We saw bits and pieces of the latest Attack on Titan game from Koei Tecmo and Omega Force when the game was announced last month, but nothing really substantial. The latest trailer doesn’t really have much to offer, particularly when it comes to gameplay, but it does give another great look at the titans as well as some actual titan slaying. It’s worth noting, however, that it’s only the first preview. There will of course be more to come in the future!
Based on the footage in the trailer below, it certainly looks like they’ve nailed the titan combat, but it’ll be a while yet before we get our hands on the game here in North America. If you weren’t excited by the 3DS games in the franchise, maybe this will give you something to look forward to. For me, that certainly seems to be the case. I’ve talked about how my love for Attack on Titan is quickly fading, thanks in part to the large number of spin-offs. But if this new game can actually recreate the look and feel of the anime and manga, then they’ll definitely have a winner on their hands.
It’s nice to see a more realistic and less stylized take on the franchise in the video game world, but what really matters at the end of the day is how well the game plays. Still, it’s looking good, and when you’re dealing with adapting an existing property, that’s always a good thing.
The Attack on Titan game will be available for the PS3, PS4, and Vita in Japan this Winter. The rest of us will have to wait until next year. Bummer!Tweet
