Cryptozoic Entertainment, announced the November 9 release of the Attack on Titan Deck-Building Game. The 1-5 player card game is based on the hit anime series in which heroes try to protect the walls of the last remaining human city from the onslaught of giant carnivorous Titans.
The game uses Cryptozoic’s Cerberus Engine with the addition of movement, as well as other unique gameplay features that place players inside the world of Attack on Titan. In addition, this is the first Cerberus deck-building title to offer cooperative play from the start, without requiring an expansion.
Players become Heroes from the anime, including Eren, Mikasa, and Armin, each of whom has a unique special ability that helps the team. Along with a Hero Card, players have a Hero standee, since movement is a factor in the game, as utilized through cards with movement values. Players must move Heroes from District to District to buy needed cards, such as Ally, Equipment, Location, and Maneuver Cards. When they’re ready, Heroes can be moved over Walls to fight off Titans or protect Walls from being destroyed.
The Attack on Titan Deck-Building Game will be available at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $39.99. The game gives fans a chance to relive the adventures of Season 1 in a complex deck-building experience before the premiere of Season 2 in 2017.
