Attack on Titan 2, Koei Tecmo’s action game based on the second season of the anime series, is coming to consoles and PC next March, the publisher announced today.

Koei Tecmo also confirmed the list of playable characters coming to Attack on Titan 2: Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlert, Levi, Miche Zacharias, Nanaba, Gelgar, Ymir and Christa Lenz. Players will also have the option to create their own custom character, called a Scout.

Also new to Attack on Titan 2 is the monocular, a tool that lets players analyze Titans from afar, scoping them out for strategic purposes or simply giving them a closer look at the beasts’ humongous butts (see gallery below for details).

Koei Tecmo also talked about Attack on Titan 2’s social components during a Japanese-language livestream today. Scouts will be able to “deepen their relationships with fellow comrades by training and preparing for battle with the new and improved Town Life gameplay.” The publisher called relationship building “an important element” of the sequel and way to provide greater insight into Attack on Titan 2’s cast of characters.

Attack on Titan 2, is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One sometime in March 2018. For more on the game, check out Polygon’s interview with developer Omega Force from Tokyo Game Show 2017.
