Level-5 has had great success creating series like LBX and Inazuma Eleven that are more than video games. These are franchises with anime series, toys, and arcade games. Every Japanese publisher is trying a similar strategy – Sega with Sonic Boom, Square Enix with the now shuttered Gyrozetter, and Capcom with Gaist Crusher.
If you haven’t seen Gaist Crusher before it’s kind of like Monster Hunter made for kids with a line of collectable toys. Gaist Crusher launched last year and the Nintendo 3DS game had a weak launch. However, Capcom isn’t giving up on Gaist Crusher quite yet. Treasure and Capcom created Gaist Crusher God, a sequel where you work with friends to defeat the God Gaist. Gaist Crusher God comes out on September 4, less than a year after Gaist Crusher.
If you played Gaist Crusher you can import character data into Gaist Crusher God. Just like the previous game, Gaist Crusher God supports cooperative play for up to four players and connects with a line of Gaist Crusher toys.
