God Eater 2 (ゴッドイーター2) is the sequel to God Eater Burst. It has been announced that it will be a simultaneous PSP and HD Vita release, and is scheduled to be released in 2013. D3Publisher has not made any announcement on plans of localization as of yet.
The game takes place 3 years after the original. A new fatal pandemic, the "Black Plague" (黑蛛病) which has no known cure and is caused by coming into contact with "Red Rain" has struck the Far East Branch. Members of Special Forces "Blood", an affiliate of Fenrir who reside in a mobile base, are sent to investigate. In addition to the current fields, places outside of the Far East Branch will be visited.
New Weapons & MechanicsEdit
|Guns that specialise in Scatter bullets. Average firing rate, allows Rush Fire (R+Circle), which does a quick rush forward, which you can chain into a shot.|
|Blades that specialise in Crush. Slow attack rate, allows Charge Stance (R+ Square), which opens up the rocket vent for boosted combos.|
|Blades that specialise in Pierce. Fast attack rate, allows Charge Glide, which does extreme damage, as well as cancels into an evasive backflip anytime during a ground combo and while guarding.|
|The evolution of blade attacks, which add additional effects to all manner of blade attacks (basic combos, aerial attacks, Impulse Edge, charged attacks etc.). Most are gained through natural usage of equipment, while some require specific missions to unlock them.|
|Allows you to share status bars with a teammate (namely, the OP bar), enabling one to go full gun in battle. It's hinted that this could pave the way for even higher OP consuming bullets/recipes.
As the Engagement System has not made any appearance since its introduction, its inclusion in the game is now unconfirmed.

|Burst was the result of us taking in all the feedback we received from gamers about the original GE and trying to make the first game as complete a package as possible.
With GE2, we're trying to pinpoint what users found fun about the game; we're taking it apart and reassembling it from scratch.
The GE series is about high-speed action and a story that makes you the hero.
The way those two aspects combine is what I think makes the game appealing to users, and to start out, we're going to make both aspects stronger in GE2.
