Sequel game gets simultaneous release in 2013 on PSP/Vita

Bandai Namco Games began streaming an introductory video for the God Eater 2 action-hunting video game on Wednesday. The video reveals that the game will be released simultaneously on both the PlayStion Vita and PlayStation Portable consoles. Previously, the game was only announced for the PSP.

The game has now been delayed to 2013 after originally having a release timeframe of 2012. The game will also feature cross-compatable functionality in the multiplayer mode between PSP and PS Vita versions. The game will also allow save data to be transferred between both versions.

The anime studio ufotable (The Garden of Sinners, Manabi Straight!) will produce the opening animation for the game. Takayuki Hirao, who directed the fifth episode of The Garden of Sinners, is helming the animation project. Singer yu-yu will sing the the theme song for the upcoming game.

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.

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.

The sequel will feature new weapons such as the boost hammer and charge spear, as well as new Aragami such as the Marduk.
