Inti Creates have announced Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack will be heading to PlayStation 4.

As detailed on the official website, the game contains both Azure Striker Gunvolt, and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2.

The PlayStation 4 version also comes with all DLC for both games, 60 FPS, DualShock 4 vibration, an adjusted screen layout, gameplay balance adjustments, and language support for English, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, and Traditional Chinese.

In addition, a new theme song by the game’s virtual idol Lumen (voiced by megu Sakurugawa) will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 version. It should be noted that when the player achieves a certain score in a stage, the stage’s soundtrack introduces vocals.

Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack brings the electrifying 2D side-scrolling action games “Azure Striker Gunvolt” and “Azure Striker Gunvolt 2”, which previously made their home on the Nintendo 3DS, onto the Nintendo Switch in one single package.

In “Azure Striker Gunvolt”, you take control of Gunvolt’s high-speed mobility and repertoire of electrical attacks to make short work of your enemies. As an “adept” who possesses supernatural “septimal powers,” Gunvolt fights for the freedom of the nation from the tyrannical rule of the massive conglomerate known as the Sumeragi Group and the invasion of a super-powerful group of adepts known as Eden.

Azure Striker Gunvolt’s deep storyline plays out both during breaks in the action and in the thick of battle too! Featuring a robust cast of characters that are fully voiced (in Japanese) and over 25 vocal tracks performed by characters in the game, the world of Gunvolt provides excitement at every turn.
