That’s all well and good, but perhaps you want to know more about the upcoming Azure Striker Gunvolt 3? Inti Creates has just revealed the first of the new antagonists you’ll face. They’re a group called ATEMs. They’re not related to the Sumeragi Group, but they are comprised of deadly warriors armed with Septimal powers. Those are known as ATEM Knights, and they swear fealty to the mighty ZedΩ. The first one that’s been shown off is named Serpentine, the Mystic Mist. She’s a devious fighter that fights with illusions formed from mist itself.
