Once it was announced for PS4 I figured a localization would be an obvious thing. It doesn't look like Japan is at all interested in that version.

I wonder if they're going to keep calling it Gods Eater or revert back to the original title. I don't think anyone would have gotten angry about any potential blasphemy even back then.

I really can't see them only releasing the PS4 version here.
Theres been precedent (One Piece Warriors 2) before for Bamco games to not get released on Vita in the US when it was released in other regions. Wouldn't be that surprised if it came over as PS4 only.

How does this compare to Toukiden (Kiwami)?
Its different. As on top of the melee weapon you also have your gun mode. Though it is one of the other good hunting genre titles.

Example footage.

Toukiden is closer to Monster Hunter generally, than God Eater is.

It depends on what you like style wise too.

The most unique feature about the game would be the bullet crafting system, which allows you to create various shot types to use with your gun mode. Though will take a bit of advancing in the story and reading faqs to fully understand how to make the best use of it.

Older not great quality footage but gives you an idea of what can be made with the system. Though some things might have changed since this is GE:B footage and not GE:2

Very different. Toukiden is much more like Monster Hunter for its mechanics, whereas God Eater takes more cues from something like Kingdom Hearts, so while the combat isn't deep, there's a much stronger emphasis on mobility and being able to switch from melee to ranged at will.

I guess you could be right. SAO seemed to be quite successful so maybe they'll the the Vita more seriously now. It shouldn't really be that much more work to put a Vita version out, at least digitally.

Yeah, the PS4 version greatly improved the odds. Great to hear though! Hope it gets a 2015 release.

Please be on Vita as well.
It most likely will. Whether it's physical or digital only is probably the better question.

Still can't get excited about it after knowing that they re-used tracks from GEBurst but it was just a matter of time.
Will bother only if the Vita version is physical, but I'm not that worried about it, seeing what they've been doing lately it should be.

This pleases me greatly. Will preorder as soon as it goes live. God Eater 2 was awesome, now I won't need to import RB.

Seems like a non-critical point against enjoying an excellent expansion to an excellent game coming out on non-handhelds for the first time. D:

Sweet, that just leaves Digimon then.

I hope they don't end up calling it "Gods Eater" again though..

They re-used a lot of other things but it is a critical point when you listened to those tracks for 40 hours. I don't know how I'll be able to stomach them again.

And it still is and will look like a handheld game and, if anything, being on a handheld is a plus for a quest-based hunting game.

I was just talking to a gaffer about this game yesterday. I hope NA gets the vita version as well, thats the one I want. Are the games cross play in japan?

Oh thank goodness, if we get a retail US release for Vita, I can finally get rid of GE1 and save 1 GB.
GE1 has been in my backlog for so long :/

I've been waiting for the announcement of the PS4 version...so what are the requirements for getting into this series? Should you play a game before this one or..?
