Take down Titans with The Last Wings of Mankind.

Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind, Spike Chunsoft’s upcoming 3DS game, will launch in Japan on December 5, this week’s Famitsu confirms.

Here are some details:

  • It’s an action game.
  • If you get eaten by a Titan you fail the mission and get a game over.
  • The game aims to recreate the feeling of speed from the anime. You’ll be able to make free use the 3D Maneuver Gear in battle.
  • There is four-player multiplayer. You can create and train your characters.
  • NPCs will accompany you on each mission. If they’re captured by a Titan, you can save them by cutting off their arm.
  • Story Mode follows the anime’s story, and Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and such are playable.

Thanks, Sinobi.

    Ellen??? wtf dude…lol

  • Leon_Tekashi

    So…Eren decided to change his gender? lol

  • Eclipse

    Lol, Ellen’s quite the badass, huh? ;)

    • Sal Romano

      It’s funny how I mess that up, considering I watch the show.

      I guess it’s cause I’m always hearing Ellen when they call his name.

      danm it’s 1 AM and this just made me laugh a bit too loud

  • Zancrow

    Sounds good. I imagine it to be Monster Hunter-ish.
    And with the success of SnK, which will no doubt continue when the Anime is released outside of Japan, I think we might even get this game.

    • GhostNomad

      Honestly I was hoping for a Vita version since I can only imagine how awesome this game would look, if done right. That said, I definitely agree with the MH comment. First thing that came to my mind when I read the article. I’m trying not to have high hopes for this (since I have strong doubts it’ll get localized), but the addiction is real >.>

  • bloodiOS

    Edit: The name is fixed but er, I hope this flops regardless.

    • GhostNomad

      Bad Bloodios. BAD! How dare you wish failure upon AoT?! I should steal a PS4 Devkit and plant it in your house >8[

      • bloodiOS

        *LOL* It would seem that I had too much beef jerky today. And my inner jerk demands that all Attack on Titan cash-in games not being released on home consoles are deserved to burn in a fire.

        • GhostNomad

          While I do wish it was on a PS3 for obvious reasons, I’M LOOKING AT THIS IN A GOOD WAY. If this game proves to be a success, maybe they’ll port it/create a better one for home consoles! Now stop stealing meat and let Sasha have it instead.

          • bloodiOS

            I love the look on her face when she looks at me chewing on the meat that she can’t chew on. Also, if this is successful, they will simply slice more meat for the 3DS. I refuse to look at them meat being soiled like this.

            • GhostNomad

              Stop it. Your negativity is catchy. SHARE MEAT WITH SASHA!

              This conversation just took a sharp left in my mind and now I think I need to smoke again to distract myself >.> STOP SHARING YOUR MEAT WITH SASHA! Leave that for certain websites!

              • bloodiOS

                Yeah, she needs more bread anyhow.

                • GhostNomad

                  She needs more protein so she can bulk up and FITE DA POWAH. But then she might be too heavy for the 3D gear <.< Totally unrelated but I'm gonna steal your 3D gear because [insert spoilers here, yeah, that one, you know what i'm talkin' about].

                  • bloodiOS

                    Sure, I’ll give you the gears and uniform, don’t need them when I reach for the sky anyhow.

                    • GhostNomad

                      YOU GO GURL. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS.

                      I’m just gonna be over here going naked Spider-man all over the place since your uniform is far too small for me.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Naked Spidey, huh? What’s shooting out from your hands if I may ask?

                    • GhostNomad

            TBH, it’s more likely to stay on the platform where it’s successful from.

            “BOMBA” iterations more likely get “Up-Ported”.

            • GhostNomad

              As long as it looks good and plays good on the system it’s being released for, I personally don’t care whether or not it’s a port.

  • Budgiecat

    Chance for localization? Funimation airs the show here yes?

  • Arcana Gear

    Cool, i would like more modes, like a speed run with Annie ;D

    • Arcana Gear

      but definitly picking this. If ever comes here.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    3DS: Monster Hunter, Pokemon, One Piece, SnK and good marketing
    Vita: God Eater 2, otaku games. and not so good marketing
    This doesn’t even look like a fair competition at all

    • Elvick

      Probably because your comparison isn’t a fair one.

      Go figure. Why you even compared them in this topic is beyond me… well it’s not, dat trollin’, but you could find better use for that time.

      • Ni ~Algidus~

        yeah, pointing out that a system is getting huge support with strong franchises (specially when one of the said franchise is in the article one) is trolling now. I like my my vita and the games that bought for it, but it doesn’t change the fact that while sony is pushing the market for it lately there’s still lack of huge mass appeling franchises for it.

        • Elvick

          Um, you brought up Vita. Which this article has nothing to do with.

          If you couldn’t figure out that was my point, then I already know this is going no where. So I’m done.

    • Kefkiroth

      I don’t care about the sales of either. All that matters is that both handhelds gets games I want. It feels good to own both.

      • Ni ~Algidus~

        I own both and i agree with your opinion. but lack of mass appeal can really hurt a console

    • almostautumn

      Fortunately I like good games that are not the same ones I played in the year 1990 and so I agree: the vita really is a substantially more prevalent machine.

      …but for real; whatever about Nintendo hitting the mass-market. It sucks for Vita but that does not diminish from the Vita as a machine as well as the software that is built specifically for that (substancially more powerful) device. In the end; yes, it sucks that there is probably going to be a frequency of droughts throughout the Vita life-spans, but, in the end, I will gladly, and always, take the releases of titles like Gravity Rush and Killzone Merc over, again, the very same titles that I have played in the past.
      As for 3rd party support— I mean, I don’t even get bothered by that because, alike the Vita, the 3DS boasts a library double the size in Japan— except, unlike the Vita, it’s region-locked. Therefore— well, have fun NOT playing any of those games 3DS gamers, while I WILL have fun playing them on the Vita.

      I don’t mean to sound a console-war idiot, but really; with a comment like yours it’s pretty ridiculous. “Comparing” the 3DS and Vita is just as ignorant as comparing the DS and PSP; both systems are substancially different from one another that both offer eclectic libraries. In the end, people with have their “For and Against” with either, as I’ve with the Vita, but the overall truth is that, if you can only own and/or afford one system, than that doesn’t justify funneling in an entire other system’s library of equally eclectic games as some sort-of fodder for fanboy-fanaticism; it means just shut your mouth and enjoy the handheld you have, and maybe, if you really like the other one, save up and someday own both and become ‘above’ the nonsensical console-debate and recognize, indeed, and again, the equally eclectic libraries available for both systems individually.

      Good Marketing? I doubt that’s really relevant as MH, OP and SnK are automatically huge brand names. There’s your “good marketing”.

      “Otaku Games”? It’s not like the 3DS isn’t getting those either:

      HS DxD
      Super Sonico

      Fair competition? I doesn’t seem the VITA’s an “actual competitor” at this point in terms of market share and commercial success. Technically it is buy you know what I mean.

      It’s becoming more niche (entering the set-top-box/digibox) and doing it’s own thing (Ports, Indies and PS4 accessory -mostly).

  • fyi1191

    Levi the Fabulous better be playable.

  • Gojira Twit

    I like how it needs to be made clear that getting eaten is failure.
