We need all the visual aides we can get to make sense of something called "God Eater Burst." Luckily, Namco Bandai UK has released new screenshots and video for the enhanced version of the PSP action RPG, bursting forth into retail next year. Gobble it up after the break.
God Eater Burst re-imagines the post-apocalyptic world with an original and dramatic story of human survival against overwhelming odds. The earth has been plagued by terrifying mutant beasts known as the Aragami and manâ€™s only hope against them is the God Arc weapons and the God Eaters who wield them. Players will create their own hero and battle against many different types of these enemies, picking up items along the way to customize their weapons, guns, bullets and shields, boosting their strength and stamina in the massive scale fights.
The furious pace of the gameplay will send players hurtling through more than twice the number of missions in the original God Eater, demanding quick thinking for tactical shifts between weapons to slash, shoot and devour some seriously imposing enemies. Bullets can be customized to alter their strength, patterns and elemental type for wildly effective super attacks. The original Devouring Attack adds a new strategic level as players transform into Burst Mode, boosting their stats and special bullets to launch potent attacks. Players can hunt with AI controlled party members or join hunting parties with up to four players via Ad Hoc connection, or connect the PSP system to a PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and play online using adhocParty in cooperative mode.
