Video game news website DualShockers reported on Wednesday that KOEI Tecmo president and COO Hisashi Koinuma confirmed that the newly announced Attack on Titan 2 game will be for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Koinuma mentioned that no decision has been made regarding release on other platforms.
Koinuma also confirmed that the game will have improved visuals and frame rate on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.
KOEI Tecmo Games and its Omega Force subsidiary are developing the game. Hideo Suzuki is directing, and Koinuma is the producer. KOEI Tecmo Games America described the game as follows: "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." The sequel game will feature new gameplay mechanics.
KOEI Tecmo Games and Omega Force (Warriors/Musou franchise) released the first game in Japan in February 2016 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. The companies released the game for those three consoles and for the Xbox One and PC via Steam in Europe (under the title A.O.T: Wings of Freedom) and in the Americas in August 2016.
The first game was set during the Battle of Trost. In the game, players can freely walk around in the barracks and town and converse with other characters, upgrade weapons, and gain intelligence on upcoming missions.
Spike Chunsoft is developing a separate Shingeki no Kyojin 2 ~Mirai no Zahyō~ (Attack on Titan 2: Future Coordinates) game for Nintendo 3DS. The game will arrive in Japan this year and is a sequel to the Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains game.
