As we learned from the Nintendo Direct, Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains for the 3DS, developed by Spike Chunsoft of Danganronpa fame, is getting localized by Atlus and will come to European and North American regions in May 2015. For those who wonder what Attack on Titan is all about (read: those who live under a rock), the anime’s first two episodes are available for free on the eShop.
The game will make use of the New Nintendo 3DS’s C-stick, and the press release details the following features:
- “Story Mode: As a member of the elite Scout Regiment, defending the outer walls from the Titans will push players to their very limits to save humanity. Enhanced Titan AI behavior will sap every ounce of ability from players as they make a last stand for the human race.
- Familiar Characters, New Customizations: Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackermann and others will be familiar faces for players as they pick their favorite Scout member to defend the Walls. Several new additions will join the Scout Regiment, customizable with costumes, weapons and voices.
- Online Co-op Mode: Defend the outer walls with up to three friends in the all-new online co-op mode with ranking and leaderboards.
- Fresh Look: Updates to the UI, improvements in gameplay balance and support for the Circle Pad Pro and the New Nintendo 3DS XL system’s C-Stick take Humanity in Chains to the next level.”
There are no details on the pricing or yet, but we’ll know soon, seeing as it comes out next month.
