Full disclosure here: I’ve seen the entire first season of the Attack on Titan anime series, but I haven’t read the manga at all. So, suffice to say, this new launch trailer has me feeling a little lost, but no less excited. Koei Tecmo has just released the launch trailer for the upcoming video game adaptation from Omega Force, and you can check it out below.
The trailer shows off some nice footage of the colossal and armored titans – both of which we haven’t actually seen a lot of in the first season of the anime. We also get a glimpse of a dark-haired gorilla-looking titan chasing Levi on a horse. Overall, the game still looks pretty damn awesome, and from what I played at E3 this year, it’s certainly a nice 3D representation of the popular manga series.
‘Showcasing the Scout Regiment as they repel the fearsome Titans threatening humanity, the launch trailer for Attack on Titan officially reveals that players will be able to play beyond the end of the show’s first season via extra game-exclusive missions! Capturing intense, action-packed combat and impressive attack moves, the launch trailer reveals two sinister new types of Titans for players to take down. The Armored Titan, a 50 foot tall behemoth with immense strength and speed can destroy anything in its path, and the monstrous Beast Titan is a gigantic ape-like creature that uses immeasurable amounts of force to crush its foes! These extra missions offer additional high-octane battles and exhilarating action within the Attack on Titan universe.’
Ah, I guess it’s called the beast titan, then? Makes sense.
Attack on Titan is set to be released for the PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on August 30.
