Circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic have affected another game. This time, it involves the Inti Creates Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack PS4 physical copies. Nighthawk Interactive, the company responsible for the retail release, said they won’t be shipping out as planned on April 23, 2020 and didn’t have an updated release window for them. However, digital copies will still appear on April 23, 2020.

Nighthawk Interactive is located in New Jersey. As people may be aware, a number of U.S. states are under a shelter-in-place advisory as a result of the pandemic. That state’s order is in effect until March 21, 2020, though that could change. As a result, Nighthawk Interactive noted that the “ongoing business restrictions and store closures” would delay the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack PS4 physical release.

Inti Creates then also issued a statement on the situation. It noted that both companies are committed to the retail release.

The Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack PS4 physical and digital copies will contain copies of Azure Striker Gunvolt and its sequel, complete with 60 fps framerates, an improved soundtrack, and other adjustments. The games are immediately available on the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch.
