God Eater 2’s 1.2 Update Detailed

By Eugene . January 20, 2014 . 5:30pm

With Christmas over, it’s time for the folks slaying Aragami to get back to business. God Eater 2’s v1.2 update will land January 21st. Players will get a new episode starring returning character Lindow Amamiya.

Also on offer is an entirely new subclass of monster species to slay, the Godspeeds or Blitz types. These subspecies will, no surprises, be endowed with much faster speeds than normal, such as the below Godspeed Hannibals. There will be several new missions added, featuring them.

You might want to know about the new “Enhance” Missions as well. These are missions with extra—though optional—requirements. Fulfil them, however, and it seems elemental effects will come into play and be empowered.



013 012

Alongside these missions come a bevy of extra new support skills, items, costumes and weapon crafting bits in a “New Year’s Pack”. The items don’t seem to need you to have to go on “Enhance” missions though.



014 015

016 018

Finally, update 1.1’s items are also fully unlocked now, including a bunch of brand new jet-black and super-badass looking weapons such as the Eclipse Katana Brute Howl or the Buster blade type Strong Saw Adam Break.

022 023

Alongside the cool stuff is news that Cores, Blood Arts and minor bugs are also being fixed or adjusted.


God Eater 2 is out now for Sony’s Vita and PSP.

    Lindow look is so badass. Can’t wait to play it.

    So good that we have a lot of hunting games for Vita till MonHun 4 releases( I hope).

  • Ryan Chiu

    Just announce a NA version already!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I hope so, but Namdai keep being evil for not localizing their niche series like this and Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode :(

      • UnderNight In-Seth

        Geez, give the guy a break. 200+ dislikes is excessive.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I don’t know what the hell is happening. I only tell the truth after all

          • You have angered the bot!

          • Renaldi Saputra

            it seems so..

            kay botters, come at me.. gimme more downvotes

    • Notquitesure?

      I can imagine that they’ll just wait for the release of a bunch of jap DLC, and when they release the western version it will have all those bits and pieces and i would hazard a guess they would slap ‘Burst’ onto it.

      • Vash bane

        and if it does localize I hope we also get the dlc as well because those new weps and outfits look awesome

  • ZnTxn

    Godspeed Hannibal? And here I thought those couldn’t be faster.

  • TheExile285

    Tomorrow? SWEET! I must get my hands on that Nana outfit. Ciel’s NY outfit is nice too. I hope Alisa has one.

    Also, the fact that they are unlocking everything from update 1.1 is great news. If they keep this trend, I’ll never have to worry about playing on a US PSN since none of these updates require PSN unlock keys like Soul Sacrifice. ^_^

    • Yeah, I’m so grateful for the way they’re going about adding things. Patches > DLC any day.

    • Vash bane

      unlock keys (this is my first time hearing about “keys” so forgive me lol)?

      • TheExile285

        With Soul Sacrifice, all the DLC was free but you couldn’t access it without going to PSN store and redeeming them. I call them unlock keys because the “DLC” that downloads was only 100KB and I suspect the DLC content was actually added in with the patches that were were released with the update.

        With GE2, you don’t have that with the Free DLC.

    • Anthony Birken

      You got the vita version right?

      • TheExile285


        • Anthony Birken


  • Ferrick

    would be kickass if we get to use hannibal lindow

  • Sweet! Now for that localization patch……. =^_^=

  • randominternetperson

    Sounds like we are getting God Eater 2 “G” in a free patch. Awesome.

  • Ferchenko


  • Raze

    New patch at 21?
    It’s already 21 here lol…

    Can’t really check it though….
    Still need to plat something first…

  • Arcana Drill

    Great! and i’m still awaiting patiently for a localization announcement :D


    *please come here* *please come here* * please come here* *please come here*

  • Jam Rules

    Patch is out now for those interested, came out earlier today.

    • TheExile285

      cool. thanks!

  • Furu Chi

    Stop teasing us Japan!!!!!! It’s tearing me apart!!!

    • TheExile285

      *Looks at English Trophy list*

      Yeah….. tease is a good word.

  • Lazulis

    Lindow got even cooler aaaaaaah. Man I want this game

  • I love the design of these weapons

  • I want to play it so bad, but… too many games, so little time!

  • Ryujin

    My jaw just about hit the floor, this update looks fantastic. o.O I already had a lot of respect for the people behind this game, but GE2 continues to look more and more badass the more I see of it.

  • MaximDualBlade

    God Eater 2 I’ll tell you what: I like ya, and I want ya. Now we can do it the easy way or we can do it the hard way… the choice is yours… I see that by not getting even a localization announcement, you are choosing the haard way :S

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Namco Bandai aren’t just brave to take a risk for localizing their niche games (I mean niche in US)

      • MaximDualBlade

        I don’t have any proof but I just know that they will localize GE2 with all the patches and dlc included sometime this year. I’m probably basing my assumption that we got god eater burst instead of god eater. And gaming has made me really patient, so I can wait for God Eater 2 burst. Because nothing will compare to waiting for KH3, FFVersus and The Last Guardian XD

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I hope so, but seeing the chance is only at Vita, and then seeing the kind-of-poor sales of the PSP one (also Vita is accused of going to dead in US), I think Namdai don’t want to go straightforward..

          Hopefully they aren’t just focus on Tales, DBZ, One Piece, Naruto, and Dark Souls (and any game they’re planning to bring now)..

          • MaximDualBlade

            The PSP version is no viable in the west anymore. Like Toukiden they will bring the Vita version only. I’m sure they will take a lot of time, but it will come overseas.
            They are even publishing Jojo’s All Star Battle and that is a niche game in the west(or maybe with a really non vocal fanbase).
            And in Namco Bandai defense, they have stepped it up in their localization efforts(day one confirmation for Zesteria localization, amazed me).

          • Renaldi Saputra

            Tales series has been being big since the GC one.
            And yes, JoJo is kinda niche also that Saint Seiya..
            Those 2 (JoJo & Saint Seiya) games are fighting one, aren’t they?

            IIRC fighting games don’t need much efforts of translating

          • MaximDualBlade

            Jojo does because of the names of the characters. My advice for God Eater is to expect it really late, time passes quickly for stuff you don’t expect, and maybe just maybe you could get a pleasant surprise, like getting it this year :)

  • Lemski07

    cry… cant understand a thing on the imported ps vita version sob.

    • TheExile285

      What exactly are you having trouble with?

    • British_Otaku

      People here and on GameFAQs probably wouldn’t have a problem helping out, this is a pretty mainstream Vita game to import if that makes sense, finding guides or people should be easy.

    • Lemski07

      I understand the items and quest (played geb masterfully to understand the menu even in jap) but, I really want to understand the conversations.

  • natchu96

    Our favorite Aragami-arm guy is back! The Ren-arm still looking boss. And he’s killing a Hannibal, oh the irony . . .

    So wait, is the gold arm he has with his white outfit just a metal gauntlet with a fake bracelet-shaped thing slapped on to make him look normal to newcomers, or what?

  • Rudy Soto

    Damnit, a patch featuring Lindow and Hannibals? This has GEB Protagonist written all over it. S/He is the one that dealt with them in the last game!

  • Anthony Birken

    At the verge of just giving in and buying this. NA would be nice, but I tire of waiting…(Ad hoc party is nice sometimes)
