KOEI TECMO ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL EUROPEAN TITLE FOR EXPLOSIVE ACTION GAME BASED ON THE WORLDWIDE ANIME PHENOMENON: ‘ATTACK ON TITAN’
Release Date and Gaming Platforms revealed for A.O.T. Wings of Freedom!
Hertfordshire, 07 April 2015- Koei Tecmo Europe is thrilled to reveal today a wealth of new information relating to the western release of Omega Force’s highly acclaimed action title, based on international hit anime series, ‘Attack on Titan’!
Following a successful launch in its native Japan, the eagerly anticipated action game will be released across Europe under the title: ‘A.O.T. Wings of Freedom’ on the 26th August 2016. The title name is a nod to the fan-favourite blue and white wings of the Scout Regiment insignia, where many of the anime’s (and by extension the game’s) playable characters serve.
Koei Tecmo also confirmed that ‘A.O.T. Wings of Freedom’ will be available for players to enjoy on a wide selection of consoles, and is currently being developed for physical release on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and for digital only release on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita handheld system and on PC via Steam®.
‘A.O.T. Wings of Freedom’ closely follows the riveting story line of Attack on Titan’s first season and focuses on the exploits of various key characters, putting the player in a position to relive the anime’s most shocking, courageous, and exhilarating moments. It revolves around the story of three young people who survive the destruction of their walled city district by enormous, man-eating Titans and eventually go on to join the Scout Regiment in order to protect humanity from this overpowering foe.
While more information about the game’s plot, original content, and playable characters will be unveiled in the coming weeks, Koei Tecmo has released the first batch of localised assets, as well as an action trailer that can be accessed here.
