Western release lines up nicely with Japan's launch plans
Koei Tecmo held a Japanese live stream for Attack on Titan 2, so now we have more information about the upcoming action game sequel. Chief among the reveals is the fact that it now has a March 2018 launch window on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in both Japan and the west.
Koei Tecmo also showed off custom Scout creation and a few of the playable characters, confirming Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlert, Levi, Miche Zacharias, Nanaba, Gelgar, Ymir, and Christa Lenz.
Of course, the stream featured footage, too, which you can see around the 23 and 50 minute marks below.
More from the press release:
ATTACK ON TITAN 2 will feature enhanced Titan movements and attacks, requiring more precise maneuvers from players. Additionally, it introduces the Monocular; allowing scouts better analyzation based on pinpointing Titan positions from afar and attack strategy utilizing their Omni-Directional Mobility Gear.
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 Lifegameplay. 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.
