Part of Fenrir fell and in God Eater 2 this is a new Aragami infested field called the Scarred Barricade. The ruined buildings were once Fenrir’s central building and residential areas. Now, Aragami roam in the area and players will fight in places where the Fenrir front line fell.

The weapon in the above screenshot is the Boost Hammer, a new Aragami killing weapon introduced in God Eater 2.

The Boost Hammer can be swung horizontally to increase the weapon’s range or you can crush enemies by swinging it vertically. Vertical swings deal more damage.

Pressing R + square charges up the hammer’s boost mode. After boost is activated you can do a Boost Rush to hit an enemy with a barrage of attacks by pressing square, this move consumes some stamina. Or you can press triangle to do a Boost Drive, a mid range attack where you crash into an enemy. Once you close in you can finish off with a Boost Impact, a powerful close range attack where you smash an enemy with a vertical crushing blow by pressing R + square.

Blood Arts are special moves in God Eater 2. The Boost Hammer has attacks like an upwards arcing swing and a shockwave that makes earth spew out of the ground.

Nana a food loving character with a cheerful personality is one of the Boost Hammer users in God Eater 2. She’s 17 years old and since she’s an orphan she doesn’t like to talk about her childhood.

Here’s a look at some of the Boost Hammers in the game.

        Vividred Operation

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      I’m pretty sure that exact hammer will be in the game, along with those clothes.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      Calling it now. There will be a Vividred Operation DLC.

    • Abyan Haidar

      yeah my first thought when I watched Aoi using it was “It’s Mothafuckin BOOST HAMMER!!”

  • StarWarudo

    I haven’t played the first one, but this looks like a fun game to get into. Glad it’s coming to the vita.

  • http://www.vizzed.com/boards/index.php?ref=106931 Ultrapieguy

    All of my yes. :D

  • http://twitter.com/Joe_Kata_T Joe T

    This and soul sacrifice are my most wanted Vita games. I hope Go Shiina is still doing the music for God Eater, the soundtrack for the first one was amazing!

    • fds_nextdart

      “No Way Back” + Combat against OP Aragamis was truly epic. My only concern is that this game may not make it to the West~.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    LOOKS STUNNING

  • Brimfyre

    To Sony and/or Namco, I will buy a Vita for this game if you bring it stateside. I doubt I am the only one.

    • MrRobbyM

      If I can get this and Demon’s Gaze, I’ll surely get a Vita too.

      • Spider-Man

        I want those two, plus Soul Sacrifice and Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus.

        • MrRobbyM

          Well Soul Sacrifice is a safe bet. I think it’s actually confirmed for a localization? *too lazy to check*

          Anyways, those two games AND a price drop would do it for me :P

          • Ferrick

            soul sacrifice already has a placeholder, so its in the safe zone atm, but here’s to hoping that they will bring GE2 to US like they did for GEBurst

    • Raltrios

      Yep. While P4G, Gravity Rush, and D4 are tempting, it’ll likely take either this, Demon Gaze, or Tales of Hearts R to purchase a Vita.

    • Peeka Chu

      I am sure that D3 (Namco’s subsidiary) will bring it over. Honestly, all I need on my Vita are MH type games with online MP. I never liked MH because of the unweildly combat, lack of story or the dinosaur theme; that’s just a personal preference. So I love games like this. I think that Demon’s Gaze is a safe bet from XSEED, Atlus or Aksys too (probably the latter two more than the former).

      Ragnarok Odyssey sounds like its getting a sequel too; or at least Gung Ho would “like” one, which is the first step really.

  • neogeno

    I can already tell that kongo hammer is going to be pretty strong.

  • shion16

    Hammers……finally!!!!

  • neogeno

    That first screenshot…is it like, an overworld screen or something? Maybe its just me but the character looks a bit large for his surroundings. Is the MC standing on a ledge?

    • Jazlynn Lim

      The MC’s standing on the ledge you spawn on when you start the mission.
      Or when you get incapped during the mission and your allies don’t get to you quickly enough.

      • neogeno

        Oh right I forgot you always start on a high ledge. I see, that makes sense now. Thanks.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    “IT’S HAMMER TIME!!!”

    *rim shot*

  • harmonyworld

    I wonder if there’ll be nice yuri moments in this one too~
    I really loved the burst, so I hope to be able to try this one out too!

  • Brandon001

    i wanted to buy the first one, but i found out it was crazy short, so i skipped it

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      What? Who told you that lie? You can easilly clock in the game +120 hours, and you still haven’t seen everything in the game yet.

