Update 12/05/17 at 1:10 a.m.: Here are details on the new characters, via the game’s official website:
Reiner Braun (voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya)
A graduate of the 104th Cadet Corps wherein he graduated second of his year ranking below Mikasa. Along with Bertholdt, he is one of the few survivors of a Titan attack that befell his village in the southeastern area of Wall Maria. He believes that one day, he will once again step foot into his hometown together with Berthodlt. He is highly skilled with the omni-directional mobility gear complemented by his impressive physical strength. He has a strong sense of responsibility as a soldier leading other members of the 104th to hold him in high regard.
Bertholdt Hoover (voiced by Tomohisa Hashizume)
A graduate of the 104th Cadet Corps wherein he graduated third of his year ranking below Reiner. Along with Reiner, he is one of the few survivors of a Titan attack that befell his village in the southeastern area of Wall Maria. He believes that one day, he will once again step foot into his hometown together with Reiner. Despite being highly talented, he is somewhat lacking in resolve and will rarely assert his presence among the 104th. Although not as driven as Reiner to achieve his goals, he fulfilled his goal of graduating from the Cadet Corps and earning the privilege of entering the Military Police Regiment.
Annie Leonhart (voiced by Yu Shimamura)
A graduate of the 104th Cadet Corps wherein she graduated fourth of her year. Although the details are ambiguous, it is said her father drilled into her the close-quarters combat skills and her notable kicking technique that earned her a spot among the top graduates. With her rank, she earned and made use of the privilege to enter the Military Police Regiment though her reasons are unknown. She is always silent, rarely speaking on a personal level even with her fellow cadets, and is completely uncooperative with others despite her valuable skills.
