Attack on Titan TACTICS – Personalization

One of the highlights of the game is that each character comes with different roles, leader and specialized skills. Plus each has its unique abilities. To make the experience even better, the original anime voice actors have been used to voice the game characters.

It’s cool to hear their voices again. However screams as the Titans are crushing them may not be what you want to hear. In an immaculate and cerebral move, an agreement was reached with these voice actors to record exclusively for the game. The songs in the game are by Linked Horizon. The same group that sang the theme songs for the first and second season.

Exam for Attack on Titan TACTICS

To make things spicy, there is an exam to determine if you are genuinely ready for Attach on Titans TACTICS. It’s available on the official website and is called a Scout Regiment Entrance Exam.

It also states that all new scenarios and some alternate stories will be made available. These will be exclusive to the game.

For a beginner who has not been introduced to the manga series or the anime, the game itself is beginner-friendly. Knowing each characters strength and abilities give you a leg up. But the age-old process of trial and error can help you go up the ladder very quickly.

Team customization should make the gameplay engaging and fun. DeNA has left no stone unturned to immerse the player in the world of Attack on Titan TACTICS. They have also filled up the roster with fan favorites to minor characters.

Attack on Titan TACTICS – Strategize & Win

From watching your favorite characters fight the mighty Titans, to fighting alongside them and calling the shots. This game is a personal experience.
