Attack on Titan game is finally released!! In Japan. And it outsold Street Fighter V.

Dayum. From the creator of the overly done "Dynasty Warriors" esque hack and slash games of the past, like Hyrule Warriors, One Piece Pirate Warriors, Samurai Warriors, Dynasty Warriors Gundam (COUGH COUGH COUGH), and something something Warriors,

comes Attack on Titan, a game that says "fuck all that shit" and decide to be Attack on Titan. Great move because they need a different kind of game other than Dynasty Warriors clones.

And it outsold Street Fighter V. Awesome! Looks like people there don't buy into Capcom's bare boned crap. Smart people.

Now all we need to do is wait for this to be localized. And most likely arrive on PC. I can't wait, even though I feel bad for these titans that I'm going to slaughter because "plot spoiler that only people that follows the manga knows".

So much for Capcom trying to attract new players to fighting games by changing camera angles and making things more accessible (the latter is how you attract new players, and it can be done without having to do the former). Street Fighter 5 didn't even beat vanilla Street Fighter 4's first week numbers in the UK.

 

Can't even beat vanilla Street Fighter 4 in Japan either.

Just because it outsold Street fighter V doesn't mean it's a good game.  In fact after watching some gameplay footage I'm quickly getting the sinking feeling that this game kinda blows

 

It has obvious camera troubles and it just looks... silly....  In fact most of the titans look like bobbleheads!  It's hilarious!

At least it looks easier to play than this:

 

Mostly because of what looks like a lock-on.

You most likely aren't a fan of the series, or don't like this style of game. That's normal cause the creator of this game is known for having games that has split opinions.

This game's a breath of fresh air for the dev. Not like the Dynasty Warriors clones before. I think the game's pretty awesome, and very faithful to the anime and manga. The characters move and attack just like the show, the controls looks well done and skill based, and yes, the titans are supposed to be that ridiculous in the series. They move like dumbasses. Like this

The youtuber you're looking at doesn't really show off how to play the game right. If it's done correctly, combos like this can happen.

The game becomes even more insane once Eren turns into a titan. He whoop titans asses like it's nothing.

The Attack on Titan game that sucks though are the 3DS version and the PS Vita port. Those are not good at all.

Easier yes, but I'm willing to bet that it's no where near as fun.

I just started watching recently.  I like it's dark shadows, horror elements and the fact that the titans actually look freighting and I didn't get any of that there.

This game's a breath of fresh air for the dev. Not like the Dynasty Warriors clones before. I think the game's pretty awesome, and very faithful to the anime and manga.

"A breath of fresh air for the developer" well good for them but that doesn't affect me!  The human characters look and move like they do in the show that much is true, but the titans don't.  You try prove your point with a Jeremy Jahn video that features a few seconds of sped up/edited footage, come on!

 

Here is actual clip from the show:

A skilled player is obviously going to make it look better that someone who is playing for the first time, I doesn't mean he is playing it wrong.  In the show the humans are the ones at a significant disadvantage and taking down a titan took usually took a bit if time and strategy and wouldn't have that made for a better game than just neck slice after neck slice taking each one down with one hit?

The game becomes even more insane once Eren turns into a titan. He whoop titans asses like it's nothing.

I give this a pass because I would expect to feel overpowered with Eren as a Titan but not as a human.   As seen from the clip I posted It's not as cool in the show because the other titans actually can put up a decent fight.

The Attack on Titan game that sucks though are the 3DS version and the PS Vita port. Those are not good at all.

 

​I think that is universally agreed upon, I think this new one looks better but not by that much.

 

 

 

Aww Gawd dem graphics. Not good....

You know that does look way better!
