Publisher Koei Tecmo has slapped Berserk and the Band of the Hawk's opening movie up on YouTube, and it's a pretty good watch. Clocking in at almost two minutes, we suppose that it's a decent little introduction to the world of Berserk and its dark fantasy tone. Plus, that bit where Guts chucks his sword straight into Zodd's face? Brutal.

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is out later this month in Japan, while it's due to launch in February of next year here in the West. Are you up for some bloody battle? Storm the comments section below.
