Anime News Network's coverage of Anime Expo 2019 is sponsored by Yen Press.
Bandai Namco Entertainment America revealed the opening cinematic video for the Code Vein post-apocalyptic role-playing game at its Anime Expo panel on Friday.
The game will launch in Japan on September 26, and will launch in North America and Europe on September 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Bandai Namco Entertainment announced last July that the game's release has been delayed to this year. The game was originally slated to launch in Japan in September 2018.
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 anime studio ufotable is animating the opening cinematic, and VAMPS is performing the opening song "Underworld."
Kotoni Shiroishi launched the CODE VEIN ‐Memory echoes- manga adaptation of the game in Kadokawa's Dengeki PlayStation magazine in June 2018.
