How many characters will be included in Attack On Titan 2? And how will this sequel increase the challenge and gameplay from last year’s original?
Earlier this year Koei announced a sequel to their 2016 video game adaption of the hit anime Attack On Titan. Now they’re released more details, including an increased number of playable characters. In the sequel you’ll be able to play as the expected three (Eren, Mikasa and Armin), plus Levi, Miche Zacharias, Nanaba, Gelgar, Ymir and Christa Lenz, and if that’s not enough, you can even make your own Scout with a new menu.
Downtime will be a more important part of the game this time — while wandering around town, you’ll be developing and deepening relationships with your fellow survivors, which will come into importance later in battle. Titan AI will be enhanced this go-round, so you’ll have to work harder and come up with new strategies to bring them down. But you’ve got a new tool in the Monocular, a spying device that lets you pinpoint the positions of Titans and formulate attack strategies beforehand.
Attack On Titan 2 comes out March 2018 for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, XBox One and PC. For more info, browse through Koei’s press release below.
