Azure Striker Gunvolt 2


Having released on the PlayStation 4, Switch, and 3DS, previously, Inti Creates has announced that their Mega Man-inspired action platformer, Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, will be making its way to Steam on June 22.

You can find a rundown of the game below courtesy of Inti Creates:

“The ultra-refined 2D side-scrolling action you remember from “Azure Striker Gunvolt” is recharged and better than ever!

Players take command of Gunvolt and make short work of enemies using his high-speed techniques and command of electricity just like before, but in Gunvolt 2, a new character joins the fray! As Copen, slam into enemies to lock on to them, then unleash a flurry of devastating homing shots to obliterate foes. Copen can also take to the skies using his “Bullit Dash” for extra mobility, and copy the abilities of defeated bosses to expand his arsenal.

The “Story Mode+” system, which showcases interactions between characters during the action, returns alongside over 20 songs performed by the virtual pop star, “The Muse”! To top it off, all of the game’s DLC is included!”

Kenny scored the original 3DS release a 4 out of 5 in his review back in 2016 saying, “Despite the uninspired and often downright invasive story segments, the core gameplay was consistently fun and engaging throughout the 7 hours it took me to complete both campaigns.”
