God Eater 3 is an action role-playing game developed by Marvelous and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The third main entry in the God Eater series, the game was released for PlayStation 4 in Japan in December 2018, and worldwide in February 2019 for PlayStation and Microsoft Windows, with a Nintendo Switch version released in July 2019. Marvelous replaced Shift as the game’s developer since Bandai Namco wanted to create a new game that is very different from its predecessors. The game’s introduction sequence was created by Japanese animation studio Ufotable. Unlike previous entries in the series, the game was not designed for handheld platforms.
Like its predecessor, the game is an action role-playing game with hack and slash gameplay. Players are equipped with God Arc weapons which can be transformed. In the game, players are tasked to hunt massive monsters known as Aragami. The player character is a God Eater who can absorb energy from monsters to unleash “burst moves”, special attacks that deal a lot of damage to enemies. The game can be played cooperatively with four other players, while assault missions accommodate up to 8 players. God Eater 3 introduced three new God Arc weapon-types as well. Players can activate the Engage System to share combat perks with them during combat.
Expand your close-combat armory with the dual-wield God Arc “Biting Edge” and the two-handed moon axe “”Heavy Moon””, or fight from afar with the new “”Ray Gun”” God Arc!
