Code Vein, Bandai Namco's vampire Souls looking joint, is still rad


Here's new footage from Anime Expo

Bandai Namco loves to hype up their stuff with trailers that showcase anime cutscenes, explosions, and lots of drama, but it takes them a while to give us cold hard gameplay. Enter this demo video for Code Vein from Anime Expo, which gives us a few head-to-head confrontations with the demonic enemies.

We naturally get a look at the slower methodical action, which seems to rely heavily on an iFrame roll system. Although the game has more in common with the God Eater series (among many other MH-likes Bandai has created or published over the years), you can definitely see the Souls influence from top to bottom. Really, I'm mostly here for the vampire angle.

Code Vein will arrive in 2018 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
