During a panel at PAX Prime 2015 today, Inti Creates made an announcement about Azure Striker Gunvolt. The company revealed that an update is planned to add Japanese voices to the game.

The Inti Creates Twitter account also shared the news:

At this time, it’s unknown when the update will be made available.

During a session at Too Many Games, Inti Creates announced that Azure Striker Gunvolt has seen over 120,000 downloads. The most recent milestone of 110,000 downloads was confirmed in late April.

Inti Creates also said that the company currently consists of roughly 100 staffers. The Azure Striker Gunvolt team is made up of about 40 people.


Inti Creates announced on Twitter today that Azure Striker Gunvolt has now been downloaded over 110,000 times. To celebrate the milestone, one of the game’s character artists created a new piece, which we’ve attached above.

Inti Creates’ Twitter message reads:

Azure Striker Gunvolt reached 90,000 downloads back in January. It was later confirmed in mid-March that there had been over 100,000 downloads.


Three separate 3DS themes for Azure Striker Gunvolt will launch alongside the game on release day. More details to come later in the week so stay tuned!


Update: Bumped to the top, as the listing has been pulled. Was it discovered too early? Or was it a mistake?

Azure Striker Gunvolt appears to finally be coming to Europe next week, based on a listing from the eShop. The game will apparently arrive on April 4 for €12.99.

This date hasn’t been officially confirmed just yet, but eShop listings tend to be spot on these days. We’ll let you know if/when an announcement is made.
