It is no secret that Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan is a bit of an acquired taste. The post apocalyptic manga/anime franchise is not a shonen franchise by any means and its bleak, pessimistic take on a world where humans are constantly under threat from carnivorous, savage giant humanoids can turn on some readers/watchers.
However, AoT has proven to be popular enough to be considered a massive commercial success, with adaptations in various mediums such as live action film and even videogames. The latter, in particular, is popular enough to warrant a sequel to the Koei Tecmo-published, Omega Force-developed game.
A teaser trailer serves as the official announcement from Koei Tecmo, providing a look at how the game recreates scenes from the anime’s second season. You can watch it below:
In Koei Tecmo’s own words:
We are proud to reveal today that a sequel to 2016’s titanic action game, Attack on Titan, is currently in development by Omega Force. To celebrate the announcement, We released a teaser site which reveals the title and stunning key art for the latest game based on the worldwide anime series phenomenon.
Building on the fast-paced action the series is famous for, and featuring an abundance of new gameplay mechanics, the gripping sequel will be released across America as ATTACK ON TITAN 2 in Early 2018. Players will once again don the renowned Omni-Directional Maneuver Gear as they fight and repel the fearsome Titans that threaten humanity, to restore peace within the walls.
While more information about the game’s release, platforms, and narrative will be unveiled in the coming weeks, We released an immersive teaser trailer featuring famous scenes from the comics and anime, fully rendered with in-game graphics.
