The Attack on Titan 3DS Game May Come To North America
A source at Spike Chunsoft has revealed to Siliconera that the company is looking to bring their Attack on Titan game for the Nintendo 3DS to North America, and has been searching for a publishing partner to do so.
Attack on Titan was released in December 2013 in Japan. The game sold 93,000 copies in its first week and sold out very quickly after that at retail stores. Over the next several weeks, Spike Chunsoft continued to ship additional copies of the game, with demand constantly outweighing supply.
By February 2014, the game had sold over 240,000 copies at retail—and we imagine even more when counting download copies, due to the short supply in retail stores.
Series Creator Apologizes! Hit Manga Series Published With Hidden Dirty Messages!
(link to what the image says in english)
But wait, what are those messages hidden in that panel? Was that a secret information about the character? A teaser for plot twist? Oh no, it turns out that Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 57 included a hidden dirty message for readers!
Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 57 was published in the June issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine which was released last Friday, May 9 for public consumption. However, as the panel is reverted upside-down it contained a seriously crude message written in katakana characters. While the meaning of the hidden dirty message was not revealed, the creator Hajime Isayama revealed that the message was unintentionally added and has no significance to the story at all.
Isayama has since issued a public apology through his blog site about the Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 57 incident, written in Japanese. According to J-Cast News his assistant had written the messages and he overlooked it as Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 57 was in the publishing process. He promised to the fans of the hit manga and anime series that he will focus more on reviewing the final draft of the manga before it reaches the publishing department.
The next chapter of Shingeki no Kyojin will appear on the same magazine next month for its July issue. Watch out for it!
