Gaist Crusher’s Giant Boss Fights Are Much Faster Paced Than Monster Hunter

By Eugene . November 11, 2013 . 5:35pm



Despite the trailer being pretty much the same length as the last one, I kind of felt like the battle moved so much faster in this latest Gaist Crusher promotional video.


Showing off a fight between Shiren and Lunatic Sandman, it felt like a much faster-paced brawler with Shiren’s lighting-fast bow attacks and quick punch-kick combos. It also shows off the special move Crystal Symphony when Shiren dons the Cool Absolute Zero Young Noble Gaist Gear. Spinning around supremely fast, he sends crystals of pure ice straight into foes that deal damage multiple times, knocking the crazy yellow Gaimetal into the ground for a Crush Chance.


The EX Burst Shiren pulls off is from Blizzard Unicorn, which is what you get when wearing Cool Absolute.


Gaist Crusher will be out for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan December 5th.

    The environment looks like one of the desert areas MHFU. It has the small oasis palm trees and everything!

    Man. I loved the demo, and really want to support this by pre-ordering— but Capcom games, even their import exclusives, have extreme drops in pricing only a month or so after releasing. I really want to get this as a for-myself Xmas gift, but I might just wait.

    Kinda looks like Saint seya with monster transformations.

    I’m not sure how I feel about this. It moves FASTER, yes, but I get the sense this comes at the expense of the moment-to-moment tactics of a monster engagement (positioning, tells, and the risk/reward of committing to attacks).

    Basically, the impression I had was largely of them trading blows back and forth because you have a much deeper life buffer and you can see how close it is to kicking the bucket.

    Though I admittedly haven’t played it; all I know is what I’ve seen in videos.
