Cryptozoic Entertainment and Don’t Panic Games Acquire License for Attack on Titan games
Great news “Attack on Titan” fans, North American based Cryptozoic Entertainment and Europe based Don’t Panic Games have announced their collaboration on the acquisition of the “Attack on Titan” anime license to design and distribute board games internationally.
Since its launch back in 2009, “Attack on Titan” has become one of the most popular Manga properties, spawning not only books, but also video games, movies and a TV series. News that the dark / fantasy universe is being adapted for board games is epic! We’re really hoping this will be great, particularly given non other than Antoine Bauza and Ludovic Maublanc are on board to bring it to life.
The first Attack on Titan board game, designed by award-winning game designers, Antoine Bauza and Ludovic Maublanc will be released internationally in 2016. In the game, one player takes on the role of a Titan while the others represent the human heroes fighting it. The game features a revolutionary game mechanic, the Titan piece is a vertical game board element and the hero game pieces climb in an effort to take him down.
The initial board game prototypes will be demonstrated for the first time worldwide at Anime ExpoÂ® in Los Angeles and Japan Expo in Paris, July 2-5.
Roll on 2016!
