This past week at the Tokyo Game Show, Koei Tecmo – the developers of the Attack on Titan games – announced the specific platforms that the upcoming Attack on Titan 2 will be released for in the west. The sequel to the first Attack on Titan game was announced this past August, planned for an early 2018 release. Now revealed is the game coming physically to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch with its release; it will also come digitally to PC through Steam. This is the same as Attack on Titan 2‘s Japanese release, with the exception of a PS Vita version, which is going to Japan exclusively.
In a post yesterday, Koei Tecmo America reaffirmed the announcement and shared a few details on the game, writing, “Attack on Titan 2 delves deeply into the fascinating narrative of Attack on Titan’s second season and offers players versatile action and new challenges, as it introduces the newly improved omni-directional mobility gear offering advanced freedom of movement and targeting precision to counter enhanced Titan movements. Players will be able to try their new moves against these fearsome Titans as they control characters from a Titan-sized roster. Outside of battle they will be able to deepen their relationships with their fellow squad-mates while gaining greater insight into life within the walls thanks to more advanced RPG elements.”
According to Koei Tecmo, more information about the game’s narrative, mechanics and release date will be rolling out in the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can check out Attack on Titan 2‘s August announcement teaser trailer below.
