With the big announcement revealed yesterday in regards to Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 in Japan, I thought now would be as good a time as any to bring our wonderful fans outside of Japan up to speed on what’s going on with GV2.
For those of you who didn’t see the announcement we made on the Japanese side, we announced a physical version of the game that includes both Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 in one cart. A release date for both the physical version (referred to here in Japan as the Striker Pack) and the download only version of GV2 is confirmed for August 25th in Japan.
Now, as for North America and Europe, we do not have any official announcements regarding a physical version of the game or a decided release date at this time. However, rest assured that as soon as we do have an announcement, we’ll make it right away.
Make no mistake though, our goal is to make the physical version of GV1 and GV2 available to our fans outside of Japan as well. I know that some of you may be saying “Hey Inti, you guys are doing this that and the other thing in Japan, why not just do it in NA and EU too??”.
The reason behind that is a big, but simple one. We are a Japanese company, and not an exceptionally large one either. We do not have offices outside of Japan, and thus, we cannot publish physical package games on our own. That’s just the way it is. So, unless we find a partner to help us make this happen, we simply cannot make a physical version come to be.
So with that in mind, we are working on securing a partner to help bring these badass physical bundles of Gunvolt goodness to fans around the globe!
To get an idea of what we are hoping to bring you, have a look at the Azure Striker Gunvolt physical package version Japanese trailer!
