Inti Creates announced two new characters for their fast-paced platformer Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, coming to Nintendo 3DS in North America on September 30.
The new characters are named Gibril and Asroc. These will be the final members of “The Seven” and will be voiced by Maya Enoyoshi and Kazuki Ohta respectively.
Additionally, the developer let fans know that the release date for the physical copy of Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 may extend into October by a few days. There is no word on a European release date at this time.
The developer details Gibril:
Gibril is an adept whose “Metallon” septima gives her the ability to control metal. She has a cruel, yet sadistic personality, but more than either of those her true nature is quite masochistic. She harbors great insecurities about her height, and she tends to express those insecurities by acting out in fits of pure rage. So, within the ranks of Eden, it is quite taboo to say words like “small” or “tiny” when she is around.
During battle, she can create metal-based weapons while in her “Alchemist Mode”, utilize her high-speed “Beast Mode” form, and her most powerful form, “Crisis Beast Mode”.
Also, they give details for Asroc:
His “Puppetmaster” septima grants him the ability to extend special energy wires from his fingertips that allow him to power-up and control machines.
He once had a dream of owning an pastry shop par excellence, but became discouraged about his dream after experiencing constant discrimination at the hands of non-adepts.
Before he knew it, he became obsessed with the idea of taking revenge on them, and has kept that fire going is his heart ever since.
Asroc controls a robot named “Galette Krone”, which was developed by Eden to be used with his Puppetmaster septima. This is the only way to control it, since it’s not a normal functioning robot.
