First Look at Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle’s Colossal New Hero, the Armin Titan

Koei Tecmo details all-new Season 3 content added to their stunning action game.

Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle delivers all of the action from the popular anime to PlayStation 4, and that includes storylines beginning with Season 1 all the way through the end of Season 3, Part 2. That’s right, the game is working hand-in-hand with the show’s creators to recreate the most heart-pounding Titan battles (as well as original stories!), including an intriguing character development, the Armin Titan.

“To endure becoming a monster, you have to discard your humanity.” — Armin Arlert

Armin, known to Attack on Titan’s fans as the introverted scout and quick-witted soldier, has eaten the villainous Bertolt in a recent anime episode, leaving the impression that he acquired the power to transform into the Colossal Titan. And that transformation is already complete in the upcoming PS4 game releasing on July 5.

Summoning the Armin Titan in the game’s all-new Character Episode mode — a branching storyline that covers all of Season 3 through three different perspectives (the Scout Regiment, the 104th Cadets, and the enemies of humanity known as the Warriors) — players will now be able to call on Armin’s assistance to help smash enemies at will thanks to the giant-sized Armin Titan. Unlocking Armin Titan in Character Episode mode then enables you to experience the fun of pounding enemies as the skinless giant in some of the game’s other modes as well.

But that’s not all of the new Season 3 content included in Final Battle, as the upcoming game also introduces the heroes’ new Thunder Spears into action, enabling players to fire projectiles at Titans for the first time in series history. Add to that the addition of rapid-fire Gatling guns, anti-personnel omni directional mobility gear, and other fantasy weapons, and the showdown between man and Titan has never been more intense.

“The only thing we’re allowed to believe is that we won’t regret the choice we made.” — Hajime Isayama

In addition, Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle includes an all-new Territory Recovery mode, where fans can put together their dream team of Titan killers in hopes of taking back their land, all the while researching and upgrading their weapons to deliver the ultimate impact. Playing through Territory Recover mode and Character Episode mode, fans can expect at least 30 hours of all-new explosive content at their fingertips, with over 70 hours of gameplay to achieve 100-percent completion. Add in addictive online modes with characters flying across the screen blasting each other with the new Gatling guns and Thunder Spears, and fans of the award-winning anime will have more variety in Titan gameplay than ever before.

Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle will be available as an upgrade pack for fans who already own Attack on Titan 2 (enabling you to begin your battle in Season 3), or as a standalone game for those who are starting fresh, delivering all of the action of Seasons 1-3 in one package.

“If you win, you live. If you lose, you die. If you don’t fight, you can’t win.” — Eren Yeager

Attack on Titan fans who are enjoying the show’s latest season can continue the battle on PS4 on July 5.

    Dat big ol’ anime spoiler right in the title though.

  • Yeah guys there’s gonna be lots of people who haven’t read the manga and aren’t caught up on season 3 yet. I’m not even sure they’ve actually gotten to this yet.

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo

      That moment aired at almost the start of June, months ago in the manga. The only people really having a whinge are the ones who have nothing better to do and need the fake outrage machine to keep rolling along.

  • When you try to comment here, it says “Add a comment – But don’t be a jerk!” I guess this message must be added when posting to the blog too… Spoilers in the title is freaking unforgivable!

  • When even the gameplay trailer have framedrops…

  • ZiggyPoopdust

    Thank you for putting a major spoiler right there in the title.

  • DuoMaxwell007

    Yeah thanks for the spoilers. Coulda at least left out the part about Armin eating Bertolt in the anime, because then I woulda just thought this was some video game exclusive or filler stuff and not actual canon (and thus not sen it as a spoiler). I mean since we’re spoiling. Hes some of my own. I JUST saw the episode were Armin clearly died (I mean I dont know how you get up from or survive what I saw happen to him in quite graphic detail), but now thanks to you guys I now know he not only died but becomes a titan too.

    • DuoMaxwell007

      edit “not only didnt die”

    • assassin_ninjax3

      do not spoilers please iam watching the dub on adult sim i very shock to what happen Armin he died maybe he not dead or there twist coming so he really became titan

  • LongClaw998

    Not only has Endgame been spoiled recently for a lot of people but now we got AoT spoilers.

  • Jisatsu_Kiddo

    People that are crying about “spoilers” the episode aired at the start on June. You have had a month to see it or if you are reading the manga months ahead of time. So just stop acting entitled for once.

    • DuoMaxwell007

      Yup cause everyone reads manga or watches subs right? Also by your logic you’re saying it’s fine for me to start spoiling Endgame now?

    • LEFT__4__DEAD__2

      Dont argue just enjoy gaming :) im Japanese and anime does come out in Japan 1st 99% of the time but space dandy and FLCL Progressive & FLCL Alternative came out in english dub 1st on toonami, i love anime and cosplaying.

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo

      yes you have had more the enough time to see it. i get so sick of people crying.

    • Wow Jisatsu you’re usually right but you’re being more than a jerk now.Really?…the devs put a huge spoiler like that in the title and you think they aren’t wrong.Shingeki is a serie that a small spoiler can really ruin everything since it’s so well written…let alone a major spoiler like that.They were reckless as hell with that title.

    • LEFT__4__DEAD__2

      I enjoy spoilers in games even forms that are not in manga or anime yet its intriguing and gets you hyped, everyone thinks different so some might not like even the smallest spoiler like a single hair on a characters head is different its still fun :3

  • What about a big “SPOILER ALERT” before the title?

  • LEFT__4__DEAD__2

    Its not a spoiler if its something added in a game, its inevitable and its good either way more content to enjoy like if you play a DBZ game or Naruto/Boruto game and you see characters/forms/powers/etc you never seen before still very fun, i love attack on titan im currently watching attack on titan on toonami since the first season <3

  • Lol came here to say about the insane spoiler in the title but didn’t expect everybody to be mad on that.Damn I’m glad I decided to follow each episode per week since season 2 started,I knew the dangers of spoilers lurk in every corner of the internet…had I not been following season 4 since the very beginning I would’ve been spoiled by this which is such a huge thing on the plot.Jesus Koei talk about being reckless and unprofessional…whoever thought there was nothing wrong with throwing a spoiler like that needs to be fired.
