This Lovely Lady Will Provide You With Information In God Eater 2

By Eugene . October 23, 2013 . 1:35pm

God Eater 2 is delving into characters that players will interact with during the course of the game this week, including your pals in the Blood special forces. But before we get into that, here, have a pic of Alisa after she’s fallen down.

 

(OK, moving on.)

 

 

First up is Dr. Leah Claudius, a cool and composed lady who’s the Chief Development Officer that helped create God Arc Soldier tech. She works alongside the wheelchair-bound but equally brilliant Dr. Rachel, who’s the one who actually founded the special forces team Blood that players are a part of. Dr Rachel’s the Chief Supervisor of Fenrir’s Friar Branch Aragami Technology department, no mean feat. These two ladies will be the ones backing you up both during and between battles with information.

 

Also shown were examples of the special character episodes which players will need to do (they’re technically side-missions, but they unlock new Blood Arts). It seems they’re short vignettes that help advance relations and explore the back-stories of each character more.

Gilbert:

Gilbert proves surprisingly handy and well-versed despite his gruff and uncaring exterior when asked to handle some raw materials used in research. As you can see in the last pic, it looks like a Blood Art was obtained too.

Alisa:

Alisa begins questioning if it’s possible for others to unleash Blood Arts.

 

 

Rika:

Even the maintenance chick gets her events! Rika’s the mechanic in charge of maintaining all the God equipment lying around after battle. Do well with her event and you’ll be able to unlock the Link Support Device.

 

004

Finally, a new big bad Aragami to hunt has been revealed—Kabbalah Kabbalah.

001 005

This tricky lava Aragami will practically force players to dance to its tune, with a special oscillation pulse ability that forces your weapons to follow along with the tunes. You’ll need to wait carefully and time your attacks when it’s not dancing—usually after it’s unleashed its huge lightning warhead attack. Watch out for its tricky jumping patterns too, it’ll jump around randomly before suddenly zooming in on your location.

 

God Eater 2 will be out on PSP and Vita November 14th in Japan.

    Rika:

    Even the maintenance chick gets her events! Rika’s the mechanic in charge of maintaining all the God equipment lying around after battle. Do well with her event and you’ll be able to unlock the Link Support Device.

    JFYI, it’s Licca, not Rika

    • MXC

      Rika is the romanji version of her name. The GEB had her name as Licca because that’s what D3 translated it to which isn’t exactly wrong or right due to there not being an La,Li, Lo, Lu, Le sounding character in Japanese. Instead they use Ra, Ri, Ro, Ru, Re.

      • Christopher Nunes

        Though in your opinion do you like Licca or Rika better?

        I prefer Licca over Rika, it’s more original for a person’s name.

        • MXC

          Due to being familiar with when Japanese names are Japanese or attempted to be said in japanese, I tend to like better which one was intended. For example, in Japanese the name Liz is リズ(Rizu). In which case I prefer Liz. Japanese games tend to have romanji versions of names nowadays due to popularity in recent years.

          So in this case, if I had encountered or known that Licca’s name was リッカ, I would have preferred Rika. Since I played God Eater Burst English Ver. first, it would feel weird to see Rika now. For me it’s not about originality, it’s about which was intended.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I see.

    I absolutely love the characters in the God Eater series. Their designs are very beautiful. Both male and female alike. Really hoping for a localization announement soon. =^_^=

    P.S. Thanks for the Alisa pic :3

    • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

      The real question is… is this like Persona where you MC can develop social links? Really wanna social link with Dr Leah Claudis.

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        She’s very pretty, but Dr. Rachel is too cute to resist :3

        • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

          Is there any info on social links? Guess we’ll have to wait a few weeks to find out ;3

          • Ferrick

            according to latest trailer, you get some sort of support skill with them

  • ReidHershel

    I am buying a Vita just for this game TT~TT

    • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

      Good man lol =)

    • Anthony Birken

      I’m proud of you vita supporter~ hopefully I’ll see you on Ad Hoc~

      • InfectedAI

        So this one won’t have online multiplayer either?

        • Anthony Birken

          I can’t say for sure, but I don’t believe they made any mention of it. As of right now, sadly no.

  • Arcana Wiz

    Ehh, she is hot…. but i dont see her as a lovely person, by her face i think that she is more a person who enjoys making persons suffer than being lovely to them (A sadist).

    ワイフ エクス−プロシオン!!!

  • Arcana Wiz

    Sorry for the double post… but Kanon is getting a event to? i mean she is one of the better characters of the game….
    Didn’t i told you to get out from my line of fire!? Again, and again, and again…

    More of Alisa goodness!!

  • Yan Zhao

    Need moar Alisa pics.

