Koei Tecmo have posted a teaser video on its official YouTube page about the New Attack on Titan video game.
Attack on Titan is a manga series by the mangaka Hajime Isayama. This manga have reached global audience with great success; it has many different adaptations (anime, movies, games, novels…etc).
The latest available game adaptation -Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains- has been highly criticized for its repetitive combat techniques, unnecessary missions, and terrible camera views. However, the new game promises a different approach which will offer a much better experience for the players.
The protagonist of the series (Eren Yeager) will join the army along with his childhood friends (Mikasa and Armin) to avenge his mother who was brutally killed by a Titan. But, the developers haven’t clarified just yet whether the players will have to play as Eren Yeager or guide the entire army in the upcoming Attack on Titan Game.
However, we know that the producer Koinuma has promised will not be merely a fight game as the older ones; it will be much more as the players will have to re-enact the story. It will be an action game that will cover the manga from its very beginning.
Furthermore, the upcoming game will be developed by Omega Force, the studio that created Dinasty Warriors Gundam games. This studio is famous for its beautiful cinematic combats where brave warriors have to fight against flows of enemies. But, this time it will be different as the dynamics will be reversed; armies of human soldiers will combat against single Titan.
The design of the upcoming game will be based on cel shading technique which means that the 3D graphics will seem more flat compared to the usual designs as this technique aims to mimic the comic book style.
The game will be released in Japan this winter and will be globally released in 2016. The original platform will be PS4. However, it will be released for PS3 and Vita as well.

All we can do now is wait and see how this new game will unfold. Let’s hope it’s a better adaptation than its disappointing predecessors.
