If there’s one thing you do a lot of in the new Attack on Titan game, it’s slaughter titans.
Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind was released in Japan just over a year ago. When I looked at it, the biggest problem was that the majority of the game was designed for local co-op—and I lacked three friends interested in playing it. Luckily, in this year’s updated release, the co-op is now playable online.
Last year we covered Japan's first 3DS game based on anime juggernaut Attack on Titan. This past week the game received an updated release called Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind -Chain-. So join me now as we give it a try and kill some giant Titans live for the world to see.
This past weekend saw the release of the first Attack on Titan compilation movie—Attack on Titan: The Crimson Bow and Arrow. And while viewers of the anime will have seen everything in this film before, the movie does manage to address the series' largest flaw: the pacing.
The first time I saw the opening to Attack on Titan—with the cast swinging through the city and killing a titan—my first thought was, “this would make for one hell of a video game.” And while Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind does indeed make me feel awesome, it is a game that is far from polished.
Back in October, we took a look at the seven official Attack on Titan games coming out in Japan. Of these, four are visual novels included on the Japanese Blu-rays. Of course, if you can’t speak Japanese, there’s a good chance you’ll never be able to experience these side stories—until now, that is.
If you think about it, the world of the popular anime Attack on Titan, where people live behind giant walls, would fit into Civilization V really well. So it was only a matter of time that someone added Eren Jaeger of The Walls as a civilization for the game.
Almost five months ago I called Attack on Titan one of the must see anime of the spring season. Three months ago, I said it was good, but didn’t live up to its own potential. And as for my final verdict? It’s definitely worth watching, though still not quite perfect.
Someone just built a really amazing, functional replica of the three-dimensional maneuver gear from the popular anime series Attack on Titan. All the cool parts—the handgrips, the grapple-hooks, even the gas powered mechanisms—are working and demonstrated in the video.
Aside from some visual novel side stories, there is no official video game for the hot new anime series Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) yet, so Second Life builder Moeka Kohime decided to make one of her own. How’d she do?
The anime adaptation of Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese) debuted early this April, and it has a powerful opening. Users of the Japanese website Nico Nico Douga jumped on it immediately and made crazy awesome remixes.
