Bandai Namco has published the first character trailer for Code Vein in Japan, featuring Mia Karnstein who is being voiced in Japanese by Ai Kayano. Mia is one of the Buddy characters you can choose to accompany yourself on the journey, other than Io, Yakumo, Louis, Jack, and Eva.
You can watch Mia Karnstein's character trailer just below, and don't forget to also check out her gameplay details right after that. [Update: English trailer also posted]
Mia fights with Bayonet as her weapon of choice and Stinger as her Blood Veil. She will take some distance from her enemy and mainly shoots them with gunfire, but she will also support the player by enhancing abilities to absorb blood and use Gifts. As Mia has a lower durability when compared with other Buddies, the player should try their best to keep the enemies busy with close-range attacks if they want to have Mia as their Buddy.
Here are some examples of Gifts that can be used by Mia:
- Blood-Eating Sword: Temporarily increase own and Buddy's ability to absorb blood from weapon attacks.
- Guard of Honor: Create multiple ice pillars and launches them with a time lag towards the target. Mia will only use this Gift on boss battles. It is powerful because it can deal huge damage from far range.
Co-op Gift with Mia (available when she is your buddy):
- Trance Time: Temporarily sacrifices melee attack power to reduce the consumption of Ichor when using Gifts.
Bandai Namco's Code Vein is going to be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in Japan on September 27 and in the West on September 28.
