This new entry in the Azure Striker Gunvolt series is a true blue sequel to the previous 2 games and sees the return of action supervisor Keiji Inafune who worked together with director Yoshihisa Tsuda on the first two games. The game features a new hero called Kirin. She's a shrine maiden with a Septimal power that allows her to seal the abilities of others.

In addition to her Septimal powers, she has a unique combat style that combines enchanted talismans and a sword crafted from a pewter staff. You can watch a trailer that shows her and the Azure Striker himself in action below:

As the story progresses, more and more fascinating characters will take the stage, delivering fully voiced dialogue without stopping the high-paced action thanks to the Story Mode+ system. With this system, Characters will be allowed to talk and banter during gameplay, allowing their personalities to shine and the story to develop without diluting the pure action gameplay. Take notes, Mighty No. 9.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 is going to cost Nintendo Switch users a total of $29.99 on the Nintendo Switch eShop. While this game might be a downloadable title only, there will be a physical version made by Limited Run Games.
