“Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon” & “Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX” at BitSummit 2018

Bloodstained Curse of the Moon - Hero Banner (small)

Greetings from Kyoto!

At BitSummit, Japan’s biggest indie game event, we were pleased to reveal for the first time today not one, but TWO brand new games: “Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon” and “Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX”

“Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon” is the title that we originally promised to make in tandem with Koji Igarashi during the Bloodstained Kickstarter campaign back in 2015. Mr. Igarashi’s unmatched experience with these kinds of games combined with our staff’s talent and enthusiasm for the project created a game that feels both nostalgic and like a fresh new experience at the same time.

Curse of the Moon is packed with the retro charm that made the legendary 2D action games of the 80s so enjoyable. Take control of one of four characters that can be interchanged at any time during gameplay: The sword-swinging exorcist Zangetsu, the whip-wielding heroine Miriam, the magic using alchemist Alfred, and Gebel, who can turn into a bat and take to the skies. You can experience multiple endings depending on how you interact with the characters you meet.

Luminous Avenger iX is a new title in the universe of the Gunvolt series, which began with 2014’s Nintendo 3DS eShop title “Azure Striker Gunvolt,” which was followed by 2016’s “Azure Striker Gunvolt 2.” This new title sees Gunvolt series anti-hero “Copen” take the starring role. The Inti Creates team is hard at work on this project centering around this popular character from the Gunvolt universe, and more details are to be announced this summer, so look forward to hearing more info soon!

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 Christmas Wallpaper & Gunvolt 1 Ver. 1.4 Patch (NA)

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 Christmas wallpaper

Seasons Greetings, Strikers! Christmas is almost here, and once again, Azure Striker Gunvolt character artist Yoshitaka Hatakeyama delivers some GV themed holiday cheer with this new Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 Christmas wallpaper! How freakin’ cute are Joule and Lola? Thanks for the early Christmas present, Hatakeyama-san!

You can download this lovely wallpaper on the Gunvolt 2 official website!

We also have good news for the North American version of Azure Striker Gunvolt 1! After the most recent patch update, we received reports from you guys that Special Mission 5 wasn’t working, and indeed, it was not. We apologize for this error, and with this new Patch 1.4 that will be available tomorrow (12/22) on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, that error has been fixed.

We hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas! I would wish you guys a happy new year as well, but I have a feeling that you’ll be hearing from us again before the year is out…hehe :3

Keep on Striking,

Update on the Azure Striker Gunvolt Anime OVA

Good day, Strikers! As things start wrapping up around here while we prepare to say goodbye to 2016, I wanted to take a minute to update you guys on where we stand on the Gunvolt anime OVA. We originally said in the trailer (which you can see below) that it would be released in Winter of 2016, however, due to various circumstances, releasing before the year ends is unfortunately not going to be able to happen.

Now, with that being said, the “Winter” part of that original release time-frame still holds true, we just unfortunately were unable to meet the “2016” part. We are going to release it as soon as we possibly can worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Considering the vast majority of things we need to do to release it are now done, it really won’t be much longer now.

Right now, we are aiming towards releasing the Gunvolt anime in North America, Europe, and Japan next month (January 2017), so we will keep doing what we can to make that happen. As soon as we have a release date(s) nailed down, we will share that information with you guys. Thanks for your understanding, and we hope you enjoy the anime when it comes out! :)

Keep on Striking,

Matt Papa
Gunvolt Assistant Producer
