor is incredibly fun to play as. Guts feels like a powerhouse, but his swings are easy to interrupt, so he is susceptible to damage from high level enemies. However, when you transform, oh man, it captures the power of the armor so well. The move set is very limited, but you can cut through previously challenging areas like butter.

Here is a bit of footage I captured a week or so ago.

As powerful as Guts feels, from what I've played, Serpico and Schierke might be even more broken. :beast:

Sorry for the late response!

If you go to "Free Mode" you can choose any character, with any unlocked costume. It's quite fun rolling through some encounters with different encounters. As for Femto, you can get him for Griffith as a hidden feature by finishing the "Eclipse" challenge with Griffith. You will unlock the Millennium Falcon Griffith costume. Hit L2+R2 when you have a full Special gauge and you are in berserk/frenzy mode. This will unlock Femto for the duration of your berserk/frenzy gauge.

To be Femto permanently, I think you need to complete all the missions by doing 100 floors of the "Eclipse" challenge on every character.

This is a big time investment, and some characters (cough :???: cough) aren't especially easy to do it with. I took a break from the game, but currently trying to unlock Femto.  :femto:

Don't suppose there's a way to pre order it for PC yet at all to get those skins? (I'll be checking on Steam religiously but I don't want to miss out on that Pirate Schierke. It's so bad, I need it.)
I don't have a PS4, and as much as I love Berserk I don't want to spend an extra $400 just to play it. I might as well put that money towards a new Berserk statue....

It would be surprising for them not to sell you those extra costumes on Steam. If you want to see some precedent, scope out the Dynasty Warriors 8 listing (http://store.steampowered.com/app/278080/). It offers three DLC costume packs for between $3-8.

Only a few weeks away here in NA, I'm pretty stoked! Though I still can't bring myself to do a pre-order. Hopefully PSstore just lets you buy such add-on content as micro-transactions down the line or something.

I never played a Dynasty Warriors game. My cousin says he really enjoyed the ones he played on the PlayStation 2. I been intentionally avoiding video's and reviews of the game, for better or worst I want to discover everything through the game itself. Much like when I bought Guts Rage for the Dreamcast, which indirectly introduced me to the series. Other than a screen shot, it was virtually a blind buy. I still love Guts Rage, it has a lot of flaws, but it's one of my many Dreamcast highlights. I hope the one on PS4 blows me away!

I know this isn't a "deals" thread, but bestbuy.com has their $25 off $100 + free shipping deal if you use Visa Checkout (which is just a simple way to pay with your visa card).  Plus if you have a Gamers Club subscription with Best Buy (I just picked one up because of all the Nintendo Switch games/console/accessories I'm buying), you can save 20% off the Berserk game too.

sorry if its been asked already folks,

Have they scrapped the vita version coming out in the west? I could of sworn I saw it on amazon.com (I was going to import it to the UK as i knew the UK wasn't getting a physical copy) a couple of months ago, I went to pre-order it and it wasn't there. Theres nothing on the PSN store catalogue either which has me concerned.

My PS4 pre-order is still live so I'm hoping it will be released on schedule

Update: So I just finished playing it for about 2 hours.  I didn't keep up with all the previews/reviews about the game, so this was a pretty new, going-in-blind experience for me.  Wasn't sure quite to expect.  But my initial impressions are generally favorable!  In a nutshell:

- I liked this game more than Hyrule Warriors, by a long shot.  Reason is, the game had an actual story.  And I'll use spoiler tags in case people are sensitive to this. The game starts off at the eclipse (which is strange), and Guts has his Berserker Armor already, but this scene/level is really more like the tutorial part.  After which, it starts where the anime trilogy started.  A castle siege and then eventually Bazuso.  After which, the encounter with the Band, Carcus, Casca, Griffith and so forth.  The story elements as well as the cut scenes really flowed well!  The cut scenes fit right in with this game.
- The musou genre totally fits with Berserk!  I mean that might be a Captain Obvious statement, but really there are SO MANY enemies on screen at once, sometimes you even lose track of where your character is.  This is actually a really cool thing.  You get that sense of being overwhelmed and surrounded.  And man oh man, as the game goes on you learn more special moves, and MY GOODNESS some of them are so vicious.  I found myself reallllly enjoying these attacks.  They were so satisfying to pull off.  It was pretty awesome!
- This is probably common knowledge, but they reused scenes from the anime trilogy in the game and what's kinda cool about it is that they've replaced the original movie soundtrack with their own soundtrack, and seriously some of the new music pieces are better than the movie pieces.  Sometimes in the trilogy, the music was too overbearing or in your face.  The game soundtrack is much more subtle and I feel like fits the mood more accurately.  I am pleasantly surprised.
- The graphics are quite impressive as well!  I mean, Guts and co look pretty damn good, imho.  And the in-game graphic cut scenes + voice acting does a decent job.  I was genuinely getting enveloped in the game.
- Finally, the last thing I will say is overall the game didn't feel stale after 2 hours of play.  I think this game is legit fun, and keep in mind, I've never been a Dynasty Warriors fan prior to this.  I got Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U but I played it twice and never picked it up again.  Berserk though... it's really working for me!  So hopefully more people will get it and enjoy it along side me!

