Koei Tecmo has debuted the first screenshots from Attack on Titan, the "tactical hunting game" for PlayStation based on Hajime Isayama’s hit manga.
The images arrive courtesy of the Japanese magazine Famitsu, which reveals that 50 percent of the game is complete. According to Koei Tecmo executives Hisashi Koinuma and Tomoyuki Kitamura, much of the focus has been on making flight, through the manga's signature 3D maneuver gear, as fun as possible, with the controls rewarding both newcomers and skilled gamers.
And while the story will be faithful to the original, it won't merely mimic the manga; the goal is to make the game capable of standing on its own.
Developed by Omega Force, the Koei Tecmo subsidiary behind the Warriors series, the Attack on Titan game is set to debut this winter in Japan on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, with North American and European release to follow.
