Don’t Just Fight Giant Monsters, Become One In Gaist Crusher

By Sunjun . July 31, 2013 . 9:00am

In Capcom’s newest action game, Gaist Crusher, you fight mechanical monsters called Gaists by using equipment called Gaist Gear. There are over 100 different Gaist Gear. Capcom previously revealed that Gaist Gear can transform into armor and weapons, but they’ve now revealed the Extreme Form.


In the Extreme Form, you transform into a Gaist wielding tremendous power. To use this form, you must first build up your Extreme Form Gauge.


In these screenshots, you get to see the main character, Rekka, transform into a Gaist to fight the giant Onmyou Yatagarasu.



Here are some other Gaists that you can transform into:


Arc Phoenix


Hurricane Djinn


Magical Cait Sith


Gaia Orochi

015 (2)


Wind Garuda


Maximum Tauros

Capcom has also revealed a new Gaist, the Bloody Ogre. It is a giant earth-type Gaist and a manifestation of anger.


In this game, you play as the Gaist Crusher Garrison, who must protect Steel City from Gaists. However, behind the Gaist attacks, there is a mysterious man named Cipher pulling the strings. He repeatedly appears before the GCG and may be part of an organization.


Gaist Crusher is scheduled to be released for the Nintendo 3DS this winter.

    Come to NA and EU, come to NA and EU, come to NA and EU… is it working yet? :<

    • Ferrick

      Not working… we may need the dragonballs to get this and several others to be localized

  • those screens make me think a little of king of the monsters

  • Jesse Torres

    I would really like to play a game like this if it were to be localized, and that is a big IF.

  • Rohan Kishibe

    Maximum Tauros… Capcom sure is one for recyling material…

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    So in order to fight the monster, you must become a monster…

    Dayum, that Ogre Gaist looks awesome!

    The Gaist-transformation is quite a great addition to the combat system. There are quite a lot of games that I wish I could transform into the bosses themselves!

  • Corginand

    I like the Gaists designs so far. I hope this somehow gets localized :(

  • WyattEpp

    Gaist Crusher Garrison… GCG? Can they do Final Fusion?

  • Kris

    My interest in this has been piqued ever since hearing it was a Treasure title, I wonder how it plays… Holding onto the perverse hope that we see this localized!

  • Göran Isacson

    Transforming into giant monsters? I am okay with this feature. I am very very much okay with this feature.

  • Tonton Ramos

    First time I’ve heard of this title. Judging from the screenshots, it looks freakin’ awesome. The screenies looks like a Monster Hunter game. How do we call games like this again? I mean games like PSO, MH, GE, etc. Do we a new subgenre for this this type of game?