I also played about two hours of the main story. I only have three major issues. 1, I also got the Vita port and I'm not super impressed by the graphics. 2, no multiplayer. 3, this one is huge for me. The music! it’s not bad but with such amazing scores to pull from I feel like they missed the mark. I know there is lots off issues with getting licensed tracks but if they can put in the ridiculous  sword clank sound from the 2016 anime why can’t a dude get some "HAAAAAIIIII YYYYAAAAIIIIIII For cessssss!" like come on! Besides that I love it! Swinging the DS it's everything I ever thought it could be! I'm having so much fun.

Post by: residentgrigo on February 22, 2017, 01:57:44 PM
The game got a 16+ over here in Germany (as did the films) and there is no changed content when compared to the Japanese version. Which brings me to my question:
Koei Tecmo once directly promised to up the gore for the Western version of their Fist of the North Star games (rated 18+ over here). Specifically the inclusion of the iconic head explosions.
None of that came to pass and i hated the 1st FotNS game when a friend lend me his copy. Berserk got a similar empty promise. Are the publisher´s Ninja Gaiden games the only example of more violence in Western versions from them and if so why? Keeping sexual elements out of a Koei Tecmo game is good idea but Berserk with no gore ain´t Berserk. Both Australia´s and Germany´s ratings boards now allow uncut Dead Rising, Mortal Kombat and so on. No other major gaming market opposes gore outside of Japan either, which started to crack down on ultra-violent media following the Kobe child murders in 97. I am pretty sure that manga (or even anime) accurate violence would help the game sales, not the other way around.       
 
PS: I recently got One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 for the Vita and put 25-30 hours in the game. The Musou formula fits very well there and the production values were pretty decent too. Get that one, or the 2nd version of the Zelda / Dragon Quest re-skins if you want to see the developer´s best media adaptations.

I've only played the game for about an hour, because I can only stomach playing in 10-15 minute bursts. It is just so goddamned monotonous. I expected some mindless fun, but this game only delivers on half of that promise.  The counterpoint to everything I'm about to say is: "Well, that's just Musou, Walter." That does not excuse the sloppy mess of this game.

It's clear that not much thought went into making it fun or dynamic to play. Combat scenarios vary, but you can usually count on there being between 100-500 grunts standing like meat puppets in your way of a goal. Go ahead and stop to inspect them, they won't bother attacking you. So you can either choose to mindlessly slaughter them (for no apparent reward), or just run literally through the whole mess of them to get to the goal --  usually an enemy with slightly more health than the average grunt. During these dramatic battles, the grunts will sit off to the side, waiting patiently to be mutilated by collateral damage.

(http://www.skullknight.net/images/musou-attacks.jpg)

Tip: You can execute a combo attack by hitting x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x.

Combat so far consists of the X button, but if you're feeling particularly saucy you can pepper in some Y button too — maybe even go all the way and HOLD the Y button. Regardless of your tactical decision on the battlefield, the result is about as fun as playing a game with cheat codes enabled, against enemies who we can't be certain know that you're even there.

I'll try and play through more of it, because I'm interested in how the other characters play. But I'm loathe to invest dozens of hours just to play who I want to, so I might ACTUALLY end up using CheatEngine to enable them. Wouldn't that be ironic?

Nailed it. I really can't understand how this series has a following. The idea you're in God mode and the enemies don't know you're there.   :ganishka:  totally on point.  I'd really appreciate quality in our Berserk mediums.  We're definitely not given quantity.

