Namco Bandai Show Off God Eater 2 Weapons And Their New Skills In Action

By Sato . May 3, 2013 . 11:50am


The NicoNico Super Meeting 2 that took place last weekend was a packed event where countless celebrities and game developers got together to talk about their latest product. Among them was Namco Bandai, with a God Eater 2 presentation that showcased new weapons and abilities for their upcoming sequel.



At the 1:25 mark, the first footage depicts a player using the Sniper Rifle’s Stealth Field skill, which is used to hide your presence from the Aragami, giving more of a sniper feeling to the user. The footage also gives a glimpse of the tweaked aerial-stepping Short Blade.


The next footage (4:20 mark) is all about the Long Blade and its recently introduced Zero Stance skill. The Zero Stance skill is a technical ability that requires the use of action-cancels, such as jump-cancels, in order to keep it going. While active, the blade gains a bright blue glow, and it allows you to pull off infinite combos with enhanced power. However, failing to keep up the action-cancels or taking any damage will put an end to the flashy skill.



At 8:05 Namco Bandai talk about the Blast Gun’s new command, called the OP Reverse (R+O). This new ability allows you to transfer any reserved OP (Oracle Points) to inflict massive damage. Previously, you were only able to accumulate up to 100 OP, this number has been increased to 1,000. You can also split up the amount of OP used—for example, if you have 1,000 OP, you can now shoot two shots that use 500 OP each.


At the 11:10 mark, they give us a look at the Shotgun. The footage depicts the Shotgun’s high mobility, that goes with its powerful close-ranged attribute. In contrast to other guns, the shotgun does much more damage depending on how close you are to the target. The player then switches to the Boost Hammer, where he can be seen dashing his way around, while performing devastating blows to the Aragami.


Finally, we get a good look at the Charge Spear in action at the 14:02 mark. The player is seen working her way around Aragami while building up power for a Charge Spear glide attack. After switching to the Assault gun, she demonstrates the new Drawback Shot ability, which is used as a way to jump backwards while shooting.


God Eater 2 is slated for release on PSP and PlayStation Vita later this year.

  • I really want to play this

  • pimpalicious

    I hope it gets a US release.

  • ssj4jw

    If this get localized I will get a vita for it.

    • Sardorim

      If this is true than I will buy a Vita and buy another one for my baby brother so I can teach him how to kill Gods.

    • MyBodyIsReady

      Never played any of the God Eater games, are they any good? How do they compare to Soul Sacrifice & Monster Hunter? (Two games I find are pretty damn awesome)

      • yep Soul Sacrifice is nothing like Monster Hunter but i do hope it get localized by the same company so we can get all the dlc

      • xXDGFXx

        God Eaters is way closer to Monster Hunter so if you like the latter, you’ll most likely easily enjoy the former.

    • Vash bane

      only reason ill buy one :/

    • natchu96

      This, except I already owned one because of P4G and Soul Sacrifice. And Gravity Rush, kinda . . .

      But yeah, if this ever gets localized it will be awesome.

  • ZEROthefirst

    Release date already Namco!!! I’m waiting to import this and then hopefully buy the localized version sometime in the future.

  • Ivan Junior

    bamco better put online multiplayer in this game. I bought Vita because of this awesome god eater 2 o/

  • Lazulis

    I cry because I don’t have this awesome game in my hands.

  • Prinny Dood

    im pretty sure this is going to get localized after all we got the first one. if not at lease we’ll be getting other localized games

  • Demeanor

    So much wanntttttt I’m playing burst on my Vita these days and it’s awesome, can’t stand MH but loving GEB. Hope they localize soon!

  • Ferrick

    hmm now i can’t decide on whether to main as long blade or charge spear, and it seems that bullet customization is no longer there =/ (hopefully its still there, and i’m wrong)

    though first things first, it needs to be released at NA

  • Takui Nanao

    I loved god eater burst this is gonna be good, i just got platinum on soul sacrifice and ill tell you the game is not hard at all

  • Ni

    man, the LB is looking more sexy than never with this Zero Stance skill. Since LB is my favourite blade on GE and GEB i think i’l just stuck with her in GE2 after testing the new weapons

    • Abyan Haidar

      you know… when I just started to play… my first solo kongou was with LB…. it’s just unfortunate LB doesn’t have any pierce type…

      • Ni

        Well with sunder you can make kongou (and others) aragami fall in a “endless” combo if you hit the weak spot or after you break some part of them. In the case of kongou i just target to the tail and/or the face and I can stun him really easy. and when they fall i use square+square+square+r and square.loop

  • Asuna Ilano

    I’m shining my psp for this baby. and I’m planning to buy Vita to experience this game in that console.

  • Abyan Haidar

    Let’s stop a while I’m going out to get some life…

    Said no God Eater Player, ever….

    Buhbye social life.. I’m getting this shit matters not it will be localized or not…

  • Ni

    I’m thinking of buying two copies…one for my psp and the other for the vita that i don’t have yet

    • Asherisk

      Oh, cool. So we get a little experience handling the weapons before GE2. If the Dlc gets localized, then it’s certain we’ll be getting ge2.$

  • Asherisk

    I watched the whole thing xD, is the sign they held up at the end of the video a confirmation date of June, 6 for the new GEB DLC? I wondedr what the new DLC is gonna have? Maybe some elaboration to what happens to M.C within that 3 years time skip.

    I’m geeking out over this!!!!!!! XD

    • neogeno

      its the starting weapons of GE2

  • Damarius Wingfield

    I think I’m falling in love with those weapons?!!? WEAPON FETISH anyone?

  • BloodTorrent

    This looks so much better than the original. Always said this series had potential, good to see they’re doing a good job of it.
