Azure Striker Gunvolt Strikes North America this Summer

The forthcoming 2D action game from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, Azure Striker Gunvolt, was announced just last week. While we were initially unsure if the 3DS title would make its way to North America, it would seem that both Japan and the West will be getting the game this summer. Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu confirmed this today, thus quelling our fears of another wonderful game never seeing the light of day here in North America. According to Aizu, the game is also being considered for Europe, but stated that if it does release in PAL territories, it won’t be until sometime after summer, as localizing a game in multiple languages takes quite a bit of time.

For the uninitiated, be sure to scope the trailer below for a look at all that side-scrolling, 90s-throwback-action-game goodness. Thanks, Siliconera!
