Hell I even walked past the eye-catching anime inspired cross between God of War and Castle Crashers numerous times at this year’s E3. After getting some hands-on with it at Anime Expo I’m not really sure why.
While not too much has changed since the E3 build of Rusty Hearts in the gameplay department, the folks at Perfect World had a couple new features to show off. A new playable character Frantz — a mid-ranged melee specialist with some fancy magical abilities—and the unveiling of Rusty Hearts Player versus Player modes.
Starting with the half vampire Frantz, a sort of Richter Belmont meets Dante, I felt instantly at home with a control pad in hand. Frantz is a good balance of speed, strength and awesome magical abilities that really allow for a lot of high level combos with a little practice. Quick double taps of the analog stick allow Frantz to teleport through enemies to easily get the upper hand and if you’ve played Devil May Cry you’ll be right at home with him, minus the guns."
