Japan's grizzly sci-fi action manga is getting a video game adaptation.

Following in the footsteps of the hit manga series, Attack on Titan, the manga series that has bug-powered humans fighting giant Martian cockroaches,Terraformars is getting its own 3DS game.

Labeled as a single-player "3D battle action" genre game, Terraformars: Battle on the Crimson Star is scheduled for release in Spring of 2015.

A teaser image released by Weekly Famitsu shows one of the terraformers – a giant hyper-evolved bipedal cockroach – battling the character, Michelle. If I were to guess, the image looks to be more of a cutscene or a QTE event rather than actual gameplay. The game is being developed by Furyu and a teaser site for the game is up.

Hopefully the game won't be as blatantly censored as the anime is.
