During NIS America’s annual press event in San Francisco, which DualShockers attended, the publisher announced Assault Spy, an action game for PC by indie developer Wazen.
With NIS America’s support, the game will launch on Steam Early Access in May 2018.
Assault Spy is a pure action game which will set the player in the shoes of Asaru, a corporate spy set on discovering the secret of a corporation named Negabot. It includes bits of comedy, stylish gameplay, and a second side that lets you play a reckless CIA agent named Amelia. As you change characters, you’ll be able to experience a different fighting style and another angle of the story.
The announcement press release included an official presentation, that you can read below.
