Azure Striker Gunvolt is a 3DS eShop game from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, and it looks like this delightful little treasure may be heading west after all.
A newly-launched English-language website has a few bits and pieces about the game’s backstory and characters along with some screenshots and assets, but the two most interesting bits are the English-language logo and the comment “ESRB rating pending”, suggesting localisation is on the cards.
Developed by Inti Creates, the Capcom veteran-heavy indie also working with Inafune’s Comcept on Mighty No. 9, Azure Striker Gunvolt is a side-scrolling affair in which the main character uses electricity attacks. It was unveiled at at BitSummit in Koyoto along with two new PS4 indies.
You can see the first trailer, with introduction from Inafune, below.
