Bandai Namco Entertainment announced today that GOD EATER 3 will arrive on Switch in July!
The god slaying, hack-and-slash, action-RPG is slated for release in the west on 12th July 2019. In Japan, however, GOD EATER 3 will launch a day earlier than its western counterpart. It seems Bandai Namco have actually listened to God Eater fans’ request to bring the title to the hybrid system!
In addition, those who place their orders in advance will receive the Tales of Vesperia Exclusive Costumes as a pre-order bonus. These are Switch-exclusive attires and will not be available for sale during and even after the game’s launch
Check out the trailer and announcement below:
Now you can defeat the Ash Aragami anytime and anywhere with the NintendoSwitch version of GOD EATER 3! Devour Aragami in co-op multiplayer battles or play with up to 8 players online! GOD EATER 3 comes to Nintendo Switch on July 12th, 2019.
Join the elite force known as God Eaters, imbued with the unique ability to wield God Arcs, specialized weapons to take down the nearly indestructible Aragami threat that has ravaged the planet. God Arc weapons can come in a wide variety of melee and ranged type capabilities featuring swords, hammers, sickles, spears, shotguns, sniper rifles, and more. Each weapon also comes with unique transforming functions, extending their utility by providing additional attack options to deal more damage. Players can determine which weapon works best for their playstyle and hone its intricacies when taking on missions in Story Mode or online with other God Eater 3 players.
God Eater 3 incorporates new combat mechanics and customization options to create dynamic fights that change the flow of battles. After devouring an enemy, players can activate Burst Arts which change some of normal attacks into special attacks. Players can also choose between several Burst Arts, as well as the specific effects of the Burst Art, to suit their play style. In addition to Burst Arts, a new Dive ability increases the speed of combat by having players race headlong towards enemies for swift attacks, keeping constant pressure on the opposition.
“The Nintendo Switch opens up new ways to experience God Eater 3,” said Jackie Simmons, brand manager for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “The portability of the system means players can meet anytime anywhere to band together and bring down monstrous threats. The platform also enables players to take God Eater 3 on the road, so they’re never far from adventure and fun!”
Players can team-up with three other God Eaters either online or through a local connection to tackle story missions together or combine forces with seven other players online to experience Assault Missions, the largest group battles ever seen in the God Eater franchise. Cooperating and fighting as a team will help engage the Battle Support System. By fighting next to teammates, players can unleash this new ability which shares various power-ups to help the entire team overcome tough fights and secure victory.
Now you can defeat the Ash Aragami anytime and anywhere with the #NintendoSwitch version of #GODEATER3! Devour Aragami in co-op multiplayer battles or play with up to 8 players online!
