Delisting

Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains was delisted on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America and Europe between May 8th and May 11th, 2018. A Google Cache copy of the North American Nintendo.com page on May 8th shows the game still available to download. The game was submitted to us on May 11th and by that time the page had been removed from Nintendo.com. According to the anonymous submission, the game had recently been on sale but we couldn’t find the date when the sale ended. The European delisting is assumed to have taken place around the same time.

Humanity in Chains was the only Attack on Titan title developed by Spike Chunsoft and published by Atlus. As the submissions suggests, the delisting is likely due to an expired license or contract between the developer, publisher, or the Attack on Titan property owners.

Whatever the case, it looks to be exclusive to the Western versions of the game, as Humanity in Chains remains available on the Japanese eShop. It is also exclusively available on physical media in Japan.

 

About the Game

Based on the hit “Attack on Titan” anime and manga, players will defend the three Walls from invading Titans as a member of the elite Scout Regiment with their omni-directional mobility gear and blades. Based on the upcoming Japanese remake of an earlier Attack on Titan game, Humanity in Chains will be the first Attack on Titan game to reach North American shores, and will release exclusively on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS in early 2015 with the original Japanese audio and English subtitles.

The features for Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains include:

  • Story Mode: As a member of the elite Scout Regiment, defending the outer walls from the Titans will push players to their very limits to save humanity. Enhanced Titan AI behavior will sap every ounce of ability from players as they make a last stand for the human race.
  • Familiar Characters, New Customizations: Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackermann and others will be familiar faces for players as they pick their favorite Scout member to defend the Walls. Several new additions will join the Scout Regiment, customizable with costumes, weapons and voices.
  • Online Co-op Mode: Defend the outer walls with up to three friends in the all-new online co-op mode with ranking and leaderboards.
  • Fresh Look: Updates to the UI, improvements in gameplay balance and support for the Circle Pad Pro™ and the C Stick on the New Nintendo 3DS™ XL take Humanity in Chains to the next level.
