To commemorate the release of God Eater 2’s “Best” version (Japanese equivalent of greatest hits), Bandai Namco are giving away DLC that was previously only available through original soundtracks and books. 4Gamer shares a look at what this covers.

 

With the cheaper retail version of God Eater 2 headed to stores in Japan on July 10th, Bandai Namco will simultaneously release the free DLC pack. The pack features the following Long Blade, Blast Gun, and Tower Shield:

The free DLC pack also features Yuno Ashihara’s extra epsiode.

Upon completion, players can acquire the material to make a special link support device.

 

And finally, it also includes costumes of the Fenrir special forces unit, Blood. Using the hairstyles that were included in the Ver. 1.40 update, you can actually make identical clones of those characters.

    You know, originally I said that localizing God Eater 2 would be a little hard seeing how the first one didn’t sell “The Best” and there weren’t “Many” of it’s genre at the time.

    But know with all the games coming out that no one thought would be localized……It feels like the life of the party (GE2) is just missing :(

    • GigaGaia

      The first one did quite well actually, they’re just waiting for the complete version. Considering they’re planning more DLC for the second game, it’s gonna take longer.

      • Anesia Hunter

        okay… now this makes sense.

  • Bigabu Beaze

    And why do we need to know this?

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Because why not?

      • Jason Ryer

        Cause we will more then likely get the greatest hits game version.

        • decus

          Don’t think so. We’ll get a Burst-esque release if they plan on doing one–the “best” release just makes importing a better deal (to the point that importing a best release is sometimes cheaper than buying new when a western release rolls around) and is identical to what was already released. It doesn’t actually include any of the DLC, it’s just free now on the PSN. That’s a key difference in terms of “is it any easier to localize now”.

          Anyway, this news was mostly for importers who may or may not read japanese news sites or check their japanese PSN regularly.

    • Toybatsu

      I’d like to know this because I own the game and enjoy it.
      Speak for yourself.

  • persona_yuji

    Welp… so when are we to expect God Eater 2 Burst Harder?

  • Land of Green Pasture

    another one of my favourite game that haven’t seen the light of the west T-T

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Meanwhile, in the West…

    • dboyz

      Bonified……..

    • Kroz

      Amen

    • Matthew Leung

      I have a feeling that BandaiNamco dislike the west… unless anime supported.

    • Rinkawa Erion

      …cicadas sounds

  • ZnTxn

    I need that Julius costume.

  • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

    Never played God Eater before should I give it a try?

    • Rose Spinoza

      YES

    • Bluevirage

      The first was a treat for action game fans who like games in the vein of Monster Hunter. But that is doing God Eater a disservice; while the influence is obvious, God Eater is much faster paced and involves much more customization of weaponry than Monster Hunter.

      Think Monster Hunter on speed, cocaine, and heroin to get some idea of how trippy God Eater’s systems can be.

      It should be a fairly cheap title now to get for the PSP or even as a download for the Vita. I may buy it again just to get a digital version to put on my Vita, I had a LOT of fun playing it when I did.

      Still want that sequel released in the West though.

  • Lemski07

    gonna play again and finish this one up, after I beat ss delta.

  • Dkmariolink

    We are never getting this. Just Freedom Wars… Im starting to lose hope…

  • Anesia Hunter

    so many game announcements about games coming to the west and yet this one is still silent…

  • http://youtube.com/kuyamagix iKen

    Well, if they ever release this game to the West. I would help you kill the bandwidth for them DLC’s.

  • Raine

    Europe release when?

    • Code Name Crono

      But The Continent *hates* niche Japanese games!….

      ……Says every company that hates getting paid in Euros!

  • Armageddon

    nice cust…whoa under boob.
