'God Eater' Console Game Reveal Teased For TGS 2016; 'God Eater Online' Announced For Android, iOS
Hot off the heels of the recently launched "God Eater 2 Rage Burst," Bandai Namco is set to bring more exciting "God Eater" news at this year's Tokyo Game Show.
The Japanese publication has spoken with general producer Yusuke Tomizawa, general director Hiroshi Yoshimura, producer Kensho Monden, and Asobimo director Hiroo Hasegawa. According to them, "God Eater Online" will be a free-to-play mobile game, which entices more people to play.
Asobimo, the developer behind popular MMORPG game such as "Avabel Online," "Iruna Online" and "X-World," will be involved in the development of "God Eater Online."
Although the concept of levels in present, the growth system in the game will also rely on acquired skill points, which can be assigned to the desired parameters. Items will also affect a variety of actions, according to the developers.
The setting will be in the same timeline as the previous games, and will not be a parallel world. Each story mission can be played solo, and can take about ten minutes to complete.
No release dates were confirmed by the developers yet, but expect the game to come stateside soon.
Bandai Namco also confirmed that they are also working on a "God Eater" console title. Nothing was revealed about it during the interview, but one of the staff hinted a possible reveal at this year's Tokyo Game Show, which will happen on Sept. 17.
The "God Eater" series has kept a fairly large niche audience, and the jump to mobile and other consoles will definitely increase the fanbase even more. The recently released "God Eater 2 Rage Burst" was met with very positive reviews on Steam, with some calling it the best "Monster Hunter"-like game on PC.
Stay tuned for more "God Eater" news.
