Koei Tecmo and Omega Force have revealed more about Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle, sharing details on Territory Recovery Mode, Shooting Gear, and Thunder Spear.
In Territory Recovery Mode, you will create your own corps and fight to recover the land outside of the walls. After customizing your corps’ name and emblem, you will assign a commander from any of the game’s playable characters – which includes your custom-made Scout from Attack on Titan 2.
Fought in two rounds, the first is a Base phase where you can freely socialize with allies, use materials to prepare and upgrade equipment, and prepare yourself for the battle ahead. After this, the Outer Campaign phase starts where Scouts will leap beyond the walls to fight to claim the land back for humanity.
You will wield new gear in your battles against your titanic enemies. The standard Slashing Gear returns, letting you quickly slice body parts with the omni-directional mobility gear.
There’s also the powerful Shooting Gear, which replaces your blades with guns. This will let you use One-Handed Attacks that allow for easy targeting and evasion of Titan parts in exchange for faster gas consumption and lower damage attacks, or Two-Handed Attacks which deal massive damage while making it harder to evade incoming hits.
There is also the Thunder Spear, a revolutionary weapon in the fight against the Titans that can completely wipe one out in a single blow.
Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle will release for Nintendo Switch in Japan on July 4th, and across North America and Europe on July 5th. Those that already own Attack on Titan 2 will be able to buy an Upgrade Pack on the Nintendo eShop.
