Judging by how playable characters have been arranged in previous Musou games (Hyrule Warriors has 28 playable characters), how do you see Berserk's roster being filled out?

Aaz and I (mostly him) came up with the list above, along with a few jokes. But who else do you think is likely to be playable?

Vote for as many people as you'd like!

I would be a little surprised to see Anna, Adon, and Wyald make the cut, but Tapasa would be the one I'd love to play as...which I also don't see. The others wouldn't surprise me too much.  How about a Garuda riding Daiba?   :carcus:

Silat would definitely be a character who has a good chance of being in Berserk Musou, due to his varied move set consisting of twin daggers (Katars I think, not sure), Chakram's and his Urumi (Steel whip weapon). Characters based on crowd control are usually my favorites, Lu Bu is the perfect example.

I see Puck only has 2 votes. I just wanted to drop this in here then:



In other words, count on it  :guts:

Shit, I'd love to play as Wyald, in fact I want a game where you play as him exclusively.

Arslan has 12 playable characters, Dragon Quest (1) has 13, Fist of the North Star (1) has 9 + 1 as DLC, One Piece (1) has 13 playable characters, Zelda has 13 + DLC and i have no idea how to count the the 21 Gundam units, as about half are just swaps (i know my Gundam canon, trust me). Attack on Titan has 10 but is a different "genre", i guess.
These numbers all come from wikia, so there is your ceiling for licensed 1st entry Musou, without DLC. About a dozen. So keep expectations low, more than half should have been revealed by now.
No God Hand members to vote on, eh? A :ubik: on Conrad combo would be funny.
Here is "our" wikia: http://koei.wikia.com/wiki/Berserk_Musou It can only improve on the "other"...

I think including DLC in the total is logical. But yeah, good call on scaling it back, with Hyrule Warriors as the outlier. Could be as few as 10, all things considered, and 5 so far are confirmed: Guts, Casca, Griffith, Judo, Schierke.

So you're saying I shouldn't count on Anna?  :judo:

Senpai noticed me :farnese: . Duck Anna is the best! (Where is that emoticon?) The amount of "possible" stages ainīt looking too hot either... 
Well, Hyrule Warriors had half a budget, it should have reached 26 in the end, and i deliberatively used 1st entries.

 Guts, Griffith, Casca, Judeau, Pippin, Zodd, Skull Knight, Silat, Schierke, Serpico, Isidro, Irvine, Grunbeld and Locus.

Im not sure Puck is going to be playable. He's not a fighter and knows only like one move. He's probably going to be help based, probably blinding enemies and enabling you to stun/enter comboes when they're stunned. Im also not sure about Farnese since she's not much of a fighter and has only started learning magic.

I'd like to see Boscogn playable but I cannot see a scenario that would be plausible. Maybe an ulockable character for later for pure fun and badassery.

My favorite choice would probably be Silat. Guy has so many weapons and can fight in a lot of different ways and is bound to be super fun.

Since when has that stopped the Musou series? :carcus:

I think my unconfirmed "must haves" are Serpico, Isidro, Skull Knight, Grunbeld, Zodd, Irvine, Rakshas, Locus. If we got those along with the confirmed characters, I'd be completely happy. I really wonder how many Falcons they'll include. I honestly didn't expect to see Judo.

But I've got a sick feeling apostles might be saved for bosses only.

I want to play as an older Theresia. Possibly wearing Black Swordsman style armor. Possibly wielding a knife or sword in one hand and Guts' severed head in the other.

I'm wondering if they'd add an original character like they did in Hyrule Warriors.  It would be really weird, but I doubt that would stop them.
However what I think would be much more weird and much less likely would be being able to play as the Beast of Darkness itself.  Like I said, weird and unlikely, but I just love playing as non-human characters in games. 
Although, now that I think of it, there are plenty of other characters that qualify as "non-human" in Berserk.  But you get what I mean (I hope).

They might make Beast of Darkness a boss fight. Like going to Guts' mind and having to fight it to put it under control. If anything, they might wanna sell it as Guts' apostle form ( beast of darkness ) since its all about hack and slash really.

I haven't played one of these games since the first couple Dynasty Warriors came out so I'm not very wise to what is typical for the newer ones.  I did have an idea last night of something that would maybe be cool though.  I was thinking there could be a level where you play as child Guts and instead of just slashing through armies you were in a support role to Gambino.  Like you could hamstring or injure enemies around him that he would finish off or if he called for a spear or sword after his breaks you would have only a few seconds to get one to him or he would hit you.  You would be needing to avoid enemies and any damage Gambino would deal as punishment while actually killing an enemy would be very difficult for young Guts.

I don't know if there is anything like this in the newer DW style games but it seemed like a cool idea for something different.

That'd be really a gross move on their part though.

Sounds cool, but I doubt they'd implement something that specific unfortunately.

I would be totally up for it.  The question is, do you play as Guts fighting for control, or as Schierke freeing Guts after he uses the berserk armor?
