Spike Chunsoft has revealed that a new “Attack on Titan” game is due to come out for the Nintendo 3DS. Seen as a sequel to 2013's “Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains,” the upcoming title will reportedly be known as “Attack on Titan 2: Future Coordinates.”

All this was revealed in a teaser site created by Spike Chunsoft. The first game made its way to the North American and European markets in 2015. With consideration to the timing of the release, seeing “Attack on Titan 2: Future Coordinates” in 2017 may fit according to schedule. Nevertheless, no official release date has been announced for the sequel.

Spike Chunsoft faces a bit of pressure as it tries to brush off criticism toward “Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains." For the benefit of those not familiar with the game (or movie), “Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains” requires gamers to control characters like Eren, Mikasa and Armen as they hunt down giants called Titans, IGN reports.

Aside from that, the Nintendo 3DS received a bit of criticism as well because of the console's limitations. Now, Spike Chunsoft is expected to adjust and make improvements in the sequel, adding that the previous game was decent for players who followed the manga.

Considering that Spike Chunsoft had roughly four years to bulk up their experience in improving games, “Attack on Titans 2: Future Coordinates” should be given the benefit of the doubt. Performance is a premium most would want to see, though the company has had success in other game titles. Among these include the “Danganronpa” games, the “Zero Escape” series and the localization of “The Witcher: Wild Hunt,” reports.

“Attack on Titan 2: Future Coordinates” is anticipated to launch in Japan this year, and an official trailer for the game will reportedly air during an “Attack on Titan" episode. Other information has been limited, though all that could change in the coming months. No word yet on whether the game will be made available in other regions for now.
