Defeat Titans in Spike Chunsoft's upcoming 3DS game. has gone up with its online preview of Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind, coming to 3DS in Japan on December 5 for 6,090 yen.

The action game follows Eren Yeager and the Survey Corps as they defeat Titans. The 3D Manuever Gear aims to replicate the freedom and high-speed movement shown in the anime. Getting eaten by a Titan will result in a mission failure, and if a companion is in trouble, you can save them by cutting of the Titan’s arm. In Story Mode, you can select to play as Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, or Armin Arlert. There is also a multiplayer mode, where up to four players can play with customized characters.

    Doesn’t look bad, actually. I hope they can do the show justice.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Grafix look good but I need to see this in action.

  • EX+

    I’m kinda confused as to why they didn’t make this on the PS4/Wii U.
    They would’ve been able to run much more titans on screen, have more control over the camera, a larger sense of speed due to better visuals and a more intricate multiplayer. Imagine if you could play a 20 player battle against a Titan invasion with customised characters. Or even an online story mode.
    Next time I guess.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Budget probably. Though I do agree with what you said. PS4’s kinda pushing it though, maybe just PS3/Wii-U/360(current gen) for now.

    • Sal Romano

      I agree it would probably be a much more awesome experience on consoles, but consider this:

      1) PS4 isn’t out – no user base yet
      2) Wii U sales suck
      3) Attack on Titan is a very popular anime
      4) 3DS is selling like hotcakes

      PlayStation 3 would have been a feasible console option, but again, sales-wise, 3DS has much more momentum. If you’ve been following the weekly sales charts, you’ll see 3DS on top almost every time.

      • EX+

        Yeah you’re 100% right. I’m not saying that I won’t pick this game up, I’m just saying that it’s a bit strange. But I guess marketing strategies matter when it comes to what platform you’re making the game on.

      • TheGameTagerZ

        Plus 3DS is easier to develop for than the PS3.

      • Budgiecat

        Yeah but S-E is banking on success with pushing FF XV to PS4 when PS3 already has an established userbase.

        PS3 not being easy to develop for is an old excuse.

    • GhostNomad

      As much as I can hope for the best, my guess is that it would’ve cost a hell of a lot more to develop for home consoles as opposed to a handheld. And while the game would’ve probably handled (and looked) better on a Vita, the sad fact is that 3DS has a MUCH bigger user base.

      The only thing I can hope for now is that this game turns out to be a hot seller and with increased demand for SnK, someone decides to make better games (performance-wise) for home consoles (current or next gen, either way).

  • Nice Boat

    Nice! I wonder how is the camera going to work considering how big is the enemy.

  • fyi1191

    Play as Armin. Hey scouter, what’s his power level again?!
    And it looks like every character (male&female) will have the same idle pose?

    • Nice Boat

      This joke has been used over 9000 times! It’s losing appeal

      • Charlottes Guardian

        Losing its appeal? Thats impossible!

        • Mr Fwibbles

          There’s no way that could be right!

  • Fainaru Luna

    hopefully they will show gameplay at tgs

  • Keegs79

    I saw this on PSN? Is this anime good?

    • César H. Sandoval

      Best anime of the season.

    • Anime10121

      Better than good :D

    • Zackasaur

      It’s incredibly good. You should definitely get into it.

      The manga is good, too.

  • $30632660

    I neeeeeeed footage!

  • Arcana Gear

    Looks really good…. but i still want to do a speed run with annie ;D

  • Sal Romano

    There should be a Sasha mini-game where you eat potatoes.

  • Zackasaur

    Eh, I need to see this in motion. In fact, I’m not sure I’m sold without going hands-on. They’re talking about a pretty complex combat concept for the limited 3DS to handle very well.

    But maybe they’re clever and figured it out!

    I’m just… Skeptical. But, as a concept, I totally want to play a good Attack on Titan game.

  • Alex TSi

    Look bit strange – need video.
    P.S: Anime is great !!!

  • Elvick

    Looks a little goofy to me. Hopefully they nail animation. That’s more important to me.

  • Marco Tinè

    … destructible environments, anyone?

  • Omega_Shiro

    Remember the 3ds is (somewhat) a tiny Wii it could handle it but wondering if it can fit so many titans and what the render distance will be for the titans. I would hate to speed up out in open to only suddenly see and fly into a titan’s mouth…Anyway looks good will it be a head or behind the anime/manga do you think? There are a few issues with that factor..
