Inti Creates is bringing Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack, its collection including both Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, to Switch via the Nintendo eShop worldwide on August 31, the developer announced at A 5th of BitSummit.

In Japan, the collection will receive a standard physical release for 5,400 yen, a limited edition including a DVD of the original video animation and drama CD for 8,640 yen, and a download version for 4,900 yen.

The Switch version of the collection includes HD rumble support, a new theme song, and all of the downloadable content from the previously released 3DS version.

Here’s the full overview, via Inti Creates:


The Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack contains both Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, two of our flagship games that originally made their home on the Nintendo 3DS. With the release of the Switch version of the Striker Pack, there are a host of new features, improvements, and bonus content that make it the truly complete version of the Azure Striker Gunvolt experience. Let’s take a look at what’s in store!

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack

Gameplay Upgraded from 30 FPS to 60 FPS

Since the 3DS game was created with emphasis on the visual aspects of the game, it was only able to run at 30 FPS on that system, but thanks to more powerful new hardware, 60 FPS Gunvolt is here for the first time. The biggest difference between the former 30 FPS and the new 60 FPS can be felt while playing as Copen, the super-quick, high-flying playable character from Gunvolt 2.

Entire DLC catalog from the 3DS version comes pre-loaded

All of the 3DS version DLC, which includes extra stages and bosses, bonus modes, and new songs, comes pre-loaded with the game.
