Inti Creates has shared new details about Azure Striker Gunvolt. This time around, we have information about the game’s Swordsmen.

You can find today’s details rounded up below:

– Individuals with special powers are called “psychics”
– Normally, psychics possess psychic elements within their bodies that allow them to use their powers
– The Sumeragi Corporation has taken seven powerful psychics and extracted their psychic elements into sword-shaped devices
– These 7 psychics are known as “Swordsmen”
– They serve as Azure Striker Gunvolt’s bosses
– Their swords allow them to stay out of trouble and live ordinary lives
– These swords can be used remotely to control any unwanted bursts of powers
– In cases of emergency, Sumeragi’s monitoring facility gives them access to these swords and they fuse with them, triggering a transformation dubbed “weaponization”

Here’s a look at three of these Swordsmen you’ll fight in Azure Striker Gunvolt:


– Patrols Sumeragi’s chemical plant complex
– Has the psychic power “Explosion”
– He was originally a notorious gang leader, but fell in love with Lumen’s voice and enlisted as part of Sumeragi’s private army
– Daytona can compress thermal energy into small spheres called Angry Bombs that explode on impact
– He can also enflame his legs and his sword of choice is “Lord of Fire”
– Performs a leg sweep with explosive velocity
– Daytona fires shells in three directions
– He uses wall jumps to climb up a pillar of flames while scattering shells all over the ground to immobilize GV, then performs a drop kick
– Daytona slams GV with an axe kick engulfed in flames
– Daytona performs a sudden direction shift in midair during a Unicorn Drop, then kicks the air to produces a barrage of small energy projectiles
– Special Ability: Daytona fires blazing projectiles across the screen while enjoying a temporary defense boost


– Elise was being held prisoner by Sumeragi
– Has the ultimate psychic power known as “Rebirth”
– Rebirth: manipulate the soul into spinning out life for eternity
– Sumeragi were attempting to implant Eise’s brain with a more aggressive persona that ended up taking control of her original, weak-willed persona
– Sumeragi wasn’t able to contain her power
– This resulted in a rampage that leveled the research facility she was being held at
– Uses the “Living Blade” sword
– Controls “vipers” that she can shape into daggers
– After being thrown, she can make them come back to life as zombies
– Elise wraps her whip around a pole and travels rapidly around the screen
– Elise throws a dagger. If it hits the ground, it turns into a viper that attacks GV
– Elise emits a petrifying gaze. While petrified, GV is unable to move and suffers much greater damage than usual. The effect can be broken by wiggling around the Circle Pad
– Elise’s two personas attack GV together using both whips and daggers
– Special Ability: Destroying one of Elise’s personas will cause the other persona to resurrect her


– Swordsman
– Was held prisoner by Sumeragi
– Before being captured, he was a handsome, popular man
– No trace of this man remains today
– Can use the “Fly” ability
– He can also turn his flesh into fly-shaped particles of energy that can dismantle any matter and incorporate it into his body
– Repeated experimentation on Stratos has caused his powers to become too powerful for even his Sword, “Lizardslayer” to control
– S.E.E.D. drug keeps him in check
– This is extracted from the experimental plant ViVid
– Stratos, in fly form, turns into a ball and charges at GV
– Stratos lays eggs in the ground. Flies hatch from the eggs and attack GV at once
– Stratos transforms into a giant mouth that sprouts from the ground and chases GV, repeatedly trying to swallow him whole
– Stratos’ body splits in two and deploys flies against GV. The fly attacks can be blocked with the Lightning Ring Shield, but the two Stratoses will be charging at GV the whole time.
– Special Ability: Stratos gathers flies from devices on the right and left sides of the screen to turn into a giant and deliver a single devastating attack
– Either Stratos needs to be defeated or the devices need to be destroyed before the transformation is complete

Azure Striker Gunvolt is nearing completion. The game’s Twitter account posted a message today confirming that development will finish “soon.”

It reads:

Azure Striker Gunvolt is due out sometime this summer.


Inti Creates shared photos of Gunvolt and Lumen’s prototype design during Azure Striker Gunvolt’s early days of development. Check it out below:


Azure Striker Gunvolt isn’t the only independent title Inti Creates is working on. A second self-funded project is also planned, according to Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu.

Aizu told Siliconera:

“We are running five projects [at the moment], And there is one project, apart from Gunvolt, that uses self-funding. However, that may change in the future—whether we finance it entirely ourselves or not.”

“We also run projects in cooperation [with other companies]. If Gunvolt succeeds, we can increase our self-published projects. So please support Inti Creates!”

Aizu also said the following when asked about Inti Creates’ split in development staff between original development and games being developed and funded by other publishers:

“At first, we make a prototype with a small number of people, and then increase the staff assigned to it at the production stage. On the other hand, most games for publishers make use of a great number of people from the beginning. Thus, when making games for publishers, the staff ratio increases.”

“If Gunvolt or Mighty No. 9 is a hit, I think that we may increase the ratio of our staff assigned to original development to half. But at the same time, we won’t stop development for publishers.”


Keiji Inafune met with Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu earlier today to discuss a few items pertaining to Azure Striker Gunvolt.

According to the game’s official Twitter account, Gunvolt will be modified in the US version once again so that the character’s braided hair will be kept in tact. This was originally removed from the Japanese version – as shown above.

The Azure Striker Gunvolt Twitter account also touched on Gunvolt’s midriff:
