More like Comcept art…wait, wrong Mega Man clone company

Keiji Inafune’s other not Mega Man game, Azure Striker: Gunvolt, is coming to Japan (via 3DS eShop) on August 20. No word on a specific North American release date. Inti Creates’ Takuya Aizu explained through a string of tweets,

We can not announce the release date of GUNVOLT of the NA version. Because we’re novice as a Publisher. We didn’t have taxpayer identification number of US until yesterday. We can’t predict what kind of problem is going to happen in the future. However, we are preparing to be able to release a NA version without delay from the JP version. Please wait for the announcement.”

So here’s a bunch of nice pictures to hold you over.
