KOEI TECMO announced several new items for their upcoming sequel Attack on Titan 2
. First on the list is a narrower release date window. Previously we only knew the game was coming out in early 2018; now we know that date is narrowed to sometime in March.
Second is a list of playable characters, including the capability to play as a custom scout. The character list includes Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlert, Levi, Miche Zacharias, Nanaba, Gelgar, Ymir and Christa Lenz. Custom scouts should be more enhanced and precise. They'll be able to better analyze and pinpoint far away positions and attack strategies using Omni-Directional Mobility Gear. Custom scouts will also be able to establish relationships with fellow comrades.
KOEI TECMO also released a live stream of the game. Although it’s entirely in Japanese, it details a fair amount of the gameplay.
Last in the news release is a number of screenshots showing Monocolar and Town Life features.Attack on Titan 2
is expected to release sometime in March 2018.
