NiS America is not only pushing its own titles, but indie titles under its ever-growing umbrella of games. One of those games is known as Assault Spy, an action-adventure indie title where players guide the heroes through stealth missions with the intention of not getting caught. Of course, obstacles will always be in the path of even the best spies, so its up to the player to figure out the best ways to enter and exit their various missions. Check out the trailer below, then scroll on for more info about the title's debut on Steam Early Access.

The game features an interesting take on a 3D anime-inspired style of animation, with a unique cast of characters for the player to get to know, and two playable protagonists. It's being developed by a studio called Wazen, and if some light google-fu has anything to say about it, it looks like this is going to be the developer's first major release.

Assault Spy is headed to Steam Early Access later this year, but for now, here's what the game's official listing has to say about what players can expect:

The self-proclaimed elite corporate spy Asaru and his deadweight partner Kanoko are hired for a new job in a dreary world dominated by corporations. Their mission? Infiltrate the mega corporation, Negabot. Dash, evade, and smash your way to the truth in this fast paced action game. No secret is safe from THIS bombastic spy duo!
