Inti Creates announced that their 2D action game, Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX, will also release on Xbox One, alongside PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on September 26. This will be the first time that a Gunvolt title will appear on both a PS4 or Xbox console.
Additionally, the developer released a new gameplay trailer which catches fans up to the story of Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX. The trailer also serves as a character introduction and guide to playing a Copen, the game’s protagonist. During gameplay, Copen will be able to earn points that can be used to upgrade Copen.
Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX will branch away from the series’ mainline protagonist, Gunvolt, and instead focus on the anti-hero, Copen. The developer has stressed that while fans of the series will appreciate some of the small nods to previous entries, this is a stand-alone title and can be played without knowledge of the previous games.
When it comes to playing as Copen, players will need to dash around the screen and tag enemies to unleash a barrage of cannon fire at them. It ultimately serves as an excellent way to chain together combos given that you acquire extra bullets as you dash and destroy enemies.
