As someone who is an fairly avid anime fan, I have to say Attack on Titan is one of the best of the genre I’ve seen in a long, long time. If you’ve never seen it, I highly recommend checking it out on either Hulu or Netflix (be forewarned though, it is a brutal and violent series and much like Game of Thrones, has little issue killing off beloved characters).
Of course while games based on anime get released in Japan all the time, even for the more popular ones we rarely see a release outside of Japan (unless they are ones geared towards kids like Digimon and Beyblade).
So with that mind, it’s pretty exciting that Silicon Era is claiming that developer Spike Chunsoft is trying to bring Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind, which is a 3DS action game based on the popular anime, to the West.
This along with the upcoming western release of Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment gives me some hope that we might actually see a regular slate of releases based on some the better anime of the last couple years. It’s unlikely, but a well-done PS4 version of Attack on Titan would be amazing.
What do you think, Gamesided readers? Excited about the possibility of more anime-based games coming west? Which ones would you like to see? Let us know in the comments!
