How did you folks like the main visual that we released for Azure Striker Gunvolt 2? As you can see, there are a ton of new characters that will make their debut in this game, but there are some familiar faces too! Today, we are going to introduce the two Muses of Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, Joule and a brand new character, Lola!
Joule exists completely in the form of a spirit residing inside Gunvolt’s body. She once existed as a young Adept girl, but upon her untimely death, her spirit was released from her physical body and now exists only in that form. Once a very shy girl, she has become much bolder since the events of the previous game, in some ways becoming more like her former alter ego, the virtual pop star Lumen. Her septimal power is The Muse, which enables her to fully synchronize with Gunvolt and increase his abilities through the power of her singing. In her previous form as Lumen, she had a more adult-like appearance, but after a certain incident, she lost a large amount of her power and her appearance changed into a more child-like form.
Lola (VA: Yurika Endou)
Lola is an Autonomous Combat Pod (ACP) designed to regulate the control of Copen’s personal array of combat drones, also known as bits. Because of this, she thinks of herself as kind of Copen’s official guardian, for better or for worse. During her AI development period, she would often serve as a conversational partner for Copen’s little sister. Through this, she picked up the habit of referring to Copen as “Boss.” At a certain point in the story, she gains the abilities of The Muse, just like Joule.
We will be sure to have more character introductions and more looks into the world of Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 as we get closer to its Summer 2016 release!
