It was about time for the Attack on Titan sequel to start taking shape. Koei Tecmo hosted an Attack on Titan 2 “World’s First Live Gameplay” broadcast today where the first bits of gameplay was shown and we got some new information as well. As it was announced Attack on Titan 2 will get released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam in March 2018.
According to Koei Tecmo, Attack on Titan 2 will follow the events of the second season of the anime and will feature versatile action gameplay, all new challenges, and a wide selection of playable characters from Attack on Titan, including some new characters from season 2. Ymir and Christa Lenz will be added to the cast of playable characters but they won’t be the only ones since the game will include more than 30 characters to play with.
Players can now also create their own “Custom Scout” through an in-depth Character Creation mode, which was also showcased in the Attack on Titan 2 broadcast.
Another cool thing we’ll be able to see in Attack on Titan 2 is the “monocular”, which will be a tool used by the scouts and lets players analyze the Titans from a distance and scope them for better strategic planning.
When talking about the alternative activities players will be able to do except hunting down Titans, Koei Temco announced in their press release:
Outside of their excursions, Scouts can also deepen their relationships with fellow comrades by training and preparing for battle with the new and improved Town Life gameplay. Strengthening relationships is an important element of Attack on Titan 2, providing a greater insight into the series’ cast in a way that has yet to be experienced.
As aforementioned, Attack on Titan 2 will launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in March 2018, with no solid release date yet announced. You can see more of Attack on Titan 2’s action below:
