on March 7, 2014 7:27 AM

Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune is certainly busy these days with heading the development of Kickstarter-backed Mighty No. 9, but on the side it seems he has another new project in store for 3DS owners.

Announced by Inafune, his new title in production is called Azure Strike Gunvolt, and is being developed in conjunction with developer Inti Creates, as an intense action-platformer that certainly seems to be heavy on the “action” part.

Azure Striker Gunvolt will be released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop this summer in Japan, while details for a Western release are unknown at this time – in the meantime, you can check out the first trailer for the game below, along with an introduction by Keiji Inafune himself:
