Berserk is a franchise (in)famous for two reasons: compelling storytelling and ultraviolence. A dark fantasy, Berserk has its origins in manga but has been adapted into an anime TV series, three anime movies (the third of which was released late last week), and two video games.
The first, Sword of the Berserk: Guts Rage, was an original standalone side story for the Dreamcast and was released in the West. The second game, Berserk: Millennium Falcon Arc: Chapter of the Holy Demon War for the PS2, was not. This is a real shame, because Berserk: Millennium Falcon Arc: Chapter of the Holy Demon War is a game tailor-made for fans of Berserk—with all the giant-sword-swinging, demon-slaying violence they have come to expect in the series.
Now, with the truly violent Berserk: Golden Age Arc III: Descent hitting theaters in Japan this month, let's take a look back at Berserk: Millennium Falcon Arc: Chapter of the Holy Demon War.
