An interview featured and Famitsu (and translated by Gematsu) has revealed the general producer’s and director’s thoughts on the reaction to the trailer announcing their next project, tentatively titled “God Eater New Project.”

The producer is Yusuke Tomizawa and the director is Hiroshi Yoshimura. The interview can be read below.

How was it to see everyone’s reaction to the trailer?

Yoshimura: “I’ve only seen the reaction of the crowd at the venue so far, but they were watching so intently, so that was a relief. The narration was meant to be a puzzle, but it seems like many people figured it out…”

I’ll be straightforward. With the three claws in the trailer and the number on Tomizawa’s t-shirt, can we assume this is God Eater 3?

Tomizawa: “Ah, that t-shirt was on backwards (laughs).”

So then… we can consider this “3”?

Tomizawa: “Whatever the next new title we pursue may be, we’ll be going straight for that. At least, it won’t be a console version of God Eater Online.”

Is the trailer running in real time?

Yoshimura: “I’d like you to you to guess based off the fact that it says, ‘Footage shown is under development.’ Of course, that doesn’t mean that the product looks just like that, it’s just the current state.”

Tomizawa: “We still haven’t specified the platform. We put together the things we have currently under development.”

From what we saw in the video, it seems like this is a story set in the future?

Yoshimura: “For now I’ll leave that part to your imagination. One thing I can say is that the trailer doesn’t have some sort of ‘it was all a dream’-type ending.”

What’s the current state of development?

Tomizawa: “In the project’s current phase, we’re solidifying the game’s direction. After that, we’ll go into the sort of stage where we decide how to apply things like technology and graphics.”

God Eater New Project is currently in development.

    “At least, it won’t be a console version of God Eater Online.” – praise Odin!

      Now just to hope that it won’t require playing it for the story, or that we get it. Either way I suppose. Just wouldn’t want to deal with a “Here’s these guys and this thing, and they’re all really rather important, but you should know this by now because you played GEO after all so we’re not going to elaborate.” kind of scenario.

      I don’t mind the story. In fact it differentiates it from Monster Hunter. Same with Toukiden.

    • Landale

      I’m not saying there being a story is a problem. I’m just saying I hope some important detail to the story isn’t tucked away in GEO, especially if we don’t get that.
