Code Vein Game Gets Manga Spinoff

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Dark fantasy game launches in September

Kotoni Shiroishi launched the CODE VEIN ‐Memory echoes- manga adaptation of Bandai Namco Entertainment's Code Vein game in Kadokawa's Dengeki PlayStation magazine on Thursday. The manga debuted in the magazine's bundled Monthly Dengeki PlayStation Comic (DenPla Comic) book.

The manga's spinoff story centers on the Revenant Louis, who is also known as Sekiken (Red Sword).

Bandai Namco Entertainment describes the game:

In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world as we know it. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity's past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity.

The game will launch in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 27, and for PC via Steam on September 28. The game will launch outside Japan for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on September 28.

The anime studio ufotable is animating the opening cinematic, and VAMPS is performing the opening song "Underworld."
