Inti Creates has revealed more info on its upcoming entry in the Gunvolt series at Bitsummit 2019. Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX was revealed at the Kyoto-based indie game festival last year and it is now confirmed to be launching on 26th September.

The first game in the series since Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 in 2016, Copen is the mysterious protagonist this time around and he's searching for a MacGuffin known as the 'Butterfly Effect'. He has support in the form of his robot companion Lola, a 'reliable partner' with the ability to scan enemy weapons and create 'mock' versions of them for Copen to use. Handy!

The trailer above gives a good idea of the action and characters you'll encounter on your journey, and the pixel art in these shots appears to uphold the series' retro aesthetic:

It'll cost $14.99 when it launches on 26th September, which sounds like ages away, but summer has a habit of flying by, so we look forward to trying this one out soon on Switch.
