For those that may be unaware, this is a joint project by Ruby Party with the team behind the TV series. Ruby Party is also responsible for the "Neo Romance" series among others, as some avid Japanese fans will be able to justify.

Reports stated that the plot of the "Attack on Titan" game will revolve around a particular story around an old castle outside the walls, with the protagonist being a new face as well. Naturally, the character belongs to the Survey Corps., and upon losing their equipment inside the castle, the players are to find ways to escape as they see the other recognizable characters of the saga along the way.

Interestingly, players can choose their gender when starting "Attack on Titan;" selecting male makes Mikasa the partner and Levi will be given if to opt for the female. Moving forward, players will then be privileged to interact further with more characters, resolving the troubles that ascend thereon. For those aiming to connect the dots, the story of the said flick happens before the Female Titan was faced.
