Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 Heads to PC June 22

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2

Developer Inti Creates have announced that Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 will be heading to Windows PC, via Steam, along with a release date.

Inspired by (and created by the developers of) the Megaman Zero and Megaman ZX series’, players blast through 2D side-scrolling stages, where idols sing if you do exceptionally well.

Alongside the titular Gunvolt and his electric-based powers, players can also play as Copen, ramming into foes, using homing shots, and copying the abilities of defeated foes.  This version will also include all prior DLC.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

The ultra-refined 2D side-scrolling action you remember from “Azure Striker Gunvolt” is recharged and better than ever!

Players take command of Gunvolt and make short work of enemies using his high-speed techniques and command of electricity just like before, but in Gunvolt 2, a new character joins the fray! As Copen, slam into enemies to lock on to them, then unleash a flurry of devastating homing shots to obliterate foes. Copen can also take to the skies using his “Bullit Dash” for extra mobility, and copy the abilities of defeated bosses to expand his arsenal.

The “Story Mode+” system, which showcases interactions between characters during the action, returns alongside over 20 songs performed by the virtual pop star, “The Muse”! To top it off, all of the game’s DLC is included!

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is available on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and June 22nd on Windows PC (via Steam). In case you missed it, you can find our review here.

Both it and the original Azure Striker Gunvolt are bundled together in Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack, available on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and PlayStation 4.
