God Eater Demo Hints At Future Success

By Ishaan . January 5, 2010 . 12:49pm


Everyone’s got a Monster Hunter inspired game. It’s the new portable trend. Konami’s is Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Namco Bandai’s is God Eater. And by virtue of being a Monster Hunter clone, it’s already primed for success.


At least, that’s what the demo indicates, which Inside Games report has been downloaded 1 million times. Namco are taking the feedback they received from demo players into account and tweaking the final build of the game accordingly, too. There’s also a new 2010 trailer of the game.



God Eater is scheduled for a February 4, 2010 release in Japan. When it’s finally published, you’ll be able to transfer characters from the demo to the final game, which is probably part of the reason the demo did so well.

    Anyone played it yet? Is it good?

  • Code

    I played it, and did the translation sticky for it on Gamefaqs, it was pretty fun although not nearly as refined as MH, I figure it’ll still do pretty good all round, I’d definitely give it a shot if it comes out here.

    Looks cliche as hell, but seems interesting.

  • Now the only question is will or not Bamco localize this…

    Good seiyus,i recognized zoro and sanji from ONE PIECE and shinpachi from Gintama
    Animations made by Ufotable(Kara no kyoukai……….Masterpiece)
    Opening and Ending songs (MH dont have this)
    They put a plot for the game(Phantasy star made…………nah that plot was crap)
    All of this means that they are putting a lot for the success of this game.

    I played the demo alone(probably not so funny as multiiplayer) and………yeah its funny but MH battles are more exciting and needs more brain.

    However PSP games are cheap so im sure its going to sell well but with opponents like MG(Konami) and Kingdom Hearts(Square Enix)………i dont know.
    Exosisters died recently so………i just dont know =P

    • Code

      It’s hard to compete with MH for it’s gameplay, MH is definitely more refined, but it’s the pacing of it’s game play that makes it both challenging and intelligent, and God Eater just doesn’t have that quality to it’s game play, it’s still a fun game but when stacking it face to face with MH, it’s mechanics feel marginally more hollow, and less thought out.

  • I haven’t played the demo yet, but from how things are looking right now, this is gonna be some kind of .hack but with a different title. Definitely in my to buy list
