Back in June, during the BitSummit Gaiden online event, Inti Creates announced it would be reviving its flagship 2D side-scrolling series Azure Striker Gunvolt for a third outing.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 is described as a "true blue sequel" to Azure Striker Gunvolt - with action supervisor Keiji Inafune (Level-5 Comcept CCO) and series' director Yoshihisa Tsuda on-board. It also sees the return of Gunvolt, and the addition of one new and "incredibly charming" character known as Kirin.

Now, after a number of months, Inti Creates has announced it will be showcasing the third entry to the public for the first time at this year's Digital Games Expo - taking place at Akihabara UDX on 29th November.

While we wait to see what comes of this, why not take a look at some of the footage of the game from earlier this year in the clip above. There's no release date just yet, but when we hear something we'll be sure to let you know.
