Glad that I am getting a much improved version of God Eater early next year thanks to the enhancements Namco is making to the original version. Set for release in Japan in two months' time, God Eater Burst new elements are being revealed in a recent issue of Weekly Famitsu.
We know from the initial unveil that there will be a new storyline and the latest report revealed a new character called Ren (above left). She is said to be the key character to what is going to happen after the original storyline.
Besides adding tonnes of new costumes (2nd and 3rd from left above) that you probably don't care, there are new weapons that mimic the shape of Aragamis. The supporting cast, which didn't receive much care in the original game, also received some upgrade. You can now change their costumes as well and the amount of voice-overs are increased significantly.
Mid Air Guard
You no longer have to worry about being attacked by the Aragamis while trying to perform a mid air attack. Mid Air Guard allows players to act against counter attacks by the enemies.
Step Cancel Guard
Performing Step to dodge certain attacks put yourself in deep troubles if enemies perform area attacks in the original game. You can now cancel Step and immediately switch to guard mode when in this kind of situation.
A completely new Skill for the God Eater Burst and only available when you are in Burst Mode.
Besides new bullets and also new tracks, Namco has improve the usability of Bullet Edit. Damages are now shown clearly in number in edit mode to help ease the bullet creation mode.
Used to record your achievements in the game and exchange with others, Avatar Card can now be used for items exchange too.
You can now break items that have been combined.
