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

Story

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.

Characters

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!

Gunvolt

Gunvolt (VA: Kaito Ishikawa)


Gunvolt is an incredibly powerful adept with the ability to control lightning. He fights using a gun that fires special darts that when locked onto an enemy, allow him to strike with pinpoint accurate electrical attacks.

The soul of a departed adapt named Joule now resides within him, and with them perfectly synchronized as one, his power has been increased to its absolute utmost limits.

Still reeling from the profound loss and pain he experienced from his past battles, his chance meeting with a girl named Ouka helped him get back on his feet.

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.

While he may be a normal human without any septimal powers, his technological prowess and combat abilities exceed that of many adepts.

Since the events of the last game, Copen has completely revamped his gear. His new gear is designed for maximum mobility, which allows him to dash through the air and perform mid-air attacks like never before. He is also now accompanied by LoLo, a combat bot that aids him offense, defense, and mobility.

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.

Ouka was born into a family that runs a massive financial conglomerate, and lived by herself, hidden away from society in a large estate until the day that she crossed paths with Gunvolt.

She can be a bit of an airhead sometimes, but she has a kind and gentle demeanor, and is a tremendous moral support for Gunvolt.

    Great trailer, and I love the addition of Copen as playable charater (move set looks really cool). My only hope is the game will be released in Europe at the same time as NA. As a fan of the series I will love to have both games on physical. I think you guys should try Kickstarter to gauge if you can get enough people to buy the games on physical, something like an special edition with both games, soundtrack CD and artbook.
