Koei Tecmo has finally announced that Attack on Titan 2, the sequel to the series' game adaptation, will be released in March 2018 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. Following the gripping events of the anime's second season, players will get to experience the improved action gameplay, new challenges, and a wide selection of playable characters including new faces that were introduced in the second season.
During a special broadcast, Koei Tecmo introduced a selection of playable characters while simultaneously unveiling the ability for players to create their own character, a Custom Scout. They also confirmed that players will be able to play as; Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlert, Levi, Miche Zacharias, Nanaba, Gelgar, Ymir and Christa Lenz.
Attack on Titan 2 will feature enhanced Titan movements and attacks, requiring more precise manoeuvres from players. Additionally, it introduces the Monocular; allowing scouts better analysation based on pinpointing Titan positions from afar and attack strategy utilising their Omni-Directional Mobility Gear.
Outside of their excursions, Scouts can also deepen their relationships with fellow comrades by training and preparing 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.
