Man, those Titans are creepy

A video game adaptation of Attack on Titan, the popular anime and manga series, will launch on August 30, Koei Tecmo announced. The action game will receive a physical release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with digital versions coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Windows PC.

Attack on Titan is based on the first season of the anime, in which young soldiers take on destructive, disturbing, man-eating giants. The launch trailer above shows off the game's combination of cutscenes and combat, both of which will look familiar to fans of the brutal action anime hit.

Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force worked on the game, which launched in Japan earlier this year. A Nintendo 3DS game based on the series, released in Japan in 2013, came stateside last year. Later that year came the premiere of Attack on Titan's first live-action feature — the debut trailer of which gave us nightmares for weeks.
