Init Creates has announced that the third game in the action-packed Azure Striker Gunvolt is coming to the Nintendo Switch series on July 28. The game will be released on the eShop for $29.99. Those who prefer to own a physical version will be pleased to know that the physical version of Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 will be provided by the team at Limited Run Games at a later date. Here’s what you need to know about Azure Striker Gunvolt 3, plus a trailer showing off the fast-paced action.

The Gunvolt series started in 2014 with the digitally exclusive 3DS game Azure Striker Gunvolt. In 2016, Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 continued the story of the hero Gunvolt and his rival Copen. And now, in 2022, Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 is finally taking over as the official sequel to 2. New protagonist Kirin fights alongside Gunvolt, allowing players to switch characters on the fly, adding a new element to the series’ high-speed 2D action games. Familiar faces will return in the form of “Image Pulses,” a new system that allows players to use characters from Gunvolt’s past in battle, with over 150 to choose from! Thanks to the collaboration of series executive producer/action supervisor Keiji Inafune (LEVEL5 comcept CCO), Inti Creates has evolved the action of Gunvolt 3 to exceed the expectations of modern players on the Nintendo Switch platform. Players will be blown away by the fast and precise action in Azure Striker Gunvolt 3!
