God Eater 2’s Aragami Killing Weapons

By Spencer . August 2, 2012 . 3:03am

godeater21Namco Bandai and Shift’s hunting game God Eater 2 gives players a changing weapon that you can use to defeat monsters called Aragami.


One major change is the Blood Arts system, which upgrades special attacks as you continue to use them. There are over 100 Blood Arts in God Eater 2 and certain rare Blood Arts can only be unlocked under special conditions.

The attacks and Blood Arts you can use depend on what weapon you choose. Will you pick the Boost Hammer, Charge Spear or Long Sword?

  • Video please? I thought we already went over this stuff…

  • Derek E Nay

     Short sword my butt lol

  • Go2hell66

    shortsword all day every day <3

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    My kingdom for a domestic version of this game~.

  • Marik78

    It looks way better than the first one :3

    Maybe I’ll give it a try when it comes out…

  • I hope Kanon made a cameo…

  • XiaomuArisu

     I bet that Kota still watches that soapXD

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    its all about the hammers >:} time to go hammer bro on them 

    Kota: yay I’m going to watch bug o’raly when I get home

  • So I guess the character system still there??? 

    Since Kota in it, does this mean Soma in it too??

  • All these weapons are too awesome. I really really hope we get to see this localized since the first one made it over.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    I liked using the Short Sword in GE1/GEB, but I’m being enticed by that new Charge Spear… I wanna “poke” things with my magical shape-changing pointy stick… >=3

  • Marcelo Henrique Chaves

    Too bad they didn’t add my favorite weapon… Scythe. But looking good, can’t wait for a localization.

    • xXDGFXx

      A scythe would be pretty useless against Aragami…

      • So would a giant sword that’s impossible to carry and jump with.. ..oh wait, its a video game.

        • xXDGFXx

          No, not really. The sword can still smash/slash into it. This isn’t a pure hack-n-slash like Ys Seven where you just whack away till they die. Gathering materials and exploiting weaknesses is a big part of the game. The weapon type does matter, so a scythe would only hinder you.

          The game does have a rebound system where if you hit them with the wrong type of weapon, it rebounds and does (almost) nothing.

  • Prinnydoom

    EDIT: Aragami are the creatures you fight. The weapon you use is called a god arc or jinki in japanese.

  • They definitely have to make compatible for Vita cos I want to play something like this. Hopefully the first one can also be made compatible with the Vita, too. 

    • axelfire250

      The first one is already compatible for the Vita.

      • Awesome! Thanks. Just need this to get localized then.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Charge Spear for sure.^_^ It looks badass there and poking Aragami is surely the best way to kill enemies there.^_^

  • Nahhh91

     Short sword for me,been a short sword user from the start

  • AzuNo17

     Been using Short swords alongside a Gunner’s role. Buster Blading for easy breaks. Long sword’s melee are pretty awkard for my tastes. My eye’s are set on lances though. I’m hoping i’ll be able to do some atatataattataaata with that acclaimed piercing  powerhouse.

  • natchu96

    I’m a short sword-user/gunner, as they hit fast and get OP refilled, Impulse edges being useless and busters being to slow for me. Swiveling between this and Charge Spears, though. I guess I’ll have to see what else it does. I might miss even more using it if it only hits directly forward.

  • Shortsword/Assault combo for the whole GEB. I like that charge spear. I’m more of a Tatsumi style; Go in, ATTACK! ATTACK! ATTACK!

    • ARE YOU ME? *high five* XD

      In all honestly though, if you were good with the dodging, you didn’t need much else. I thought I maybe changed weapons types once the whole game 

  • Code

    I do think the fact you kind of carried an gigantic all-purpose jack knife was part of what made the original stand out owo;; But having more options is always a good idea; I’m curious though if they’ll make certain gun types only accessible to certain weapon types >3<;; 

  • imaguni

    These all look great and I do hope we see an overseas release but… I sense some unfortunate comparisons coming with one of the weapons…

  • now i won’t have to use my forever scorpion tail short sword
    (forgot the name)
    to poke aragamis. spear for the win! but uh, is it just me or the illustrated blood arts look a little exaggerating?

  • Spear and Hammer are awesome additions! The screenshots are looking great too! Hope we see an international release of this gem!

  • Karmina Cervantes

    Wooooow TTuTT  the weapons look much prettier now!!

  • Z3

    The fenrir branch looks bland IMO with those clothes

  • i am so getting that long sword and short sword skill buster sword porbably
