A Taste Of What You’ll Get In The God Eater 2 Demo

By Sato . July 19, 2013 . 10:30am

As previously reported, the upcoming demo for God Eater 2 will feature some new Aragami and skills to test out in anticipation of the game’s release this November for PlayStation Vita and PSP. Famitsu.com gives us a closer look at what we’ll be seeing in the demo, along with a look at some new skills and characters.


Here’s a closer look at Aragami Garm and Ien Tsuii:




This wolf-type Aragami has a body that is covered in solid stone with its characteristic red hair. Contrary to its heavy appearance, Garm actually has an unbelievable sense of alertness and agility, and also boasts a powerful strike from its arms covered in solid rock, resembling a gauntlet.


Ien Tsuii


Not much has been revealed about this bird-like Aragami, however, it has been reported to have the ability to direct the hostility of all nearby Aragami towards a single God Eater.


God Eater 2 also feature special attacks called “Blood Arts” that evolve into stronger and cooler looking attacks the more they’re used by the player. While the demo version of the game will only contain a select amount of Blood Arts for each weapon, the full release will have over 200.


Here’s a look at some that will be available in the demo:


“Genocide Gear” (Long Blade)

“Crack Wave” (Buster Blade)

“Crimson Glide” (Charge Spear)

“Final Blow” (Boost Hammer)


Namco Bandai have also revealed a new character who goes by “Songstress,” and will be traveling with you and your group.




Yuno is a 17-year-old idol-like figure who is even well-known throughout the devastated world of God Eater 2. In order to promote the development of an independent settlement called “Satellite Base,” she has been cooperating with Fenrir’s publicity work, while traveling from city to city around the world.


Here’s a look at a few more key characters who’ll be part of the God Eater 2 adventures:


Ciel Alencon and Gilbert McLane

Nana Kazuki and Romeo Leoni


God Eater 2 is slated for release on November 14th for PlayStation Vita and PSP.

    This. I need this. And those new aragami look delicious…Although Yuno sort of reminded me of Sing Love for a second there…and she’s promoting the independent settlement, “Satellite Base”…interesting…

  • Curan_Altea

    This is shaping up to be great demo. Can’t wait to finally get my hands on it.
    And Ciel <3

    • XiaomuArisu

      See what you did there

      • Curan_Altea

        What’re you…. OH.
        I didn’t mean it that way >_<

        • TheExile285

          Yes you did :P

          • Curan_Altea

            I need to watch what I write more carefully….

          • アティ

            =D Maybe next time i should write them for you…

          • Curan_Altea

            O-of course!
            Why not….

        • XiaomuArisu

          search your feelings you know its true!!!

  • Bobby Jennings

    When does this demo come out again?

    • Curan_Altea

      July 25th I believe.

      • Bobby Jennings

        Ah, gotta switch accounts then! Thanks

        • Ene Iban

          for psp it’s august 1st

          • Bobby Jennings

            No access to PSP…

  • evilmoogle

    Yuno also appeared in the manga.

  • TheExile285

    My body needs to this game..

    • neogeno

      This is bad…The lack of a localization announcement has created a situation so critical that it is beginning to affect our speech patterns!


      • TheExile285

        Namco won’t do it but I have a little faith that D3 will bring it over. I’m thinking maybe a few months after they will announce it.

        I hope they are already working on it and GEB was free on PS Plus a few months ago to get more people interested in the series. We’ve gotten every hunter style game barring LoA so it would suck for this not to come over…

        • neogeno

          Oh I believe it will be localized as well. I just think that It’ll be some time after the Japan release. And that’s still pretty far off. GE was never released in the US and it was a while before GEB came out and got localized.

          If its going to be the same deal with GE2 then we could be in for a looong wait.

          • TheExile285

            Yeah, I’m hoping they don’t do a Burst for GE2 because the wait for that will be unbearable.

            I’d personally just rather they make DLC for whatever new content they want to release.

  • Ryujin

    YES. All of this looks just plain awesome.

    Oh, ye gods of gaming, please let them localize this game…

  • DivinePhoenix69

    I really hope this game gets released in the west. The US needs more God Eater. Namco pls..

    • TheExile285

      Namco won’t do it. Pled to D3 Publisher (they localized GEB).

      • Christopher Nunes

        I only thing I hate about D3 Publisher is that they never release ALL of the DLC content, I’m peeved that for White Knight Chronicles 2 they never released the Avatar Story DLC! I wanted to play that the most in WKC2!

        • TheExile285

          Which would you prefer?

          The localized with some or no DLC


          No Localization

          The thing I hate about Namco is that with some exceptions, they basically ignore handhelds in NA.

          • Christopher Nunes

            As much as I hate having no extra content I go with localization with some or no DLC.

            That’s one thing I hate about Namco as well… I’m still waiting for Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode for 3DS Namco!

          • deadMastershiro

            Thanks for promoting digimon.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Your welcome?

          • deadMastershiro

            Sorry about the confusion but i read your other post.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I know you were talking about my Digimon post, but I was little confused why you thanked me for it unless you know I signed a petition to get it localized that Haseo-san has been posting on GameFAQs.

            But it’s OK.

      • MasterScrub

        I dunno, Namco has been pretty good lately. If they were willing to bring over Project X Zone of all things, I’m sure with enough noise they’d localize GE2.

        • TheExile285

          Yeah, PxZ is an exception.

          There’s also these:

          No Pirate Warriors 2 Vita
          No Tales Vita Games
          No OP Romance Dawn or Unlimited Cruise for NA (EU got both)

          I have absolutely no faith in them

          • Christopher Nunes

            Why no Tales for Vita? The Vita NEEDS more games.

