Berserk and the Band of the Hawk gets a western release date


'Tell me what, tell me what, tell me what you want'

It looks like February is going to be a ridiculously busy month. Not only are we going to see the releases of Nioh, Persona 5, and Horizon Zero Dawn, but Koei Tecmo has announced that February will also see the western release of the upcoming Berserk Musou.

Alongside news of a release date, Koei Tecmo has also confirmed that the upcoming Musou based on the Berserk franchise will be officially titled Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. This was kind of to be expected, as Amazon Japan had a listing for a game of the same title prior to this announcement.

I really can't see myself referring to the game by its official title often, however. It's just much easier to call it "Berserk Warriors" during casual conversation. That's just a minor nitpick, and Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is still one of my more anticipated games of 2017.

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk will be released on February 21 in the U.S. and February 24 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Vita and PC. Check out the (probably NSFW) trailer below:
