Gaist Crusher is Capcom’s upcoming cross-media project that aims to produce content for kids. The multiplayer Nintendo 3DS game has key points in transforming, armament and collecting. Now that they’ve introduced giant monsters, I think the interest just might go beyond the target audience. Capcom introduces Gaist Crusher’s story and a look at some giant Gaists.
In the year 2047, a rare metal, known as the Gaimetal was discovered 50,000m in the depths of the land. The Gaimetal is a metal with the purest form of energy, and was considered a discovery of a whole new resource of energy. Since then, the entire world has been digging mines in search of this new form of energy.
However, in the year 2055, metallic organisms covered in Gaimetal, called “Gaist” have appeared, and begun to assault mankind. In order to fight against the Gaist, the best scientists from around the world gathered to create the super national countermeasure organization, known as the Gaist Crusher Garrison, or GCG.
A few years later… It’s the year 2064, and the stage is set in Steel City, where a new story is about to unravel…
Here’s a look at some of the giant Gaists we’ll be seeing:
Tekkou Ryujin is a Gaist that appears in Steel City. It has an intense God-like appearance of a mythological dragon. It is also the first giant Gaist that Recca encounters.
This bird-type Gaist also appears in Steel City. It takes the form of the Yatagarasu, the mythological three-legged crow. It won’t hesitate to take on even the mightiest Gaist, but it will be up to the Gaist Crusher to stop this giant bird. When the Onmyo Yatagarasu spreads its wings, it will do powerful attacks using its sharp claws. It will require a finesse to counter its attacks and give it everything you got.
Gaist Crusher is slated for release in Winter 2013 for the Nintendo 3DS.
