Namco Bandai Games began streaming an introductory video for the "character episode" of Alisa Amiella (Maaya Sakamoto) in the God Eater 2 game. The 18-year-old Alisa is a returning character from the 2010 Gods Eater Burst PlayStation Portable game.
The character episodes are secondary quests, separate from the main story, that depict the backgrounds of various characters and helps develop them.
The story of God Eater 2 is set in 2074, three years after the events of the original game. The world is still threatened by the mysterious living entities known as "Aragami." The sequel's protagonist is a "next-generation God Eater" fighting against the Aragami; he (or she, depending on the character creation process) is a member of the Fenrir organization's special forces unit Blood (Buraddo) who just arrived in the Far East sector. A mysterious red rain has begun fall in this area filled with more ferocious forms of Aragami and humans suffering from an incurable ailment.
God Eater 2 will be first full sequel to the original 2010 game that sold more than 600,000 copies. (The God Eater Burst update shipped in October 2010 and brought the franchise sales total to more than 1.1 million.) D3 Publisher released God Eater Burst in English on the PSP in March 2011.
God Eater 2 will ship in Japan on November 14.
