Azure Gunvolt 1

With retro-styled 2D action title Azure Striker Gunvolt now available on the 3DS eShop in North America, and a European release date bound to pop-up at some point in the near future, Australians have been left wondering where they fit in.

Normally, Aussie releases fall under European PAL territory – and that’s probably the same case here with this exclusive eShop title – but just to reassure those living within Australia, Inti Creates has been nice enough to reply to an email from an eager Aussie about the chances of a local release:

As expected, Azure Striker Gunvolt is indeed on its way to the Australian 3DS eShop at some point in the near future; Inti Creates no doubt has to sort out the finer points of the release with Nintendo Australia first.

If you’re an Aussie, does this confirmation excite – or even ease any concerns you may have had about this title making it across to Australian shores? Can you perhaps think of other situations where certain games released in Europe and the US haven’t always made it down under?

And for those in Europe, are you still pumped for this upcoming title from the Mighty No.9 developer, with the assistance of Keiji Inafune, despite the lack of an official release date? Let us know in the comments.
