On November 29
It’s kind of amazing how far the Azure Striker Gunvolt series has come.
I’ve talked about it quite a bit over the past few years, but multiple core iterations and several spinoffs: that’s quite the win for Inti Creates, who has managed to craft multiple new IPs and revivals in recent years. They’re really killing it year after year; and hopefully Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 will continue that trend.
Due out on Switch at some point next year, Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 brings back the titular Gunvolt after Copen took the spotlight away with his spinoff, as well as the sword-wielding newcomer Kirin. As is tradition it was announced at BitSummit earlier this year, but since then we’ve been waiting for any real news beyond the basics. It won’t be much longer now, though.
Inti Create says that we’ll get to peek behind the curtain soon enough, as the game will be shown to the public for the first time ever at the Akihabara UDX digital games expo on November 29. The studio says that “playable demos will be on-hand” as well. That’s a little over a month! I’m beyond excited, as I’m pumped to see how Kirin plays. Hopefully she does the old school melee style justice: I know Inti Creates is capable of it.
