While hardcore side scrolling fans await any update they can get for Mighty No. 9, some might have failed to realize that a very good Mega Man inspired title already came out last year. Azure Striker Gunvolt was a bit under the radar, but it did a nice job evoking Mega Man style gameplay while doing enough differently to very much feel like its own thing. We had been waiting for any news of a sequel, but it seemed like a long shot.
Luckily, just yesterday Inti Creates announced via their Facebook and Twitter profiles that Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 would be heading to the 3DS. This is unfortunately all the news they gave us at the time, but honestly “it exists” is more than enough to already get us excited for what is in store.
