Attack on Titan is an anime favourite around the office here at Dealspwn and we strongly urge you to watch the harrowing series on Netflix. We also strongly urge you to avoid the rather messy 3DS game.
Tecmo Koei and Omega Force are bringing the series to PlayStation though in 2016 and this brief teaser trailer has a cool handdrawn art style that we’re hoping is going to be replicated in the final game. Visually, it reminds us of Valkyria Chronicles, but with more blood and despair.
We do feel for any developer working on the Attack on Titan license as the dramatic battles involving a Spider-Man-esque movement system (but with much sharper turns) as hunters try to outmanoeuvre giant Titans in order to attack their weak spots must be incredibly hard to put into action, with the camera alone being a significant obstacle.

Attack on Titan is one of the most popular new names in manga/anime right now and we’re rather excited about the new game. But also a bit nervous as the complex action could be a tough test for the 3DS to handle. For those of you that haven’t seen the anime (it’s on UK Netflix, so get it sorted), it features humans taking on huge Titan enemies that keep breaching city walls to nom all the humans. Using your ODM (Omni-directional Mobility) Gear you use wired hooks to fly around a level in a manner not a million miles away from Spider-Man.
It’s not clear how much control you’ll have in the final game over movement, but it would seem that the critical strikes are QTE’s with timed strikes required via timing circles indicating the best time to hit the button. If players are given manual control over movement, we hope the camera is up to the job, as anyone that has seen the show will attest, the Scout Titan killers move very quickly and change direction to dizzying effect. 4-player co-op will be included with online and local options, which sounds fantastic if we’re honest and the game seems to be shaping up way better than we imagined.
