NIS America announced that Assault Spy, an action game from indie developer Wazen that is currently in Early Access, has received a new update. This update introduces a new character, which you can see in action in the trailer below, as well a "Death March" game mode.
The game's second playable character is Amelia, and she is now available to try out in Dojo Mode. Where Asaru's playstyle involves high-speed dashing and well-timed moves, Amelia is an aggressive brawler ready to KO anyone that gets in her way.
As for the new game mode, Death March is a mode where you fight your way through floor after floor of enemies as a timer ticks downwards. You gain more time for each enemy you defeat, and the higher your battle rank, the more extra time you’ll get. There are no checkpoints, so if you get a Game Over or run out of time, you’ll start over from the beginning.
Finally, this update also adds Guard Break. Now, hitting these enemies from the front enough times will break their Guard, allowing you to go to town on them with your deadliest combos. However, take note that their Guard meter will regenerate shortly afterwards, so act fast.
Assault Spy is currently available on Steam for $19.99. Later next week, the game's Early Access price will increase from $19.99 to $24.99. At launch, the price of the game will be $29.99.
