The official site (thanks Gematsu for the translation!) details some new information regarding the title’s story, as well providing us some additional screenshots (below). While we already knew that Berserk Musuo is said to take place both during and after the Golden Age Arc, it is said that the title will now cover all the events up until the end of Millennium Falcon Arc. While it is unclear if the title is said to remove some of the manga’s content, the site did note that they will be incorporating events that were “not included” in the original Golden Age Arc movie series.
Along with the gameplay previews, it’s been confirmed that Guts will not be the only playable character within the game, as the site notes “various characters” as a main feature. In addition to this, fans of the anime movie(s) will be pleased to know that the game will feature the same voice actors.
According to Anime News Network, both Koei Tecmo Europe and Koei Tecmo America have confirmed that there will be a Western release for Berserk Musuo. No details as of yet for when we can expect these versions, nor has there been any confirmation if we’ll be receiving an English dub.
In addition to this, further E3 interviews from Gamer (thanks Anime News Network for the translation) have revealed that Koei Tecmo may also be looking at releasing an Xbox One version of Berserk Musuo exclusive to the West. If true, this would not be the first time that Koei Tecmo has released a console version exclusive to a certain region, as the Xbox One version of Arslan: The Warriors of Legend was also an exclusive for the West.
Berserk Musuo will launch in Japan on September 21st for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
