This week’s Famitsu has Information on an Attack on Titan Visual Novel game which is currently in Development at Koei Tecmo’s Branch Ruby Party. Currently 30% completed.
Ruby Party is known for their Visual Novels and Otome Games in Japan, such as Geten no Hana. You can expect this game to target both male and female audience and might make you able to get a bit closer to your fave character.
The Information was some gameplay elements and confirmed characters that appear.
As seen in the picture, confirmed appearing characters are: Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Jean, Sasha, Connie, Krista, Ymir, Reiner, Bertholt, Levi, Erwin and Hange.
The Protagonist of this game is a character you create. Depending on which gender you choose, you get different partners. If you choose a male characters, you get Mikasa, if you choose a female characters, you get Levi.
The Story takes place before meeting the female Titan and is about investigating an old castle. (Maybe the old castle from the actual story, I don’t know)
In the game you get Co-op Quests. Choosing the right choices will grant you Recognition and strengthens your bond with the character you’re teaming up with. Building bonds with the characters will grant you ‘heart-throbbing’ events if the bond is deep enough.
In the enviroment you get to check on stuff to get items and hints but checking unnecessary stuff might let you get spotted by Titans so be careful.
If you screw up in your decisions, you’re Game Over will be that you’ll be eaten by Titans. What a fitting death.
Furthermore, Krista and Ymir and Reiner and Bertholt are always paired up so joining them will make you a 3-people group.
Lastly, the game doesn’t have a release date, yet and also no confirmation of a western release. Seeing that it’s Ruby Party developing the game, it is hard to say if it will ever get a western release as we didn’t get much or any of Ruby Party’s games in the west, yet, though it would be a good start.
