    Though it was to release this September, Bandai Namco's Souls-like action game Code Vein has been officially pushed back to a 2019 release. The reason for the delay is so that the gameplay and overall experience can be refined, which means the game needs extra development time. When Code Vein does launch next year, it'll be for Playstation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

    Can Tecmo learn from this then? Because gameplay is so important, and I rather wait than getting a junk game.

    excellent choice.

    from gameplay something does look a bit off.. like how enemies respond to impact

    Hopefully they delayed it to make her shirt look more ripped up.

    judging from the pic, it's an Anime Dark Souls with b00bs, WOW, Bamco has evolved into whole another level of Fan service!

    Right as INTENDED ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    They should just clone Granblue Fantasy Project Re: LInk, and put their own dark-souls-esque spin on it (albeit it looks more like a cross between soulsacrifice and god eater). If Platinum Games deliver, that will be the pinnacle of animu-style action game

    I'm not into Dark Souls, but I want this because it actually looks good and fun.

    Hopefully delayed so they can get a jump on a Switch port!

    It was inevitable to happen. Back when I tested the alpha builds, it was such a mess that I was surprised they're gonna release the game this year.
    Rather than being upset about the delay, i'm glad Bamco understood what the fans think about it's current state.
    Better play it safe than rushing a game for easy money.

    The art in general. I actually like the 3d anime look, when its done right. Plus this looks like a post-apocalyptic Tokyo Ghoul to me. Where as Dark Souls is more jank, victorian sombre.

    And boobs *nods*

    I didn't know most people didn't like that European Fantasy medieval theme, I thought that was the point of dark souls. :P

    Is interesting though, I always thought the game is boring. But I only watch people play it, not actually play it myself so I guess it is different experience. But if I don't see something fun happen, it doesn't make me want to play more. :ninja:

    Oh, I doubt it's most people. I just prefer the brighter colors. Always was a sucker for neons :P
    It's not just the art style though. It also looks like it's alot faster paced, where as DS is slow and careful. That's not really for me. Slow is very boring.

    So same kind of game, with better art, and faster gameplay = win win win for me.

    Well not everyone is a patient gamer, who can be with so many games to play coming out. I hope this game has multiplayer cause playing with friends working together changes the slow gameplay. :ninja:

    Agreed. Lan/Online play would be very well suited for this, since you seem to be followed by a companion alot of the time.

    It's pretty much what people here have been saying, anime Dark Souls lol. I think myself and Chary should have a video on it going live within a few days with some impressions and footage if you're interested in that to gauge whether it's for you.

    It'll probably be on the front page when it's made in the next few days.