      • Brandon001

        whaaaaaaaaat????

  • Curan_Altea

    Holy crap…. Nana is freaking adorable.

  • IsaacGravity

    …wait. It’s been a while since I played Burst but… weren’t we the front-line in the first game…?

    • Syn

      Yep, our home is gone buddy….*sheds tear* To be honest, they did say we where in a dire situation so, i guess being in one location that does not move while fighting an endless stream of turbo evolving monsters was bound to be overwhelming at some point.

      • IsaacGravity

        …True… I hope my PC survived somehow… Or at most went down like a true badass…

  • TatsuyaKyo

    H-how? What happened to the base we all used to return to and love? ;_;

    I want answers Bamco, and be quick about it.

    …That aside, it seems that Alisa has a new rival :p

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      Maybe they now live in the Moon?

      • TatsuyaKyo

        That’s possible, but that depends on how recent the destruction of the Eastern Fenrir branch was. But the question is, where would they find the materials required for building a spacecraft, much less have the time to do so?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      Maybe the interquel manga has some clues (eventually)? (Its not ending yet but the interquel manga has some interesting stuff in it. ANTI-GOD ARC-CHIYOU.)

      • TatsuyaKyo

        Are you talking about “The Summer Wars”, or a different one?

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

          http://media.animevice.com/uploads/0/4479/584619-god_eater_2nd_break_v_1.jpg
          Another one. GE2: the 2nd break. But you need to equip an ability call “Able to read chinese” to start the quest. Its set after Burst and before GE2.

          • TatsuyaKyo

            Chinese

            Aw, shucks. >_>

            Oh well. Guess I’ll have to make do with the gestures.

  • Elvick

    Any chance we’ll get this? How did the other games do?

  • Eileen Sy

    Happy to hear more GB2 news! I anticipate its localization.

  • Ganth King

    It would be more enjoyable if they fixed that rare items grinding problem the was in GEB. I was quite enjoyed GEB but thx to that grinding but no luck I didnt play it anymore after the final quest. Unlike MHP in which you will surely get rare items as you play.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Sadly that’s the nature of raid game here.T_T I mean even in Mon Hun, this case can happen. For example after hunting elder dragon Shen Gaoren like 5 times with my friends, i am unable to obtain the rare items from it which really breaks my heart.

      To add to the pain, all my other friends obtain that item like three of them??? Wat the hell.T_T

  • Kai M

    Can’t wait for this.

  • Brandon001

    yo konpon, so tell me, could you really clock in 120 hours in GeB? because if thats the case, i’ll gladly get it. The thing is ive heard otherwise, saying no more than 50 hours, so tell me, how much content is there for 120+ hours and still not seeing everything?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Well, actually the main reason why the hours can clock so high is simply because this is a raid game.

      If you notice, Monster Hunter can also easily clock 200+ hours if you wanted to collect all equipment, finish all quest and keep playing with your friends there.

      It is the type of game that is not created to end so early and the fans can keep coming back to the game again and again.

      • Brandon001

        thanks for the info man,

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          No problem here.^_^ Hope you will be able to enjoy this game here.^_^

          Who knows one day, we will be able to play this game together lol.

          • Brandon001

            about that, what ad-hoc? do i have to be near another GeB player to play co-op, or online?

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            I can not really remember but i only remember me and my friend playing the first one via wi-fi(closely to each other.)

            But for this new upcoming one, maybe they will include online?

  • Lester Paredes

    What’s this? A game people want? Well, I sure bet Sony’s not going to do anything to help bring it over. I’m sure Namco will just be fine with leaving this in Japan. Because both companies have shown soooooooo much vested interest in the success of the best little handheld gamers have been dreaming of since the Gameboy.

  • HassanJamal

    Oooh pretty. Those are vita screenshots right?

  • Abyan Haidar

    That Kongou Hammer looks awesome… Can’t wait for Dyaus Hammer (if it exist)

  • Rei Nitramier

    Good to see that the enhancement for the God Eaters still enable for stylishly revealing clothing without affecting defenses XD

    What I want to know is: Whatever happened to your character in GE1? You were the badass, stylish Aragami killing machine hero. If they go with the “died when Fenrir fell” story it will annoy me to no end.

    At least make the old save character loadable and top Fenrir God Eater one of the support NPCs selectable (like he/she was in another mission when crap hit the fan back at HQ). If “you” are stil the same guy in this new game as it starts then what…you got demoted and lost all your upgraded stuff?
