Get On That At Your Earliest Convenience
If you’re thirsting for more delicious Dark Souls action, then maybe this will wet your whistle? Bandai Namco Entertainment has released a Code Vein demo for PS4 and the Xbox One. Having tested this one out at various E3s, you should definitely take the plunge.
That’s not to say that Code Vein scoops up that elusive Dark Souls flavor with nary a hitch! But, how else will you discern for yourself the measure of this ambitious project? What company besides Bandai Namco would be so bold as to blend anime and soulsborne mechanics with such reckless bravado?
My own experience with the game (however limited) has left me cautious but curious. This is a big swing on their part, but Bandai Namco RPGs all come with certain familiar signatures. The dialogue, the larger aesthetic, the controls, and the base mechanics all ring with familiar tones. Perhaps Code Vein will be the one to break from thsi well-worn pattern? If nothing else, I’m grabbing the demo to find out for sure. Code Vein is coming out on September 27th, 2019 for PS4, PC, and the Xbox One.
