It?s crazytalk to assume that anyone who?s come across the anime series ?Shingeki no Kyojin?(Attack on Titan) wouldn?t have, at least once, envisioned themselves as a part of the Survey Corps. With all the very colorful characters in it too, it isn?t hard to figure out why Shingeki no Kyojin surged forward in the consciousness of many anime fans.

Shingeki no Kyojin is a fairly new series, but it already enjoys a cult following of fans both in the US and in other parts of the world. It is set in a world where steam-punk technology enables the protagonists, among the last of humanity, to do battle with gigantic humanoids called Titans. These are also the reason for humanity?s extinction; Titans eat humans, so an extinction event is set in place at the time the main protagonist comes into the picture.

If you?ve always wanted to know what it feels like to be Eren Jaeger (the main protagonist), here?s the chance for you to do so: there are increasing reports that the Attack on Titan series might be ported for the North American 3DS. It is only a possibility, and not yet a surety, though, that this series is ported to the 3DS.

There is no solid confirmation that the game is going to launch, however. The developer, Japanese game studio Spike Chunsoft, has since said in a Joystiq report that it was looking for a North American publisher to help in the release of the game for the Western market.

Since then, there had been no reports so far that the game was about to launch in the North American market. The news was received with mixed reactions, with some saying that the game should feature the protagonists and their ability to zip around, using their 3D maneuver gear to manipulate and get around their surroundings. Still, there are the pessimists, who are confident with their views that this game would turn out to be another clone of the more popular Spider-man series. The Spider-man series, as we all know, features Spider-man zipping around Manhattan with the help of his web-shooters.

The game in question, Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind (Shingeki no Kyojin: Hangeki no Tsubasa) was released in Japan last December 5, 2013. It is an action game that was developed and released by Spike Chunsoft exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS.

Owing to the barrier-transcending trait of the game, since then, the Attack on Titan 3DS sales have spiked considerably in Japan. It has enjoyed sales of more than 93000, and that was on the first week of release alone. There were reports that the game was sold out in stores, and as of February this year, more than 240,000 copies of the game were sold in the market.

As for the anime, fans are awaiting the second season. A report has since said that the Season 2 release is fast approaching, and that it is slated to be released this month.
