After months of speculation, it's finally been confirmed that 'Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains', the 3DS game that lets you play out the action of the hit anime series, is finally coming to the US.
Developed by Spike Chunsoft in Japan, the game is finally seeing a (presumably digital only) release in America by Atlus USA. The game will allow you to play alone or with others online as you try to stop the Titan threat. For those unaware of what Attack on Titan is, here's a brief synopsis courtesy of AnimeNewsNetwork.
“Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giant beings known as Titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by enclosing themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of Titans. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super Titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller Titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single Titan and take revenge for all of mankind.”
While various sources on the game seem to say different things as to how good the game is and exactly what all you get to do, it seems you get to play as various characters from the series, and (this is unable to be confirmed at the moment) possibly as a created avatar character.
We'll try to keep you posted as more information on the game, such as if the anime's dub cast will be recording audio for the game or not, as it becomes available!