How satisfying would you say the actual combat is Walter? In terms of sound design and how weapons impact on enemies I mean. I have some experience with the Gundam DW games, and the combat in those felt like it had no weight to it at all. I'd probably get more satisfaction from bashing two toys together.

Something that put me off the game quite strongly was watching some gameplay of the level where Guts meets Casca and Griffith. It just didn't seem quite right to watch the guy who will eventually be renowned as the 'Hundred Man Slayer" dispatch over 400 Band of the Hawk soldiers (isn't that basically all of them at this point in the story?). Too much emphasis on big killing fields and very little depth to the combat (not that you'd need it against AI that basic).

Hahaha, this is very true.  When I played that part, and was hacking and slashing Casca, I kept saying under my breath "I can't...  NO THIS IS WRONG... I CAN'T!  DON'T MAKE ME DO THIS!!!" but I laughed and cringed and powered through, lol.

Well, I'm not exactly shocked by the result. I can't even say that I'm disappointed, since I knew what to expect. But it's still unfortunate. As always, Berserk deserves better.

Since I'm already not a fan of Musou games, and was disappointed with Hyrule Warriors, I went in with pretty low expectations.  So to my surprise, I found myself enjoying the 2 hours I've spent on it so far more than I thought I would.  But can't argue with you on your last point, Berserk always deserves better!  The Dreamcast game came close though.

The game got a 16+ over here in Germany (as did the films) and there is no changed content when compared to the Japanese version

Ah, I see.  I'm in the US, and mine had a Mature rating, and when I load up the game, it specifically asks if I want Gore on or off.  Naturally, I chose on!

I've played the prologue and 5 missions.  I hate to be the negative nancy, but if this wasn't Berserk there is no way on earth I'd touch this game.  I knew going in the formula looked generic, but wow.  There is no strategy at all.  On hard.  Button mash as a ton of ai stands around.  This is to video games as the 2016 anime was to Berserk imo.

I don't have much experience with Musou games, but aren't most Musou games button mash?  But I did find some strategy to it so far.  IE, square square triangle impales the enemy on the third strike, and then Guts does one giant strike down with the body impaled and annihilates everyone in the vicinity.  I personally found that button combo the best for now.  Plus the triangle dash triangle combo was very useful against bosses.  I mean, I didn't find the PS2 game any less or more deep as far as move sets are concerned.  And I think Musou games are more about trying to set records and complete missions in record time, mostly determined about who or where to target first, etc.

Anyways, I'll probably play it another hour or so tonight!

How satisfying would you say the actual combat is Walter? In terms of sound design and how weapons impact on enemies I mean. I have some experience with the Gundam DW games, and the combat in those felt like it had no weight to it at all. I'd probably get more satisfaction from bashing two toys together.

Well, it's very button-mashy. There is no weight to the combat movements. Your swings take a certain amount of time to execute, and you're locked into those animations until then. Sometimes your swings will be interrupted by an enemy general or whatever, but for the most part you're just mashing on X or Y until you don't need to anymore.  But you can get used to that. The biggest problem with the combat design is the terrible camera, which can't track where you're swinging for shit. This is exacerbated when you're on horseback and you can turn on a dime. The camera just doesn't know what the fuck to do.

Something that put me off the game quite strongly was watching some gameplay of the level where Guts meets Casca and Griffith. It just didn't seem quite right to watch the guy who will eventually be renowned as the 'Hundred Man Slayer" dispatch over 400 Band of the Hawk soldiers

Honestly, that's the least of the game's problems. As far as staying true to the story, it does better than I expected for a game where it's a matter of course that you'll be executing a campaign of genocide in every stage. That being said, there are some weird issues. Like after 3 years pass with the Falcons, Guts' character model changes dramatically (in accordance with his character design change in the manga). But no one else's does. Griffith, Casca, Rickert, Judeau, all look the exact same.

Oh yeah, and I did just rescue Bazuso from the Eclipse, aided by Skull Knight. So... there are a few liberties  :ganishka:

I've actually had the most fun with this throwaway mode you get access to between missions, where you can have these fanfictionalized conversations with the other Falcons. I thought it'd be embarassing, but then scenes like this happen and I have a hard time holding a grudge against it. It's just so silly and worthless that I kind of love it:

And who can forget that time that Rickert wanted to get drunk with Guts?

