Bandai Namco is going full tilt at public relations when it comes to Code Vein. Last week the world met Mia Karnstein and today, they will meet even more. Two new trailers were released to introduce fans to a pair of the game's characters: Yakumo Shinonome and Louis.

Yakumo Shinonome wields a broadsword that causes wide AoE damage when he swings it in concert with his "Hounds-type Blood Veil".

Louis is the young leader of the Revenants and is actively working to find a cure for the growing problem of blood lust. According to Gamespot, Louis "fights with the Ogre-style Blood Veil which morphs his arm into a giant claw". Spooky...

Code Vein is set for release on PC, XBox One and PlayStation 4 on September 28th.

In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world as we know it. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity’s past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity. Wandering aimlessly in search of blood, the Lost will stop at nothing to satisfy their hunger. Team up and embark on a journey to the ends of hell to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare in CODE VEIN.
