With buzz continuing to build for Bandai Namco‘s player-punishing, vampire-themed action RPG Code Vein, the publisher has opened the casket on a batch of enticing new screens. Featuring two of the game’s monstrous boss baddies, as well as a pair of Revenants–the game’s blood-sucking protagonists–the shots show off the game’s gorgeous character models, over-the-top combat, and overall anime-flavored visual style.
Bandai Namco also offered the following description for the two featured Revenants, Mia Karnstein and Yakumo Shinonome: “Mia is a wandering female Revenant accompanied by her younger brother, the only family she has left, whom she will do anything to protect. Her weapon of choice is a bayonet-styled weapon that can be used to attack at a distance. Yakumo is a Revenant and former mercenary, Yakumo is a faithful man who is good at taking care of others. He is loved by others and conducts himself in a cool and professional manner during combat.”
Code Vein hits Xbox One, PS4, and PC players, like a take through the heart, sometime in 2018.
