KOEI Tecmo Games announced during Tokyo Game Show 2017 on Saturday that it will release the Attack on Titan 2 game in Japan on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in early 2018. The game's story will cover through the events of the anime's second season.
KOEI Tecmo president and COO Hisashi Koinuma confirmed in August that the game would get a release for the PS4 and Xbox One, but said at the time that no decision had 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. The game is slated for early 2018 worldwide.
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.
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.
