Code Vein has its September launch creeping ever closer, and Bandai Namco has just released a new trailer to give us a closer look at one of the game’s main companion characters, Mia Karnstein.
Mia Karnstein has been a fairly visible character from as early as Code Vein’s initial reveal, in addition to be being the first revealed companion character, so it makes sense that she would eventually receive her own trailer.
While there currently isn’t an English version of this latest trailer, it’s fairly easy to see the main points. In addition to the signature rifle that Mia Karnstein has been seen brandishing around, we get a closer look at her own personal ‘Blood Veil,’ the ability to form a huge scorpion-like tail out of her back (judging by another trailer that has been released previously, the player will also be able to gain access to this power at some point). Perhaps most importantly we see more of Nikola, Mia’s little brother, and the fact that she seems to be primarily driven to protect him from the hellscape that the world has turned into. Time will tell if it’s a hopeless endeavour, though.
Interestingly enough, we also get to see what seems to be a pretty important moment between Mia Karnstein herself and the protagonist (the moment where she shakes the player-character’s hand), which is likely the moment she agrees to help the player. It seems interesting to put that moment in the trailer, though it’s also likely that the moment comes early into her character arch.
Of course, if you want to see more of the upcoming Code Vein, you can check out screenshots of the blood-fest in action. Additionally, more trailers and screenshots can be found on Bandai Namco’s office website for Code Vein itself.
The full release for Code Vein will be on the 27th of September in Japan and the 28th for all other territories on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
