Fangamer Releases A Bunch of Gunvolt Merch

Fangamer has released a new batch of Gunvolt merch via their online store. The items include the official Azure Striker Gunvolt Soundtrack, Azure Phosphorescence (the Lumen album), a Lumen t-shirt, and two posters. Most (if not all) of this stuff was sold by Inti Creates during Magfest, but now that they're up on Fangamer's store, they're available to a wider audience!

You can check out preview pics of the items below. If you're interested in picking up any of this merch, head on over to Fangamer!

Inti Releases New Commercial for the Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack

Inti Creates hosted another livestream on NicoNico Live earlier today. The stream seemed mostly focused on Mighty No. 9, but Takuya Aizu and Yoshihisa Tsuda were kind enough to show a new commercial for the Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack. While most of the gameplay footage in the trailer is stuff we've seen before, towards the very end we get a quick look at GV dodging an attack from one of the new GV2 bosses--and what an attack! You can check it out for yourselves below!

The Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack will be releasing in Japan on August 25.

New GV2 Footage and Song Previews Released in Latest Inti Broadcast *UPDATED*

Inti Creates hosted a special live broadcast via NicoNico Live earlier today wherein they showed off gameplay footage from Gunvolt 2, as well as some song previews from the game. The footage displayed more of GV's gameplay, although it didn't really highlight any new aspects of his play-style. We also got a chance to listen to the new version of "Reincarnation" (now called "Reincarnation - Alternativa") for the first time, in addition to one of Lola's new songs, "Igniter". You can check out both the gameplay feed and the new song previews below:

UPDATE: Zoram was kind enough to translate the character dialogue in the gameplay feed and provide the video with English subtitles. You can check out the updated video below:

Gameplay Video:

Gunvolt fan Alvin pointed out to me that, in this video, GV is able to sustain three hits before his kudos goes down. This makes the game's system much more lenient than in GV1. Granted, it's unknown whether this is due to an easier difficulty or not.

Song Preview Video:

Pretty nice, huh? It's interesting to note that Lola's song sounds more "mechanical" than Lumen's, to the point where it almost gives off a vocaloid vibe. Of course, this can probably be attributed to the fact that Lola's essentially a robot. Anyway, hope you enjoyed these videos! I know that I sure did!

Inti Creates Releases Info on Three New GV2 Characters

Inti Creates has released information on three new characters from the Gunvolt 2 official game art. These characters include Nowa (now known as "Nori"), Copen's sister, and the blue-haired operator boy. I've reproduced their character bios and such below for the sake of convenience. Hit the jump for the full lowdown!

On May 20, Inti Creates will be arranging another Gunvolt live broadcast via NicoNico Live called Azure Striker Gunvolt Info Station. The broadcast will be hosted by IKKAN and Megu Sakuragawa. Kousuke Masuo (Acura's voice) and Yurika Endou (RoRo's voice) will also be present as guest speakers. The livestream will be taking place at 9pm Japan Time, and as the title implies, it is scheduled to reveal new information about the Azure Striker Gunvolt series. 
Be sure to tune in if you're available at that time! The stream will be available here.

Check Out Video Footage From The Gunvolt 2 Demo! *UPDATED*

Ready for something really exciting, folks? Earlier last week, I talked about a new Gunvolt 2 demo that Inti showcased at one of their public events in Japan. This demo showed off some really cool stuff about the game that we'd not known about before. As you may recall, though, at the time, I could only supply a list of the new details that were revealed. I couldn't provide any actual video footage because I had no means of retrieving any.

That's now changed, however! In a surprising turn of events, the GV2 demo footage that Inti showcased at their event has been converted into video! What's more, good ol' Zoram sent me a translation document for all character dialogue in the demo! Wasn't that nice of him?

You can catch the video footage on NicoNico right here. Word of note, though: you need a NicoNico account to watch videos on the site. Not that that's a huge deal--you can sign in easily via any Twitter, Facebook, Google, Nintendo Network or even Line account.

UPDATE: Gameplay footage now on Youtube:

And, of course, you can find the character dialogue translations below. Yeah, I know, not as convenient as subtitles on the actual video, but the dialogue is pretty easy to follow nonetheless. Hope you folks enjoy it! It's super cool stuff!
