Introducing Gibril and Asroc, the Last 2 Members of “The Seven” + Some GV Updates

Good day to all you Azure Strikers out there! We thought it was the proper time to introduce the final two members of The Seven, but before we do that we wanna bring all you Gunvolters up to speed on what’s going on with Gunvolt right now. With the release of Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 / Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack coming up toward the end of next month on the Nintendo 3DS, we wanted to announce that pre-orders for the Striker Pack are available at Gamestop, AmazonBest Buy and others in North America! Keep in mind that the release date of the Striker Pack may extend slightly into October by a few days. As for our friends in Europe who are waiting for information about the Striker Pack there, we do not have any announcements of any kind yet, but rest assured that we haven’t forgotten about you.

Also, in regards to the Japanese Voice Mode for Azure Striker Gunvolt 1 on the 3DS, we are sorry that it is taking as long as it has to give you any concrete information. At this point, we can tell you that the Japanese Voice Mode will definitely be included in the Striker Pack for sure. Just like the Steam version, it will have all of the voices back in place and the new translation to go along with said voices. As for any sort of patch/update to the digital version of GV1, as soon as we have something for you, we will not hesitate to announce it.

Oh, and one more thing. The Azure Striker Gunvolt anime is coming along nicely, and it looks AWESOME! :D

Now, without further adieu, it’s time to meet Gibril and Asroc!

Gibril, “The Full Metal Jacket” (VA: Maya Enoyoshi)
“You’ll pay for that, buddy-boy…and it’s going to hurt!”

Gibril is an adept whose “Metallon” septima gives her the ability to control metal. She has a cruel, yet sadistic personality, but more than either of those her true nature is quite masochistic. She harbors great insecurities about her height, and she tends to express those insecurities by acting out in fits of pure rage. So, within the ranks of Eden, it is quite taboo to say words like “small” or “tiny” when she is around.

During battle, she can create metal-based weapons while in her “Alchemist Mode”, utilize her high-speed “Beast Mode” form, and her most powerful form, “Crisis Beast Mode”.

Asroc, “The Pygmalion Furnace” (VA: Kazuki Ohta)
“Now gain wisdom by the fire of the Galette Krone!”

His “Puppetmaster” septima grants him the ability to extend special energy wires from his fingertips that allow him to power-up and control machines.

He once had a dream of owning an pastry shop par excellence, but became discouraged about his dream after experiencing constant discrimination at the hands of non-adepts.
Before he knew it, he became obsessed with the idea of taking revenge on them, and has kept that fire going is his heart ever since.

Asroc controls a robot named “Galette Krone”, which was developed by Eden to be used with his Puppetmaster septima. This is the only way to control it, since it’s not a normal functioning robot.

 

Keep on Striking,

    I feel your pain, Gibril.
    I’m not short, I simply have a reduced hitbox!

  • DuoDynamo

    Gibril can be really dangerous. Just imagine; with her metal controlling septima, she could easily manipulate the iron in one’s blood.

    • Никита Скрылёв

      Maybe it’s like in Milas’ case, where she can’t control unpure metals. And, since blood in not, well, metal…

  • Oculin

    While I appreciate the update, it’s been almost a year since you guys announced the Gunvolt 1 patch and you still can’t stick a date? We’re pretty much still at the same point of “It’s going to come eventually.” Directing people to the physical copy and steam version kills my confidence even more.

    I understand there was PR pressure at the time to satisfy 3DS fans, but I kind of wish you just didn’t say anything so I could have bought the steam release and been done with it a year ago.

    Jokes on me cause I’ll buy physical release since I really have zero faith in that patch launching any time soon. I’m sure you guys have your reasons, but it’s a bit late.

    No hard feelings, just frustrated from waiting around a whole year for it not even come out.

    “As for any sort of patch/update to the digital version of GV1, as soon
    as we have something for you, we will not hesitate to announce it.”

    Sounds like some hardcore backpedaling getting ready to happen.

      A shame. What has taken things so long?

    I really wish of Steam Version of Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. I really don’t feel like purchasing a 3DS Capture Card it’s such a hassle to get it or come a cross one. I really want to stream the game.

  • Giro Takamishi

    So we can accept that the digital ver of GV1 won’t be updated, right? What I really wanna know is, will GV2 comes to Brazil eShop alongside USA’s? I don’t really want to deal with the same problem that GV1 had about this.

  • Ziggy

    If the physical double pack version will get the update, then digital version will surely get it also. Otherwise this is some Mighty No 9 level of bs.

    I have both games as digital version and I will not double dip for PC in Steam or for 3DS with the physical version.
