During the Japanese version of his live-streamed Nintendo Direct presentation on Tuesday, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata presented a new gameplay video for the Shingeki no Kyojin ~Jinrui Saigo no Tsubasa (Attack on Titan: Last Wings of Humanity) Nintendo 3DS action game.
The video begins by showing how the game promises to relive Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga and anime with "3D Maneuvering action."
In the game's story mode, the player controls Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and other members of the Survey Corps as they take on the invading giants. At the beginning of this mode, the player can only play as Eren, but as the game progresses, the player can choose Mikasa and Armin. Enterbrain's Famitsu magazine teases that Levi and other characters might be available as well. The characters use the story's signature 3D manuever gear for "speedy action."
In each mission, the computer control allies who fight alongside the player. If allies are captured, the player can rescue them by cutting the Titans' arms before the humans are eaten. Naturally, if the characters are eaten by the giants, the player fails the mission and the game is over.
Up to four players can cooperate in the game's multiplayer mode. The video demonstrates how players can also make, customize, and train their own characters.
Spike Chunsoft will ship the game in Japan on December 5 for 6,090 yen (about US$61).
