Attack on Titan 2 slated for PS4, Switch, Vita, and PC in Japan


Hopefully the same for the west

There’s not a ton of games based on movies or anime that turn out great, but Attack on Titanis one of the few exceptions. It captured the spirit of the show in it’s story and the thrill of flying around the titans in combat. The sequel is now headed for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, PC, and even Nintendo Switch at least in Japan. While it’s likely that all but the Vita versions will be the same in the west, an official announcement should come soon.

Attack on Titan 2covers the second season of the anime and the number of playable characters is far greater than the original game (10), although a specific number wasn’t announced. Also 3D Maneuver Gear actions are more diversified and titan movements have evolved according to the developers.

I continue to be impressed by the third-party support the Switch gets. Third-party games helped set the NES and SNES apart from their competition, but from the Nintendo 64 through the Wii U they have struggled. The Switch appears to be reaching those former heights, with arguably better third-party support than the Xbox One.
