ESH | Omnidirectional Fun in ‘Attack on Titan’

Turn­ing any kind of licensed series into a video game always seems like a ver­i­ta­ble mine­field of expec­ta­tions from both fans and license hold­ers. Land­ing that per­fect bal­ance isn’t impos­si­ble, but it’s usu­ally the excep­tion and not the rule. Since it first hit my radar, Attack on Titan has always seemed like it would be a per­fect fit for the trans­la­tion into a video game. The Omni­di­rec­tional Gear of the the show looked like a ton of fun to blast around a world and slice the napes of some giant’s necks. There have been some unsuc­cess­ful attempts prior to Koei Tecmo’s Attack on Titan game, but finally the series has been done jus­tice and there is a fun game set in the uni­verse of the acclaimed anime series.

E3 2016 | Attack on Titan

Admit­tedly being a fairly casual fan of anime, Attack on Titan man­aged to be big enough to cap­ture even my atten­tion when it came over here. The way the char­ac­ters move when they bat­tle and the mys­te­ri­ous­ness of the giant naked titans dom­i­nat­ing the world is an intrigu­ing premise in itself. It’s one of those shows that just seems ripe for a video game adap­ta­tion, so you can put your­self in the shoes of the Sur­vey Corps as they fight against the ter­ri­fy­ing giants, slash­ing their necks as they swoop by using their Ver­ti­cal Maneu­ver­ing Equip­ment. There have been many false starts on get­ting a good game, but it looks like Koei Tecmo may finally be giv­ing us the game that will do the series justice.
