Gaist Crusher Has The Spirit Of Mega Man In It

If you miss defeating robot bosses and taking their powers Gaist Crusher might be the game for you. Capcom’s upcoming action game has a system that brings back memories of Mega Man.

Gaists are mechanical monsters in the world of Gaist Crusher and Gaist Gears let you transform into them. This fight shows Onmyo Yatagarasu a monster that attacks with its sharp claws and pointy beak.

If you can defeat a weakened enemy you may trigger a Crash Chance. This exposes a Gaist’s Gaimetal core and you have a limited amount of time to crush it. Your reward for crushing before the clock runs out is a new Gaist Gear. Onmyo Yatagarasu gives players a spear with a fire attribute.

    Megaman ZX Advent and Monster Hunters sweet, sweet 11 year old son is getting more and more impressive.

    inb4 “We can’t localize this because text on images is impossible to translate despite what all game localisations since the NES era had led you to believe”

    • AkuLord3

      Nah that would mean MORE WORK AND TIME…Screw that 8D

    • Will Jay

      No, it’s more like “we have a bunch of toys and a cartoon and shit we can’t bring the game over without, and no one wants to pick it up, so you’re fucked, sorry”.

  • Nanaki

    Is that where he’s been this whole time?

  • MasterScrub

    It’s too bad we’re never going to get this game since Capcom won’t localize anything unless they have over a million people beg them to.

  • Sophitia

    Looks great. Gonna buy this for sure. It’s a shame though, every new interesting Japanese game news must be tainted by “localization plz” comments.

    • AkuLord3

      And that’s a bad thing? i mean yeah its gets annoying to see…but really should you be glad a good amount of people are wanting to play it (though on Siliconera Community that’s a given but still~) especially with since 3DS being region locked…
      If only someone got around to that *looks at hanging photo of Reggie*…Don’t ask why i have that

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      Its extremely annoying to see. Conversations always drowning out game discussion always get drowned out with LOCALIZATION PLS every time.

      • Neophoton

        I’d see it more as hoping for an expanded audience to increase discussion opportunities.

        I imported Bravely Default ages ago, but I’ve lacked people to really discuss it with as none of my friends were able to play the game, let alone understand it due to being in a different language. :P

        Though I understand it can be annoying, but I also see the flip side.

    • French

      I agree with you

  • Tonton Ramos

    This has the spirit of Megaman huh… yeah using the MML3 game engine…

    • ronin4life

      No it isn’t… they “confirmed” that…

      …but they never said that they didn’t somehow split mml3 in half and make EX troopers with one piece and Gaist with the rest…


      • British_Otaku

        I heard E.X Troopers was in development before the cancellation of Legends 3 ( ).

        Gaist Crusher? It doesn’t look like Legends in the slightest. I suppose I don’t have a source confirming that it has nothing to do with MML3, but the engine is shared with Street Fighter 4 on the 3DS, both Resident Evil games on the 3DS, Monster Hunter on the 3DS,UMVC3 on the Vita and Ace Attorney 5…

    • GuyAlpha

      You know the MML3 engine is just a mobile version of MT Frameworks, right? An engine that they use for multiple games? MML3 didn’t have an exclusive engine.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    You know what’s better than the spirit of Mega Man? Mega Man.

    • Ric Vazquez


  • Neophoton

    Kind of want to get this, but I told myself I’d cut back on buying games.

  • Lynx


    Oh wait. Wrong game.

  • Vash bane

    cant wait to see some extended gameplay :D

  • fawzowz

    I’ve a feeling like that when i saw the 1st trailer. It just reminds me of megaman, especially the Starforce Series.

  • Antixono

    I really hope this get localized.

  • Testsubject909

    MM Mega Man.
    GG Gaist Gears.

    Makes me think of GG and BB…


    It’d still be nice to see the blue bomber in another good Megaman game.

  • WyattEpp

    “This exposes a Gaist’s Zonder Metal core and you have a limited amount of time to [Goldion] crush it.”

    I can’t help myself; this game is so GaoGaiGar, I love it.

  • This game reminds me of so many things. I hope it comes to North America.
