Difficult if not impossible to escape the phenomenon The Attack of the Titans (Shingeki No Kyojin in Japanese). This manga started in 2009 and imagined by Hajima Isayama multiplies the adaptations between movies, video games, anime, drama, and exploits relentlessly this dazzling success. After a first videogame adaptation by Koei Tecmo and OMEGA Force in August 2016, a second episode is set to conquer the world of men. Attack On Titan 2 Mobile is about to eradicate humanity on the brink of extinction. The Apocalypse is about to begin.
About Attack On Titan 2 Mobile
Scripturally speaking, Attack On Titan 2 Mobile covers the first two seasons of the animated adaptation where The Wings of Liberty was content with the 24 episodes of the first season. To avoid spoilers and other hype, just know that the human species is on the verge of extinction in a uchronic 8th century haunted by hordes of Titans, hungry creatures several meters high. The risk of repetition between the two games was therefore great, but it is not so.
Attack On Titan 2 Mobile abandons the emblematic characters of the franchise to focus on an unknown soldier from the Exploration Battalion who had been trained with the emblematic heroes of the saga. Fans are familiar with the above narrative arcs from cover to cover and reliving them once again from the point of view of Eren, Armin, Mikasa, Jean, etc. was of little interest. Omega Force, conscious of this problem, integrates into the main storyline a new character created from scratch by the player. Immersion level, difficult to make more effective.
Involving the player is the credo of this second adaptation. Through a renowned logbook called “Logbook of Exploration”, the life of this shadowy hero unfolds in broad daylight. Attack On Titan 2 Mobile presents the conflict from a new point of view; that of Monsieur Tout Le Monde, a soldier among many others driven by a powerful desire for vengeance. And this desire to make the player an actor in his own adventure is found in these multiple-choice discussions involving the latter. Admittedly, these mechanics have little or no impact on the course of the story, but they do have the merit of immersing the survivor a little more in the heart of an apocalyptic conflict.
And manga purists can put away their pitchforks and display a radiant smile. Omega Force respects the original material and allows itself very little scriptwriting swerve. This new hero fits into the universe imagined by Hajima Isayama without making waves and follows the events that punctuate the story without rewriting it. Of course, screenwriters sometimes twist reality to make the scene playful and pleasant to play, without ever risking offending the Holy Scriptures. Attack On Titan 2 Mobile covers some of the darker areas of manga and anime and focuses the story on a unique point of view.
Those who are resistant to English will also be reassured. The entire adventure and accompanying content are available in Japanese with French subtitles. No need to take out a dusty dictionary to explore this uchrony.
The Master Of The Air
The combat system in Attack On Titan 2 Mobile changed little between the two episodes. Omega Force has worked hard to erase the imperfections of the Wings of Freedom and to refine the three-dimensional movements that make this Beat’em All a special kind of Beat’em All. Our hero now runs on the walls and is much less often stuck in the scenery, even if these inconveniences still occur at times. The feeling of speed and precision that emanates from the action scenes intoxicates the player as he twirls in the midst of these titanic gluttons. Soldiers of the Exploration Battalion hover several feet above the battlefield, scanning their target before they meltdown on it in a split second to sever the lower part of its neck in a lightning attack whose effectiveness depends on timing.
Among the new features, the new ranged attack should scare the Kikimeter away from players looking for the lowest risk effectiveness. Armed with a telescope, the soldier targets a titan several meters away for a few seconds to unleash a blistering attack that knocks this flesh and blood giant to the ground in one strike. Nevertheless, beware of them. As clumsy as they are, these monsters respond and give Men a hard time. It is never good to stay in their field of vision. A detection gauge warns the player. Once filled, the titan shakes its tons, awakens its senses and enters a rage mode giving it speed, agility and increased awareness of its surroundings.
To overcome these, our unknown soldier can count on his comrades of misfortune to survive on the battlefield. Up to four NPCs (non-playable characters) follow you and form a formidable squad capable of taking down a titan or using various abilities, from a devastating or combined attack to the capture of a titan. Eradicating all of these creatures is not always the answer, and Attack On Titan 2 Mobile invites players to study them and unlock new equipment after a battery of tests on these guinea pigs. Indeed, the appearance, type and nature of these titans vary greatly.
Small, medium, large and especially deviant “gluttonous” humanity with insistence. Deviants require an action plan to eliminate them. There is no need to go after their necks before attacking their weak points marked with a green aura. Once this area has been silenced, the titan is at your mercy for a short period of time that must be used to turn his neck into a bloody slice. And apocalyptic adventurers will get their money’s worth. Beyond Attack On Titan 2 Mobile the 18-hour solo campaign, exploration missions and especially the Bonus mode extend the lifespan exponentially. The Bonus mode allows players to spin online and participate in various cooperative or competitive missions with other players, proving their superiority on the ground and in the air. And for the most hardened, the Gehenna mode will give you a challenge that will match your warrior predispositions.
The Power Of Friendship
The great principle of the Shonen and to a lesser extent of the Seinen, friendship and its saving power in unfavourable times serve here as an anchor point for the implemented RPG mechanics. The rise in power of your avatar is once again reflected in a gain of experience and levels unlocking skill points and significantly increasing the hero’s statistics (Strength, Agility, Dexterity, Concentration, Authority and Health). However, unlike other games in the genre, new passive or active abilities are acquired by building relationships with other members of the Exploration Battalion. Meeting the expectations and aspirations of your comrades, conversing silly and simply on subjects as diverse as varied… the art of discussion is an integral part of an experience centred on the daily life of these exceptional soldiers.
At the heart of the action, the dreaded power of friendship sets the battlefield ablaze. The higher your affinity with the members of the squad, the more effective your partner actions will be against the titans. One for all, and all for one. Being one with others is necessary. However, your acts of bravery make all the difference. Fulfilling your duty with devotion, completing exploration missions… gives you the “Wings of Freedom” units needed to administer the battalion with simple directives (training, rest…) and other improvements to the bases used on the battlefield. And features that improve your combat effectiveness are abundant. Capturing titans grants your new equipment (incendiary bombs…) and the craft gives you access to new equipment (blades, scabbards…) if you collect the right resources beforehand.
