Rough Translation: We can finally reveal the details today! The “Warriors” franchise will enter its most evil collaboration with “Berserk Warriors” this year! We’ll continue to deliver the latest news on the game on this account. Also, be sure to check out the official website, as we’ve released a new teaser video!
Berserk Warriors will be based on Kentarou Miura’s Berserk manga series, which has been in publication since 1989. The series currently spans 37 collected volumes.
This is the latest “Warriors” cross-over from Koei Tecmo, who previously released the following:

- Hyrule Warriors (The Legend of Zelda)
- Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (The Heroic Legend of Arslan)
Berserk will receive a new anime series, which kicks off on July 1. Shin Itagaki (Ben-To, Black Cat) is in the director’s chair at Liden Films, with Hisashi Abe (Sorcerer Hunters, Gunslinger Girl) providing character designs. Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass: The Movie) is in charge of series composition, with Takashi Yamashita serving as his assistant. Shiro Sagisu (Berserk: The Golden Age, Neon Genesis Evangelion) is scoring the soundtrack.
Crunchyroll will simulcast the new series on their digital platform.
