God Eater 2, Gundam Vs. coming to North America from Bandai Namco

Publisher Bandai Namco announced its next slate of console releases arriving stateside in 2016, revealing upcoming localizations for Tales of Berseria, God Eater 2 and more.

Bandai Namco’s 2016 schedule also includes license-based highlights like Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Force and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, among other major titles slated for release in North America throughout next year.

A recently concluded countdown at a promotional website for a “mysterious game” revealed itself as a teaser for the upcoming worldwide launch of God Eater 2: Rage Burst and God Eater: Resurrection. The dual release will mark a second attempt at marketing the series stateside, following up on the domestic 2011 launch of the retitled Gods Eater Burst for the PlayStation Portable.

Featuring team-based, action-RPG gameplay in the vein of Capcom’s Monster Hunter series, the God Eater series saw multiple releases in its native Japan, but its sequels and expansions never made it overseas. Bandai Namco plans to relaunch the series in North America in 2016 with God Eater: Resurrection, a remake of Gods Eater Burst for the PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC platforms.

Series sequel God Eater 2: Rage Burst will also hit the PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC platforms worldwide via Steam in 2016.

Also on tap from Bandai Namco in 2016 is Tales of Berseria, a sequel in the publisher’s long-running console-styled RPG franchise. Multiple series entries premiered stateside in recent years, including Tales of Hearts R, Tales of Xillia 2, and October’s Tales of Zestiria for the PlayStation 3. Tales of Berseria will arrive in North America and Europe for the PlayStation 4 and PCs via Steam in 2016.

Several Bandai Namco games based on popular manga and anime licenses will also hit retail in North America in 2016, including Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (PS4, Xbox One, PC), Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Force (PS Vita only), One Piece: Burning Blood (PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita, PC), and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven (exclusively for the PlayStation 4). Release dates for all of today’s announced games have not yet been revealed.
