If your 3D maneuver gear is running on fumes, you better gas up now partner! This morning we got our first look at gameplay from the Attack on Titan PlayStation title, which features Eren Jaeger and company wreaking cel-shaded havoc on a slew of creey-faced, genital-less behemoths. And who better than the voice of Captain Levi (US dub) himself, Matt Mercer, to breakdown this game trailer as our guest host for today’s Nerdist News!
While the upcoming Attack on Titan game from Omega Force and Koei Tecmo is not the anime/manga franchise’s first venture into video games, it is shaping up to be far beyond anything the 3DS title, Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, could have hoped to be. Not much was unveiled about the upcoming game when Tecmo first announced its development other than some concept art and the quickest glimpse of gameplay. Well, now a new trailer has been released for the game, and we finally get a better look at the gameplay we can expect. It looks amazing! While the previous 3DS game seemed to rely on quick-time events for combat against Titans, this new console title offers up highly fluid-looking movement and some brutally intense action.
Unless you have are fluent in Japanese, the trailer will appear to be lot of title cards you can’t read, mixed with a few pieces of cinematic and gameplay footage. Even that is enough to ramp up the hype for this game. The style of the anime is kept intact for the game, and is even heightened by the cell-shading aesthetic. The quick movements of the 3D maneuver device, and the excessive amounts of blood produced by slashing Titans, make this game appear as if players are being transplated directly into the wildly popular anime. The game is expected to release exclusively to Sony’s Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita consoles in Japan around holiday time this year, but it won’t be see out West until 2016, so we still have plenty of time to fawn over imported gameplay and upcoming teaser trailers.
