Announced some month back, more details for God Eater Online were revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2016. Not only is God Eater Online a full-fledged MMORPG for iOS and Android devices, but the story actually takes place “years after” God Eater 2 Rage Burst, which was launched in Japan last year for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4. The game is also co-developed with Japanese studio Asobimo.
Asobimo, if you did not know, is famous for its mobile action MMORPG, Avabel Online. Back to God Eater Online, what exactly makes it a true MMORPG? For each of the Aragami (the series antagonist) expeditions, up to 100 players can join up and fight together at the same time! Players will also get to nurture and upgrade their God Arcs to suit their own play style and to combat different Aragami.
Just to add on, the animated scenes found in the game are produced by Ufotable, a reputable animations studio which worked on anime series such as God Eater and Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works. God Eater Online will be released as a Free-to-Play mobile app in the near future, although there is no confirmation of an overseas launch outside of Japan. I am really hyped!
