Bandai Namco has released new information and screenshots of God Eater 3 detailing new character Claire Victorious, new Ashland Aragami Nuadha, and the Dive and Burst Art action systems.
Get the details below.
■ New Character: Claire Victorious
Claire Victorious (voiced by Haruka Tomatsu)
“I will respect for the way you work, but I do not admire your needless wandering.”
A qualified God Eater who belongs to Gleipnir. She has a diligent, honors student temperament, and specializes in logistical support and first aid in battle. She meets the protagonist and Hugo during a certain container escort mission, who were carrying out duties in the Ashlands.
Gleipnir is an organization that originates from the division of the same name that existed within the old Fenrir headquarters’ army. Numerous God Eaters as well as Adaptive God Eaters are among its ranks.
By escaping the danger of the calamity that occurred and contributing to the settlement of the chaos that followed, Gleipnir’s influential strength in the region around the old Fenrir headquarters grew strong.
The organization possesses several ports, and has taken on the role of mediator between ports. When conflict broke out between ports, Gleipnir mediated based on the “Ashland Navigation Act.”
■ Ashland Aragami: Nuadha
A gigantic, one-armed Aragami who wears ornaments that would make you think it is the Wisdom King of Buddhism. Human arm-like feelers wriggle from the mass on its right shoulder, a miasma flows from out of its skeleton head, and a mysterious light radiates from the depths of its red eyes.
Nuadha mainly attacks by swinging its huge left arm, wrestling down its targets with low hits, mow downs, charges, and more. When it switches over to the Burst state by devouring, the feelers wriggling from the mass on its right shoulder expand and form a sinister right arm. Its dual arms enable it to unleash long reaching attacks of devastating power.
■ God Eater 3 Battle Basics
Rule the sky with battles centered around “dives.” Overpower the Aragami through devours and Burst Arts.
◆ New Action: Dive
A new attack action where the player charges with their shield out in front. In the locked-on state, you can automatically follow the enemy Aragami, and outside the locked-on state, the player can charge towards the direction the character is facing. This action can be used to rush towards an Aragami or make an urgent escape.
◆ New Action: Burst Arts
A Burst Art is a special attack that players can perform while in Burst Mode. Burst Attacks can be customized into three attacks depending on the positioning of the player: on the ground, in the air, or while performing a quickstep maneuver. Each Burst Art can also be customized with a Burst Art Effect from among several types, which augments the Burst Art to the player’s preference.
Biting Edge Examples
—“Dancing Tiger” – Evolution of the On the Ground Square Button Attack
A slash-unleashing combo attack where the sword blade is covered in Oracle energy.
—“Dive to Blue” – Evolution of the Aerial Triangle Button Attack
Covers the sword blade in Oracle energy and unleashed a top-down slash attack of strengthened attack range and force.
—“Angel Fall” – Evolution of the Mow Down Blade Step Attack
Flys forward after a quickstep and unleashes a slash attack from the air that strikes the ground.
Heavy Moon Examples
—“Storm of the Rising Moon” – Evolution of the Moon Storm Attack
When in the Axe Moon Expanded State, this attack activates Oracle cells and unleashes a Moon Storm with strengthened attack range and force.
—“Twilight Moon” – Evolution of the Triangle Aerial Attack
Expands to the Axe Moon form while in the air and swoops down to strike the ground.
—“Tempestar” – Evolution of the Triangle Step Attack
Following a leap from a quickstep, this action unleashes an attack in every direction of the character.
◆ Burst Art Effects
Burst Art Effects are a customization element in Burst Arts in which the player can set further additional effects for the selected Burst Art.
Burst Art Effect Examples
Fires crescent moon-style Oracle energy forward.
—“Pillars of Heaven”
Creates several pillars of Oracle energy around the character.
Creates a massive shockwave in front of the player accompanying an explosion of condensed Oracle energy.
Here is a look at how the Burst Art Effects depicted above can be applied to existing Burst Arts:
—“Angel Fall” on its own
—“Angel Fall” with the “Pillars of Heaven” effect
—“Angel Fall” with the “Rage Smash” effect
