God Eater 2 Players Show How To Use Blood Arts And Beat Down Vajra

By Sato . November 11, 2013 . 6:37pm


God Eater 2’s release is just around the corner in Japan and Namco Bandai has another celebrity showdown featuring Oriental Radio hosts Nakata and Fujimori, along with a crew of female Aragami slayers.



In our earlier report, we got a glimpse of God Eater 2’s enhanced character customization. The sequel has more hairstyles, accessories, and voice options. After a brief overview of the game, the God Eater 2 players show off their own characters at around 1:20 and we can see quite the variety.


Next up, Nakata gives us a look at the new weapons in God Eater 2 the Boost Hammer, Charge Hammer, and Shotgun. However, he himself will be using Short Blade and Blast Gun, as he prefers the melee weapon’s simplicity, and found a liking to the new and improved Blast Gun. Meanwhile, Fujimori picks the Charge Spear, along with a crew of Long Blade and Boost Hammer-wielding girls.


In the third part of the video (3:50 mark,) they shift the topic to the new Blood Arts skill system. According to Nakata, the God Eater 2 has a skill evolution feature that grows skills when you use them. This is an appealing part in the upcoming game—especially being able to see numbers going into the skills to unlock new abilities.


At 4:45 we get a look at a Boost Hammer’s Blood Art that shows the player continuously hop-attack in mid-air, which might be useful against flying foes.


Fujimori points out that in multiplayer, we will probably see a variety of unique characters, as players will have various preferred Blood Arts skills that they’ve honed.



We previously got a look at a few celebrities and God Eater fans go head-to-head in a time attack battle. This time, Nakata and Fujimori will be challenging each other, starting with Fujimori and his team of girls at 5:52.


The mission is to defeat the new wolf-type Aragami Vajra, which doesn’t start off in the best note, as Fujimori is seen being knocked out early in the fight. After a quick Link Burst to resuscitate him, and a power up they were able to get Vajra while it was eating. The fight ends smoothly, as they complete the mission in 6 minutes and 51 seconds.



Next up, is the confident Nakata, who is taking on the mission with his trusted NPC buddies at 7:13. He points out how well he can control his NPCs, which is one of the features that allows you to select certain approaches or strategies for your non-playable teammates.


After knocking down the beast, Nakata begins to use a Blood Art skill that is strong against Vajras, which he specifically prepared for the occasion. He impressively completes the mission in merely 4 minutes and 25 seconds. This shows that preparation and having the right Blood Arts can be a crucial factor in taking down tough foes in God Eater 2.


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

    Every time I see a God Eater 2 post I’m hoping for localization conformation. If it happens I will buy a vita for it.

    • Vash bane

      already bought one just for this … now to play the waiting game :D

  • tubers

    They still planning on releasing an updated demo?

    • TheExile285

      I think it comes out this week when the game launches.

      • SmileyMat

        Aw., i thought they were gonna release it days before the release. Oh well might as well play the extended demo before playing the full game ^^

      • tubers

        Thanks. I hope so.

  • Xaltmas

    A localization sure would be nice. Hell, I’ll settle for a digital only release

  • I wonder if mine will ship early

  • Anthony Birken


    and besides…..games this month are leaving me in debt…

  • Mugen555

    I want to point out some mistake
    The wolf aragami shown is actually Garm and the Aragami that they fight in the time attack is Vajra not Marduk.

    • Sato

      Ack, thanks for catching that! Fixing the post :)


    It’s not Marduk its Vajra in the time attack competition. And the wolf aragami is Garm (which is a joke in the demo) not Marduk.

    btw, I think that Vajra got a status boost the sequel. in GE2 demo he’s a pain with the cpu beign set to spam jump attacks and lightnings AOE.

    Just more two days…JUST MORE TWO DAYS.
