I'll spoil the platforms, it's coming to everything but Switch.

If you want it on Switch, Bandai Namco execs want to see you begging for it.

I guess PS4 and PC (when they announce a western release). Switch would be nice.

Don't care about the platforms. From the screens i like what i am seeing and it looks similar to Code Vein.

Reminds me of Code Vein.

I think it's just part of their marketing strategy.

They'll probably want to release Code Vein first before fully revealing GE3's features. My guess is GE3 won't release within the next 12 months.

I guess they make people who own any platform check the game because it could be coming to a platform they own. Once they are interested in the game and are looking forward to playing it, if it's revealed that it is releasing in a platform they don't own, there's a chance they will eventually buy that plaftorm to play the game.

It also keeps the talk going about the game when the only thing to discuss are a pair of screenshots and a logo.

And for so long to boot. They‘ve showed the first GE3 teaser an eternity ago and they still don‘t name the platforms. Which is especially bizarre because it’ll just end up releasing on the platforms everyone’s expecting anyway (PS4, PC).

Code Vein had an expose in a Playstation magazine, so that kind of was a sly way of unveiling the platform.

You thinking this is another sign they want Microsoft to come over and negotiate an Xbox port?

People are mostly wondering additional platforms I guess. If they will still make for Vita, and if they will make Switch version, etc.

Funny thing is that despite everything Capcom did to turn people off of MH XX on Switch, it still sold WAY more than the God Eaters on PS4 in Japan IIRC.

I'm pretty sure they do decently. Obviously none of them sell at the rate of MH, but God Eater has definitely been a success given its various games, remakes, anime and figures.

I don't know what this has to do with the thread but since when GE is comparable with MH in terms of sales?

Just saying that what's literally a late port of a game that already sold over a million on 3DS, against the announcement of a new HD mainline game on everything else, sold more than the previous God Eater games on PS4 which IIRC were simultaneously released on both PS4 and Vita.

Meaning Switch is 100% a viable system for God Eater 3 to be on. Bandai Namco going by history will disagree for whatever reason, you know it, I know it.

One is the best selling 3rd party franchise of the decade in Japan and the other is a franchise where only two titles managed to crack 500k. Of course MH would sell more.

Granted. But to me XX always seemed like a last minute low key release, it was no MH5 obviously.

Whatever, you see my point. :P

Bandai Namco will rather release it on the dead Vita than Switch.

But if you beg hard enough they “might consider to planning to port it to Switch”

Bamco clearly want us to guess the target platforms, so is fair game. Or should we implement the no port begging rule and assume the game is not coming to any announced platform? :P

Just preparing for the obvious. Not like BN's proven otherwise.
