About Azure Striker Gunvolt 3
The Gunvolt series began in 2014 with the digital exclusive 3DS game Azure Striker Gunvolt. In 2016, Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 continued the story of the hero Gunvolt with his rival Copen. And now, in 2022, Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 finally picks up where 2 left off as an official sequel.
New protagonist Kirin fights alongside Gunvolt, allowing players to switch characters in real-time and add a new element to the series’ high-speed 2D action gameplay. Familiar faces return as “Image Pulses”, a new system that allows players to use past Gunvolt characters in battle with over 150 varieties!
With the collaboration of series executive producer/action supervisor Keiji Inafune (LEVEL5 concept CCO), Inti Creates has designed the action of Gunvolt 3 to exceed the expectations of modern gamers on the Nintendo Switch platform. Players will be amazed by the fast, precise action displayed in Azure Striker Gunvolt 3!
Full release for Steam
Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 launches on the Steam Store with full parity with the currently released versions of the game with the latest patch version. This includes the first two updates from the Gunvolt 3 update campaign, which introduced Trial Mode, D-Nizer Mode and a new boss fight to the game.

Steam Next Fest
From October 3rd to October 10th, Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 will participate in the Steam Next Fest event for upcoming games. Visit the Steam Store page to download the exclusive event demo!
In the Next Fest demo, you can play the mission “Holy Night XIII” from the start of the game. When you purchase the full game, your collected character levels and image pulses will be transferred!
- Electrifying 2D shooting and slashing action
The new star Kirin is skilled with a blade, focusing on quick sword fights and casting enchanted talismans to weaken enemies. He can close any gap and destroy enemies in an instant with his powerful ‘Arc Chain’ ability, the ultimate combination of mobility with a satisfying finishing blow.
- A collectible that changes the way you play: Image Pulses
Collect enough “Image Chips” to create “Image Pulses” and form Gunvolt’s memories. Image Pulses allow you to summon companions and rivals from Gunvolt’s past to attack, grant abilities, and more. There are over 150 different boosts to collect, giving players exciting rewards for completing and replaying Gunvolt 3 challenges.
- A near-future dystopian story that unfolds as you play
As the only adept in the world who can seal the powers of others, Kirin sends a mission from his organization, Shadow Yakumo, to deal with the only Gwanult. Once an adept known as the Blue Striker, Gauntolt was transformed into the “First Dragon” and sealed behind the 1000 Holy Swords.
As the story progresses, more and more fascinating characters appear on stage, delivering fully voiced dialogue without interrupting the fast-paced action thanks to the Story Mode+ system.
The characters chat and joke throughout the game, allowing their personalities to shine and the story to develop without detracting from the pure action gameplay.
And for the first time in the Gunvolt series, English-speaking fans can enjoy Story Mode+ real-time conversations without taking their eyes off the action!
