Bandai Namco recently released their 1.40 patch for God Eater 2 that brings online multiplayer to the game. Additionally, they announced a DLC side story that will have minor characters from the first God Eater game take center stage. Game-Jouhou shares more details and a trailer.

 

Dr. Sakaki seems to have noticed a group of Aragami and calls upon specific characters with the knowhow on taking them out. The members are familiar faces seen in the first game as minor characters, except this time, they’ll be more involved in the even that takes place three years later.

From left to right, we have: Karel Schneider, Gina Dickinson, Tatsumi O’Mori, Brendan Bardell, and Shun ogawa, who’ve been given the task to take out an irregular gathering of the Aragami. They will have their own growth charts as you take on various missions as part of the story.

The introduced characters and operators will also be available to use on God Eater 2’s multiplayer mode.

 

God Eater 2’s Another Episode: Return of the Defense Force side story DLC will launch on June 5, 2014 for 1,000 yen ($10) for PlayStation Vita and PSP.

    Amazing! I definitely liked these characters and I’m glad they’ll be back for GE2.

  • Ryujin

    Somehow, seeing new God Eater content always makes me really happy even if I don’t have GE2 yet. It’s nice to see returning characters like these get a place in the game as well.

      I agree wholeheartedly. I want to play this game and Burst again (on vita this time). But right now I doubt 2 will come outside of JPN, at least not until it’s fully upgraded like Burst was.

    • Ric Vazquez

      Agreed

  • Rose Spinoza

    B TEAM! I’M SO HAPPY TO SEE THEM AGAIN!
    Seriously, the fact that these “minor” characters had personalities both in and out of battle made them incredibly endearing to me. I was sad, previously, when I saw that only Kanon returned. (though Kanon is awesome too of course.)

    But now B-team* is back!

    *B-team is my personal nickname for them.

    EDIT- oops. I forgot to say the thing I say for every God Eater article. ENGLISH LOCALIZATION WHEEEEEEENN???? *ahem* Thank you. *bows*

    • Diarek

      I want to like Kanon, i really do, since only she and Sakuya are dedicated healer, and that reward bonus skill of her. But after the hundredth time she blasted my back when i trying to hack that Hannibal, i not so sure i even want her on my roster anymore

  • Aries_Atkasha

    “A special someone will appear as a guest operator (…)”

    • Fatalystic

  • Bigabu Beaze

    My fav sniper is BACK!

  • Kornelious

    Well, no one important here….JK it’s good to see some returning characters :D

    I would get the DLC anyway just for the adorable Urara <3

  • AnotherTime

    Gina, baby, I love you! I’m glad they brought her back, and the slightly less important guys.

  • Syaoranloh

    I thought they say ‘ There will be no paid dlc?’

    • 하세요

      From what I’ve researched, they only mentioned there would be free monthly DLC. Never did they say “No paid DLC.”

  • Kalis Konig

    Please announce this for the U.S. at E3. I want o buy a vita and this is the push I need.

  • izanagi

    I will murder anyone to get this game. #godeater for life

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    OH YEAH!! GINA IS BACK

  • Anthony Birken

    Awwww Yeah, Gina’s back!

  • .:Raphællius:.

    Now all that’s left is a NA/EU LOCALIZATION! And it better not be Digital only.

  • IsaacGravity

    It’s good to see Tatsumi, Brendan and Gina again. Could care less about the other two.

  • Vash bane

    I was always curious of how would they look years after (I…mistook shun for a male kanon first lol)

  • Ric Vazquez
