The anime adaptation of the Attack on Titan manga was one of last year’s most popular series. The franchise spawned a rather successful 3DS title for Japan, which may end up state-side later this year.
Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind was released last December for the Nintendo 3DS. Players can take control of several characters from the anime/manga in both single-player and multi-player arena style combat; movement is based on using the 3D Maneuver Gear to grapple onto objects in order to zip-line and slingshot around the environment, and onto Titans.
While The Last Wings of Mankind was released as a Japanese-exclusive title, a PC-exclusive fan-game (i.e. browser game running in Unity) was created last year for Attack on Titan lovers worldwide. While it may be cartoonish in nature, the fan-project features intense, skill-based combat that weighs heavy on precision-attacks and mastery of the 3D Maneuver Gear.
According to the Japanese-gaming-focused site Siliconera, Spike Chunsoft is planning on taking The Last Wings of Mankind overseas to North America; Spike is looking for a new publisher in order to proceed with a localized release.
Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind sold more than 240,000 copies as of last February. The first season of Attack on Titan can be viewed in its entirety on Neflix, Hulu and Crunchyroll; the English version by Funimation is currently airing on Toonami during Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim”.
