Yes, you read that right. Today is the debut of Azure Striker Gunvolt, a new game by Inti Creates, aka, the guys who made the Mega Man Zero and Mega Man ZX game series.
For those of you not in the know, let me tell you about Azure Striker Gunvolt.
Azure Striker Gunvolt is a 2D-sildescrolling action platformer available for download on the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS eShop. It's a spiritual successor to Mega Man Zero and Mega Man ZX. The game is set in a near future where people with psychic powers have begun to appear in the world. The regular human population immediately begins to fear these psychics, and a conglomerate known as The Sumeragi Group decides to do something about this. They begin taking in psychics to what they call shelters where they claim the psychics will be safe. However, in truth, The Sumeragi Group are rounding up the psychics to place them in concentration camps where they are subject to horrible experiments. In response to this, a human rights organization known as QUILL is formed to free the psychics from The Sumeragi Groups grip.
You play as a 17-year-old boy given the codename "Gunvolt", who is a member of QUILL. Gunvolt is a psychic whos power allows him to control electricity. One day, Gunvolt is assigned to assassinate the Sumeragi-backed pop star Lumen. When he finds her, however, he comes across a discovery that puts him at odds with, not only The Sumeragi Group, but with QUILL as well.
Seeing as the game comes out today here in North America, I can't give an opinion on it (I don't even own it yet. I intend to get it tomorrow.). However, reviews of the game already exist on IGN and Gamespot. Here is a link for all interested parties.
Also, here is a link to the game's website if you wish to learn more about it.
I had my eye on this game since finding out about it some weeks ago. As I said, I intend to buy it. The Nintendo eShop will sell it on the 3DS and 2DS for $14.99.
So, there you have it. I hope I have captured your interest, and have convinced you to give this game a shot.
