A couple of hours ago, a mysterious site appeared with a countdown that will now end in less than 70 hours. Every one and a while a different message will pop up, often in various languages, with ambiguous phrases like “Teamwork will help us on the journey,” and “Can you feel the hunger?”So, this could be related to just about anything Bandai Namco owns; however, there are a few clues that point towards something God Eater, specifically to God Eater 2: Rage Burst. related. For now, though, it is simply #mysteriousgame.

First that phrase above, “Can you feel the hunger?” definitely makes some think it is related to God Eater. The biggest indicator, though, was the name of the audio file on the website, which had God Eater in the name and can be seen in the above tweet. That has since been changed, meaning maybe it was a mistake or it’s all part of the game in trying to figure out what the mysteriousgame really is. It has since been changed again. And once more to “mysteriousgame.”
Furthering the possibility that this is related to God Eater comes courtesy of user ekim from NeoGaf, who noticed back in January that Bandai Namco registered the “Rage Burst” trademark in Europe. Rage Burst is the expansion released in February of this year in Japan for God Eater 2. The linked to post also notes that the domain GodEater2rageburst.com was registered earlier this year by Bandai Namco as well.
Finally, the above images occasioanlly clash across the mysterious site, with plenty more than the above too. Bandai Namco tweeted another image as well. Looking around at other speculation, there does not seem to be any clear evidence pointing these images towards a particular evidence, and nobody on TechRaptor staff so far has been able to discern what they could be from either.
As of now, the only speculation circulating around has to do with this image from the quick video above. Many believe it could possibly be one of the prominent bracelets featured throughout the series as seen here. Others have noted that the gold/brass button looking parts in that image show up all over the place on many different character’s clothing designs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. And there are even more than that around too.

While writing this, Siliconera had a reader post an image to compare to one of the mysterious ones on Bandai Namco’s website. As you can see from the tweet above, it seems to confirm that the news will be related to God Eater 2: Rage Burst.
For now, that’s about all the information around that could possibly be related to the site. If you find anything, or know what the images could be, let us know in the comments below?
What do you hope the announcement is for? If it is God Eater, what will it be—a sequel, something coming to the West?
