Now that Monster Hunter 4’s been out for a while, it’s PlayStation Vita owners’ turn to get their share of hunting action, once God Eater 2 comes out later this month. Namco Bandai recently uploaded a new trailer showing off the game’s new features in anticipation of its release.
The trailer starts out a with little note about the God Eater franchise having sold over 1.3 million copies thus far. We then get a look at some of the new Aragami we’ll be seeing in the post-apocalyptic world of God Eater 2.
Next, they give us a glimpse of the new Blood Arts skill system, which increases in level the more times you use it. There will be over 300 skills total, and you’ll get to mix and match them to your liking.
Namco Bandai also show some of the enhanced character customization we’ll be seeing in the game, which lets you pick out of many hairstyles, accessories, hair and skin colors, and also voices.
In multiplayer, you’ll be able to use the Link Burst ability to power-up your allies, and the Link Aid to share some of your health to recover the fallen. The Link Support system allows you to select various supports prior to the start of a mission.
After playing with another player, you’ll get to exchange cards, then use each other’s characters as NPCs when you play solo.
At around 2:55, the trailer gives us a look at some of the story mode in God Eater 2, where you’ll get to develop bonds and friendships between various characters. We also get a look at some of the new characters who’ll be playing a role in the main scenario.
Finally, the trailer ends with a look at a special character set and Fenrir outfits, that will be available for early print copies and preorders of the game. Namco Bandai also announced that God Eater 2 will continue to receive free monthly DLC post launch.
God Eater 2 will be coming out on November 14, for PlayStation Vita and PSP.
