    If you remember last year, Inti Creates announced a new game in the Gunvolt series that was in development. Inti Creates paid a visited the Bit Summit 7 game showcase this weekend to reveal more details about the upcoming game. Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX will not star the titular Azure Striker, but instead Copen will be featured as the playable character. This game is described as allowing the player to "experience the apex of 2D action" by exceeding the intense action and speed the previous games had while making it look stylish and remain accessible to newcomers of the series.

    The game is due for release September 26 for Nintendo Switch, Steam, and to a surprise, Playstation 4 which marks the first time the series has been feature on the console. The game will be $14.99 digital download and will have DLC with more details about it at a later date. If you missed the reveal, a updated trailer is available to catch you up to speed.

    I like how they've evolved the gameplay mechanics, even though honestly I'll buy anything with 'Gunvolt' in the title. They've got the excitement of the MMX formula down to a science.

    Done. I haven't figured out how to promote threads to the front page yet, sorry. I'll keep looking for the option.

    Edit: And there it is. :)

    It's quite possible the game could be compiled, but it's not likely. The game is $14.99 A compilation of all three on ps4 disc would be nice priced at $40-$60. As for switch, they already have compilation of the two previous games for $40 I don't know if it is in their interest to sell a $15 game retail, that's very uncommon. :unsure:

    Of course I hope the previous gunvolt games come to ps4, and has 4K. been a long time waiting for it. :P

    Gambia, The
    This seems like a level pack. New things?

    And I really dislike the announcer voice.

    Looks like a mixture of Azure Striker, Mega Man ZX, and Might No 9 (all the dash attacks). *shrug* Haven't really played the Azure Strike very much, though, except that its story sounded really silly. :/

    I actually hated playing as Copen so I'm not really thrilled about this game tbh. It doesn't help that Copen is unlikable in Gunvolt 2.

    He's not really likable in the first game, either.

    For those unfamiliar, Gunvolt as a universe is basically "Mega Man, but humans with Robot Master Powers". And the villains have these powers cranked up to 15 because of technology or the power of the Muse (AKA the McGuffin).

    Excellent series, a DEFINITE if you're a Mega Man X, Z, or ZX fan, but disputably FAR faster paced.

    Am I the only one who feel the title could have been better? Azure Striker Gunvolt at least sounds like it makes sense. But Luminous Avenger iX just doesn't seem to sound cool or even explain the lead character in anyway. Doesn't even feature Copen's name. :blink:

    Finally! I was almost afraid they had forgotten it.
    Looking forwards to it! I've loved all the GV games so far! This might be another reason for me to finally get a Switch, although if the Steam port is better than the first, I might just go that route. And then buy it again if I get a Switch. :3
    I just want Inti to keep making great games.
    EDIT:
    Wait, I thought this was going to be a prequel? This looks a lot like a sequel...
    Hm...

    Somehow I can't get myself into these Gunvolt games, despite being big fans of the MMX and MMZ series myself...

    It's sequal to 2, or else Lola wouldn't have a Muse/Idol form.

    He probably doesn't want his name being known since he has part of the Muse's power in Lola. Luminous Avenger might be what they call him, and Ix/iX is what he calls himself as an alias. IX is also part of the "Evo IX" that Mitsubishi sold. Copen/Acura (his english/Japanese names) are both car related too, afterall.
