Today Namco Bandai released new information, screenshots and art about the upcoming PSP action adventure God Eater 2.
The game is set in the year 2074, three years after the previous chapter (released in the west as God Eater Burst). The Aragami are still a threat, and the hero, part of a special force named “Blood”, stationed on the mobile fortress “Freyja”,visits the far eastern section of the anti-Aragami organization Fenrir.
In the meanwhile a new species of Aragami is rampaging in the far east, and a mysterious red rain seems to be spreading an incurable disease.
The player character, that can be both male or female, is part of Blood, that represents the third generation of God Eaters. The new character models show a new and adjusted design and also allow more varied facial expressions for a better display of emotion. Character customization will also be deeper than in the original game.
In God Eater the player character was able to use only swords, while in God Eater 2 new weapons will be introduced, the Boost Hammer and the Charge Spear. More details about how they will work will be shared at a later time.
A number of new Aragami will appear, sporting new powers and a new leader, named Marduk. The player will have to be very careful around them.
Many new environments will also be introduced, for instance the Blue Ice Gorge, a place of terrible beauty still not devastated by the Aragami. The new areas will also be much larger than the ones in the previous game.
