In an interview with Dengeki Online, Code Vein‘s Producer Keita Iizuka and Director Hiroshi Yoshimura stated that Bandai Namco‘s upcoming title should hopefully receive a worldwide release of the same version of the game.
“We want to make a game that will excite and be enjoyed by players around the world,” stated the developers, translated by Gematsu. “Moreover, we took the recent game market into account and thought we should make a title that will launch us into worldwide recognition.”
The producers continued to say that they felt there was no difference between Japanese and Western gamers in terms of “the nature of dungeon crawling RPGs and their experience with them,” and so therefore the game will not be adjusted for oversea players. “We will make final adjustments for the overall direction based on a single standard.”
Code Vein is an upcoming action RPG set in a future post-apocalyptic dystopia, with a vampire theme. The game is developed and published by Bandai Namco, by the same team responsible for God Eater, which was a highly successful and critical acclaimed title in Japan. Code Vein is set to be released in 2018.
