Here’s How To Play The  Attack On Titan Visual Novels In English

Back in October, we took a look at the seven official Attack on Titan games coming out in Japan. Of these, four are visual novels included on the Japanese Blu-rays. Of course, if you can’t speak Japanese, there’s a good chance you’ll never be able to experience these side stories — until now, that is.

The team over at White Flower Translations, who regularly translate manga, light novels, and drama CDs, have decided to pick up all four games as one of its ongoing projects.

But more than simply translating the script, the WFT team is adding in a few screen shots and the accompanying background music to set the stage as you read. Of course, for the full experience — i.e. complete with voice acting — you’ll need to pick up the Japanese Blu-ray to go along with the translations.

Currently only the beginning of Lost in the Cruel World, the first of the four visual novels, has been posted online, though they plan to do all four games eventually.

To check out the translation for yourself, head on over to the White Flower Translations homepage.

Attack on Titan: Lost in the Cruel World was released in Japan on the third Attack on Titan Blu-ray on September 18, 2013. Attack on Titan: A Choice with No Regrets, Attack on Titan: Wall Sina, Goodbye and Attack on Titan: Brightly Burning in the Forest of Pitch Black Night will be released on the sixth Attack on Titan Blu-ray on December 18, 2013.


  • Wherein Kotaku demonstrates yet again that copyright laws are silly by showing how awesome it is when people violate them.

    • So far as I understand it, this doesn’t violate any copyright laws since these products are not licensed outside of their Origin company.

      Sort of like how fan translations of Anime exist and are hosted on public sites until the Anime is licensed before release in the west. Not to say you can’t still download those fan translations after the fact elsewhere, but before the licensing, it appears to be legal.

      • It’s not, unfortunately. Copyright is automatic upon expression (ie: publication) and is trans-national, applying instantly, automatically, and equally among every nation which has agreed to the TRIPS accord. Of course, that includes Australia, America and Japan.

        This is one of the many, many ways that copyright is stupid.
