Attack On Titan Becomes Nintendo 3DS Game

Given Attack on Titan is currently being made into a live-action movie, it doesn’t come as a major surprise that a game company is looking to cash in on the manga franchise. According to GamerInformer, it’s unfortunately coming to 3DS. It feels like something that should be on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 instead. The game is slated for release in a few weeks and I hope it turns out to be worth it. That said, I’m really not sure how much plot the game can have given the manga is still early in the storytelling process.


Atlus is bringing the latest version of Spike Chunsoft’s Attack on Titan game, Humanity in Chains, to western shores. The title was announced today during the Nintendo Direct, and you can check out the trailer and screenshots below.

Attack on Titan supports local and online cooperative play for up to four, and if you have a Circle Pad Pro or New 3DS, you’ll get more refined control out of the right analog disc or c-stick. In addition, the first two episodes of the anime are available on the eShop for free (you can also catch the series on Netflix).

Whether you prefer your anime titles subtitled or dubbed, you’ll be happy to know that you have a choice. The game is slated for release in May, though a specific date has not yet been confirmed.





Four Million Copies Of Pokémon X And Y Sold In First Two Days (GameInformer.com)

You’d think this would have crushed the recent GTAV world records. Regardless, this is extremely positive news for 3DS and its occasionally troubled history.


Last week saw the release of the first 3DS Pokémon adventure (and we liked it). Nintendo is pretty happy with it, too. The new title has sold over four million copies in its first two days.

Pokémon X and Y were an ambitious release for Nintendo, which sent the game to retail simultaneously worldwide. The title is on pace to sell more than Pokémon Black and White 2 by more than 70 percent.

Nintendo also revealed that five titles in the series have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. They are:

  • Diamond and Pearl (DS) – 17.63 Million
  • Ruby and Sapphire (GBA) – 16.22 Million
  • Black and White (DS) – 15.42 Million
  • HeartGold and SoulSilver (DS) – 12.67 Million
  • FireRed and LeafGreen (GBA) – 12 Million

Our Take
There is no denying the power of Pokémon. The series has enthralled gamers young and old since its inception on the Game Boy. X and Y have particular nostalgic value thanks to the appearance of the original three starter Pokémon. If you are planning on catching them all (if that is even still possible), Nintendo is no doubt happy for your business.

Real Life Assassin’s Creed Parkour at Comic Con (GameInformer.com)

The most interesting thing to me in the video, besides that fact that Ronnie’s talented and makes climbing buildings look effortless, is how many innocent bystanders didn’t even notice him running through their dinner, their stroll along the sidewalk, or even through their standing line to somewhere. Are we all that oblivious?

******************************

Parkour runner Ronnie Shalvis and filmmaker Devin Graham are back with a new Assassin’s Creed video, and this time they’re running through Comic Con.

We’ve seen Shalvis dressed as Ezio for the Assassin’s Creed II trilogy, and as Connor for Assassin’s Creed III, and now he’s tackling the unreleased Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

Along with disrupting the assorted meals of Comic Con attendees, Shalvis and Graham also crashed Ubisoft’s boat party. You can check out the video below, and look out for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on current-gen consoles on October 29.
