Though it’s been a little while since I covered Azure Striker Gunvolt, as a fan of Inti Creates I felt the need to write something today. While I absolutely adored Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 on my 3DS, great games can always look better. It was later ported to both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. But today it’s coming somewhere that not only console fans can appreciate it – Steam!
As someone that just covered a classic like Persona 4 Golden on Steam, I’m happy that Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is finally arriving there. The game has you play as both Copen and Gunvolt as you fight for justice and to save those you love, with both tales intersecting in meaningful ways. Best of all, the Steam version will have the same upgrades that the late console ports received. So you’ll be playing the very best possible version of this great platformer game.
If you somehow have no idea what Azure Striker Gunvolt is all about, make sure to read the blurb below and definitely check out the Steam page and official trailer. You won’t have long to wait either way, since Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 comes to Steam in just a week, on June 22nd!
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”!
