posted on by Karen Ressler
KOEI Tecmo's Ruby Party team began streaming a second trailer for Shingeki no Kyojin: Shichi Kara no Dasshutsu (Attack on Titan: Escape From the Brink of Death), its upcoming Nintendo 3DS game based Attack on Titan, on Monday. The video shows gameplay and previews the game's original story, where players can see "unexpected sides" to the characters by deepening their bonds.
The game will ship in Japan on March 30. The standard edition will cost 5,800 yen (about US$53), while the Treasure Box edition — which includes a visual book, the soundtrack, two waterproof posters, six large tin badges, and exclusive 3DS themes featuring voices of the characters Mikasa and Levi — will cost 12,800 yen (about US$118). First-print copies of the standard edition will contain an exclusive 3DS theme featuring the voice of Eren, while first-print copies of the Treasure Box edition will contain the Eren theme, as well as a voiced theme featuring Erwin.
The game features an original story. The player character is a member of the Survey Corps who is investigating a certain castle outside the walls. Titans attack and the player falls into the castle's basement with broken 3D maneuver gear. The player must then reconvene with allies — including familiar characters from the anime — and escape the mysterious castle.
Koei Tecmo's Ruby Party team (Neo Romance series of otome games) is developing the game alongside the television anime's visual staff.
KOEI Tecmo Games' Omega Force subsidiary (Warriors/Musou franchise) developed the Attack on Titan (A.O.T: Wings of Freedom) PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita game, which shipped in Japan last February. Koei Tecmo released the game in the Americas and Europe in August and added Xbox One and PC releases. The game was set during the Battle of Trost, but extra missions allowed the player to go beyond the anime's story.