            And I want to play Hearts the most.

  • neogeno

    Ien Tsuii looks to be a cross breed between a Chi-You and a Sariel.
    While Garm in a cross breed between a Marduk and…a rock.

    I hope they have unique movesets.

    • Abyan Haidar

      and look at Ien Tsuii’s minions… The Ogretail must have liked Sariel so much…

    • Ryujin

      You pretty much nailed the description there.

      While I do like the Aragami they’ve shown here, I hope some of the other new additions are less of a “Oh, they’re kind of like Aragami X but with a bit more Y” and more like they’re their own thing.

  • gamefreak86

    Just started the first game when it became free on PS+. Will put more hours into it but its a solid and fun game. Granted I like MH more but def will pick up when it launches. Only thing that sucks is I dont know any RL friends with vita but thankfully Toro has made me enough vita friends.

  • Abyan Haidar

    Must… not…. not buy it…..
    must… create… PSN JAPANESE ACCOUNT!!!

  • Spider-Man

    Yuno will become a yandere.

  • DriftSlave

    :/ Needs more Alisa and Soma. I’m alittle sad that the previous Avatar is MIA.

    • Ferrick

      according to the manga, GEB MC is currently on a mission in a faraway region

      • DriftSlave

        Ahh I didn’t know the Manga was the tie-in with the games, I always thought that it was separate continuity~ good to know.

        • Ferrick

          for the most part, the manga is canonical, for now atleast, simply because its just before the game’s sequel begin and the fact that there’s too little chapters to say anything about it

          • Christopher Nunes

            For the most part? Is MC is more or less male official and him and Alisa are in a romantic relationship or at least Alisa is deeply interest in him.

            And the Beach manga is also canon in a way as the MC has the same name in both that and the GE2 manga and it’s by the same artist, no?

          • I think GE2 manga is a sequel from the beach manga, since if i’m not mistaken they did mention what happen in the beach manga in GE2 manga, and the mc got the same name too. Since GE2 manga is set before the event of GE2 it’s most probably a canon (which is great since there’s a little bit of romance between Alisa and the MC XD)

          • Christopher Nunes

            I thought so… kinda sucks there wasn’t any romance in the game at first.

            Also in Project X Zone any references to the First Unit Leader? I know it’s a player-created character, but it would be nice to have some acknowledgement.

          • Mugen555

            Lindow when paired with VC3 duo
            VC3 duo asked some advice as a leader. Lindow answer it with Player line “Don’t run away from living”

          • Christopher Nunes

            lol nice to know! ^_^

            Good enough for me.

          • That’s awesome XD I have PxZ, but still haven’t played it yet (want to finish SMT4 first)

    • Ni

      we are not MIA. we’re just with Lindow and tsubaki in a mission

    • Raze

      By Alisa you mean Kanon, right??RIGHT???

      • I liked Kanon, and despite playing as FeMC, I took her to a lot of missions. Also, dat friendly fire ;~;

      • Damarius Wingfield

        She’ll kill us ALL man!

  • Ni

    I got hit by my freind because I said the Blood Arts names as if it was a tales game lol
    And i’ll do this alot while playing GE2
    Genocide Gear!
    Crack Wave!
    Crimson Glide!
    FInal Blow!
    Edit: Ien Tsuii has the ‘I’M FROM CHI YU FAMILY’ all over her and reaally hate the Chi Yu family

    • Mugen555

      Actually, some of Blood Arts name comes from the fans.
      They holding a corner during some event to decide some of blood arts name with help of fans

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    I’d say to anyone who wants this game localized to the West, to pick up GEB off of PSN, like ASAP. If Namco wants to keep this mood of “guaging the audience” through sales, then I say give them what they want.

    Plus GEB with the twin sticks of the Vita is a freaking God send (same applies for any other action game that was available on the PSP).

    • More than a Godsend it’s heaven, though I must admit, GEB doesn’t scale as well on Vita. The assets are just too low res >< but it's such a good game that I can easily ignore that.

  • Prinny Dood

    Oh my god this looks so great my heads spinning I need to sit down and finish learning japanese × (

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I need a VITA, like, half a year ago.

  • Localization is a MUST

  • >Final Blow

    Welp, I know which weapon I’ll be starting off with then. Possibly my new main :3

    • Curan_Altea

      Hammers are lame :P

      • Curan-sama you’re so mean :<

        • Curan_Altea

          Sorry. I’m just a sword kind of guy.
          A hammer wielder would be appreciated though.

  • natchu96

    And of course Nana Kazuki gets the moe shot while everybody else’s picture is serious business.

    Aragami, beware of the moeblob with the gigantic rocket propelled hammer!

    . . . a localization would be nice, or I’d have to learn a fourth language . . .

  • RavenholtEX

    Nana Kazuki, huh? Who wants to bet she’s the character they made to have Nana Mizuki in the cast, and just didn’t get any more creative than that?

    • Ni

      i had the same thought

  • Vash bane

    cant wait to try this…. and so close to my b-day.. that make it even more the better

  • mike dickson

    i want this demo the game is calling out to me
    GAME : import me do it do it
    me : don’t worry i’ll do it in due time

    • Damarius Wingfield

      That bird-like aragami looks a fusion of two aragami that I know but forgot! It’s companions look like orgetail(which it may have converted, controlled, and or used as a sommon)! What do you think that the aragami may be fusing!

      • mike dickson

        that would be epic more challenge and more get rape missions

        • Damarius Wingfield

          *Nodes head like ninja*: mmmhmp!

  • ShadowDivz

    Charge spear looks fun. Il definitely try the demo.

  • Io

    Ien Tsuii looks like Chii Yuu’s and Sariel’s child x.x
