Developer Inti Creates has announced that their 2D action platformer, Azure Striker Gunvolt 3, will be receiving five free monthly updates, with the first arriving tomorrow. This initial content update will implement the new playable character “Kirin XX” and the new Gunvolt-only game mode “D-nizer Mode”

You can view the trailer announcing these upcoming updates below:

Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 is supervised by Keiji Inafune, who has been working closely with director Yoshihisa Tsuda to put together this new entry of the 2D-action series. As a result, players will be able to use new abilities and systems that bring the series to a new generation of fans.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 introduces a new character, Kirin, who utilizes quick sword and throwing abilities in combat. She can destroy enemies instantly using her “Arc Chain” ability and fast movement. She can also deflect projectiles using her sword. Furthermore, Gonvolt will also be playable and brings his own twist on his classic playstyle.

A new feature called Image Pulse is usable by Gunvolt, which allows him to summon comrades and drives from the past for a special attack. There are over 150 different Pulses that can be collected.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 is now available on Nintendo Switch.  A PC release via Steam has been confirmed for Winter 2022.
