The Azure Striker Gunvolt series was one of the first Mega Man-likes to really gain traction. Initially released on the 3DS, the series has really found its home on the Switch. The entire series is playable on that platform, including the highly-regarded Mighty Gunvolt Burst, which recently got a Steam release. Luminous Avenger iX follows up on Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 by following the tale of Copen and broadening the gameplay beyond “just” what the mainline GV games had. You can now earn in-game currency to upgrade your skills and do things like damaging air dashes or reducing damage intake.
Luminous Avenger iX is set for release on September 26 and will be released on the Switch, PS4, Steam, and for the first time in franchise history, the Xbox One as well. With it coming to every modern-day gaming device on the market, it has the potential to boost the profile of the series and further help Inti Creates’ reputation as one of the most consistent indie devs out there – especially for action-platforming fans.
