Looking for some (more) monster hunting action on Nintendo Switch? Bandai-Namco have announced that they are bringing God Eater 3 to the Nintendo Switch this July. It will be released on July 11th in Japan, and July 12th in Europe and North America.
Unfortunately, Bandai-Namco do not specify whether God Eater 3 is getting any Nintendo Switch-specific features or even content. All we know is that players who pre-order the game will get an exclusive set of costumes based on Yuri and Estelle from Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition.
Here’s what those costumes look like:
Here’s a trailer, some details, and some pictures (including the boxart):
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.
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.
God Eater 3 (Switch) comes out on July 11th in Japan, and July 12th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
