In honor of our 20th anniversary, we are extraordinarily happy to announce that Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is striking its way onto the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Summer 2016! Since we initially announced that we are making a sequel to Gunvolt back at our Inti Creates Fan Fest last year, we have been looking forward to this day!
First Look at Azure Striker Gunvolt 2
The flames of war between adepts who possess supernatural septimal powers, and those who do not, are being fanned once again. Although some time has passed since his battle with the Sumeragi Group, Gunvolt is called back to the battlefield once more to confront a formidable new enemy.
Gunvolt reprises his role as the main protagonist, and joining him this time around as a new playable character is Copen, Gunvolt’s rival from the first game. Between Gunvolt’s running & gunning, electrifying play style and Copen’s high-flying, acrobatic in-your-face play style, the two characters will feel very different from one another.
Since Copen’s the newcomer here as a playable character, let’s talk a little about what he can do. Copen can dash through the air, slam into his enemies to lock onto them, then unleash a devastating homing shot! Also, just like he did in the first game, Copen can copy the abilities of defeated bosses and use them as his own! Now that players can take control of Copen himself, the limitless possibilities of utilizing these new powers are waiting to be discovered!
Since we’re talking about the characters, let’s have a closer look Gunvolt, Copen, and a brand new character, Ouka!
Copen (VA: Kosuke Masuo)
Copen is the son a famous scientist whose research detailed the dangerous threat that adepts pose to society. To honor the dying wish of his late father, Copen fights to eradicate all adepts from the world.
Ouka (VA: Reina Kondo)
Ouka is an ordinary girl with no septimal powers. Recently, she was on the wrong end of a nasty encounter with a murderous adept, and only made it out alive thanks to Gunvolt. Since that day, she has been taking shelter at Gunvolt's home.
