Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 Reveals New Official 4-Minute Music Video; “Virtue of the Dawn” by Luxia

Developer Inti Creates has shared a new official music video of their recently released 2D action title, Azure Striker Gunvolt 3. Titled “Virtue of the Dawn,” this 4-minute performance features “The Djinn” Luxia singing the praises of ZedΩ.

The talent behind this performance is listed below:

  • Lyrics: Hakofactory
  • Composition: Ryo Yoshinaga
  • Arrangement: Coremocha
  • Performed By Luxia (Riko Sasaki)
  • Choreography: Ayano Ishimuroya

The  song’s full lyrics are quoted below:

His soul set ablaze, he rises once again
Shadows of trial and rebirth loom, signaling the end…

An arid ocean that knows naught but love
A secluded hamlet, joys of life abundant

Thy gaze pierces the starlit sky
Vast, yet hollow, one can only ponder why

Eyes fixed on the light that illuminates the future
Flames of earnest desire burn within the lake of ruin

All is as foreseen, and in this moment I must concede
This story, spun by thine hands, proves far too much to bear
The signs are written in the sky
That boundless, unattainable sky

Scorched land, tones of dulcet kind
Right and wrong exist in twine

Virtuous falsehoods, abandoned for one’s ideals
Birds grovel, beasts take flight, yet still they laugh

Myriad eyes reflect thy gaze hereby
Still, yet overwhelming, one can only ponder why…

“May your each and every desire be granted!
For no future awaits those who abandon the virtuous dawn! ♪”

Strip yourself of needless affections
Your quest is set, your destination clear
So embrace the bonds you hold dear
Only they will provide the directions
For this journey, whose end remains unclear…

His soul set ablaze, he rises once again
Shadows of trial and rebirth loom near

All is as foreseen, and in this moment I must concede
This story, spun by thine hands, proves far too much to bear
Yet this long, long journey shall not end prematurely

Seated you are, no doubt in mind
Facing that boundless, unattainable sky
