God Eater Burst Comes With Reversible Covers

When it releases in Japan on October 28th, God Eater expansion pack, God Eater Burst, will be available to gamers in two forms: as a standalone and an append version.

 

The standalone version is the full game, priced at 5,229 yen, and comes with Burst’s leading Aragami, Hannibal, on the cover:

The append version is an add-on disc you can buy, containing all of Burst’s new features, if you already own the original God Eater. The append version’s cover uses another Aragami, Susano, and looks like this:

The difference is beyond simply artistic. According to Namco Bandai’s God Eater development blog, the standalone version of God Eater Burst’s cover focuses on communicating that Burst contains all of the content from the original game. The two characters on the cover are wearing old equipment from the original.

 

Meanwhile, the append version aims at conveying the new costume and weapon design, and add-ons in Burst. However! Regardless of which version you buy, you’ll be able to use either cover — God Eater Burst comes with reversible packaging. Here, look:

D3 Publisher are set to release the standalone God Eater Burst in North America sometime in 2011. In Europe, Namco will retain publishing rights to the game. Provided there’s no reversible packaging, which cover would you prefer?

    I wish more games had reversible covers. My friend showed me the Dissidia reversible cover and I thought one of the best I’ve seen.

      Yeah I love reversible covers too, like for Fragile Dreams, it gives the best of both worlds. People who may want to look at the back of the case for more information or whatever can well it’s on shelf. And for collectors, once home you can reverse the cover for something with that is has much higher artistic value, and have a really sharp looking game on your shelf >w<'

      I like the look of God Eater's reversible covers, the red/orange one I like a lot more then the pinkish one though.

    I want one that has the UMD inside the case.

    When it said “Reversible”, I thought it was upside down. Lol.

    Both are so pretty~
    I think I like the black-pink one a bit better because of the perspective and the fact that it has a focal point.
