Today Koei Tecmo released a new batch of screenshots and artwork of its upcoming anime-inspired action game Attack on Titan 2.
The new characters introduced are Thomas Wagner, Mina Carolina, Nile Dawk, Marlo, and Hitch. This brings the total of playable characters to twenty-five, with five more to be revealed down the line.
Below you can read a quick summary for each.

Attack on Titan 2 will launch in March 2018 worldwide, but there is no actual date set in stone for now. It’ll come for PS4, PS Vita, Switch and Steam in Japan, while the western market will skip the now-agonizing PS Vita, and get an Xbox One version instead.
