The Garden of Sinners' Takayuki Hirao helms opening for November 14 Vita/PSP sequel

Namco Bandai Games began streaming the opening animation sequence for the God Eater 2 game on Sunday. The anime studio ufotable (The Garden of Sinners, Fate/Zero) produced the animation with director Takayuki Hirao (fifth volume in The Garden of Sinners).

Namco Bandai Games first unveiled the opening animation during a live-streamed "God Eater 2 Night" event on Sunday.

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.

Ufotable created an animated prologue for the first God Eater game and also produced the opening animation footage for God Eater Burst.

God Eater 2 will ship for PS Vita and PSP in Japan on November 14.
