There’s something really appealing about anime based games … when they’re done properly, of course. The iconic cartoon art style is appealing and fun without catering too much, if at all, to children. If anything this look enhances the blood, gore and violence that is often so present now in adult based games. With this being said Bandai Namco have just announced a PS4 European exclusive. The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Brittania has been set for release sometime early next year.
This title, which is based on the the popular manga and anime series, is to be released in both digital format and as a box set with EFIGS localisation. The story follows the adventures of The Seven Deadly Sins, a legendary gang of rebels who have been blamed for overthrowing the Kingdom of Lionesse. The group are attempting to evade elite guards called the Holy Knights when a young girl appears desparately needing to find them. From this point the action packed adventure begins.
“The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Brittania contributes significantly and increase the value of our Anime line-up,” says Antoine Jamet, Brand Manager at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe. “We are confident that all the anime lovers and fans of The Seven Deadly Sins will be amused to join the journey and rush into the battle.”
If this is even remotely faithful to the source material, and knowing Bandai Namco it absolutely will be, it’s going to be a brilliant game. Being in Europe I’ll be keeping an eye on this one and you may well be hearing more from me on the subject in the coming months. I’ll certainly be keeping my ear to the ground for you while we wait for its release in 2018.
