Discovered through an Amazon listing, Inti Creates’ Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack will receive a physical release in North America.

The Switch version of Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack is set to launch worldwide on August 31. However, the Amazon listing gives the release date of October 31, with nothing insinuating that this is placeholder.

Additionally, Nighthawk Interactive will take up the publishing of this version of the game. Originally, Yacht Club games published the physical release of the 3DS version in multiple regions.

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack includes both titles in the Azure Striker Gunvolt series, Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. Players will control the hero of the game, Gunvolt, in a 2D action game from the developers of Mega Man Zero.

The series features, a colorful cast of characters who take on hordes of enemies as Gunvolt completes missions and fights towards his goal. Up until now, the series has been on 3DS and PC, so it’d be interesting to see where the series goes from here with its console debut.

Recently, we ran an editorial about the history of Inti Creates and their increased response in the west. The developer has made a name for themselves with the release of Azure Striker Gunvolt, Blaster Master Zero, and the Gal*Gun series.
