Spike Chunsoft will release its Nintendo 3DS action game Shingeki no Kyojin ~Jinrui Saigo no Tsubasa (Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Humanity) in Japan on December 5, and it will offer Levi's route as downloadable content. The "Levi route" will let gamers play from the popular character's perspective in the game's Story Mode, which recreates the story in Hajime Isayama's manga and subsequent anime.
The Levi route will be free for a limited time starting on the game's December 5 launch. The Story Mode also has routes for Eren, Armin, and Mikasa. If you clear the Levi route, you can play as him in the game's multiplayer World Mode and use his special weapons and parts. Famitsu magazine had previously teased that Levi and other characters might be available.
Spike Chunsoft did not mention if Levi's route involves housecleaning:
Below is the game's latest promotional video. The video contains a spoiler for a development in the original story at the 24-second mark.
In the game's Story Mode, the player controls members of the Survey Corps as they take on the invading giants. At the beginning of this mode, the player can only play as Eren, but as the game progresses, the player can choose Mikasa and Armin. The characters use the story's signature 3D manuever gear for "speedy action."
In each mission, the computer control allies who fight alongside the player. If allies are captured, the player can rescue them by cutting the Titans' arms before the humans are eaten. Naturally, if the characters are eaten by the giants, the player fails the mission and the game is over. After clearing missions, players can obtain parts that can be used in the game's other mode, World Mode.
Up to four players can cooperate in the World Mode. Players can make, customize, and train their own original characters. Once created, the characters can take on either conventional or survey missions. As a character's level rises, he or she can be equipped with newly developed weapons, better 3D manuever gear, and other items.
