Capcom has announced that they will be launching a brand new I.P. in the form of Gaist Crusher on 3DS. Apparently it’s a “Custom Armour Action” focusing on transformations, armour and item collection.
Capcom is targeting elementary school boys on this one, with the project set to span manga, anime, games and toys, not unlike Square Enix’s Gyrozetter or Comcept’s KAIO: King of Pirates. Supposedly the game will draw on two of Capcom’s strengths: Their expertise on children’s games which they got from making the Mega Man games, and their experience on multiplayer from Monster Hunter.
