While a European release date has not been announced, Azure Striker Gunvolt is set to launch in Japan on August 20th. While there's still much we do not know about the game, it looks to feature all the varied abilities and tough platforming that became the hallmarks of the Blue Bomber's more recent handheld adventures, along with new twists like Gunvolt's lightning powers and his rival using copied abilities.
