One of my fellow Enthusiast’s most aniticipated games of this year is Code Vein. Andrew Gonzalez is our joint editor in chief in this borough and is a huge fan of the Dark Souls series and loves anime. It makes sense then that he is excited about Code Vein. The action RPG from Bandai Namco looks like an anime, appears to have Dark Souls style combat, and to seal the deal features vampires. Well, to confirm the anime credentials of Code Vein, Bandai Namco has released the opening animation of the game. You can check it out below –
As you can see from the video, this looks just like anime. From the art-style to the framerate, the whole presentation screams anime. Obviously, there is no gameplay shown here but it’s still enough to keep us interested in the game. If this is on your radar then you won’t have too long to wait as it’s scheduled to launch on 26th September. If you are unfamiliar with the game, here’s the official description for Code Vein –
In the face of certain death, we rise.
In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world as we know it. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity’s past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. This ?nal stronghold is where the remaining few ?ght to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, ?endish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity. Wandering aimlessly in search of blood, the Lost will stop at nothing to satisfy their hunger. Team up and embark on a journey to the ends of hell to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare in CODE VEIN.
