God Eater 3 Game's Opening Anime by ufotable Previewed in Sneak Peek Video

posted on by Egan Loo
New demo in PS Store Japan before game launches on December 13 in Japan, in early 2019 in N. America

Bandai Namco Entertainment presented a sneak peek at the opening animation for its God Eater 3 game at its Tokyo Game Show booth on Saturday. The company announced that the anime studio ufotable is returning to animate the opening sequence.

Bandai Namco Entertainment also announced during a special stage event on Saturday that an action demo will be available in the PlayStation Store in Japan for a limited time soon. The demo will be similar to the demo that Bandai Namco Entertainment is presenting at Tokyo Game Show this week.

Bandai Namco Entertainment describes God Eater 3:

Earth no longer resembles the home we know of now. The Aragami, terrifying beasts that live only to consume, are carving a path of destruction and misery wherever they are encountered. To combat this threat an elite group of heroes known as God Eaters are called upon to save humanity. God Eaters are individuals who have been bestowed upon them the ability to wield powerful new God Arcs, special weapons powered by Oracle Cells and the only known weapons capable of destroying the monstrous Aragami. However, another mission is coming into focus; something is happening to the God Eaters and the line between light and dark has never been so thin. It's time to start breaking free from the cursed shackles that bind the souls of the God Eaters as the battle rages on around them.

The game will debut in Japan on December 13, and then it will be available in North America in early 2019. The game will be on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. It will feature the new character, Yūgo Pennywort (voiced by Tomokazu Seki).

The God Eater game franchise inspired a 13-episode television anime series in 2015. Aniplex of America released the anime with an English dub on Blu-ray Disc in two sets in November 2016 and January 2017. The ufotable studio has animated in-game footage, particularly the opening sequences, in previous entries of the franchise.
