CERGY-PONTOISE, FRANCE – 12 July 2010 – NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S. today unveiled more details about its forthcoming launch of God Eater in 2011. The title will debut on PSPTM (PlayStation ® Portable) in Europe as an enhanced edition of the game, entitled God Eater Burst, loaded with modifications, gameplay improvements and additional features.
The hard-hitting survival action title scored 34/40 in revered Japanese gaming publication Famitsu and went on to sell over half a million copies in under three weeks. In direct response to feedback from gamers, development team Project G.E. decided to go a step further and create an enhanced version of the game, God Eater Burst, and it is this ultimate version of an already incredible experience that European gamers will get their hands on in 2011.
God Eater Burst re-imagines the post-apocalyptic world with an original and dramatic story of human survival against overwhelming odds. The earth has been trashed by unpleasant mutant beasts known as Aragami and man’s only hope against them is the God Arc weapons and the God Eaters who wield them. Players will create their own hero and battle against many different types of these enemies, picking up items along the way to customize their weapons, guns, bullets and shields, boosting their strength and stamina in the massive scale fights.
The furious pace of the gameplay will send players hurtling through more than twice the number of missions in the original God Eater, demanding quick thinking for tactical shifts between weapons to slash, shoot and devour some seriously imposing enemies. Bullets can be customised to alter their strength, patterns and elemental type for wildly effective super attacks.
The original Prey Attack adds a new strategic level as players transform to Burst Mode, boosting their stats and special bullets to launch potent attacks. Players can hunt with AI controlled party members or join hunting parties with up to four players via Ad Hoc connection, or connect the PSPto a PlayStation ® 3 and play online using adhocParty in cooperative mode.
If you’ve ever wondered what a god tastes like, you won’t have to wait long to find out. More information about the enhanced content of God Eater Burst will be revealed in the coming months.
