Koei Tecmo have released media and information showing off Berserk and the Band of the Hawk‘s devastating “awakening” abilities.
In this game version of Berserk the characters are set to have hidden strengths that must be awakened to allow them to reach their true potential. These awakening abilities offer a boost in ability that will allow you to smash through enemies in your path like they’re made of paper. For example; Guts’ Berserker Armor will allow him to unleash insane smashes, while Griffith’s demonic Femto form will enable him to deal fast damage, and Zodd’s giant Apostle form allows him to “effortlessly topple foes.” Awakening abilities are nothing to scoff at!
As for who and/or what you’ll be fighting against with this power, there’ll be Evil Spirits, Ogres, Kelpies, Golems, Trolls, Demonic Knights, and more! Some of them are so strong that you’ll even need to upgrade your weaponry with collectible raw materials in order to take them out efficiently, so always be looking to stock up.
Now that they’ve been introduced, check out the awakening abilities, some foes, and even some battlefields below;
If any of that looks or sounds good to you, keep an eye on the date; Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is due out February 21st in North America, and February 24th in Europe.
