Just came across this awesome footage from the newly released in Japan title, Attack On Titan. It’s great to see some of the in game action which look fantastic, I’m a fan of the series and I really can’t for a Western release. Here’s the footage which goes for over 2 minutes and also features Titan Eren kicking some massive Titan ass!
I’m a pretty big fan of Attack on Titan as a series. I’ve watched the anime and can’t wait for the 2nd season and also read quite a bit of the manga. The live action movies were hit and miss for me but to each their own, right?
Anyways, while we wait for the second season the good folks over at Koei Tecmo have been hard at work on a AoT game for the PS3, PS4 and the PS Vita. The game recently touched down in Japan and with that was the release of the opening cinematic for the PS4 version of the game. Needles to say, it looks amazing and very fast paced full of the very same action that made the series a runawaway success. But don’t take my word for it, roll the video!
And the best news is, the game is headed to the West later this year. Really can’t wait to play some of this on the Vita and PS4.
I was lucky enough to see some footage of the upcoming Attack on Titan game at Tokyo Game Show 2015 and it looked phenomenal. Now Japanese publication, Famitsu have provided fans with a juicy update in the latest issue. A couple of names have been added to the list of characters added to the game’s roster.
Hanji and fan favourite, Levi will be making an appearance in the, hopefully in the near future more information on this update will be made available. Some video footage of Levi carving up a Titan would be fantastic!
The game will be hitting up the Playstation family (PS3, PS4, PS Vita), Winter 2015 in Japan while the West will be seeing it in 2016.
Sega have revealed their lineup for Tokyo Game Show 2015 in a classic display of better late than never! Their lineup features some amazing titles such as a new Hatsune Miku game for both PS Vita and PS4, the updated Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax Ignition for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita and the new Persona 5 from Atlus. Here’s the complete line up below. Sound off in the comments if there’s anything you’re really excited for.

So is that what everyone expected, any surprises in there for anyone? Dragon Ball has such a huge fanbase so it isn’t a big surprise to see positions 1 and 2 occupied by these titles. The Nintendo 3DS is continues to have a huge impact on both software and hardware sales.
Another big hitter in the gaming world, Sony have revealed what they’re bringing to the table for this year’s Tokyo Game Show and boy, it is good! There’s quite a few games in there that I’d love to get my hands on, in particular, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax on the PS Vita, being more of a handheld gamer. The Order: 1886 on the PS4 has a lot of tongues wagging as does The Evil Within, the latest opus from the father of Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami.
