Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for Code Vein, the new IP that is routinely being described as 'anime Dark Souls' (including on this site, because it's a pithy soundbite), featuring some accolades the game has gotten from press at preview stage.

The trailer shows you some nice shots of the spiky, cyberpunk-goth architecture and characters, as well as sneak peeks at some of the giant bosses and regular trash mobs you'll have to face off against. Accolades include being described as 'new and refreshingly anime-kissed' and 'unique in its own right'. 

In Code Vein you play as a vampire who can use cool blood powers and weapons, many of which are giant ornate swords, as you can see in the video. We also played Code Vein, but it didn't go well

Code Vein is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2018.
