Bandai Namco's New Project Leaks; Reveals Upcoming Dystopian RPG
Earlier this month, Bandai Namco revealed that the company is developing a "new game." which was first thought of as Bayonetta 3. The developers created a site countdown on which the official reveal will drop on April 20. However, a leaked image from a Japanese magazine spoiled the debut a lot earlier than expected. Here's everything there is to know about Bandai Namco's new project dubbed as "Tonight We Dine."
Tonight We Dine: Code Vein
Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu has apparently leaked the image of the upcoming Bandai Namco project, Code Vein, which was initially dubbed as "Tonight We Dine." Many fans linked the project to the popular Dark Souls but it turns out that it is nothing but a mere nod to the title. In fact, the team, which is currently in charge of the current project (the same group that leads the development of 2010's God Eater), pointed out that the team is developing an entirely new genre - even saying that Code Vein is a "dramatic exploration hard core RPG."
Code Vein's Rough Plot
Not much is known about Code Vein aside from the game's rough plot. As translated by Gematsu, Code Vein takes players in a dystopian universe where they will control beings called Revenants. These creatures are basically vampires with supernatural abilities. Due to their drastic "evolution", they have lost their memories in the process. A Revenant that fails to consume enough blood will ultimately transform into a mindless monster called a "Lost."
The player will take control of a Revenant, using melee weapons to assault and kill enemy targets. The game will offer a myriad of weaponry including short swords, spears, hammers and more. These weapons are also supplemented by the Revenant's abilities to further augment its potency.
Code Vein Release Date
According to the translated version, the development of Code Vein is currently at 35 percent, which means that players will have to wait a little longer for the official release. Furthermore, the official announcement will drop later today, following the conclusion of the site countdown. Check back for more Code Vein news and update!
