    It would be nice if they made a HD version for PS3. We could really use a game like this on PS3 right now~

    • Budgiecat

      yep. Too bad Japan is still stuck on handheld craze

        It’s not a bad thing. I like my Vita, personally, but I just wish we could get this on the PS3, even as an HD version since I enjoy my console more due to the controller and TV, haha.

          May happen if BamCo isn’t satisfied with the handheld sales.. or if they think it’s going to be a good investment..

          Kinda reminds me of Ragnarok Ace.. it’s gonna be for the PS3 and VITA (originally a VITA game)

    • Vernauth

      i hope so
      probably they will make it but the expansion one like ragnarok odessey ace.

      Would be cool; there really isn’t enough of the Hunting genre on the consoles. I loved Earth Seeker a ton; was really a fresh experience via console gaming.

    Will Asia region ever get the demo? I am still mad that there is no SS demo on Asia region.

    • EspadaKiller

      Luckily I’m using a US account for my Vita, I knew that using a South-East Asia (in my case, Singapore) account will be disadvantage to me when it comes to buying PS Vita games or downloading demos/apps. And I’m right lol.

    I’ll be interested to see which version sells more in Japan. Vita or PSP?

    As for the rest of the world, technically we got the director’s cut of the first game. Perhaps Namco is waiting for that version before deciding anything? I guess it goes without saying the Vita version is the only version we’ll be seeing if they decide to release it to boot.

    finally the game is coming along nicely :D

    this was announced sine 2011 :P

  • Eclipse

    Nice, I really like that whole bit about the play data.

    Heh, I guess I’ll be spending a ridiculous amount of time on this demo.


    so? GOD EATER 2 for october?? yeah :)

  • Laura

    Finally a demo!

  • Ivan Junior

    wtf is that song? it surely didn’t fit with the trailer/gameplay. Oh well, finally we’ll get a demo!

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    Finally! Customizable blade skills! My hype is really high for this!
    the new DLC for GEB with the Star dificult missions is one hell of BS (cocoon maidens that one shot kill you and have a insanely amount of HP) but I liked it :3
