Okay did…did anyone not see this coming?
I mean don’t get me wrong, I freaking love God Eater, it’s just…it’s a raid game, and they always come in at least two’s. Rage Burst appears to be an enhanced port-quel of God Eater 2, and some exciting news revealed is that bringing the franchise to the Playstation 4 will allow them to continue the series and explore new concepts with it. I know, I know, we normally get upset when a PS Vita exclusive goes PS4, but this is waaaaay different than the Tearaway kick in the sack we got; the enhanced content is coming to the Vita as well, and we can assume Cross Play and Cross Save will be in the mix. Plus, this will actually encourage even more people to buy the Vita; the whole point of raid games is to play with your friends, and online play is nice but nothing beats joining up with your crew in person and playing together.
That, and playing a raid game on the go where you can bust out a few missions on break or on the train or whatever you ride places will be a great boon as well.
Lastly, if Namco Bandai hasn’t already broken up with us again, this is a pretty decent indicator that D3 might bring the game to America; last time we got a God Eater over here it was only after the Burst edition came out. Also, real quick, Japanese trailers, can we STOP COVERING UP ALL OF THE GAMEPLAY WITH REALLY BIG WORDS!?!?!?!?!
I mean, I know that’s kinda your thing, but it’s just…the worst.
