Hope they take their time with it though. Won't want the F/SN project getting in the way of budget.

Well, they have F/SN, another Kara no Kyoukai movie in works, and the rumored Tsuki Hime remake going on...

All in all, they have a massive amount of anime due out.

If the anime is good then it will help by a lot.

MeteorPanda1493d ago

so they can make an anime but not a localisation of ge2 due to costs? What? WHAT?

scark921493d ago

I would imagine the Anime will help sales in Japan.

NovusTerminus1493d ago

Cost / risk of a Vita game stateside is rather steep for small companies.

I imagine the PS4 version will come over.

Imho, the anime is a win-win situation for God Eater fans and Bamco.

While God Eater fans can enjoy a high quality anime from Ufotable (the studio who made Fate/Zero, Fate/Stay Night, and Tales of Xillia 1 & 2 anime cutscenes), but if the anime got popular in US/EU it will increase the chance for Bamco to localize God Eater 2.

Just look at Sword Art Online. At first, Bamco doesn't have plan to localize SAO: Hollow Fragment because at that time the anime doesn't have enough follower in US/EU. But more and more people got interested with the series and when season 2 got announced this year, the series already had enough fans for Bamco to localized the games. The result is very good where Hollow Fragment sold like 100k+ in US/EU and shipped 400k worldwide.

Also, PS4 is selling like hotcakes. So there's more possibility for Bamco to localize GE 2: Rage Burst for PS4 & vita next year. So be patient mate.

l'm patient, just blows my mind they'd jump to an anime before localizing a game. to me that's backwards as hell

This game would make for a really good anime. Something similar to Attack on Titan or something.
