Make it Ridge Racer 8 (Infinity)

Why would there be a Tekken 7 and an Ace Combat 7 if there wasn't going to be a new Ridge Racer 8.

Seriously, if this ends up being something else they must really hate us
Yeah, but this brings me to my next point...

At this point I'm more concerned with how they're planning on pulling it off. More people want GE 2. It'd be amazing if we could get both games at the same time, or one shortly after the other. But if they announce GE2 it means all this wait was..for what exactly? They had far better opportunities to announce GE2.
... right here. It's like I said, they had God Eater events. Not just in Japan but here as well. And at this point, I feel like if they do bring anything over it would be Resurrection. Even though the fan base is quite large, God Eater came out quite a while ago on the PSP. If they wanna gauge whether or not it is a viable option, they would most likely grab the translations done on the first game, slap them on Resurrection, leave the JP audio in, and do whatever little add-ons that are needed. They would then see just how many sales that gets, and maybe then they would bring GE2. If they haven't done it until now I can't imagine it being for anything else other than because they don't know if there is a market for the game. With this strategy they would cut costs by a lot.

I would prefer Resurrection myself. The series needs a fresh start in the west

I feel that a three day countdown is way too much for this, but whatever, I'm a believer for now.

In the get_data.php script referenced from the JS script there is this string: "The life garden flourishes in the sky". Does that mean anything?

EDIT: and I can no longer access that script. Welp. The only thing it contained was a JSON object whose only node (called "data") was equal to that string I mentioned above.

EDIT2: I should also point out that that string above is the Google Translate version of the original French string (my IP address is french so it probably served me the French version, but my browser is set to auto-translate pages to English), which I think translates more closely to "The garden of flowers lives in the sky".

EDIT3: I think "sky"(le ciel) in this sense could also be equivalent to "heaven".

I put enough time into the first game, I'd prefer the newer game (that's not a remaster) personally.

If this is actually GE I'll be solid on hunting games between this and Toukiden 2

For some reason, Eurogamer.pt thinks Bandai Namco is associated with Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final - http://www.eurogamer.pt/articles/2015-12-18-bandai-namco-vai-anunciar-novo-jogo-no-dia-21
It's weird reading stuff in your mother language after so long lol, and gaming news at that. But uhhhh... Nope. Not to mention this is definitely going to be an Atlus published game, the symbols on this website belong to PlayStation. SMT4F is on the 3DS.

Yes thank you, someone looked in the code! And to be quite honest, I don't know much of the plot for GE2, but I guess it COULD kind of be applied to GE1?

It's BandaiNamcoEU, but stupid countdowns like this usually only happen for Japanese games, so I'm guessing it's a game localization.

And thus, I'm crossing my fingers super hard for God Eater 2 + Resurrection + Off Shot
Bahahahahaha... especially the last one.

So this is some kind of build-up until they officially announce the God Eater games for western markets?

I mean, not a bad way to announce it but you could of announced the localization many times already :l. Now either feels too late and/or people aren't hyped after waiting so long.

If its the God Eater games, I will be surprised and look forward to them :).

If not, oh well, the games are stuck in Japan then.

Bandai Namco was the distributor of some thing for Spain (and maybe Portugal) like P4G
It's the only association eurogamer.pt can make, I think.
That makes sense, but something like that would be announced by Atlus first, and maybe then Bamco. The game isn't out until February for Japan, and if it is anything like the original, the localization is gonna take 6 months or more, which means we would only see it after August in the US
and God knows how long in EU

For the love of god, please let it be God Eater 2 already.


Hell, I'll take God Eater Resurrection at this point.

I'm on mobile and i've seen "le jardin fleurira.." but the screen size had cut the rest of the message. It translates to "The garden will bloom..", i'm gonna try to take a screenshot.

Hope it's a new Katamari.

I'm getting goosebumps all over. What a day.
This is the year of DREAMS MAN XD!

Wow, coming off of getting two great grades on finals and starting to enjoy my winter break, we are getting new of a KH3 trailer coming out today, playing as Cloud in Smash Brothers fighting Sonic the Hedgehog and now having God Eater join Digimon & SAO: Hollow Realization in Bamco's 2016 line up of games?!

What a time to be alive man :').
