New Attack on Titan trailers show Eren’s transformation, how to kill giants

Attack on Titan may have some terrifying source material, but given it depicts humans with swords fighting giant monsters, you can’t deny the video game potential. Temco Koei’s latest E3 trailers only reinforce that point, introducing several popular characters from the show alongside Eren’s transformation into Titan form.

The finished title will offer two main gameplay styles. First, players have access to ODM gear and blades can be used to slice off enormous Titan limbs. In certain circumstances however, Eren’s titan form will take over so you can destroy foes with your bare hands. Throw in some destructible environments, and the potential for frantic battles practically writes itself.

What’s more, Temco Koei has released a new gameplay trailer on how a skilled human can use an ODM to defeat several titans – by slicing off their legs before circling to a weak point on the neck. While there’s certainly a lot happening on the screen at every moment, the combat itself is exciting, and looks true to the series. We’ll find out for sure when the game launches on August 30, 2016.

Attack on Titan will be available for PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, and Xbox One platforms.
