God Eater 3 officially announced


And Japan’s getting a smartphone game, Resonant Ops

The only experience I have with the God Eater series, other than admiring its character design, is that short lived anime series but the first two games have a ton of fans. Good thing too, as Bandai Namco announced a God Eater 3 was in the works. There are currently no release date or console details, but it’ll release worldwide. Here’s the plot synopsis:

Earth no longer resembles the home we know of now. The Aragami, terrifying beasts that live only to consume, are carving a path of destruction and misery wherever they are encountered. To combat this threat an elite group of heroes known as God Eaters are called upon to save humanity. God Eaters are individuals who have been bestowed upon them the ability to wield powerful new God Arcs, special weapons powered by Oracle Cells and the only known weapons capable of destroying the monstrous Aragami. However, another mission is coming into focus; something is happening to the God Eaters and the line between light and dark has never been so thin. It’s time to start breaking free from the cursed shackles that bind the souls of the God Eaters as the battle rages on around them.

Additionally, Japan is getting the free-to-play (with smaller in-game purchases) God Eater: Resonant Ops on mobile devices. It’s a turn-based RPG that seems pretty darn neat, and I hope comes Westward as well.
