A sequel was released the following year called ''eXceed 2nd: VAMPIRE'', which added a dual-polarity system similar to the one used in {{Ikaruga}}. Instead of the Gun Bullet Children, the protagonist was a vampire fighting for survival as power struggles within the Church left a faction that rejected any form of human hybrid in control of the Inquisition. After seizing control they initiated a worldwide purge and employed the Gun Bullet Children to hunt all vampires down.

** In ''VAMPIRE'', The Catholic Church is launching a worldwide purge and a major rebellion fails to stop them. The rebels eventually try again with a polarity-switching weapon. This story and the gameplay are very similar to that of ''{{Ikaruga}}''.
