What is Gunvolt Records Cychronicle?
Gunvolt Records Cychronicle is new rhythm music game starring the songstresses of the Azure Striker Gunvolt series, Lumen, Lola, and Luxia singing music from the series’s rich history.
Players will time their button presses to a barrage of notes along two different lanes to earn high scores. The dual analog controls sync with the characters dancing in the 3D backgrounds for a fully immersive experience.
Gunvolt Records Cychronicle will release digitally for $14.99 USD, with DLC packs also available to expand the game’s track library.
A new rhythm experience where you’re in sync with the Muses! The notes flowing from the top of the screen come in various types: push the buttons to Tap Notes and Hold Notes, and move the sticks with Flick Notes and Slide Notes.
When you’re flicking in 8 different directions and sliding in arcs on the analog sticks, your movements will
synchronize with the dancing divas in the background, just as if you were dancing along with them.
In addition to gamepad controls, the Nintendo Switch version will feature an optional touchscreen mode as well.
Includes a sound player with full length vocal tracks!
All included tracks and planned DLC are selected from the vast library of acclaimed vocal tracks from the
Gunvolt series, including tracks used in the series 5 games, CD-only releases, and Gunvolt animated feature.
Players can listen to any of the music included in the game freely in the in-game music player. Use the included repeat and playlist functions to create your own listening mix!
The Muses add their charm and elegance!
The Muses, Lumen and Lola, alongside The Djinn, Luxia, dance with enchanting movement and provide their voices for a complete experience. Should repeated misses cause you to fail a song, their Anthem abilities will revive your run, allowing players of any skill level to enjoy the rhythm gameplay without worry.
