Incase you haven’t heard Atlus USA will be releasing the videogame adaptation of Attack on Titan, entitled Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, onto the Nintendo 3DS within the UK, Europe and America; however what you may not know is that despite being confirmed for a Summer 2015 release the game has now been delayed within Europe.
The cause of this delay? a copyright claim from another company. Details are still relatively unknown, despite it happening a few days ago, however from what-we-can-tell another company has claimed they own the rights to key-words within the games title, presumably Attack and Titan; and as a result the European release of Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains has been delayed until further notice.
Interestingly to progress the game forward through European age-verification-sites Atlus are now calling the game Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains, which coincidentially is its original japanese name; however whether or not this will be the name of the game when its ‘actually released within the UK and Europe remains to be seen.
The American release of Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains remains unaffected; but Atlus have promised they are doing everything they can to make sure the game is released during its inital Summer 2015 window.
