The sci-fi action JRPG where tiny anime fighters slice up giant monsters is coming back for a third game.
Bandai Namco released a teaser trailer for the game earlier today that shows God Eater 3’s likely hero breaking free of some futuristic handcuffs in order to go pummel some Aragami, the series’ main antagonists. There’s even some brief glimpses of how the game will play:
So what’s the game about? According to the press release God Eater 3 will follow the pattern of past games,
“Team up with your other God Eaters to take down monstrous new Aragami that are tearing apart locations around the globe. But this won’t be your only mission, something is happening to the God Eaters and the line between dark and light has never been so thin… It’s time to start breaking free from the cursed shackles that bind the soul of the God Eaters while the battle will rush as never before…”
A new God Eater project was first revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2016, where series producer Yusuke Tomizawa was wearing a God Eater 3 t-shirt, making the game all but officially announced until now. The first game was released on the PSP in 2010, but was later ported to PS4, Vita, and PC in the form of a remake called God Eater Resurrection just last year.
Though Bandai Namco didn’t list specific platforms for the upcoming game, the press release does state God Eater 3 is being developed for the “home console.”