And my personal favorite so far: Guts teasing Corkus about his love life, and his hot mic response:

BTW, it's really weird to see Giant Bomb, a site I've been visiting for years, talk so much about Berserk: http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/quick-look-berserk-and-the-band-of-the-hawk/2300-11885/

On my commute home from work Friday, I spent some time chatting (to myself) about my first few hours with Berserk Musou.

This series has a following as the main entries (or the One Piece game i mentioned) play a bit differently from Berserk Musou. Jim Sterling goes into what makes the Berserk version inferior to ones he gave way higher scores to. That difference are the smaller and shorter maps. The element of area control is thus nearly gone and one of the key "strategic" elements of these games falls by the wayside.
That the game is so laser focused on Guts is the other universal negative, as even more variety falls by the wayside.

The redeeming feature i personally see is the endgame outside of the campaign, with the somewhat interesting Rogue-like mode. The way you power up in this game is way more uninteresting than in most Musou re-skins (and it is the best looking one too).  I wouldn´t be surprised if the game slightly grew on Walter in the end, but having a thoroughly mediocre campaign can´t be overlooked that easily.

There is no weight to the combat movements.

Having played the majority of the Warriors titles, I can confirm this issue to be present in most of (if not all) the games. I'm unsure as to whether it stems from a lack of fluidity when transitioning between character animations or something more abstruse, but there is a strange sense of weightlessness to player agency which I've come to view as an (unfortunate) staple of the series. Excluding Berserk and the Band of the Hawk/Berserk Musou, the last Warriors adaptation I played was Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom, in which the aforementioned issue actually complimented the game's design (in regard to how player movement was intended to 'feel'; the emphasis placed on aerial movement using the 'Omni-Directional Mobility Gear').

I was hoping Berserk Musou would avoid this pitfall, at least during scenarios where the player is controlling Guts, by emulating the sense of inertia conveyed through Guts' movements in Berserk: Millennium Falcon Hen Seima Senki no Shō. Alas, my hopes were dashed!  :judo:

Also, on the back of what you mentioned about enemy aggression (or lack thereof), Walter: I played a few levels on 'Normal' difficulty then cranked the difficulty up to 'Berserk' with the intention of replaying the levels I'd completed (starting with the first level), and I found that allowing myself to get flanked by relatively small groups of enemies that would otherwise act as fodder for the frenzy gauge resulted in me having my health shredded to nothing in a matter of seconds. This huge spike in enemy aggression between the three 'standard' difficulties and the one 'extreme' difficulty seems to be another staple of the series. Come to think of it, it's fairly typical of 'arcade style' games of this kind: the best example I can think of which illustrates this is 'Inferno' difficulty in the Earth Defense Force games.

This game is not bad if you play on hard or hell difficulty. It's just a musou after all


Anyway, this might be old and off topic. But i wish it becomes true.

That's what I've been hearing Walter. I haven't played it myself yet, but why is this? Is it just made crappy, or unfair?

Just did it yesterday and I agree. It's nearly impossible to touch him with everything he's throwing at you. You're happy once you get passed it...

It's a boss battle against Femto, so of course, the odds are going to be stacked against you. But I mean... coooome on. Given the ridiculous scenario they've concocted, it should have gone something like this: Oh, getting to Femto is virtually impossible? Fair enough, I'll just try and land a hit. Nope can't do that, oh shit, I'm about to die. **Forced game over state, Skull Knight intervenes, stage ends**. But no, no — they actually want you to break through his insane defenses and land three successive hits to end the stage. Why?  Musou!

When the level starts, there's a special effect: Your movements and attacks are slowed by about 2-3x when you're within range of these stupid Beherit stone piles, which you can smash to break free of the effect. The location of these changes throughout the stage, so most of the time you're walking around and attacking in slow-motion. Always a recipe for fun.

Hitting Femto is easy enough at first. Get up close and wail on him. Then he squats down and suddenly Guts is pulled into the ground (wtf), and you're respawned further away from him. Do this twice, and on round three things get real. The beherit stone pile things only spawn next to Femto now. And he'll begin constantly projecting spinning whirlwinds that surround him in a huge radius. Get hit by those, and you're sent flying away. Get back up and walk in slow-mo back to where you were. You can try to block the tornados and walk slowly toward Femto, but just one of them will break through your defense, leaving you prone, and then the second or third will hit you for sure.

