Bandai Namco announces western releases for Tales of Berseria, One Piece: Burning Blood, and more

Bandai Namco has several games headed to the west next year, including a new Tales game.


Bandai Namco has announced a total of five games are making their way to the west in 2016, including a new Tales adventure, a new JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fighting game, and more.

Tales of Berseria is the latest installment of the iconic Tales Of JRPG games that will be available on both PlayStation 4 and PC. Tales of Berseria is the first game in the series to feature a female character as its singular main protagonist, although players will still encounter a variety of characters to join her on her upcoming quests.

Next up is Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, which will be headed exclusively to the PlayStation 4. The game will feature a new original story supervised by the creator of the original manga series, Hirohiko Araki, and is being developed by CyberConnect2. Players can expect ultra-stylish 2vs2 3D action-brawler battles in the upcoming game.

The next set of games belongs to the God Eater series: God Eater Resurrection and God Eater 2 Rage Burst, both of which will be released in summer 2016 on PS4, Vita, and PC. Bandai Namco didn’t reveal much about either game outside of a generic description of the God Eater series, which follows:

Set in the early 2050s, unknown life forms called Oracle Cells have begun their uncontrolled consumption of all life on Earth. The ravenous appetite of the Oracle Cells, coupled with their remarkable adaptability quickly turns these cells into Earth shattering monsters known as Aragami. Gigantic in size and  completely immune to conventional weapons, Aragami wreak havoc upon the Earth with impunity.  Humanity’s last hope for survival now rests in the hands of individual elite Aragami hunters known as “God Eaters”. These fearless God Eaters take-on Aragami in spectacular battles using recently developed weapons known as God Arcs.

A new Mobile Suit Gundam title, Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs-Force is in development and will launch exclusively on the Vita in 2016. The game has players piloting Mobile Suits to take on missions from scenarios from Mobile Suit Gundam to Mobile Suit Gundam Universal Century. Players will take part in fast-paced 2vs2 gameplay to larger, more strategic Team Battles.

Last, but not least, One Piece: Burning Blood is headed to Steam in 2016. The game will be the first One Piece game to offer 3vs3 fighting action to the PC.
