"Oversurge, Azure Striker!" Gunvolt 2 Now Available Digitally!

Welp, the long wait is over, folks, and the digital version of Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 has finally arrived on our shores! You can now pick it up on the Nintendo 3DS eShop for the cool price of $13.49. The file size is 3,728 blocks. It will be followed closely by the physical Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack on October 4, which will be priced at $29.99.

I'd imagine that there are a number of people who are waiting for their copies of the Striker Pack to experience Gunvolt 2, but for those of you picking up the digital version today, I hope you have a blast playing it! I know that I certainly will, at any rate!

If you'd like to share your thoughts on the game, feel free to sound off in the comments below! Now, if you'll all excuse me, I have an urgent appointement with my 3DS that will probably last a few hours.

Inti Creates has just released a new trailer for the Azure Striker Gunvolt OVA that was announced back in July.

You can give the vid a watch above! I must say, after this taste, I can't wait to hear the voice cast in action when this OVA rolls around!

More GV2 Song Previews from Inti's Latest Livestream

Inti Creates hosted yet another live stream today where they showed off two more GV2 song previews. These songs are "Shinjitsu ≒ Genjitsu -Reality-" (or "Truth -Reality-") by Lumen and "Multi-Universe" by RoRo. An interesting thing to note about the former song is that, according to Perfectly Nintendo, it will be the main theme for the Gunvolt OVA that is scheduled to release in Winter. Neat, huh?

Anyway, you can check out both songs below! Thanks to Perfectly Nintendo for uploading these to Youtube for our listening pleasure!

Gunvolt Limited Edition Drama CD Translated

Zoram recently finished translating the drama CD included with the Japanese limited edition Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack. This CD contains ten tracks, and covers events from before GV joined Feather. They're very fun tracks because they show some unexpected character interactions. I think this is the only place where you could expect to see Jota having it out with Gibril, Nova conversing with Tenjian, and Teseo and Merak trying to one-up each other to determine the better hacker! They're also very interesting because they show that Eden was a very active organization even before the events of GV2.

Oh, and last but not least... [Spoilers from track 10 ahead]

New Gunvolt Shirt Now Available from Fangamer

Some of you may recall that last month, Fangamer teased a new Gunvolt shirt that they were working to release. Well, just in time for PAX West, that shirt has now hit their official website! You can pick it up here for $24 dollars. The shirt also comes with a free 1.25" metallic bonus button, which you can see below:
Overall, pretty awesome to see another nice addition to the ever-growing Gunvolt t-shirt family! By the way, if you happen to be attending PAX West this year, Yacht Club Games reported that this shirt will also be available to buy from Inti's booth. For reference, that's Booth 6908!
