Following up on last week’s delightful teaser, publisher Bandai Namco has formally pulled back the curtain on God Eater Resurrection and God Eater 2: Rage Burst, which are both headed west in 2016.
Slated for a summer release across PS4, PS Vita and PC via Steam, the localized versions have been billed as the next chapter in the God Eater series, and Namco’s VP of Marketing Hervé Hoerdt revealed that the franchise has sold north of 3 million copies in Asia across its five year stint on the market.
“In only 5 years, the God Eater franchise turned into a phenomenon in Japan, and Asia selling more than 3 million copies. This monster slaying universe isn’t only bound to games, as our teams managed to successfully expand the experience into other areas such as anime – available on Daisuki.net – but also manga and popular soundtracks. Our western fans have been asking to get their hands on a localized God Eater game, we heard them and to start with, we are bringing two of them.”
Situated in a world rife with the towering Aragami, God Eater Resurrection tasks players with going toe-to-toe with grotesque monsters as part of a specialized assault unit. Equipped with God Arcs, weapons that imbue you with the power to literally consume abilities from the beasts that you hunt, the JRPG also boasts a slew of customization options, and you can catch a fleeting glimpse of that and much more via today’s reveal trailer.
Both God Eater Resurrection and God Eater 2: Rage Burst will hit PS4, PS Vita and PC in 2016 for those in the west. Can you feel the hunger?
