Developer and publisher KOEI TECMO Games has certainly been rolling out plenty of game-related news during this year’s Tokyo Game Show, although that news isn’t just necessarily directed toward those living within Japan. Today KOEI TECMO has officially confirmed that developer Omega Force’s upcoming game Berserk and the Band of the Hawk would be heading to North America.

Based on the popular anime and manga series Berserk, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, this Warriors-styled adventure follows the Berserk series’ Golden Age story arc, which featured the meeting between The Band of the Hawk leader Griffith, and the legendary Black Swordsman Guts. Additionally, the game is to also feature the Millennium Empire story arc, in which players will experience for themselves some of the most brutal battles within the Berserk series as they fend off enemies both human and demon alike.

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is slated to release on February 21st, 2017 in North America for the PlayStation 4, and will also be available for purchase via digital download on the PlayStation Vita and WIndows PC via Steam.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
