Koei Tecmo Will Keep Berserk Tame With CERO D Rating



Koei Tecmo’s President Hisashi Koinuma talked about Omega Force’s upcoming Berserk title in an interview with Gamer, where he shared info on the game’s ratings, series creator Kentaro Miura’s involvement, and more. [Thanks, Play-Asia.]


Here are some highlights from the interview:


Is Mr. Miura interested in the game adaptation of his creation?
Koinuma: Since we announced Koei will be working on a Berserk Warriors, Mr. Miura has sent us a New Years Postcard every single year haha. Mr. Miura is a man grounded in reality and he really wanted the Warriors feeling to remain, but with a Berserk flair, he’s even supervised the creation of the game from the very start.


Will the game’s story be following alongside the manga’s story?
As we did with our “Fist of the North Star” and “Attack on Titan” games, we like to create a story that fans will love yet newcomers can also come and enjoy as if they picked up the very first volume. Berserk Warriors will begin from the Golden Age whereas the anime will pick up from after Guts became a Black Swordsman.


What CERO rating are you aiming for?
Our policy at Koei is that we will never release a Z rating (18+) game and like “Fist of the North Star” before we managed to get a CERO D (17+) rating.


Will the game be released in America on the Xbox One?
We are currently considering Steam and other platforms for Japan at this time.

Berserk will release in Japan on September 21, 2016 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.
