Update on the Azure Striker Gunvolt Anime OVA

Good day, Strikers! As things start wrapping up around here while we prepare to say goodbye to 2016, I wanted to take a minute to update you guys on where we stand on the Gunvolt anime OVA. We originally said in the trailer (which you can see below) that it would be released in Winter of 2016, however, due to various circumstances, releasing before the year ends is unfortunately not going to be able to happen.

Now, with that being said, the “Winter” part of that original release time-frame still holds true, we just unfortunately were unable to meet the “2016” part. We are going to release it as soon as we possibly can worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Considering the vast majority of things we need to do to release it are¬†now done, it really won’t be much longer now.

Right now, we are aiming towards releasing the Gunvolt anime in North America, Europe, and Japan next month (January 2017), so we will keep doing what we can to make that happen. As soon as we have a release date(s) nailed down, we will share that information with you guys. Thanks for your understanding, and we hope you enjoy the anime when it comes out! :)

Keep on Striking,

Matt Papa
Gunvolt Assistant Producer

    Thanks for the update. Can’t wait.

    Why release it on the 3DS eShop? I mean, I love the 3DS but its far from being a good media platform, couldn’t you usw… Idk, iTunes/Play Store?

      maybe it will be like a timed exclusive.

    I want to ask something. So lumen merges with joule to stop her from dieying and most likely goes dorment or dies. Then joule and mytyl merge which somepeople say kills joule but there is a secret cutscene where they say joule is a living glaive or something and was once part of mytyl and it’s why she can’t talk. I think the reason mytyl now has amnesia after gunvolt 2 could be because she lost her powers. It kind of like red vs blue with the alpha AI. It is split into multiple copies but all of them are merged into one AI calls epsilon and have all there own memories. It may be the same here with mytyl having joules memories but just can’t remember at this point. And as the power of the the muse is in the amulent, that could mean we could see lumen again or, mytyl has lumen buried with her mind somewhere but is dorment due to the fact she has no septimal powers.

    I mean…will it eventually be posted somewhere else other than the eShop? I would like to watch it on an actual website than a 3DS but if that’s all it’s gonna be on then whatever..
