Inti Creates, the studio behind the Mega Man Zero and ZX series, announced Azure Striker Gunvolt, a 2D action sidescroller for the 3DS that is clearly inspired by the studio’s previous works.
Players control Gunvolt, a 14-year-old boy with the ability to manipulate lightning. He’s able to use his powers to attack enemies and protect himself from projectiles. He also has a special gun that fires lightning rods, which he can be used to chain lightning bolts from enemy to enemy.
Comcept CEO and Mega Man co-designer Keiji Inafune is involved with the project as an executive producer.
Azure Striker Gunvolt is scheduled to hit the 3DS eShop this summer.
