Despite being one of the most popular anime and manga series currently out, Attack on Titan -- like Superman -- has surprisingly failed miserably in the video game arena. However, that could soon change with Koei Tecmo’s tentatively-named ‘Attack on Titan’ game.
Koei Tecmo are the makers of such classics as Dynasty Warriors, Ninja Gaiden, and Dead or Alive series, so they know a thing or two about making fun video games.
Judging by its reveal trailer, their Attack on Titan
game will be completely based on the manga / anime. That is, it is set in a world where humans live in a walled city surrounded by an unsafe wildernesses inhabited by Titans, massive human-like creatures that will eat or kill any human they come across.
You play as a vengeful Eren Yeager
, who after witnessing the death of his mother at the hands of the Smiling Titan, vowed to wipe out all Titans. You will be helped by your friends and fellow members of the Titan-killing Scout regiment.
While no gameplay was shown in the trailer, Koei Tecmo says Attack on Titan
will not be a “Warriors game” but rather an action game, indicating that it might feature the large, heavily-populated battlegrounds found in games like Dynasty Warriors but with a distinct twist.
What do you want to see in the Attack on Titan game when it releases in 2016 for the PS3, PS4, and PS Vita?
