Beserk is developed by Omega Force, the studio responsible for the Warriors games, with longtime Berserk manga writer and artist Kentaro Miura writing it. The game was first revealed in June, but at the time it was only confirmed for release in Japan, where it'll be available on PS4, PS3, and Vita.

Berserk will be released for PS4, Vita, and PC outside of Japan sometime this fall. Physical and digital versions will be available for PS4, while it'll be a digital-only release for Vita and PC (through Steam). A PS3 release won't happen in North America or Europe.

According to Koei Tecmo president Hisashi Koinuma, Berserk will be "enjoyable even to those who don't normally play games."

"In this game, players can experience and immerse themselves into the world of Berserk as the main character Guts, wielding his powerful weapon Dragon Slayer mercilessly slashing enemies in half, and through the massive story beginning with the Golden Age arc," he said.

"The game content will be enjoyable even to those who don't normally play games, so we hope all fans of Berserk will give this game a go. Become a member of Guts and his group, and experience the exhilaration of the most lethal Warriors game within the intense world of Berserk."
