Our first look at Assault Spy!

During Gamescom 2018 we visited the lovely people of NIS America. It was a extensive presentation where we saw, among other games, Assault Spy. It was described as a Devil May Cry like game fulled with action and cool characters. Luckily we received a early acces code for this game and with the release just around the corner, it's a great time to check Assault spy.

At this moment I can only choose Asaru if I want to play the story mode (which is not fully unlocked in this early access build). You can also visit the dojo to learn all about the mechanics of this game. There is a second character, Amelia, but with her you can only enter the dojo or a Deathmatch.

In this first mission, Asaru needs to infiltrate some kind of building. I managed to do this without being detected, but then we meet the second character Kanoko and she is really an airhead and set off the alarms, just because she thinks it's a game. I think the beginning of a great friendship is born:)

At this moment the the subtitles are English, but the voice casting is Japanese. I don't know if there will be more language option in the full game, but I don't think you'll need them. The Japanese voice cast is so awesome! Another thing that don't need change is the combat system. The combat system is like hack and slash and it works like a charm. You have a light and heavy attackand the option to use a gun. I think it's awesome that Asaru uses a suitcase for his light and heavy attack!

I mentioned the Death March mode earlier and of course I gave it a try. This is a challenging mode!
You fight continuous battles under a time limit. Enemies will drop time extending items based on your battle rank. There are no checkpoints. After a game over you must start from the beginning. Watch your health as you try to make it to the final floor.

I had a blast playing Assault Spy. It's a very dynamic game, packed with action and the various characters you will meet are all so funny! I'm definitely looking forward to the full release!

Assault Spy by NIS America is scheduled for release at October 2, 2018 for PC. For more info, please the official website.
