A keen fan has asked the question we’ve all been wondering (in Australia) – will Azure Striker Gunvolt be heading our way in the near future? Thankfully, the resoundingly positive answer is: yes.


The shooter that was announced for Japan last March, and hit the US 3DS eShop late last August, has been given the go-ahead for an Australian release – as per the above image of an email send by the development team behind the game. Whilst there’s no mention of an exact release date for Australia (or Europe for that matter), it is great news for Aussie fans interested in the title.

Developed by Mega Man creator, Keiji Inafune, the game features a new blue hero fighting his way through a fast-paced 2D side-scroller in the psychic future of Japan.

If you haven’t already, check out the trailer below in anticipation of the game. And let us know in the comments section if you’re enjoying the game in the US – or looking forward to it in PAL regions.
