Coming to Japan in only two weeks, Famitsu has a nice spread on Azure Striker Gunvolt in it’s latest issue, detailing the story and providing a few screenshots. As always we’ll have a translation on that article as it surfaces.


Nintendo of America has signed off on Azure Striker Gunvolt, meaning the game should be launching in the states fairly soon. On that note, Inti Creates intends to announce a release date soon.

The company shared today’s update on Twitter:


Inti Creates recently unveiled Lumen’s songs for Azure Striker Gunvolt. The first, “Beyond the Blue” can be listened to above at the start of the video. “Reincarnation” follows at around the 9-minute mark.


Azure Striker Gunvolt is coming out in Japan on August 20. Siliconera reports that the North American launch will take place “in the weeks that follow, if all goes as planned.”

At the moment, Inti Creates is currently working on plans for a potential European release, which may include several languages – unlike the North American version.

Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu has also commented on the decision to have partial voice-acting for Azure Striker Gunvolt in North America. This edition of the game only has voices during the action portions. There will not be any voices during conversations.

Mighty No. 9: The Animated Series was announced at Anime Expo 2014 this month with a teaser but not much else. Speaking with Polygon, Digital Frontier’s Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour shared a little more about what we can expect.

Osei-Kuffour told Polygon:

“That being said, there are parts of the Mighty No.9 universe that simply can’t be explored in the game. For instance, what does Beck do outside of his battles? How does he feel about the pressure on him to be the hero? What mistakes has he made as the hero? With this cartoon, we are trying to add to the Mighty No. 9 universe by filling in the parts gamers can’t see in the game.”

Other bits about the show include:

– Won’t follow the game’s plot completely
– Will adapt it to incorporate elements that make it comfortable for an episodic show
– Some of the main cast’s character traits have been “revisited”
– This will allow for more interesting, varied stories
– The “essence” of each character will be close to that of their game counterpart
– The cartoon gives companions such as Beck’s assistant Call their own time to shine
– The robotic girl, who has “no emotion at all,” will constantly and playfully clash with Beck
– Beck feels human emotions and is very excitable
– The cartoon will further explore their relationship in addition to how the pair get along with two other game characters, Dr. White and Dr. Sanda
– Much of the show will focus on Beck learning to manage his emotions and function as a Mighty Number
– Beck doesn’t want to save the world and his “human heart” makes him an anxious combatant and a clumsy fighter
– Action-packed show that hopes to glean laughs from both children and adults
– It bears Inafune’s stamp of approval as well as a ton of wiggle room for players to get to know the characters on a deeper level


About a day ago, Inti Creates released another batch of screenshots and information for Azure Striker Gunvolt. The latest details, which have since been translated, can be found after the break.

Inti Creates published a new batch of Azure Striker Gunvolt screenshots and art, which you can find in the gallery above. We also have a final Japanese release date: August 20. The game is priced at 1,960 yen.

Inti Creates was originally planning on including English voices in the North American release of Azure Striker Gunvolt. However, this is no longer in the cards.

The official Azure Striker Gunvolt Twitter account confirms:

Separate from the topic of voice acting, Inti Creates said that Azure Striker Gunvolt won’t have DLC.
