Azure Striker Gunvolt Gets Physical!

It is not an easy task to emulate the formula established by the Mega Man franchise, but as you might have noticed in our September review of Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack as a digital release on the Nintendo Switch, Inti Creates managed to satiate the desires of those looking for some side-scrolling, platforming, and shooting action. For those who are prickly when it comes to digital releases and prefer old-school hard copies, Nighthawk Interactive has proudly released a retail version Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack. 

Building upon what developer Inti Creates started with the Mega Man Zero series, Mega Man ZX, and Mega Man 9 and Mega Man, the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack fuses Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 into an optimized compilation. Fully enhanced for the Nintendo Switch from its 3DS incarnations, this version flaunts features such as 60 frames per second, HD event graphics, and Nintendo Switch Pro Controller compatibility, all DLCs, and new bosses and sages. This is the definitive version of the game.

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack is now available for the Nintendo Switch at North American retailers for $39.99. The game is rated T for Teen.
