Monster Munch: God Eater 2 Released On PC

Monster Hunter with less guts

It seems unlikely that Capcom will release a proper Monster Hunter game on PC any time soon but hey, we do now have an attractive Monstalike option. God Eater 2 Rage Burst [official site], a Monstalike action-RPG from Bandai Namco, came out today and they're throwing in a revamp of the first game too.

So! There are big monsters and you duff them up in real-time combat together with AI squadmates or co-op pals. They'll take a heck of a beating but hey, you get to use bits of them to craft new weapons and things. Sadly, I believe this crafting is less visibly visceral than Monster Hunter - while it might say you're using monsterbits, you never just tape some guts and a tooth onto a stick.

God Eater 2 Rage Burst is £39.99/49,99€/$49.99 on Steam, launching on the same day as console versions. As the first God Eater was only for PSP, Bamco do include a remastered version of it - but it's not sold separately. You might want to play that first.

"We invite you to dive into the world of God Eater Resurrection before you play God Eater 2 Rage Burst, that way you can enjoy the 'God Eater' universe from the beginning," producer Yusuke Tomizawa said in the launch announcement.

Here's the Rage Burst launch trailer, with all that there flash and drama:

As for gameplay, here's a wee vid Bamco whipped up because they were so jolly pleased it supports 60fps on PC:

Bamco are getting better at PC versions, aren't they?