  • Lemski07

    releasse date pleasse

  • Christopher Nunes

    Any news of the GE1 MC ever showing up in GE2 or mentioned more? I like to think the Save Data from GEB will serve as having that character return one way or another like an AI partner (like with .hack//IMOQ’s Save Data affecting Azure Kite’s name in .hack//GU where he becomes an NPC partner to recruit… and seeing both franchise is from the same company).

    Anyway these new characters are interesting, though I wouldn’t call Dr. Claudius a lovely lady with an expression like that. And hearing about Licca getting a Character Event as well to explore her backstory is awesome!

    In GE1 my Protagonist is male and part of my ideal character and in GE2 it will be female this time around to serve as GE1′s Protagonist’s little sister. Can’t wait for this game, but I hope they announce a localization of it in the future.

    • DyLaN

      The OP image of her isn’t helping lol. Though her character art is rather nice.

      • Christopher Nunes

        That I agree.

        When’s this game coming out again in Japanese?

  • natchu96

    Considering the aragami they seemingly decided to skin this Kabbalah Kabbalah after, I find it amusing that the name is kind of a Gboro Gboro pun.

    • Tincho Kudos

      How so?

  • DyLaN

    Tht image of Leah frm the OP had me convinced tht she have 60-80% chance to be the antagonists and might be a bit crazy. But I like their character art.

  • Dagobert

    Anyone know who the character artist of God Eater 2 is?

  • Raltrios

    I like the characters, but goddammit I don’t want more palette-swap Aragami!

  • Sardorim

    Alisa. Don’t worry, time apart will only make the heart grow stronger! This is only temporarily. Your GE1 MC will soon return to you as your Prince!

    • Christopher Nunes

      Assuming the players make a Male Protagonist, likewise if it’s Female… no such luck for Alisa in the romance department but hey! She’s a got a best friend that understands her and stands by her through thick and thin in exchange.

      • ShadowDivz

        Yeah.. .But they don’t experiement or explore each others bodies…. THERE ARE ENOUGH FRIENDSHIPS IN ANIME! TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

        • Christopher Nunes

          I prefer straight pairings, thank you, but I don’t mind a little yuri now and again. >>

          Though don’t fans pair Soma with the FeMC instead? Poor Kota… he never gets the love.

          PS: Your Avatar (of Yagyuu) truly strengths your comment even more. Especially the nosebleed.

          • ShadowDivz

            Thx.

            But fans always pair the angry badass with the FeMC.

            *Cough*persona3shinji*cough*

          • Christopher Nunes

            lol… that’s why I suggested Kota (that is his name, right? The “senior” God Eater that enter at the same time as your character but only by a few minutes?).

            Well I’m curious what role the GE2 Protagonist will play and their relationship with the GE1 and GE2 cast.

          • ShadowDivz

            Yeah. But are there gender specific scenes?

            I think his name is spelled Kouta. But who cares?

          • Christopher Nunes

            Ah, I was off by a letter.

            Gender specific scenes? Were they any in GEB? I only played Male MC but it would be cool to see the Female MC has some alter scenes in it. Hopefully GE2 does that.

            Really hope this gets localized, but I’m wary of D3 publishing it… I can’t believe they NEVER released the Avatar Story DLC for WKC2 (and online servers went down as of this summer which is sad as I never got to play online again) which gave the player created hero their own story.

            I honestly don’t get that company. >_>;

          • ShadowDivz

            I dont recall any, but ti would be a good addition.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I see, will hopefully GE2 does that. It would be great to see how the person’s gender would change what other characters said or do, just the little details like this makes a game more unique and a good way to increase replay value.

            By the way… you plan on picking up Senran Kagura Burst when it gets released in the US? Yagyuu going to be your main?

          • ShadowDivz

            I dunno maybe. I have shinovi versus, and it’s pretty awesome. I might, just buy Burst to show that there’s an interest and hopefully versus gets localized.

            So many games, so little time.

          • Christopher Nunes

            “So many games, so little time.”

            I hear ya, I so hear ya. Will I hope Shinovi Versus gets localized as well, I like Dynasty Warriors and its gameplay, and the cast seem really interesting.

            If not I could import the game, but I would very much like to play it in my language so I know what the characters are saying.

          • ShadowDivz

            There’s a translation faq on gamefaqs.
            So you can understand the story for the first 3 which is nice.

            But it’s kind of a pain in the ass to glance at your screen everytime. Also, small character dialogue isn’t translated and i want t know what they say.

          • Christopher Nunes

            So the story is translated, three out of the four there? Or is there more than 4 stories?

            And, yeah, I would like to know what the small character dialogue is saying too.

          • ShadowDivz

            Well, i haven’t checked it recently. But Miyabi’s group,Yumi’s group and Asuka’s group stories are translated.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Homura’s group’s story hasn’t been translated yet? Odd… considering they’re returning characters and people would want to know what is going on with them after Burst.

  • leingod

    Will she be able to provide lovely information in english?

  • EQeE

    I already mentioned it, but dat redheaded girl is so fucking hot.
