Cryptozoic Entertainment will release a board game based on the hit manga and anime Attack on Titan.
Designed by Antoine Bauza and Ludovic Maublanc (Terror in Meeple City) and produced with Don't Panic, the game employs a new mechanic, in which the Titan piece is a vertical element, and the hero pieces climb in an effort to topple him.
Prototypes were demonstrated over the weekend at Anime Expo in Los Angeles and at Japan Expo in Paris. The game is targeted for release in 2016.
Debuting in 2009, Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan is a post-apocalyptic fantasy set in a world where remorseless, flesh-eating giants have all but wiped out humanity, whose remnants are forced to live within a country surrounded by three enormous walls. The series has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide and inspired a hit television anime (which has also been adapted for theatrical release), light novels and two upcoming live-action films.
