GameSpot went hands-on with 30XX, Batterystaple Games’ follow-up to the acclaimed co-op roguelike platformer 20XX and shared eight minutes of direct-feed footage from PAX East. The video shows off 30XX‘s new hi-bit art style, along with Nina’s new Power Fusion system and Ace’s distinct move set of comboable Techniques. GameSpot’s Jean-Luc Bernard says of the game:
Sporting a new pixel-art visual style and borrowing liberally from influences as diverse as Contra and Super Metroid, it’s a blast to play in co-op as the dual heroes Nina and Ace. As you might imagine, they’re modeled after Mega Man X and Zero, but the game’s very clear homages to the classic Capcom series feel genuine.
