Nicalis has revealed another indie game character that is joining their upcoming Blade Strangers. Gunvolt, the titular character from Inti Creates’ Azure Striker Gunvolt series, joins the fray in this crossover fighter.
Azure Striker Gunvolt and it’s sequel are the first IP self published by Inti Creates — a company more known for making the Mega Man Zero and Mega Man ZX games, as well as the ill-fated Mighty No. 9. The games themselves borrow a bit from the Mega Man Zero and ZX games, something which can be seen in how Gunvolt moves and plays. You can see a bit of this influence in the trailer that Nicalis shared over Twitter.
GUNVOLT Joins the Fight!
From @IntiCreatesEN's Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, this versatile hero is light, quick and electrifying!
