Inti Creates revealed at the BitSummit 7 Spirits event in Kyoto on Saturday that it will release Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX (Shiroki Kōtetsu no X: The Out of Gunvolt), the latest game in its Azure Striker Gunvolt series of games, on September 26. While Inti Creates originally announced the game for the Nintendo Switch only, the game will now release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC (via Steam) on the same day for US$14.99.
The game will tell a side story starring the game series' "anti-hero" Copen. Inti Creates describes the game:
Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX takes place in the universe of the “Azure Striker Gunvolt” (2014) and “Azure Striker Gunvolt 2” (2016) titles.
Since its inception, the Gunvolt series has become known among fans for its high-speed, stylish 2D action. This game will see series rival/anti-hero Copen take the lead and push the series' speed and intensity to the next level, all the while keeping the game accessible to new fans.
Inti Creates developed the first Azure Striker Gunvolt game with concepts by Keiji Inafune of Mega Man/Rockman fame, and released the game in Japan and North America on the Nintendo 3DS in August 2014.
The company released Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 on 3DS in August 2016 in Japan and in October 2016 in North America. The company also released the Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack that features both games at the same time as the standalone Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 release. Inti Creates then released Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack for the Nintendo Switch in August 2017.
