While we were hoping the third entry in Inti Creates' flagship 2D side-scrolling series Azure Striker Gunvolt would arrive this year, unfortunately, it seems we'll have to wait a little bit longer.

The Japanese company has announced Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch in 2022.

In addition to this, it's called in Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon series director Hiroki Miyazawa, who will now be assisting the entire project as an "action director". According to the action supervisor Keiji Inafune (Level-5 Comcept CCO) development is "going well" and the team has been hard at work to make the best game possible.

Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 has been previously been described as a "true blue sequel" to the original games and sees the return of Gunvolt, and the addition of one new and "incredibly charming" character known as Kirin.
