Attack on Titan 3DS Game Lets You Play as Sasha in DLC
posted on by Egan Loo
Spike Chunsoft will offer Sasha's route as downloadable content in its Nintendo 3DS action game Shingeki no Kyojin ~Jinrui Saigo no Tsubasa (Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Humanity). Like the route for Levi, Sasha's route in the game's Story mode will be available for free for a limited time. The official website will provide more details later.
Sasha's route will let players enjoy the story from the viewpoint of Sasha. When you clear Sasha's route, you can obtain Sasha's character set as parts for your own character in the multi-player World mode. The set includes a giant "knife and fork" as special weapons.
Levi's route is available for free until January 31, 2014. Famitsu posted more images of Sasha's route.
In the game's Story Mode, the player controls Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and other members of the Survey Corps as they recreate the anime and 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.
Spike Chunsoft shipped the game in Japan on December 5 for 6,090 yen (about US$61). If you clear the Levi route, you can play as him in World Mode and use his special weapons and parts.
