Attack on Titan: You can Play Eren as a Titan

By   /   2 years ago

Shingeki no Kyojin or Attack on Titan was confirmed as a game in July this year, since then we have had the first gameplay trailer and details on the playable characters. This time, Spike Chunsoft has revealed another feature: playable character Eren can transform into a Titan too.

The feature has its roots in the anime series that the game is based on. In Shingeki no Kyojin the lead characters are also “Titan Shifters,” a power that lets them turn themselves into a Titan. The transformation requires an injury, usually a self inflicted one.

According to Siliconera (who reported courtesy of Famitsu) protagonist Eren has that power in the game but if we look at the lore in the anime series, other characters notably Annie was also a Titan Shifter. The playable characters that have been confirmed in the game so far include Eren, Mikasa and Armin.

The post also told that in Titan mode, Eren will be faster and more powerful than other Titans which means you can easily stomp them dead.

Other than this, a new “World Mode” will bring a huge range of missions divided into two types i.e. Basic and Investigation. As you progress through them, new missions will continually be unlocked.

The World Mode will allow a greater level of customization to your character too, for instance when you are about to start a mission you will be able to edit your character and enhance his abilities. The editing will let you add specific skills and abilities to the character which you can maneuver to your benefit against the Titans.

Talking about going up against the Titans, here is a tip for you: try hitting them behind their necks i.e. the weaker spots. In case the pace of the game makes that tough, you should target their legs, get them to the ground and hit them where it hurts. The combat will use three dimensional movements.

Is your 3DS ready for December 5? Or will you need to watch some more anime to convince yourself into buying this one?
