'Attack on Titan' game in the works for PlayStation

Keoi Tecmo, the Japanese company behind Dynasty Warriors and One Piece: Pirate Warriors, will release a video game later this year based on Attack on Titan.

The announcement, made on the wraparound jacket band on the 17th volume of Hajime Isayama's bestselling manga, is light on details. According to Anime News Network, the ad states the game will be released for a PlayStation platform, but doesn't specify which one.

A QR code leads the user to the URL gamecity.ne.jp/shingeki, which isn't live (Attack on Titan's name in Japanese is Shingeki no Kyojin, "Advancing Giants").

Last week, Keoi Tecmo launched an online countdown to an announcement that many presumed would be a new Warriors game from its subsidiary Omega Force. In addition to the phrase "This is not 'Warriors,'" that countdown now reads, "Tomorrow, the truth will be revealed."

With more than 50 million copies in print worldwide, Isayama's manga has become a pop-culture phenomenon, spawning a hit anime series (and a spinoff), live-action adaptations, novels and merchandise. A video game, Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, was released in 2013 in Japan, and earlier this year in North America.
