During NewGame+ Expo, Inti Creates announced that their 2D action game, Azure Striker Gunvolt 3, will launch on Nintendo Switch on July 28, 2022, for $29.99.
The game will release digitally on the eShop with Limited Run Games handling the physical version. The Gunvolt series began in 2014 on the 3DS and received a sequel in 2016. After releasing on various platforms and even receiving a spin-off, the series will continue with Azure Striker Gunvolt 3.
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. Players will be able to use new abilities and systems that bring the series to a new generation of gamers.
Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 introduces a new character, Kirin, who utilizes quick sword and throwing abilities in combat. She can destroy enemies in an instant 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.
