Bandai Namco Just Officially Announced God Eater 3

By David Bash on at

Bandai Namco have unveiled God Eater 3 along with its first trailer during their God Eater-themed livestream today.

You would be forgiven for thinking this all looks oddly familiar; the art style and aesthetic from the trailer look eerily similar to Bandai Namco's recently announced Souls-like, Code Vein. That's not a bad thing!

Here's the official press release from Bandai Namco:

After the successful launch of God Eater 2: Rage Burst, leading video game publisher and developer Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia announces that it will be bringing God Eater 3 that is totally upgraded from last series, the latest iteration of the monster slaying action RPG series. God Eater 3 is developed for home console.

A lot of years have been passed from the last battle. The earth is not anymore the place humans were used to live. The Aragami, terrifying beats are still raging around the world creating misery and destruction. To save the world and re-establish the balance new heroes has been raised – the God Eaters – man who have been gifted or cursed with new version of the God Arc weapons – special implants powered by Aragami cells. Team up with your other God Eaters to take down monstrous new Aragami that are tearing apart locations around the globe. But this won’t be your only mission, something is happening to the God Eaters and the line between dark and light has never been so thin… It’s time to start breaking free from the cursed shackles that bind the soul of the God Eaters while the battle will rush as never before…

No official word on platforms or release date yet, but it's probably worth mentioning that the last entry to the series was released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC.
