Here’s some news I’ve been waiting to hear, and am now happy to share. Inti Creates has just revealed during the NGPX that Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 is coming out very soon. It’s officially releasing digitally on July 28th for Nintendo Switch! And for you fans of physical copies, it’ll be coming to LRG at some point as well. As a follower of Inti Creates and the Gunvolt series, this is truly exciting.

At first, I thought from recent news that the primary protagonist in Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 was the newly revealed battle priestess, Kirin. But it seems that Inti has gone a similar route to Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 here, and the game will feature a duo of main characters. One is obviously Kirin, and the other is the titular hero himself, Gunvolt. But after watching the trailer, it seems Gunvolt has upgraded his powers to a level beyond most Adepts. It looks like Kirin and Gunvolt start at odds, but begrudgingly join forces. Better yet, you can literally switch between Gunvolt and Kirin on the fly, leading to some truly energetic combat.

If that wasn’t exciting enough for fans of the series, now Gunvolt himself can use something called Image Pulses to summon familiar faces from the games to fight on his behalf. Supposedly there’s over 150 varieties of these types of characters to collect, which is a staggering amount to consider.
