Azure Striker Gunvolt is getting a sequel.


Azure Striker Gunvolt developer Inti Creates has confirmed that the sidescroller has been popular enough to warrant a second instalment.

The sequel will also be released on 3DS, the team said on Facebook.

Very little information is available at present, unfortunately.

“As time goes on we will have more information, but for now, we are happy to report that Gunvolt is coming back to strike once again,” Inti Creates said.

A 3DS exclusive, Azure Striker Gunvolt launched in in August last year. It and its spin off title Mighty Gunvolt have been downloaded over 90,000 times.

Inti Creates is a group of former Capcom staffers with loads of Mega Man credits. It is also behind Mighty No. 9, in collaboration with Keiji Inafune’s Comcept. Inafune was also involved in the creation of Gunvolt.
