Namco Bandai To Release First Three Chapters Of God Eater 2 As Free Demo

By Eugene . September 23, 2013 . 10:00am


Namco Bandai is gearing up for the upcoming November 14th release in Japan for God Eater 2, and to celebrate it’s giving up the first three chapters of its opening as a playable demo. Better yet, save data from the demo can be transferred over to the full game on release, reports Game Jouhou.



To be clear, this is different from the previous demo that’s already been released. Additionally, first press pre-orders for the game will also get a downloadable code for the Fenrir First Generation Uniform Pack to make their characters look hip and snazzy. The exact date for the demo’s release has yet to be announced.


God Eater 2 is set for a Japan release November 14 for both the PlayStation Portable and Vita.

    And it’s weird that they chose Kanon over Sakuya for the female costumes. lol

    • TheExile285

      Sakuya outfits everwhere would make it hard to concentrate on the game.

      • Raltrios

        Are you implying that the Alisa outfit isn’t capable of the same? :3

    • Guest

      Rindou will murder you.

    • Arcana Wiz

      cause Kanon in japan is much more popular? they love chicks with double personalities… didn’t i tell you get away of my line of fire!?

    • Sakota

      Only the middle two costumes are for your characters. The others is just the NPCs alternate costumes, and since it doesn’t seem like you can add Sakuya to your party anymore, we get Kanon (plus she was fairly popular among Japanese players)

  • Ivan Junior

    No online play confirmed yet? D*mn.

    • pure_white

      You can play online via Ad Hoc Party, both versions are compatibile.

      • InfectedAI

        That’s not really the same at all.

  • fyi1191

    A new Aragami (Spartacus) and Rindou.

    • TheExile285

      Why did I immediately think of SnK after seeing that new Aragami lol

    • Revorse

      Why is he alive?

      • Surgeon of Death

        Its the internet. Use it.


        i think someone skipped on burst or didn’t finished the game

        • Revorse

          I thought I did. Doesn’t the game end after beating that one guy’s father?

          • Ni ~UNREAL BLACK THINGS~

            In the first god eater yes. it ends (rank 6 missions). But in Burst the story continues (rank 7 up to 10)

    • DriftSlave


    • Syn

      Spartacus looks like a Hannibal re-skin, hmmm, hope we have tones more original aragami.

      • Mugen555

        If it’s act differently, i kinda fine.
        The guy looks more punch based attack compared to Hannibal and Caligula

        • exclaire

          how it can be like that? isn’t that god arc cannot be change @[email protected]?

    • Did lindow just colored his aragami’s arm lol

    • Mugen555

      It make me wonder,
      The 2nd Break manga mentioned that Lindow went to special mission along with Tsubaki and 1st squad Leader(Your character, in manga named Yuu Kanagi and have looks same as character in GE-GEB concept art).
      Will we getting Tsubaki and 1st squad Leader as NPC?

      • DyLaN

        That would be pretty cool.

        • Kamakuma

          Agreed if would be awesome to have our created char come back as a wise first class GE… WonderI we could ship then… ~,,~

  • pure_white

    I hoped that with TGS BamCo announced a wester release… but they didn’t T^T. Hope this will be localized soon. .__.

    • TheExile285

      Yeah same. Hopefully D3 will announce it after the Japanese release.

      • MyBodyIsReady

        I have a feeling this will get localized. America got God Eater Burst as a Playstation plus subscription. I like to think that was them giving Westerners a little taste of the franchise for future references

        • wat_wat

          That was kind of what I was thinking. We can only hope that was their intention. And if it does happen, it needs to have online play or it’s dead on arrival.

  • Brimfyre

    How well did the first one sell in the West? I got a Vita mostly in hopes the sequel comes over.

    I’m thinking since they gave the first one out for free on PS+ there has to be a reason. Those games usually seemed tied in to marketing releases, or drumming up interest in a franchise. GTA PSP came out same week as GTA V, Saints Row III was free right before IV came out, etc. Probably reaching for straws but I really want this damn game.

  • DriftSlave

    I hope North America gets a localization…I never appreciated the first gen costumes until just now(outside of Alisa and Soma, they always looked cool).

    • TheExile285

      w u no like soma and alissa’s outfits?

      • DriftSlave

        re-read what I said, I like both Soma and Alisa’s GE costumes, I didn’t care for Kota and Lindow’s much.

        • TheExile285

          ah my bad


    Speaking with the novices:
    don’t you dare bring kanon with you guys in a mission
    novices: why?
    Me: because she have a worst aim than Romeo
    novices: damn…

    edit: I also hope that i can transfer data from the first demo to this one…(30 hours in that thing)

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      You know what? I think I had very few misses today!

    • Mugen555

      Difference betweeen Romeo and Kanon is Romeo really miss his fire, while Kanon didn’t care about you in her line of fire

    • Herlo Rerelo

      and her name is Kanon lol

  • Wonder if my old demo data will xfer

  • o_O if they are promoting GE2 why did they show the picture of the chars from GE1?

  • Sweet!

  • tubers

    Hope the West could get the game. Better if it’s an updated version or something like Burst.

    I’m puking rainbow right naww
