God Eater 2 Gets Enhanced Version, Anime Series And Soul Sacrifice Crossover

By   /   Sep 18, 2014

As Tokyo Game Show 2014 rolls on through, there are tons of new announcements and some don’t even talk about Final Fantasy. Publisher Bandai Namco is pitching more content for its God Eater franchise in Japan, which will receive several adaptations.

First and foremost, God Eater 2: Rage Burst was recently announced and will make its way to Playstation 4 and PS Vita this winter in Japan. Gameplay is similar to the Monster Hunter series, in a more anime-style wrapper.

Characters can pick up a different array of exaggerated weaponry and then travel to large locations where even huger monsters roam. Battles are usually on the longer side, as the towering giants take some punishment, while dishing out powerful blows of their own that force parties to heal up, retreat and strike when appropriate.

Along with the game, Bandai Namco will launch God Eater as a TV anime series as well. Its production is in hands of Ufotable, who has worked on presentations for games before, on such things as the Fate and “Tales of” series.

Moreover, God Eater content will show up in another PS Vita game, Soul Sacrifice. Marduk will be an enemy in the similar third person game and characters will be able to get special costumes, weapons and magic.

Bear in mind that these items are only announced for Japan so far, but its localization may happen in the future. We talked about Gods Eater Burst just recently, in a Playstation Store sale.

Just like the previous example, God Eater 2: Rage Burst isn’t a fully new title, but rather an expansion on God Eater 2 that already released in Japan last year.

The very first God Eater released on PSP in Japan in 2010, then later brought over to Western audiences at the end of the handheld’s cycle. These new developments are part of the franchise’s modest five year anniversary.
