God Eater 2: Rage Burst And Resurrection Will Only Have English Voices For The West



Bandai Namco recently announced that God Eater Resurrection and God Eater 2: Rage Burst is headed westward, and PlayStation LifeStyle got a chance to chat with series producer Yusuke Tomizawa and director Hiroshi Yoshimura in the localization for the game.


First, they start out by talking about character creation and online modes within Resurrection.


PlayStation LifeStyle: After numerous teases, the next chapter in the God Eater series is headed West. Can you talk us through the character creation and online modes within Resurrection?


Yoshimura: Okay, so the characters you see are dressed in uniforms, and there many fun options that you can play around with online, there’s plenty of depth. You can change your eye color, skin color, hair, facial features — there’s quite a bit of variation. It’s not just visuals, either; you can also adjust the voices that will feature during the cutscenes, and this will allow players to really feel a part of the story.


Tomizawa: We also have the God Arc weapons in the game, so it’s not just visual, these changes also impact the gameplay while offering players deep customisation options. These will be divided into three groups: hammer/sword, guns for range attacks and a shield. During battle, players will be able to switch between all three in real time.


In terms of localization, will the game be fully localized or can we expect Japanese voice acting with English subtitles?


Yoshimura: All the Japanese voices will be localised into English, and you will have subtitles as well.


Will there be the option to still have Japanese voice with English subtitles?


Yoshimura: It’s just going to be pure English.


God Eater Resurrection and God Eater 2: Rage Burst will release in the west in summer 2016 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC. You can read more from the interview over at PlayStation LifeStyle.
