Koei Techmo has been on fire today with releasing new information on upcoming titles. The most recent sneak peek includes our favourite Titan slayers from the brutally gory anime/manga series Attack on Titan. Attack on Titan 2 is the sequel game from Tecmo that aims to be just as fan-pleasing as the first. There are a few notable improvements however, and that is apparent in the revealed character customisation that was shared today via newly released screenshots.
With the upcoming title, players are given the option to customise their unique character so that they can fully immerse themselves in the world that the anime has brought to life. So for those Levi fans out there, now's your chance to get kicked in the face as if you were actually there! Or not, that works too.
With the new patch of screenshots also comes a more detailed look at some of the show's favourites such as horse boy Jean Kirschtein, potato girl Sasha Braus, cinnamon roll Marco Bodt, and more. Maybe Bodt will have a little more screen time this go around, I would only be half as excited to see that. We also get a closer look at the Titan Research Institute, which is what the game will primarily revolve around.
The Titan Institute allows players to study titans that have been captured using a specific device. The more research done, the more favorable the game experience. This will also allow for better gear, missions, and more to enhance the overall mechanics of Attack on Titan 2.
Attack on Titan 2 will launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on March 20th 2018, with a Japan release slated for March 15th. Cue motivational Erwin speech here.
