Online multiplayer was only announced for the PlayStation Vita version. The game is also available for PSP. Altogether, God Eater 2 shipped 600,000 units in Japan.

    neat, I think devs are starting to figure out that we actually like to have online multiplayer in games like MH and GE. Sometimes our buddies are kinda far away lol

    • konsama

      It was really a bad idea to not add online to 3U, and of course i mean the 3DS one, not paying for an overpriced console to get online capability on it.

    • ishyg

      I agree with this. My senpai is from Shimane (yep, bet you haven’t heard of that prefecture), and he said he plays GE2 alone because he’s too far from his mates. So not all people in Japan can go and gather around in hot spots like that McDonalds near the Akiba Yodobashi Camera.

    • Jazlynn Lim

      Awesome, just what this game needed…now for story DLC and localisation!
      Hope I can transfer the english GEB save data…I don’t mind grinding my Blood Arts again (though that accursed Jigoku no Rasen will have to wait).

  • Epitome

    wow this game just got even better

  • benhofb

    Hmm. Maybe a pre-patched-for-online version will be localized then, ala-Valhalla Knights 3?

  • konsama

    Man this just got better, im totally going for this one as long it’s getting localized. Most of my friends live far away.

  • Kayseur

    Exactly what we needed before a western release, right?

    • RIGHT!

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Well, you usually need a localization before that :p

    • Ric Vazquez

      Exactly! Localization please!

  • RovCal

    wow i didt know there was no online. glad its coming now.

  • tubers

    Yup. Prepping for Western release >:)

  • d19xx

    I was just thinking how great Bamco has been this gen(except for DLC Racer). This news pretty much confirmed it.

  • Lemski07

    WOOOOOHOOOOO they know what I want, and I have the vita version also. time to troll online.

  • TheExile285

    Ohoho, sweet. Now we just need a localization.

    • Ric Vazquez


  • Renaldi Saputra

    oh Namdai, please don’t be stingy

  • Bobby Jennings

    Wow this is nice

  • ZnTxn


  • Lilith

    Now I’m not sure to wait for this or get Ragnarok Odyssey Ace…

    • Vash bane

      screw pick and chooses and lets just go both :p

  • MasterScrub


  • I knew it!

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Vita and money in hand, I am ready to buy this. Your move, Namco.

  • It’s almost as if I can feel the localization already lol

  • Ivan Junior


    Only thing I’ve ever wanted!!!!

  • InfectedAI

    That’s fantastic! This is one of the few games that makes me want a Vita, but without multiplayer it wasn’t really that appealing. Hopefully it gets localized.

  • Based Siliconera, always breaking the good news.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Localization announcement incoming. They’re implementing online for just this reason I bet. Will pick this and P4G up when they get the price down some, especially on those memory cards.

  • HatsyaSouji

    I bet they’re planning to release this to the West in full, compared to a simultaneous release and we all get the patches same as the Japanese.

  • Anthony Birken

    I busted nothing but sweat for this vita and money. Online multiplayer is so gonna kill ad hoc party.

  • Vash bane

    this is one of the main reasons I even bought a vita GE2

    but I cant help but feel a hint by this move its very similar to GE and GEB

  • Romancer Ecclesia

    For those wondering whether the game will be localized, here’s some news to tip the scales:

    Japanese Vita version has trophies displayed in English when you play it on your US PSN account.
