Attack on Titan 3DS Game's New Ad Runs Before Thursday's Release
posted on by Egan Loo
Spike Chunsoft began steaming a 15-second television commercial for its Shingeki no Kyojin ~Jinrui Saigo no Tsubasa (Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Humanity) Nintendo 3DS action game on Wednesday. The ad highlights the 3d maneuvering, the multi-player option, and character training.
In the game's Story Mode, the player controls Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and other members of the Survey Corps as they recreate the anime and 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. 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. After clearing missions, players can obtain parts that can be used in the game's other mode, World Mode.
Up to four players can cooperate in the World Mode. Players can make, customize, and train their own original characters. Once created, the characters can take on either conventional or survey missions. As a character's level rises, he or she can be equipped with newly developed weapons, better 3D manuever gear, and other items.
Spike Chunsoft will ship the game in Japan on December 5 for 6,090 yen (about US$61). The ad notes that the game offers Levi's route as downloadable content in Story Mode. The Levi route will be free for a limited time starting on the game's December 5 launch. If you clear the Levi route, you can play as him in World Mode and use his special weapons and parts.
