Bandai Namco has released a new set of God Eater 3 screenshots featuring new character Phym, the new “Burst Arts” system, and the Chrysanthemum Ash Crawler that serves as the player’s hub ship.
Here are a few details, via Bandai Namco:
Following the destruction of their home, God Eater 3 will see the game’s protagonists rescued by the crew of an Ash Crawler called Chrysanthemum. Ash Crawlers serve as the hub ships of the God Eater heroes and the sole lifeline for humans in this post-apocalyptic world. They’re covered with Anti-Aragami walls that protects the last remnants of humanity from the effects of the outside world, as well as housing Resonance Radars systems to seek out and destroy dangerous Aragami.
Following a devastating Ash Storm, The Chrysanthemum crew have lost their members that were capable of operating the Resonance Radar. To survive, they enlist the help of players to defeat the Aragami and restore the routes through the Ashlands. From their moving base, players will have to scout ahead into new and uncharted areas of the Ashlands, to safely guide the Caravan deeper into the world.
Also, revealed today is a new character Phym (voiced by Rina Endou), a mysterious girl sporting a horn on her forehead. Met by the protagonists during a scouting mission, Phym is a vital part of the God Eater 3 story and their encounter with her will change both their lives forever.
