I’ve been off the dreaded Anime dope for quite a few years now, but I recently relapsed when I saw a snippet of Attack on Titan. It’s one of the best shows that I’ve seen in recent years, and doesn’t rely on a protaganist who is a combination of deadly fighting skills, insane hunger pangs and borderline retarded IQ stats. And now, it’s getting a game.
Speaking to the Anime News Network, Attack on Titan producer George Wada confirmed that a game would be debuting within a year, for a 2014 release. And that’s about it. There’s no clue what kind of game it’ll be, or even what platform it’ll launch on.
Knowing Japan, I’m expecting the title to be a dating sim where you romance the creepy-faced giants on a tablet device. If you’ haven’t checked the show out yet, make a plan. It’s got great animation, plenty of twists and some fantastic action as humanity finds itself staring down both barrels of an extinction shotgun, thanks to a recent influx of unstoppable giants with a taste for flesh.
Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
