Action game ships in Japan on October 27, in N. America/Europe in February

Koei Tecmo Games began streaming a third promotional video on Thursday for Omega Force's Berserk and the Band of the Hawk (Berserk Musou) video game.

Koei Tecmo Games also began streaming three commercials for the game and a video for the "bathing" costume for Casca on Thursday. The first edition of game in Japan will include a code for the costume. The more Casca fights in the costume, the more transparent the costume becomes.

Koei Tecmo Games streamed a video last week highlighting gameplay footage for the Femto form for Griffith.

Koei Tecmo Games previously streamed gameplay videos for Guts (Guts in Berserker Armor), Griffith, Casca, Judeau, Schierke, Zodd, Serpico, and Wyald.

The game will ship in North America on February 21, and in Europe on February 24.

The game's full playable character roster currently includes: Guts, Griffith, Casca, Judeau, Serpico, Schierke, Zodd, and Wyald. Players can also play as Griffith in his Femto form. The game will feature an "Infinite Eclipse" mode and a "Behelit Collection" mode. The game will also feature about two hours of anime footage from Studio 4°C's anime film trilogy.

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.

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 that the Western release will be for 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 recently concluded anime.
