Berserk's Guts slicing through a horde of enemies

Berserk is a long-running manga series that has managed to successfully and skillfully deal with some of the darkest topics you can ever imagine. To top it all off, its artwork is incredibly visceral with absolutely no sugarcoating when it comes to portraying scenes of battle, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that Berserk is getting its own video game adaptation.

However, while a Dynasty Warriors styled Berserk game was announced last month by Koei Tecmo, they unfortunately didn't reveal anything about the most exciting part of both Berserk and the Warriors series in general - the absolutely ridiculous combat. Thankfully, the recently posted trailer has now corrected that mistake as it features Guts (the character, not the body part) slicing and dicing through entire legions of poor fools that decided to stand in his way. Have a look:


Berserk, which is currently the game's working title, is set to arrive in the West at some point this year for the PC, PS4, PS3 and Vita. The specific date hasn't been revealed just yet, so I'm going to go out on a limb and pin it for the holiday season, though I'm sure we'll get a proper announcement soon.

If you would like to learn more about Berserk and its lore, you can head over to the official website, though be careful about spoilers! They have quite unashamedly summarized some rather important and emotional plot points, so if you plan on reading Berserk at any point in the future its probably best you avoid it for now.
