Today, GamesRadar is pleased to offer you closed beta keys for Rusty Hearts. Part brawler and part dungeon crawler, the online game looks pretty anime-zing, sporting a sweet cel-shaded art style. Rusty Hearts developer Stairway Games cites the Devil May Cry series, Castle Crashers and Scott Pilgrim as major influences for the game’s look and feel. When it comes to the team’s influences from anime and manga, Executive Producer Jonathan Belliss points to battles from Naruto, the storyline from Bleach, and elements from Full Metal Alchemist. As fans of pretty much everything mentioned above, Rusty Hearts sounds like our kind of game.
Check out our recent hands-on preview from E3 2011 for more impressions and the teaser below to see how Rusty Hearts’ battles look in motion. Interested? We are, and we’ve got a ton of closed beta key for GamesRadar readers. As an added bonus, if you use one of GamesRadar’s keys to sign up for the beta, you’ll also get exclusive insect-themed costume sets for your characters. Publisher Perfect World expects to launch the closed beta phase later this July. So grab a key, register for the beta, and secure your slot for good times and long combos when the Rusty Hearts closed beta phase launches later this month!
