Developer Inti Creates announced the 2D high speed, old-school style side-scrolling action game, Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, will launch for Windows PC via Steam on June 22. 

The game is available now for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS.

Here is an overview of the game:

The 2D high speed, old-school style side-scrolling action that you remember from Azure Striker Gunvolt is back! In this game, Gunvolt’s rival Copen from the first installment returns to the fray as a playable character!

Key Features:

  • Prevasion – This ability allows Gunvolt to neutralize enemy attacks at the cost of his EP energy. Copen also has an ability exactly like this.
  • Kudos – Kudos is a point system that increases whenever you deal damage to an enemy. Whenever you take damage, your Kudos are reduced to zero. When activating a save point, using a special skill or clearing a mission, Kudos are converted into bonus points.
  • The Muse’s Song – For as long as you can maintain 1000 or more Kudos, the BGM will change and Lumen AKA The Muse (or in Copen’s story, Lola) will sing for you!
  • Anthem – When Gunvolt or Copen’s HP reaches 0, the Muse’s power can bring them back to life, with additional power-ups. In that state, the BGM will change to the Muse’s song.

I remember this game. I've always thought the protagonist kinda looks like an anime-Cloud Strife with Edward Elric's braid, lol.
