Azure Striker Gunvolt

Inti Creates is bringing Azure Striker Gunvolt, its Megea Man Zero-inspired 2D side-scroller for 3DS, to PC via Steam on August 28 for $14.99, the developer announced.

From August 28 to September 28, everyone who purchases Azure Striker Gunvolt on Steam will receive a copy of Mighty Gunvolt as a free download.

The PC version will come with new features, including a speedrun mode, Japanese voice mode, and eight different languages. You can also play the game on two screens like the 3DS version.

Get the trailer and full outline below.


From Japanese game developer Inti Creates comes the 2D side-scrolling action game, Azure Striker Gunvolt!

With the “septimal” power to create and manipulate lightning, Gunvolt faces off against the massive conglomerate known as the Sumeragi Group. Intense battles unfold against Sumeragi’s ultra-powerful adepts (those who possess septimal powers) as Gunvolt fights to keep his nation free.


  • Lightning-Based Action – Use your trusty sidearm to tag enemies, then let loose a burst of electricity for massive damage. You can even tag multiple enemies and zap them all simultaneously. Your lightning abilities are not just for defeating enemies, though. Use them to perform various maneuvers such as hovering across hazardous terrain.
  • Do Battle with a Variety of Bosses – Sumeragi’s most powerful members, with a wide range of personalities, await you at the end of your missions. Battles get heated as bosses unleash their most powerful skills and techniques.
  • Get Hype for Lumen’s Songs – Even Gunvolt falls in battle sometimes. Enter the heroine Lumen, whose songs give Gunvolt the strength to get up and fight once more. If you manage to avoid damage and build up a lot of score, the BGM will change midway through the stage to one of Lumen’s songs. Gotta keep that no damage hype train rolling right along!
