Check Out 13 Glorious Minutes of English Gunvolt 2 Footage

A few hours ago, Nintendo World Report uploaded a video showing over thirteen minutes of English Gunvolt 2 footage. It would appear that this was recorded at Anime Expo 2016 in Los Angeles, where Inti Creates is currently visiting with a demo of the game on-hand. The demo features gameplay from Teseo's stage. Suffice to say that, between the boss's wacky dialogue and the stage's bizzare gimicks, it's pretty crazy to watch! I think Teseo's personality has been pretty accurately replicated to accomodate English Internet slang, though. Gotta say, he's really cracking me up! Joule's reactions to his nonsense are also really hilarious to read.

There are two things that I found particularly interesting in this video: First is the fact that Teseo suddenly brings up Asimov to GV at 9:33, asking if he really killed him or if that was just a rumor. You really can't help but wonder why Teseo takes an interest in GV's old boss all of a sudden like that. The second thing is that Matt Papa seems to confirm at 3:23 that, in the full version of Gunvolt 2, GV will not be able to take a maximum of three hits before losing his kudos--only one, like the first game.

Anyway, that's it for now! It seems that a demo of one of Copen's stages is also available at the Inti Creates AX booth, although I can't locate footage from it at the moment. I'll keep an eye out, however, and keep you folks in the loop!

Footage From GV's Intro Stage in Gunvolt 2 Translated

A couple days ago, I reported on a livestream that Inti Creates recently hosted on NicoNico Live. Among a number of things, this stream showed off some new footage from GV's intro stage in Gunvolt 2. The footage has since been uploaded to Youtube, and Zoram was kind enough to translate all the Japanese dialogue in it for the convenience of English speakers. You can check out the translated video above! Don't forget to enable the English subtitles!

Thanks a ton to Zoram for the translation! Also, gotta love that Gino reference at 4:33!

Boy oh boy, do I have something special to share today!
