|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.

Miscellaneous Gameplay Changes
- In-battle character faces no longer make different faces possibly due to the new graphic revamp (like the exhausted stamina face or incapacitated face)-- this change is present in all currently released versions of God Eater 2 including the trial versions.
