Attack on Titan 2 Gameplay Footage Released

Today, Koei Tecmo hosted a livestream from Japan, showcasing the very first gameplay of Attack on Titan 2. The stream was presented by Koei Tecmo President and Chief Operating Officer Hisashi Koinuma, and Omega Force Manager Hideo Suzuki, alongside Krista’s voice actress Shiori Mikami.

First of all, we get to see a certain relevant cutscene involving Krista. It’s a spoiler if you have not seen the anime or read the manga (and care about getting spoiled), do not watch the third and last video.

After that, get to see part of the game’s introduction, and one of the main new elements of the new game, the character creation. We can customize a lot of different elements via sliders, and also change the character’s gender and outfit’s elements and colors.

The next gameplay section is the tutorial, that allows us to enjoy the overhauled gameplay with the three-dimensional maneuver gear. The scene then moves to an extensive city scene between missions, where the player can enjoy interacting with the other members of the cast.

After that, in the second clip, you can finally see some titan-slaying action from the first mission. Interestingly, the developers also showcased the new telescope, and how titans can get considerably more aggressive.

Interestingly, we learn that more gameplay footage will come in November, another dedicated livestream will come in December, and an Attack on Titan 2 Collector’s Edition is planned.

SPOILER ALERT

Attack on Titan 2 will launch in the west in March 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Switch. The PS Vita version that will only be available in Japan. At the end of today’s video, it was also confirmed that the game will release in March in Japan as well.

 

Pokdepinion: Getting a bit more excited for Attack on Titan 2. The first game was a bit disappointing in the sense that it was kinda repetitive. Let’s hope that’s not the case this time around, otherwise we’re in for a snoozefest.
