Developer Inti Creates announced Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX, the newest title in the popular Azure Striker Gunvolt series, for Nintendo Switch today during BitSummit 2018 in Japan.

In Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX, players actually don’t control the series’ titular protagonist up until this point; instead, they will play as Copen, the anti-hero of the series. The title’s announcement trailer gives us a glimpse at some gameplay, and Copen seems to play similarly to how he did in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, albeit a little more fleshed out.

While details are currently scarce on Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX, Inti Creates does plan on revealing more about the title this Summer. Fans of Inti Creates will also be happy to learn that during BitSummit 2018, the developer also announced Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, which will be releasing on multiple platforms later this month.

You can check out some screenshots, key art, and the announcement trailer for the game below. While Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX is currently without a price or release date, we do know it will be available on Nintendo Switch.
