We actually first reported on Attack on Titan TACTICS all the way back in December last year, but at the time the game was still pretty early in its development and was only available for pre-registration in Japan, so not a lot of information about it was available. Then, this April, developer DeNA officially gave us more insight into this upcoming mobile game, and it looked pretty promising for fans of the franchise.

Now, it has been announced that the game is finally getting a release in English, with pre-registration already available now. A new trailer has also been revealed alongside the announcement, and you can check it out below:

The theme of Attack on Titan, in which humans constantly have to protect the walls of their city from the giant humanoid creatures called Titans, makes for a perfect setup for a base defense game, and that’s precisely what Attack on Titan TACTICS is. You’ll get to meet several familiar characters from the anime, recruit them to your course, and upgrade their powers to eventually build a formidable team capable of slaying the Titans before they can reach your city wall and break it down.

In term of story, TACTICS will be based on the 1st season of the anime and will also feature new side missions to expand on the Attack on Titan lore and universe. Even the voice actors from the anime will return to once again lend their voices once again to their respective characters. So yeah, the game is shaping up to be a treat for fans.

The English version of Attack on Titan TACTICS will be coming sometime this fall. Right now, players living in the US, Canada, and Australia can already head over to Google Play to pre-register for the Android version of the game. Naturally, participants will receive some exclusive rewards when the game launches. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as there is a confirmed release date, so do stay tuned!
