Koei Tecmo released a new set of Attack on Titan: Escape from Certain Death today. Find them in the gallery below.

Today’s screenshots cover two aspects of the new Attack on Titan game: exploration and bonds.

The goal is to escape from the basement of an old castle where the player falls after an attack from the titans. Players will explore the castle with other team members, but there are dangers lurking in the form of traps and titans. The reason why the player has to explore the castle is because the 3D Maneuver Gear broke down during the accident so flight is impossible.

Other than obtaining items, there are also quests, where player needs to pick the correct choice within a limited time. If the quest fails, relationships with characters may fall, or it might even lead to a bad ending.

Players can strengthen bonds with characters by choosing the correct actions and words. Even guarded characters may eventually open up their unexpected other side once the bonds are strong enough. However, bonds may also loosen/weaken if the wrong choices are made. There are graphic effects on the character to show the change in bonds. When positive, the character has an energetic blue aura. But if going negative, there will be a depressing purple aura instead.

Level-5 prepared a batch of new Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki videos today. Along with the game’s second trailer, we also have three new commercials. The full set can be found below.

Nyoki Nyoki: Tabidachi Hen was showcased on the latest episode of Denjin Getcha with more footage. Check out the full recording below.
