One of the most surprising anime hits to come out this year has certainly been Shingeki no Kyojin (known as Attack on Titan overseas). Based on the manga of the same name by Hajima Isayama, it tells the story of a world where humans live in fear of the fearsome “Titans”, whose sole existence is to consume the human population. A magazine scan in Kodansha’s Shounen Magazine shows off a preview of an upcoming Titan game for the Nintendo 3DS. Developed by Spike Chunsoft (makers of Dangan Roppa & Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, 999), the game will recreate the epic 3D-maneuver action seen in anime. Judging from the screenshots, the game will feature series protagonist Eren Jaeger and his friend Armin Arlert among the playable characters as they must rescue fellow allies from Titans.
The game is set to release this year.
The manga is currently being published in the states by Kodansha USA.
The anime is available for streaming at crunchyroll.
