Koei Tecmo has unveiled eight minutes of gameplay footage from its Attack on Titan video game, which it turns out will draw from the hit anime series rather than from the original manga or the live-action films.
Speaking with Kotaku at the Tokyo Game Show, where the footage debuted, Koei Tecmo games president Hisashi Koinuma revealed that adapting Attack on Titan has proved to be a difficult task.
“Showing the scale between the Titans and the humans has been tricky,” he conceded. “Also, it’s been tricky to show how the characters move around through the air with the Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear."
However, as the gameplay footage shows, Koei Tecmo appears to have figured that out, as Eren moves fluidly both on the ground and threw the air, making relatively quick work of a Titan.
The Attack on Titan game will debut this winter in Japan for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, and arrive next year in North America and Europe.
