Attack on Titan 3DS Game's Updated Chain Edition Profiled in 3-Minute Video
posted on by Egan Loo
Spike Chunsoft began streaming a new three-minute introductory video for the Shingeki no Kyojin ~Jinrui Saigo no Tsubasa~ CHAIN (Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Humanity CHAIN) Nintendo 3DS game on Tuesday.
The video highlights the improvements in the new version: Internet cooperative play, limited text chat within gameplay and in the lobby area, five character routes in Story Mode that run parallel to the original manga, notable anime scenes that run as the player progresses through the game, new stages, and new Titans. It will also have the both opening sequences from the television anime.
The Single Player Mode will have expanded missions, while the Multi-Player Mode allows up to four players to collaborate via the Nintendo 3DS system's Wi-Fi support on the Internet (or locally). There will also be additional weapons and additional costumes. The update adds over 20 voices for both new characters and characters that already appeared in the original version.
The Titans have new behaviors, and the staff have fine-tuned the 3D maneuver gear's motions, the game's difficulty levels, and other aspects. The pre-mission lobby has been revamped, the interface has been improved, and the game now supports the Circle Pad Pro (Slide Pad Expansion) peripheral and rankings.
Fereeta, an original character from the Mobage smartphone game Shingeki no Kyojin -Jiyū e no Hōkō- (Attack on Titan: Roar for Freedom), will be playable in the Chain edition of the 3DS game. In return, the Mobage game will offer statues of Chain's original 14-meter and 25-meter Titan characters as items from December 4 to January 4.
The game is an update to last year's Shingeki no Kyojin ~Jinrui Saigo no Tsubasa~ Nintendo 3DS game. People who already own the original game can buy an "update kit" in the Nintendo eShop, and their save data will transfer over to the updated edition. The packaged retail and download versions will both cost 5,378 yen (about U$51), while the update kit will cost 2,160 yen (US$21, plus some free space on an SD card).
The game will debut on December 4.
