Regarding a Treasure Box edition outside of Europe, a representative for Koei Tecmo of America told Gematsu: “At this time we have nothing to announce in regards to a limited edition for Attack on Titan for North America.”

New gameplay details follow:

The Omni-Directional Mobility Gear is featured as a key gameplay element within Attack on Titan. Players are able to utilize the gear to quickly traverse the environment and to aid them in slaying Titans. However, players will need to monitor their gas tank levels as they use the ODM gear. Gas will deplete as players fly through the environment, though additional gas tanks can be carried to quickly replenish gas levels. In addition, as players fight using their blades their durability will deteriorate. Replacing blades is an important tactic to weakening and slaying the Titans and should be executed quickly to guarantee that effective damage is dealt.

Titans can be weakened by attacking their limbs. As players use the Omni-Directional Mobility Gear to latch onto Titans, they are able to aim at which limb they wish to attack. For the killing blow, players will want to aim for the nape of the Titans neck—their critical weak spot—to ensure optimal damage.

As players fight the Titans they will not be alone. Up to four non-playable characters can be recruited to fight alongside the player, and can be commanded to carry out attacks, offering different ways to approach the oncoming Titans.

Attack on Titan is due out physically and digitally for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and digitally for PC, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita on August 30 in North America and August 26 in Europe (as A.O.T. WIngs of Freedom).
