Nights of Azure: Introduction and History - Lesbian vampire demons from the creators of Atelier? You better believe we're on board with that... so let's start by taking a look at the background of developer Gust.
Nights of Azure: Hack, Slash… and Command - Gust's Nights of Azure is a hack-and-slash action RPG with a twist: you bring some little friends along for the ride, too, and they all have their own unique charms that become apparent in battle!

Nights of Azure: Sights and Sounds - Like many of Gust's other works, Nights of Azure has a very distinctive audio-visual aesthetic about it. So let's explore that further to wrap up our time with the game.
