Famitsu, one of the most popular Japanese gaming magazine posted an interview on their website with producer Hisashi Koinuma and game director Tomoyuki Kitamuta on their upcoming Attack On Titan game.
Here are a few interesting nuggets of information:
Ten Playable Characters: Attack On Titan anime focuses on the main character Eren, but in Omega Force and Koei Tecmo’s new game a player has options, ten to be exact. You can play as Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Sasha, Krista, Connie, Hange, Jean, Levi and Erwin.
Investigation Mode – The game will not only allow you to follow the same story as the anime but will offer the player a way to “investigate” on the goings outside of the wall. The player will be able to collect material, earn coin and develop your character.
Original Stories – While the main story will be the focus of the game the player will have the chance to take on missions that were never part of the original Anime or Manga. The original author Hajime Isayame and story producer will work closely together to keep it all relevant.
The game’s launch date is February 18, 2016 for the PS4, PS3 and Playstation Vita. A western release is planned but the date hasn’t been revealed.
