KOEI TECMO America revealed today an exciting and transformative feature of Attack on Titan, the epic action game based on the worldwide anime hit by the same name, alongside an explosive new trailer and screenshots. Scheduled for launch on August 30, 2016, the game will be released on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, as well as digital-only on the PlayStation Vita handheld system, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and PC via Steam.
Following the plot-twisting events of the hugely successful anime series Attack on Titan, players will be able to take control of protagonist Eren’s powerful Titan form and get up close and personal with the eerily human-like creatures! Transforming into this titanic beast replaces Eren’s ODM gear and blades with fists. A first English language demo featuring this game-changing ability will be present at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 in Los Angeles from June 14 – 16.
KOEI TECMO America also released a new gameplay trailer showcasing the newly-revealed feature’s unique play-style! This action-packed new trailer features Eren’s explosive transformation, as well as the game’s main playable characters, and focuses on the fast-paced battles, towering Titans, and claustrophobic atmosphere of Attack on Titan. A variety of new screenshots were also released today, showcasing a selection of the stages where players will fight against the Titans; from the evacuated streets of the Stohess District to the open plains outside of the walls!
