A little over two weeks ago, Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 launched in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS. For the game’s release, Keiji Inafune, the game’s executive producer and action supervisor, shared a message for fans who have supported the game so far. [Thanks, Nintendo Everything.]
Here’s Inafune’s full message:
“Gunvolt, which started as the first in-house title of Inti Creates, has finally realized the release of a sequel. In addition, we have managed to offer a packaged version which has both the previous title and the sequel in the form of “Striker Pack”. I thank all of the fans who have supported us thus far from the bottom of my heart. I was surprised when I first heard about creation of the original, but I expressed respect for these guys who had chosen to follow their dreams and challenge themselves and I had the privilege of cooperating with them from the position of a supervisor.
The Gunvolt series combines traditional side-scrolling action which is Inti’s specialty and a world and characters that are anime-like, so it is a title that even younger generations can get familiar with immediately. Actually it has also been decided to produce an anime version that overcomes the limits of the game, and I’m personally really looking forward to the development from now on. The price is also reasonable, so even people who haven’t played the series, please take this opportunity to try out the game.”
Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is available in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS. It will release worldwide on September 29th.
