On August 9, Koei Tecmo will release a free update for Attack on Titan 2 owners on Nintendo Switch.
The update will add a new playable character called Kenny, who was first seen in the third season of the Attack on Titan anime. A new “Heaven” difficulty mode, ability to practice online-only modes offline, and other features are planned for the update.
See the full details below.
Includes Kenny’s Hat as an original character part
A new character, Kenny, has appeared in Season 3 of the anime “Attack on Titan.” Players will be able to equip his hat in character creation. Recreate Kenny and take him for an omni-directional mobility whirl to drive off the terrible Titans.
Addition of ‘Heaven’ Difficulty
In the Heaven difficulty, consumables like gas and blades, as well as battle items such as smoke signals, have unlimited usage, allowing players to focus more on the actions themselves.
Original characters can be given the unique skills of certain anime characters
Original characters can equip some of the unique skills of the characters from the anime, allowing players to assemble all the skills with powerful effects. Skills are learned after beating the anime character with that skill after that character has reached level 10.
