Azure Striker Gunvolt’s Japanese voice mode still in the works, will be included in the Striker Pack
Last August, Inti Creates said that Azure Striker Gunvolt would be receiving an update which would add Japanese voices. Although it has still yet to be released, the good news is that it’s still on the way. Moreover, the Japanese voice mode will absolutely be included in the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack.
Here’s the news from Inti Creates:
“Also, in regards to the Japanese Voice Mode for Azure Striker Gunvolt 1 on the 3DS, we are sorry that it is taking as long as it has to give you any concrete information. At this point, we can tell you that the Japanese Voice Mode will definitely be included in the Striker Pack for sure. Just like the Steam version, it will have all of the voices back in place and the new translation to go along with said voices. As for any sort of patch/update to the digital version of GV1, as soon as we have something for you, we will not hesitate to announce it.”
Speaking of the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack, it’s late September launch isn’t entirely set in stone. According to Inti Creates, it “may extend slightly into October by a few days.”
Lastly, aside from that, today’s news update also includes official details on the Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 bosses Gibril and Asroc. Head past the break for the latest on these two characters.
Gibril, “The Full Metal Jacket” (VA: Maya Enoyoshi)
“You’ll pay for that, buddy-boy…and it’s going to hurt!”
Gibril is an adept whose “Metallon” septima gives her the ability to control metal. She has a cruel, yet sadistic personality, but more than either of those her true nature is quite masochistic. She harbors great insecurities about her height, and she tends to express those insecurities by acting out in fits of pure rage. So, within the ranks of Eden, it is quite taboo to say words like “small” or “tiny” when she is around.
During battle, she can create metal-based weapons while in her “Alchemist Mode”, utilize her high-speed “Beast Mode” form, and her most powerful form, “Crisis Beast Mode”.
Asroc, “The Pygmalion Furnace” (VA: Kazuki Ohta)
“Now gain wisdom by the fire of the Galette Krone!”
His “Puppetmaster” septima grants him the ability to extend special energy wires from his fingertips that allow him to power-up and control machines.
He once had a dream of owning an pastry shop par excellence, but became discouraged about his dream after experiencing constant discrimination at the hands of non-adepts.
Before he knew it, he became obsessed with the idea of taking revenge on them, and has kept that fire going is his heart ever since.
Asroc controls a robot named “Galette Krone”, which was developed by Eden to be used with his Puppetmaster septima. This is the only way to control it, since it’s not a normal functioning robot.
