Koei Tecmo’s producer, Hisashi Koinuma and director, Tomoyuki Kitamuta have recently revealed some news about their upcoming Attack on Titan game in an interview. The interview revealed that the game will have 10 playable characters including Eren, Mikasa, and Levi. Moreover, the game’s story will follow the first season of the anime. However, while the story will follow the anime, players without knowledge of the “original work” will be able to follow the plot just fine. After completing the game, players will unlock a Warrior style Free Mode which will allow them to replay stages as their favorite characters.
According to the gameplay style, all characters in Attack on Titan will have a movement and a combat mode which players will be able to switch between with R1. The interview also revealed that Koei Tecmo have replicated the Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear’s wire shot pendulum-like movements in the source material. When using the Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear, players will also be able to shoot the wire. Koei Tecmo further stated that players can kill Titans by themselves as it’s quicker to kill them with back-up. They will also be able to give basic instructions or even direct orders depending on the game’s story.
During the game, players will have to keep an eye on their weapons stability and the amount of gas that is left behind. Besides this, they will be able to customize their weapons’ durability, sharpness, gas capacity, wire shot range, and movement speed with new items. The game will include a large number of original weapons and more weapons and items can be obtained by killing Titans and through the “Investigation Outside the Walls Mode” in Attack on Titan.
Attack on Titan will be released this year for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita in Japan, North America and Europe.
