Attack on Titan game shows off giant-slashing action in new trailer

Koei Tecmo debuted a new trailer for its Attack on Titan game at Tokyo Game Show today, including a first look at gameplay footage.
The trailer shows off protagonist and player character Eren fighting one of the series' titular gigantic monsters. And by "fighting," we really mean "brutally dismembering."
Developed by Omega Force, the team behind the Dynasty Warriors franchise, the game is based on the popular dystopian fantasy manga and anime series. The voice actors from the TV adaptation will go behind the microphone for the game, as well.
Koei Tecmo first announced the game back in August, when they released a brief teaser for it. The publisher's president, Hisashi Koinuma, mentioned then that the studios "hope to reveal more information soon." Details remain scarce, but the new trailer at least suggests the developer's success in translating the series' distinctive art style into 3D.
Attack on Titan will be out for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita sometime in 2016. For more news from TGS 2015, check out our StoryStream.
