Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind may have a shot at localization. According to a Siliconera report, Spike Chunsoft has been searching for a publishing partner in hopes of bringing the game west. That’s not a confirmation by any means, but it’s a fair bit of hope for the future.


Spike Chunsoft producer Kazuhiro Watanabe reflected on his work for Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind while speaking with 4Gamer last month. Watanabe also teased an announcement that he believes will be made sometime in 2014.

His comments in full:

In 2013, I worked mostly on Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind. We’ve been working on it for a long while, and we were trying to keep a close eye on the look of the anime. Since the anime began airing, the background and context really opened up and it became a huge social phenomenon, which makes me happy. One of the dilemmas is that anxiety also heightens during such development (note: likely wanting to meet expectations). With that said, it was the first time for me personally to work on a licensed title, so of course I hope we make the fans of the manga or anime happy. To be honest, though, the level of anxiety just continued to rise until the game was finally released. On the other hand, we took many aspects from a genre that has already been done, so we followed in the “wire action” style of games like “Tenchu” and “Shinobido”. I think this year we will be sharing an announcement, so please wait a while for that.


Spike Chunsoft’s Yuichiro Saito was among the developers 4Gamer spoke to for its New Year’s feature. One of Saito’s more recent works was Conception II.

Speaking on the topic of 2014, Saito stated that Spike Chunsoft will continue to work hard to get games out there, because it is in them. If you pay attention in 2014, there will be some exciting announcements, he added.


Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind sold 94,775 copies in its first week, based on data tracked by Dengeki.

Those strong sales resulted in a 75% sell-through rate (give or take). It also means Spike Chunsoft probably shipped around 130,000 copies of Attack on Titan.

Media Create’s latest data puts Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind at 42,311 copies sold in its second week. As such, it has probably sold through its entire first shipment.

For a title that didn’t have a lengthy development period and a somewhat meager budget, Spike Chunsoft should be pleased with Attack on Titan’s performance thus far.


More downloadable content is coming to Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind. Players will be able to take on Sasha’s story, which provides weapons and parts to dress up like the character when completed. One of the rewards: a giant knife and fork.
