Dark Souls Meets Final Fantasy in Code Vein

The Dark Souls series may have come to an end, but that doesn’t mean that Bandai Namco is about to stop creating dark, twisted games.  In fact, the developer has come up with a new idea that takes the jrpg genre and injects it with some darkness.  This is Code Vein.

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.

If this looks right up your alley, you’ll have to be patient for a little bit.  Bandai Namco doesn’t intend on releasing Code Vein this year.  This will be a title making our Most Anticipated list for 2018!

As more information comes out for the new Bandai Namco title, we’ll have it here on Cinelinx!
