While God Eater 3 got new information recently regarding new character Claire Victorious, that was not all that was shared. Bandai Namco also introduced several new mechanics, including Dives, Burst Arts, and Burst Art Effects. (Thanks, 4Gamer!)

The Dive is a new aerial maneuver that has the main character blocking, then immediately homing on any Aragami that are locked-on. It can be chained into Devours or other combos. You can also use it while not locked-on, which makes it an effective escape tactic, as the character goes in the direction they are facing.


Burst Arts

Burst Arts are new special moves only usable during a Burst. These Arts are customizable, allowing for up to three of them. Which move is used depends on whether you’re on the ground, in the air, or stepping.


Eg. Biting Edge

  • On ground: Dancing Dagger
  • In the air: Dive to Blue
  • Step: Angel Fall


Dancing Dagger

A slashing combo that looks like a dance, conducted after surrounding the blade with Oracle energy. Combos from ground Square-button attacks.


Dive to Fall

A cleaving attack from the air with a boosted range and damage thanks to Oracle energy.


Angel Fall

An arcing slash attack conducted after a Step. It’s done in the Biting Edge’s naginata form.


Storm of the Rising Moon

A Heavy Moon Burst Art that combos off Moonstorm. It essentially is Moonstorm with a larger reach and higher damage.


Twilight Moon

An airborne arcing attack where the Heavy Moon is extended mid-air and slammed into the ground.

A Step Burst Art where the character takes a step and a leap, then swings the Heavy Moon above themselves as a wide reaching attack that hits all directions.


Burst Art Effects

Apart from Burst Arts, Burst Art Effects can also be customized to give Burst Arts extra effects.


Eg. Biting Edge

On ground: Dancing Dagger – Crescent effect

In the air: Dive to Fall – Sky Pillar effect

Step: Angel Fall – Reppa effect


The BA Effects add a different extra effect to Burst Arts, as you can see below:
