Atlus U.S.A. is bringing Chunsoft's Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains to North America and Europe. The Nintendo 3DS game is based on the hit Attack on Titan anime and manga, and tasks players with becoming a member of the elite Scout Regiment and defending the three Walls from invading Titans using their omni-directional mobility gear and blades.
Humanity in Chains is based on the upcoming Japanese remake of an earlier Attack on Titan game, and will be the first Attack on Titan video game available in North America.
Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains will be available exclusively on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS in May 2015, and will include the original Japanese audio and English subtitles.
The official announcement was made during a Nintendo Direct presentation. Here's the teaser trailer shown during the event.
Here's the official features list for Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains:
- 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.
