Koei Tecmo has announced that A.O.T Wings of Freedom for PS4, XBOne, PS3, PS Vita and Steam is coming to Europe on August 26, 2016.

While the game is based on the anime and manga series, Attack on Titan, the European release will not have the Attack on Titan in the title, but instead, the game will release under the name, A.O.T: Wings of Freedom. The name change is odd as the game was released in Japan under the name, Attack on Titan. This is not the first time an Attack on Titan game has had to alter its name. In 2015, Atlus had to rename their 3DS title, Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains to Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains in order to release it in Europe. The reason why Atlus were forced to alter the game in Europe was due to a copyright claim, but while it is not known why Koei Tecmo changed the name of their game, the reason could be similar. Although, Koei Tecmo stated that the name Wings of Freedom is “a nod to the fan-favourite blue and white wings of the Scout Regiment insignia, where many of the anime’s (and by extension the game’s) playable characters serve.”

‘A.O.T. Wings of Freedom’ closely follows the riveting story line of Attack on Titan’s first season and focuses on the exploits of various key characters, putting the player in a position to relive the anime’s most shocking, courageous, and exhilarating moments. It revolves around the story of three young people who survive the destruction of their walled city district by enormous, man-eating Titans and eventually go on to join the Scout Regiment in order to protect humanity from this overpowering foe.
