Once More Into the Breach
As a longtime fan of the games of Inti Creates, this is heady news to share. Following on the success of Azure Striker Gunvolt, they crafted a new side story in Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX. Though they announced a sequel during BitSummit, today we have much more information about Luminous Avenger iX 2. First and most importantly, it’s coming to PC, Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Series X|S. What’s even more exciting is it’s coming out pretty soon, launching on January 27th of 2022!
For those longing for more details, fret not. We now can share that Luminous Avenger iX 2 takes place in a strange new world. Copen is investigating mysterious technology which suddenly creates a wormhole, sucking him, Lola and Kohaku inside. They arrive in a world of robotic descendants called Workers, who toil around something called the Grave Pillar. This mysterious tower supposedly holds all sorts of ancient information, which is perhaps vital for Copen and friends to find a way home.
Unfortunately for Copen and company, this world isn’t undefended. The Grave Pillar is protected by dangerous foes called the Gravekeepers. While I’m certain they’ll make for powerful adversaries, Copen has one thing in his favor. He builds unique armor that allows him to seamlessly transition between two different forms. One is called Break-Shift, and utilizes a Razor Wheel and Recoil Dash for close combat. The other is called Bullit-Shift, and is more focused on speed at the expense of defense.
One brand new character in Luminous Avenger iX 2 is named Null. She’s an innocent and sweet Worker girl that takes care of others. She always strives to help everyone, robot or human, in her effort to fulfill the desires of the Creator.
I personally am quite excited about Luminous Avenger iX 2. You can check out the website here, and be sure to watch the new music video below!
