Code Vein is released this Friday and it's shaping up to be one of the more exciting RPGs in some time. If you like your RPGs anime and Dark Souls-inspired then the Bandai Namco production is a must-have in your collection.
It's set in a post-apocalyptic world where vampiric beings fight and kill for the remaining supplies of blood. Without it, they risk the fear of turning into a "fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity who wander aimlessly in search of blood." The promo shots show characters wielding huge blades ready for slicing and dicing until a supply of blood is made available to avoid the aforementioned doom of ghoul. You just know it's going to be full of blood.
Only a few physical stores are stocking it so it might be easier to flock to an online store to nab yourself a copy. Amazon have again hoodwinked retailers and are offering the cheapest price for a physical copy with free shipping. But if you'd prefer to support smaller retailers or just want the PC digital code, check out the full list below.
