Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is currently being developed by Omega Force and we talked to Producer Hisashi Koinuma and Director Dai Kawai at the Tokyo Game Show about the game and the motivation behind creating a game in the Berserk universe.
"So in Japan the new anime series of Berserk has started," Koinuma said, "and when it was being developed the animation production committee actually approached us to see if we could work together to create a game, to be able to really promote and have fun with the Berserk I.D. This is a license, I.D., that has existed from many years back, so it's something that we're familiar with and something that we definitely had wanted to do, so this is the perfectly opportunity to do so."
"Berserk itself started from 27 years ago and so as a dark fantasy comic it's definitely been the key pillar of all the dark fantasy comics. So from that we do feel like it's probably influenced other animes, other mangas, comics as well, and so for us to be able to put it into moving format as a game is something we definitely have looked forward to doing, and as well we're able to draw from our other experiences to really make a great representation of the game."
Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is out on February 24 next year for PC, PS4 and PS Vita. Are you looking forward to seeing Berserk in this video game?
