God Eater Burst, Namco Bandai’s expansion/follow-up to last year’s God Eater, now has a demo available for download. All you have to do is go to THIS PAGE, enter some details, and you’re good to go. It’s in Japanese, but it’s not really that hard to get around.
The demo packs the first 29 missions from the upcoming game, making it one of the heftiest demos we’ve come across in a while. The demo for the original God Eater had about half a dozen tutorial missions and about six main missions. That’s quite a lot of content to play through while waiting for the full game to come out.
For those out of the loop, God Eater is pretty much Namco Bandai’s stab at the co-op beast slaying market that’s so big in Japan these days. As opposed to Monster Hunter’s fantasy setting, God Eater takes place in a post-apocalyptic world and puts you in the shoes of a titular God Eater. As a God Eater, your job is to hunt down and slay Aragami, the creatures who brought about the end of the world in which the game is set. You’ll be able to switch between swords, guns, and shields on the fly and even use the Aragami’s own powers against them. Here’s a trailer from TGS to top things off:
God Eater Burst will be out in Japanese stores on October 28th, both as a full game which in includes the original God Eater, or an “append version” that only contains the expansion. D3 Publisher will be bringing it to English speaking audiences this February 28, 2011.
