God Eater 2

Bandai Namco has announced a new downloadable episode for God Eater 2 on PS Vita and PSP. Dubbed God Eater 2: Another Episode: Return of the Defense Unit, it sees characters from the original game’s eponymous Defense Unit making a return in the episode older and wiser.

Featuring returning faces including Karel Schneider, Tatsumi O’Mori, Gina Dickinson, Brendan Bardell, and Shun Ogawa, Return of the Defense Unit has the characters reentering the fold three years older sporting new character designs. Additionally, their God Arcs are said to have been updated and each of them has also received newly recorded lines of voiced dialog.

A handful of new faces are also said to be joining the game as well, consisting of the series’ first male operator, Teruomi Shinkabe (voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki) and Ulala Hoshino (voiced by Haruka Terui). Beating the downloadable episode will not only unlock them for use in the main game, but also trigger what’s only being described for the time being as “the appearance of a special character as an operator.”

Multiplayer functionality is also included as part of the add-on. If the host of a multiplayer game has the content on their system, players can bring in members of the Defense Unit as non-player characters, as well as utilize the previously mentioned new operators. Doing so requires that all players have the version 1.40 update installed, which is free.

God Eater 2: Another Episode: Return of the Defense Unit will be available to download from PlayStation Network for both PS Vita and PSP at a price of 1,000 yen on June 5. Watch the trailer for it below.

Thanks, Game no Hanashi.

    slightly disappointed

    • DrForbidden

      That we’re still not getting a localised version?

      • Zeongundam

        Don’t remind me :(

      • LordKaiser

        Depends who will localize it also. Pray that is Bamco so you receive fast and full support unlike D3P.

        • Elvick

          Ugh, D3P is the worst.

          • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

            At least they brought the game over but yeah they are Namco =/

            • Elvick

              I know they are, but their long term support is shit. So there’s no point.

        • 永次

          D3P is Namco.

          • LordKaiser

            Just a subsidiary that handles stuff like crap. The American division should be dissolved. Bad localizations all around the place and sluggish to none support.

            • 永次

              D3P is a “subsidiary that handles stuff like crap” in USA, in Japan is a subsidiary of Namco which develops and publish niche games like Oneechanbara, Bullet Girls or Chikyuu bouei gun.

      Because is not free?

      • Luna Kazemaru

        pretty much since it was said there would be no paid dlc but knowing me i might suck it up for this one since i actually like 2 of the characters in the defense unit

          For what it’s worth, the official Japanese terminology refers to it as an “append package.” I referred to it as DLC in the article because that’s what it smells like to me, but at least marketing wise, they’re not directly using that term in Japanese.

        • Nitraion

          Yeah i don’t really follow God eater news…
          but i still remember they stated like that..
          its pretty much like TK with their DOA 5 paid chara DLC…
          If news about something being free i will remember for the rest of my life LOL
