News Berserk Blasts Through 7 Minutes of Uncut English PS4 Gameplay
Trimming the hordes
Koei Tecmo's released seven minutes of English gameplay from upcoming hack and slasher Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. Showcasing a level in which Guts must protect a small town from hordes trolls and eventually a hulking ogre, this looks like it could end up being a PlayStation Store demo at some point. Berserk's out on...
News Berserk and the Band of the Hawk Gets Down and Dirty in Vita Gameplay
As is the case with most of Koei Tecmo's output these days, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk will be arriving on both PlayStation 4 and Vita here in the West when it launches early next year. But even though we've already been buried by loads of current-gen gameplay, we're yet to really see any handheld footage. Fortunately for...
News Berserk and the Band of the Hawk's Opening Movie Is Full of Blood and Guts
As you'd expect
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?...
News 7 Minutes of Berserk Gameplay Slices Up a Storm on PS4
Keep on carving
The Japanese PlayStation Blog has released around seven minutes of gameplay footage from Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, which launches in the Land of the Rising Sun later this month.

News Berserk and the Band of the Hawk Skewers Its Biggest PS4 Trailer Yet
Death and destruction
Showcasing every revealed playable character and a load of PlayStation 4 gameplay, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk's latest trailer is around four minutes long, and even features a brief look at some of the title's story cutscenes. The game's due out near the end of the month in Japan, so Koei Tecmo will likely be dishing out...
News That Scumbag Femto Stars in Latest Berserk PS4 Gameplay Trailer
Give him some space
Given that we've never really seen mega-demon Femto in action in the original work, we have to hand it to Berserk and the Band of the Hawk developer Omega Force for giving him what looks to be a very fitting fighting style. Taking control of space and gravity, Femto is able to toss entire groups of enemies around like they're...
News New Berserk PS4 Gameplay Focuses on a Very Bad Man
Ugh, not this guy
If you're familiar with Berserk, then you'll probably already know that Wyald, leader of the Black Dog Knights, is a bit of a villain. A demon in humanoid form, he's a ruthless and downright horrible individual who controls his band of fellow scum through fear. In the source material, we see Wyald do some unspeakable things -...
News It's Serpico's Turn in Latest Berserk Gameplay Trailer
Blowing a gale
We've doomed ourselves with these Berserk and the Band of the Hawk trailers, because we can't in good conscience stop covering them now that we've started - even if they're about thirty seconds in length. This latest one gives us our first proper look at Serpico, the cunning tactician of Guts' group, who uses a feathered blade that...
TGS 2016 Berserk and the Band of the Hawk Pushed to 2017 in the West
We still can't get over the name
Originally slated to launch this year in the West, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk - ugh! - has been pushed into 2017, publisher Koei Tecmo has confirmed. Given that the game was recently delayed in Japan - it was initially supposed to release next week - this Western delay comes as no real surprise, but we're a tad...
TGS 2016 Berserk Looks Spot On In First English PS4 Trailer
Its Western name is a mess, though
The good news: Berserk's new trailer makes the upcoming PlayStation 4 and Vita bloodbath seem very promising. The bad news: the game's called Berserk and the Band of the Hawk here in the West. Why the heck is there an 'and' in there? Surely Berserk: The Band of the Hawk is a better title? Absolute madness. Anyway,...
News Berserker Guts Kills It in Latest Berserk PS4 Trailer
Even without his berserker armour, Guts is a force to be reckoned with, but when its power consumes him, he becomes an unstoppable whirlwind of destruction. As expected, Guts will be able to utilise his berserker form in Koei Tecmo's upcoming hack and slasher, allowing him to leap into enemy territory and cut his foes to ribbons at...
News New Berserk PS4 Trailer Shows Why You Don't Mess with Nosferatu Zodd
He's a monster
Nosferatu Zodd lives for the thrill of battle, and that's pretty clear to see in Berserk's latest gameplay trailer. Indeed, Zodd's the star of this one as we see him make mincemeat out of his enemies in both his human and demon forms. It's still unclear how transformations actually work - we're unsure if they're just temporary or if...
News New Berserk PS4 Trailers See Casca and Judeau Bathe in Blood
The carnage continues
Berserk's back with not one, but two new gameplay trailers. The above video features Casca from her days as a commander of the Band of the Hawk, while the below clip shows jack of all trades Judeau laying waste to hordes of enemies with some impressive throwing knife skills.

News Griffith Is the Star of the Latest Berserk PS4 Gameplay Trailer
Guts won't be happy
The untouchable Griffith himself is in the spotlight for this newest Berserk gameplay trailer, and as you'd expect, he's a heck of a lot faster than Guts. But even with his more traditional style of swordplay, Griffith is still able to carve up dozens of enemies at once with his precise jabs and slashes. Could you stomach...
News New Berserk PS4 Gameplay Trailer Finally Gives a Glimpse of How it Plays
Coming out swinging
Well, we knew it was coming sooner or later. In what looks to be the first in a series of character specific gameplay trailers, Koei Tecmo has released around 50 seconds of footage from upcoming hack and slasher Berserk. Naturally, this initial video deals with protagonist Guts as both his younger self and when he's kitted out in...
News Bloody New PS4 Screenshots Show Character Transformations in Berserk
Transformations don't play as big a role in Berserk as they do in something like Dragon Ball Z, but they're still an important part of the story. Guts goes wild when his Berserker Armour takes over, for example, and demons like Nosferatu Zodd have a true form that allows them to exert their real strength. It's pretty cool, then, that Koei...
Feature 5 Things Berserk Needs to Get Right on PS4, Vita
Glory on the battlefield
Berserk is a superb manga series from Japanese artist Kentaro Miura. It's dark fantasy with a capital D, and it's more than deserving of a video game adaptation that does the original work justice. Fortunately, prolific publisher Koei Tecmo is on the case, and it's got Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force doing the heavy...

Enter Nosferatu Zodd
Now we're talking! Nosferatu Zodd, one of Berserk's central characters, is going to be playable in the PlayStation 4 and Vita adaptation. The supremely powerful demon, who can alternate between humanoid and beast forms, will surely be a blast to use in Koei Tecmo's upcoming hack and slasher. We imagine that it won't be long...

News Berserk Will Be Unleased on PS4, Vita Later This Year in the West
No Guts no glory
Okay, this should be the last Berserk story for today, much to the relief of anti-anime editor Sammy Barker. Hot on the heels of fresh PlayStation 4 screenshots - which you can peruse through here - Koei Tecmo has revealed that the upcoming hack and slasher will indeed be releasing this year here in the West - this autumn, to be...

News Koei Tecmo's Berserk Game Won't Get an 18+ Rating
Let's face it, Koei Tecmo isn't known for dabbling in overly violent or decidedly mature games, so it's no wonder that Berserk fans have been pondering the publisher's position on Berserk, the upcoming action title that's based on the manga and anime property. If you know Berserk, then you'll know that it's not for the faint of heart;...

No Guts no glory
Omega Force, the developer of Dynasty Warriors and other action titles, is busy crafting a game based on Berserk, the rather mature manga and anime franchise.
