God Eater 2 Game Officially Announced for PSP
posted on by Egan Loo
Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu magazine is officially announcing Namco Bandai Games' tentatively named God Eater 2 action/hunting game for the PSP portable platform on Thursday. The 2012 game will be first full sequel to the original 2010 game which sold over 600,000 copies. (The God Eater Burst update shipped last October and brought the franchise sales total to over 1.1 million.)
The story 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.
The sequel will feature new weapons such as the boost hammer and charge spear, as well as new Aragami such as the Marduk.
