Released earlier this year in Japan, Koei Tecmo’s Attack on Titan video game looked like a perfect adaptation of both the manga and anime that would be loved by fans, who were initially disappointed that there was no US release date. Those fears can now be put to rest, as along with releasing a brutal new trailer, they’ve confirmed that it will be stomping onto US shores on August 30th.
From the Press Release:
Following a successful launch in its native Japan, the eagerly anticipated action game will be released on August 30, 2016, across America under the title Attack on Titan.
We also confirmed that Attack on Titan will be available for players to enjoy on a wide selection of consoles and is currently being developed for physical release on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and for digital-only release on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita handheld system, and on PC via Steam®.
Attack on Titan closely follows the riveting storyline of the anime’s first season and focuses on the exploits of various key characters, putting the player in a position to relive its most shocking, courageous, and exhilarating moments. It revolves around the story of three young people who survive the destruction of their walled city district by enormous, man-eating Titans and eventually go on to join the Scout Regiment in order to protect humanity from this overpowering foe.
