God Eater 2 Learns What Attacks You Use And Evolves Them

By Spencer . July 25, 2012 . 1:30pm


Ahh weapon proficiency, that reminds me of Final Fantasy II, but you don’t have to clonk your own characters in the head in God Eater 2. As your character uses special attacks and skills, they’ll naturally evolve into stronger and cooler looking attacks. That’s the Blood Arts system in a nutshell.

Blood Arts are tied to the character that learns them, so even if you change swords you’ll retain your Blood Arts. While most Blood Arts are learned by fighting Aragami, some of God Eater 2’s skills have to be unlocked through special conditions. Famitsu has more screenshots of Blood Arts for the short blade, charge spear, buster blade, boost hammer, and long blade. There are over 100 Blood Arts for players to learn in God Eater 2.


Gods Eater Burst players may remember Alisa. Now eighteen years old, Alisa returns for God Eater 2 with more determination now that she has come to terms with a past trauma explained in Gods Eater Burst.

  • Sounds pretty interesting. Really like the first one, and I haven’t finished it yet.

    Sadly being a PSP game… I don’t think we will see this game here. 

    • Vampiric

       The sad part is if the vita keeps going the way its going the psp is looking better

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    holy crap thats epic!! and 
    Alisa is 18 now? ………..:|     :)       :}   :D

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      Woohoo, she’s legal!!! =^D

      (And still hasn’t learn the concept of a “bra”, not that I’m complaining…)

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        indeed :3

    • KnightBlazer

       She has that new 18 smell.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething


  • SlashZaku

    Really hoping this gets released in the West, having enjoyed the first but I already know that’s a lost hope.  Maybe if that ‘special announcement’ is a Vita version, they’ll localize both =

    • You like that don’t ya? *speak in a scottish accent*

  • xavier axol

    so it’s still a psp game? wow..i would had guess that namco was making a 3ds and vita version, i know vita can play psp games, but been develop for the vita is a different story. so it means, yet another game that won’t see the light of day outside of japan. and the list of psp games is getting bigger, must be nice to live in japan. :'(

  • Yu_TheKing

    Liking the look of the spear (lance) and Blood arts in general. Definitely hoping there will be more areas, less color/texture swaps and more original challenging Aragami. 

  • Enigma_XIV

    U.S. release please.

  • Rudy Soto

    By the look of the character models, they switched over to the old visuals. Which is a good thing honestly, I wasn’t really fond  of the new “Type-0” look, and I’m glad the old look is back.

  • I know it looks grim, but don’t give up hope people! The first one made it over so maybe, just maybe we might see this sometime in the future. Perhaps it will be downloadable only for Vita/PSP. Lord knows I hope so. =^_^=

    • ZEROthefirst

      I hope it gets localized too, I just hope we can avoid D3 getting it and never getting any DLC.

    • Well, at least, this game has a better chance of coming stateside compared to Lord of Apocalypse.

      • I’m with you on that one as well. I wish it was coming stateside too.

  • Going to use a term my friend likes to use when he sees weapons he likes. “That sword is beast” Must get my hands on this game! Even if it means keeping my handy dandy dictionary near by (✿❛◡❛)

  • I really must download GEB for my Vita. My UMD wont play and somehow my save got corrupted before I could finish it. Man I loved that game.

  • 猫 黒

    Did they ditch the bullet system?  I hope they ditched the bullet system; this Blood Arts system looks a lot better.  The bullets sounded good on paper but just ended up being a couple of very powerful and efficient bullets and one weapon type, grinding the same 5 monsters over and over again.  Variety in monsters, environment and weapons made monster hunter a lot better than god eater, though I hope GE2 can break out of that mold.

    • xXDGFXx

      Bullets were fun for me. Fire a shot that hits the monster, creates a stationary decoy-orb from the fired position that then launches 3 homing shots into the air.

  • That sounds awesome. This kind of customization is always the coolest, because it’s so interesting to see what you get! Unfortunately, that can also work against you if your playstyle results in something lame – and all your hard work was for naught. :P

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I really, really, REALLY need to learn japanese…. so many good games ara goin to stay in that lenguaje.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Didn’t think it was possible for Alisa to look even more delicious but I guess I was proven wrong.

    • neocatzon

      now we have center boobs!

    •  I know, right….

  • Such a shame that this game is coming out on the PSP. Makes it all the less likely to come out in the West.

  • kupomogli

    Anyone know the name change reason for Gods Eater in western markets?  Is God Eater already copyrighted?

    • Probably to dodge religion sensitivity.  “Gods” seems to be more mythical maybe?  I dunno.

  • sherimae1324

    now i want a release date ^_^ tee-hee

    • Is tht a Syo avatar u r using???? 

  • harmonyworld


  • Awesome new mechanic. What’s even more awesome is the return of Alisa!

  • Abhishek Posooa

    I just hope that our character has more interactions with the others.

    • Crimson_Cloud

       I would like to see that as well. The first game had awesome cast and it’s a shame that your character was a silent one so you could never go into a decent conversation with them.

      • Abhishek Posooa

        Yup,and some romance would fit in very well.
        In the first game I thought I would get Alisa cuz I saved her how many times and helped her emotionally and stuff but noooooo…
        Was really disappointed about this.

  • “…players may remember Alisa. Now eighteen years old, Alisa returns for God Eater 2 with…” – so uh, how old is she in geb? omg omg omg my imagination.

    don’t tell me we’ll still be cramped in the same fenrir HQ? >_>

  • AzuNo17

    Cleavage, side-boob, and under-boob protagonists. Can’t wait to see who the other two will be.

  • Hope they will include the older ver of Soma and Kota too.

    Alisa shirt has a…. interesting origin if u read the 2nd break manga tht serve as a prequel to GE2. For those who r lazy, she couldn’t zip the shirt up due to obvious reason and she doesn’t care. Soma and Kota reaction is basically: Meh, the kind of stuff u usually wear.

  • Looks lk Kota returning too judging by the link?? Now where Soma??

  • I just want to see Brendan and Tatsumi… and Kanon… God I hope she got better. Never really used Kota, Soma and Alisa, but I doubt I’ll see my favorite three.
