Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains will be released in US on May 12 but it’s been renamed and delayed in Europe

Atlus has announced a final release date for Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains. The game, which is based on the popular anime and manga, will be available to download from the 3DS eShop on May 12. Unfortunately, this release date only applies to Nintendo’s digital store in North America. In Europe, a copyright claim has forced the game to undergo a title change (it’s now known as Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains) and is the cause of an indefinite delay. However, the publisher says they are working to release it “as soon as possible” in Europe.

Atlus also plans to reward players who purchase Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, regardless of which territory they buy it in. The publisher has confirmed that everyone who buys the game in either region will receive an exclusive Attack on Titan 3DS Theme.

Finally, Atlus has released a new character trailer, which has been embedded above, that introduces players to the game’s playable Scouts including Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackermann, Armin Arlelt, Levi, and Sasha Braus.

According to a rating issued by the Australian Classification Board, an Attack on Titan game developed by Spike Chunsoft will soon be published in Australia by Atlus USA. It stands to reason that Atlus USA will also the game in America as well (and possibly Europe too).

The game, Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind, was originally released in Japan last December. Spike Chunsoft plans to release an updated version of the game, Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind CHAIN, in Japan this December. It’s unknown which version of the game is being localized by Atlus, though only the CHAIN edition includes online play and “online connectivity” is included in the Australian Classification Board listing.

Hopefully, Atlus makes an official announcement soon.

Rumor: Attack on Titan 3DS game may be released in US

attackontitan3dsThe Attack on Titan 3DS game may be coming to US shores, according to Siliconera. Developer Spike Chunsoft told the site that they have been “searching for a publishing partner” to bring their game to North America. This is exciting news, as the show has become wildly popular here in the States.

Attack on Titan sold 93,000 copies in its first week available back in December 2013, and Spike Chunsoft has been faced with a demand that is “constantly outweighing supply.” Siliconera also mentioned that “by February 2014, the game had sold over 240,000 copies at retail — and we imagine even more when counting download copies, due to the short supply in retail stores.”

Hopefully this ends up being more than just a rumor, because I would love to swing around and take down Titans. Love it.