So your only real strategy is to "dash" your way past the whirlwinds, which, you know, is pretty frustrating to do when you're slowed by the effect of the stone pile, which you can't get to because of the whirlwinds, which you can't get past because of the stone pile, which you can't get to because of the whirlwinds. Having fun yet? Even if you manage to get through an opening in the whirlwinds, his other special attacks (translucent bubbles slowly advancing toward you) force you to go prone, so then the whirlwinds will certainly get you.

It becomes a cycle of walking toward him slowly, getting blown away, trying again, getting blown away, trying again, getting a little further, forced prone, then getting blown away. The way I finally broke through was with one of Guts' stupid frenzy attacks, the kind you're never really sure of the range of. So basically, stabbing in the dark, missing, building up the meter again by, you know, "killing" hundreds of surrounding apostles (2 character models for these, btw), and trying over and over blindly until it hits.

This game fucking sucks.

Thought I'd chime in on this as I've finished the game (on Hard) and completed Endless Eclipse as Guts. It's my first Musou experience, so I went in fully aware what to expect - lots and lots of mindless button mashing. This is true for the entirety of the story mode, which sucks, because the game actually gets somewhat difficult during the later stages of Endless Eclipse (layers 80-100), where the mobs finally start to swarm the player and attack for considerable damage.

Golden Age has measly boss fights with only Zodd and Wyald being somewhat fun. Luckily I managed to beat story mode Femto in a single try. I didn't even bother trying to get through his clusterfuck of projectiles, so I just ran about until I could do a death blow, rinse, repeat. Being low on health fills the frenzy meter very quickly. Endless Eclipse Femto is a different beast altogether. He won't summon any screaming heads that slow you down but is instead constantly spawning multiple slowly moving orbs that won't disappear on they own and stun you for 2-3 seconds on impact, amongst his other shenanigans. Definitely the hardest boss in the game. Funnily enough his one crucial weakness is throwing bombs, with every attack guaranteeing a knockdown for easy hits.

Snake Baron has his ridiculous stunlock combos and frenzy invulnerability periods. The Count unfortunately is a joke, getting easily stunlocked by Guts' basic combos so you can defeat him with ease. Mozgus, although not the hardest, is definitely my favourite boss, mainly because the entire mission in Tower of Conviction is engaging, plus the music. Speaking of the soundtrack, it is really solid with quite a few gems, my favourites being the Black Swordsman theme, Tower of Conviction theme, Mozgus theme, Ganishka's theme and the credits music, all excellent tracks.

Next up was Zodd again, which is more of the same as before. The Ogre and Kelpie pair is frustrating, with Kelpie's water projectiles being really hard to keep track of because of the environment, all the while the Ogre keeps cornering you, blocking the vision. Slan was good but her unavoidable wing attacks are annoying, not to mention the pestering Ogres who keep throwing logs at you. Grunbeld loves to spam his shield cannon during the first part of the battle but we're not given much time to fight him in our usual getup. Berserker armor absolutely demolishes his human and apostle forms. The sheer carnage you can cause by triggering the armor really makes the final stretch of the game more fun. The final boss, Ganishka, is solid. You need to be aware of his constant lightning attacks around him and his big attacks have long windups, so it's not hard to avoid them.

Regarding equipment, I was a bit confused about the enhancement/amalgamation system at first, so I didn't bother with it for the better part of the story. It only becomes necessary during the final levels of Endless Eclipse and if you want to farm items later on. The game doesn't give you the ability to pick whichever skills you want to keep during amalgamation until way later, which is dumb.
Tried out a few missions in the downloadable scenario pack and it definitely has hard content if you aren't geared up. There's one called "Berserk Musou" where you are given 20 minutes to kill as many enemies as possible. Eventually the game throws a Ganishka and transformed Berserker Armor Guts duo at you during every other wave. Managed to rack up almost 5000 kills in that mission alone.

Apologies if this got rambly. What I'd emphasize here is that for me, the game gradually picked up after the Eclipse, the missions were better and I was more inclined to get through the story. I was really doubting if I'd even finish it in the beginning but I kept on going and found myself actually enjoying the game.

I'm stuck and would like people's advice here concerning buying Berserk Musou.
Do you think they will release part 2 like they did with Ken's Rage and in the process fleshing out more of the story and making more characters playable or will this might be the last iteration of the game for a while?

My buying advice: In no universe is this game worth the asking price of $60. If you are still interested in playing it, then I would recommend waiting for a sale.

Unlikely. They already barreled through 90% of the story in the first game.
