Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation Dx2 is holding its latest collaboration that will run between May 27 and June 10, with temporary appearances of characters from the popular manga/anime, Berserk.
Once the event kicks off on Wednesday, Guts, Schierke, and Skull Knight are going to be playable by default. While another figure, Mozgus, may require further step than just playing the game to unlock.
The Berserk Crew
Players who like to play as one of the ‘good guys’ can choose Guts and his massive Greatsword that smashes through enemies with much damage. Alternatively, there’s Shierke and her wand that casts powerful spells against enemies.
Those who are keen on using a character whose allegiance is a mystery can choose Skull Knight that comes fully equipped for combat. While seemingly a melee type of character, this enigmatic can also cast potent dark spells.
Mozgus is also another interesting character to make into the game who played as an antagonist to Guts in the anime. Despite its fearsome and powerful looks, Mozgus also embodies human form.
As of writing, the method to unlock Mozgus is still unknown. Even the special webpage aimed at promoting the event comes short of leaving only Guts’ profile in it and little of anything else.
Each character will retain their original Japanese dubbing based on their respective voiceovers from the 2016 anime.
The event may still be a few days away to actually kick in. But Liberation Dx2 is currently running a countdown event since May 20, 2020 in anticipation of the collaborative effort.
At five days deep into the event, players can still claim the following daily bonus rewards:
- 5th: Magnetite x200,000
- 6th: +50 Stamina
- 7th: Yata Mirror 5-star
- 8th: Gems (Fee) x100
As a special note, it seems that the listed bonuses are subject to changes without prior notice. But given how close we are now with the ‘Berserk’ event, it seems fairly certain that these daily prizes would’ve been solid already.
Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation Dx2 is not necessarily a stranger when it comes to cooperative projects that coincide with its niche. Previously, characters from both Capcom’s Devil May Cry and PlatinumGames’ Bayonetta have made appearances in-game.
To the uninitiated, both Devil May Cry and Bayonetta are franchises whose universes have a ‘demonic’ theme in them, similar to Shin Megami Tensei. Berserk, bearing also the same motif, therefore, hardly comes surprisingly.
