Third Berserk Film to Open in January

The third and final film in the new Berserk trilogy, Descent, is set to open in January 2013, according to the film’s official website. The trilogy, animated by Studio 4°C, adapts the “Golden Age” arc of the popular fantasy manga.

Studio 4°C’s Berserk triptych kicked off this February with the release of The Egg of the King, followed by The Doldrey War in June. Berserk, the story of a swordsman named Guts, was previously adapted as a 25-episode anime series in 1997. The new films have garnered some criticism for their poor integration of CG and hand-drawn animation, but have been otherwise well-reviewed.

A teaser trailer also recently popped online:
