Attack on Titan
The inevitable video game iteration of one of the hottest anime series in recent times has finally made its way to the west. Attack on Titan is brought to the 3DS with Humanity in Chains, a game that promises to capture the action-packed essence of the anime all while failing at everything it attempts to do.
It has been recently announced that Atlus was developing an Attack on Titan title for the 3DS, and little tidbits just keep on coming. Just today Atlus released some startling new GIFs which show that their adaptation of the hit anime series will not shy away from the brutality and gore of its source material. The GIFs can be viewed here.
Anime, like comic books and video games, has often found itself on the absolute fringe of nerd culture. When someone isn’t into anime, it’s almost impossible to get them to give it a try with an open mind–and that’s really too bad, because they’re depriving themselves of some really spectacular stuff like Attack on Titan.
