Koei Tecmo Games began streaming two new gameplay videos on Saturday for its Berserk Musou game that highlight the playable characters Casca and Judeau.

The site previously streamed gameplay videos for Guts and Griffith earlier this month.

The game's official site also announced on Friday that the character Wyald is joining the game as a playable character. Wyald will have both a Black Dog Knights form (pictured below left) and an apostle form (pictured below right). The full playable character roster now includes: Guts, Griffith, Casca, Judeau, Serpico, Schierke, Zodd, and Wyald.

KOEI Tecmo Games and Omega Force's game will ship in Japan on October 27, after a delay for the original release date of September 21.

The game will ship in Japan on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. The download and standard physical release of the game for PS4 will retail for 7,800 yen (about US$74), and for PS Vita for 6,800 yen (US$65). The PS3 version will be download only and will retail for 7,800 yen. The first edition of game will include a code for a special "bathing" costume for Casca.

Other bonuses in Japan vary by retailer, and include costumes for Griffith, Guts, and Schierke, or physical items such as a key holder or microfiber cloth.

Koei Tecmo Europe and Koei Tecmo America have both confirmed a Western release this fall on the PS4, PS Vita, and PC via Steam. Producer Hisashi Koinuma said in an interview at E3 that the company is "looking into" an Xbox One release in America and a Steam release in Japan. Koinuma also said that the game's story will start from the beginning in order to accommodate action game fans who are new to the franchise, and will follow the story up through the story in the currently airing anime.
