Lair is the first PlayStation 3 title to have been fully playable via the Remote Play function, allowing it to be accessed through the Internet on a PlayStation Portable. An English demo was released for Asian countries except for Japan, prior to the game's release. The game's soundtrack was composed by John Debney. Lair received mixed reviews upon release, with critics praising the game's visuals and art direction, while criticizing its control scheme. Sony released a reviewer guide to teach reviewers how to properly review the game. Analog stick support and DualShock 3 controller support were later introduced to the game. It was Factor 5's last game developed before its closure in May 2009.
The game mainly revolves around the pursuits of Rohn, one of the Burners (dragon-riders) Sky Guards (the air force-based military). At first Rohn adopts the feeling of hatred towards the Mokai the Asylians have but over the course of the story begins to have more sympathy towards this misunderstood people.
Lair is the first PlayStation 3 title to have been fully playable via the Remote Play function, allowing it to be accessed through the Internet on a PlayStation Portable. Though not fully playable, as motion sensor controls are not available on PSP. The machine lacks L2 and R2 buttons and a right analog stick, which are necessary to pass certain levels. With recent firmware updates, the dragon may be controlled with the analog nub and buttons can be assigned on the PSP to act as L2 and R2, rendering Lair fully playable. Initially the game was Wii tech demo.
An English-language demo for Lair was made available to Asian markets only, excluding Japan, in April 2008. Even though the Lair Trial Version includes the gameplay patch, it is not compatible with the Remote Play function.
On October 20th that year, in-development glimpses were shown, including part of BB's boss battle and some stages, in an Inti Creates livestream about several games. On that same day, they announced that they would showcase a public demo of GV3 on November 29th. On November 12th, Inti Creates posted a image on Twitter showcasing Kirin in a different pose.
On November 29th at the Digi Games Expo, the demo featured parts of the missions Holy Night XIII (Downtown Christmas), then only referred to as Winter Christmas, and the Trick Shot (Abandoned Factory) stage. BB and Cayman were the respective bosses, and while BB's battle mostly resembled the final version, Cayman's was missing attacks such as his SP skill Duelist Dimension. The demo did not have any dialog or voice acting. Nothing beyond gameplay was revealed about BB or Cayman. Purportedly, the game was said to only be 5% complete. On December 25, 2020, Inti Creates had its new year stream, with small segments showing the Abandoned Factory and Downtown Christmas. On December 28, 4gamer.net published an article showing the screenshots of the GV3 demo, including the cut-in art of BB's SP skill.
On October 5th, Episode 53 guest starred Yuta Kasuya, the voice actor for Merak. It showcased the hidden boss fight with Merak and Teseo in Sunrise Palace 2 on Normal Mode. A demo of the game allowing people to play up to Holy Night XIII will be added to Steam as a part of the platform's Next Festival promotion, with the game itself slated for full Steam release October 13th. The final highlight of the broadcast was the announcement for the Gunvolt 3 Halloween character poll, where the winner will be made the spotlight character for 2022's Halloween wallpaper.
The booth featured an in-development preview from the upcoming Epilogue ATEMS, showcasing one of the levels (Megafloat \"Neptune\") and ZedΩ's gameplay, which seems to be a mix of both Kirin's and Gunvolt's, being able to tag enemies and barrage them with fiery birds, slash them with a flaming sword, or warp-slash them similar to Arc Chain. The Special Skills demonstrated are all based off his attacks as a boss. It also showed that Luxia will follow Zed similar to Lumen, singing songs when the Kudos counter reaches certain milestones and reviving Zed when his HP runs out, much like Anthem. While there was a 10-minute countdown on the upper center of the screen, it is currently unknown if this is going to be an element in the full release. Both the day 1 and day 2 events concluded with the LUXAIR LIVE concert premiering a number of songs sung by Luxia. 153554b96e
