CODE VEI N
Now that From Software has moved on to non-Dark Souls pastures, Bandai Namco is looking to fill the hole left in its library. Enter Code Vein, a vampire-themed, post-apocalyptic, anime-style action-RPG with many of the Dark Souls/Bloodborne trappings: slow, deliberate, and methodical hacking and slashing; punishing enemies and bosses; maybe some exquisite environmental storytelling? It certainly looks very different from any of From’s games, for better or worse, and the companion system certainly is novel. Littered throughout the game are various characters you can pick to accompany you on your adventure. They all have different weapons and abilities so you’ll need to choose wisely.
There’s also a robust character creator so you can make your own anime goth boy or girl. Expect to be donning lots and lots of black leather.
