Posted on February 20, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS eShop, News, Videos | 0 Likes


During MAGFest today, Keiji Inafune and Inti Creates hosted a panel. Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 was featured during the event and we finally received an update as to what’s happening with the project.

First, it’s been revealed that Gunvolt will have a new design in the game. Inti Creates redid all of the character sprites in order to achieve this. Also teased was “a whole lot of stuff” that fans have yet to see. The team is spending a ton of time to create “the best high-quality game they possibly can.” Unfortunately, there’s still no word on a release date, but Inti Creates CEO said the developers are “working very hard to be able to get you guys the sequel to Azure Striker Gunvolt as soon as we can.”

Lastly, and most significantly, the first gameplay trailer for Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. We have it the off-screen video below.

    Mighty No.9’s forth delay confirmed.

      I’m predicting Mighty No. 9 to release close to or after the 2-year anniversary of Azure Striker Gunvolt… which is kinda sad, considering 2 Gunvolt games (and a spin-off) happened in that same timeframe.

      I was at this Panel and Inafune (for what it’s worth) personally apoligized for the delay. He said they are trying to do a simultaneous release for Japan, North America, and Europe across all announced consoles and platforms. Basically it works out to 24 master ROMs needed and they crrently have about 20 ready to go. Won’t be much longer.

  • Jettythesunfish

    Dunno about you guys, but I’m shocked!

  • Burning Gravity

    Looks like more of the same, but I’m down for that. Even if the Japanese music isn’t really my thing. (And I play lots of Japanese games, I just prefer to hear English…)

    • YoungTheFish

      It’s not like you can hear J-pop all that often anyway… (but then again maybe I’m just bad at the game)

  • Rafael Bueno

    more Promising than Fart no. 9

    • Dascylus

      The funny thing is the first Gunvolt was announced after the Mighty No. 9 kickstarter campaign… and came out in 2014.

  • Reggie

    It’s Gunvolt 2, therefore I am a lot more confident about this than MN9.

    • PlayerThree

      At this rate MN9 2 is going to be out sooner than MN9!

      • Reggie

        Don’t be silly. Comcept is incompetent, but they’re not that incompetent.

  • marineal

    Gunvolt deserves a physical release.

  • AquaBat

    All it is is a change of costume, and he keeps the awful hair braid.

    And Keiji “Hey by the way since you’re helping me with my awful game let me give you an idea for an awful game mechanic in your game” Inafune is STILL involved with development.

    Not exactly selling me on the sequel.

    • Jettythesunfish

      I dunno, the original Gunvolt was a great game. I’m already charged for the sequel!

  • Fandangle

    Lets hope 8-4 doesn’t touch this one with a 10 foot pole.

    • GH56734

      It probably is. Just hope JP version didn’t suffer much.

      • Fandangle

        Didn’t it get retranslated when they released it on steam with ALL the dialogue in the game?

        • Kiwi

          That it did. Matt Papa re-translated the whole script himself. I think he joined Inti late into the development of the first game so they didn’t have any native English speaker in the company to really supervise 8-4’s translation but that’s just my speculation.

        • GH56734

          The retranslation kept many of the dubious translation changes of the original (characterization, names, etc).

    • Addy the Wanderer

      Don’t you dare ruin this game for me like you did XCX.

      • Fandangle

        Did you know that 8-4 cut around 80% of the dialogue from the game because they simply didn’t want to translate it? They removed a LOT of characterization and mid level dialogue simply because they were incredibly lazy.

        • Addy the Wanderer

          I could care less about missing dialogue. I just want to play my games, not wondering if Lightning Boy and Girl Used for Evil Means are gonna get it on!

          • Fandangle

            Well that’s good for you and all, but some people realize that were adults in an adult world and enjoy all things in the media and don’t want them messed up because some child is getting mad that people are enjoying something they don’t like.

  • Rigalic Reign

    So long as the translators don’t… improvise… we’ll be alright cause if we do they’ll be alight! Ha… Non-censored humor always makes me chuckle

  • Aline Piroutek

    The games is not so different from the past ones but I like it. As any Megaman game.
    I cannot make fun of Call of Duty games anymore.

  • PlayerThree

    Did the 3DS version ever become on-par with the Steam version? Or is that last update still in the works?
