Developer Omega Force who’s world famous for their Warriors series is working on a new Attack on Titan game that will have you slice up Titans like Captain Levi in a huge world filled with amazing things. Famitsu shares an exclusive first look at some screenshots of the upcoming game.

The Attack on Titan game by Omega Force is a “tactical hunting action” game that will allow you to think of strategies while diving deep into its action. The player’s actions will always have an impact on the strategies involved in taking out the Titans. There are all kinds of things going on in the fields, like cannons mounted on the castle gates, and various weapons and ammo in the storage areas, which you’ll also get to use in the fight agains the Titans.

Producer Hisashi Koinuma says that the Musou or Warriors series tends to put you in “one against many enemies” situations, but for Attack on Titan he wants to make it into something different, along the lines of “many [humans] against one enemy [Titan]” situations instead. He’s also thinking about adding more tactical elements than with your regular Musou/Warriors titles.

However, it doesn’t mean that Attack on Titans will be a similar hack-and-slash altogether, as director Tomoyuki Kitamura explains, “players that are used to play games, or should I say ‘play Warriors ,’ will get a feeling like they’re Captain Levi right from the start. “There are high risks if you try to immediately go for the back of their necks, so it’ll be an effective tactic to start out by destroying their limbs,” the director adds. “Although, I don’t think it’d be impossible to have those who are used to action games be able to take them out in one blow.”

“The part that we ought to focus more on is about ‘how to make it feel good while flying around using the 3D Maneuver Gear?’ and we’ve redone this system numerous times,” Hisashi Koinuma.

Tomoyuki Kitamura also adds that the main mode will let you relive the original story. They’re thinking about making a “sub-mode” on the side, that will highlight the characters that don’t have much of an appearance in the original show, or something with more action from the original story.

Attack on Titan will release in Japan this winter, and 2016 will see a release for the rest of the world for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.
