Features


Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack

Players have an opportunity to own and play both Azure Striker Gunvolt and its sequel, Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, on one cartridge. All of the DLC from the original 3DS version comes preloaded with the game

Tons of new features and enhancements. Thanks to the powerful Switch hardware, framerates have been upgraded from 30 fps to 60 fps

Features a new intuitive one-screen layout, enhanced graphics, and gameplay improvements. Graphics and characters look better, while adjustments to the game balance and general gameplay improvements have been made to enhance the experience

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller compatibility and HD Rumble support. When Gunvolt uses his powerful electrical attacks, the Nintendo Switch's HD Rumble kicks in to bring you even closer to the action

Intense high-speed side-scrolling action. Action game moments are interwoven into a deep story that takes the genre to a whole new level

Obliterate foes with the power of lightning. Tag enemies with your weapon, then shock them into oblivion with Gunvolt's lethal "Flashfield" technique. Advanced players can try for bonuses, higher scores by defeating two or more enemies at once

Gain power from the Lumen's anthem. Lumen, aka the Muse, has the power to revive Gunvolt if he falls in a battle. And if you rack up enough Kudos, she'll sing for you during play, giving you an added boost. A brand new theme song from Lumen

Powerful bosses and an intriguing tale await. Will Gunvolt be able to put a stop to the Sumeragi Group's ambitions before it's too late?

In Gunvolt 2, a powerful new enemy emerges. Gunvolt's battle with the Sumeragi Group may be over, but a brand new enemy is looming in the shadows. Play as Gunvolt or his rival, Copen, and experience a whole new playstyle and story

Copen joins the fray. In Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, Copen makes his debut as a playable character. Copen can dash through the air, slam into his enemies to lock onto them, then unleash a devastating homing shot

Shovel Knight amiibo compatibility. Scan your Shovel Knight amiibo* in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, and unlock a boss battle against Shovel Knight

*Shovel Knight amiibo figurine is sold separately

For 1 player

    Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack is a cool set of two games on one cartridge at an affordable price. It's a side strolling 2 D shooter that's just fun. Fun anywhere. Thank you Nintendo Switch. I'm sure you can go online and see game-play footage and get the full gist of the game, but coming from a guy that just simply wants to play a nice game on the go or in my bed, this one will do the trick. as difficult as you need it to be or as simple as a pick up a play can get. i enjoyed the side strolling aspect and the crazy, off the wall story as only Japan can provide. Now that leads to the only problem I have with the game. It's not localized for English. However, this is a good thing, as the voice acting is so much more intense in the original language. You can read the subtitles at your leisure, so you can still enjoy the crazy story. I enjoyed it and my friends enjoyed as well. If you're interested at all, give it a shot. It won't set you back much cash and you'll get two games. Now go check out those other reviews on your way to the register.

    Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack contains the high points of Inti Creates' oeuvre. The sequel included is easily the headliner of the two, bursting with content and generally being the much better designed title. The action is really addictive with playability being very tight and responsive. It's hard to let go of the game because it feels so good to play it. To find any big flaws in these would entail mostly petty nitpicks as they stand to be exemplary entries in the run and gun genre. Them being on Nintendo Switch only means that the action does not have to stay at home.

    60 FPS makes such a difference!

    I bought the Azure Striker Gunvolt games on 3DS originally, struggled through the first one, and gave up on the second. I always felt like I couldn't quite control it, like I was a split-second behind at all times. Then I decided to give the Switch version a try when it went on sale, as I read that it ran at a higher framerate. Boy, did it make a difference! The Switch version runs at 60 FPS, instead of 30 on 3DS, and it makes it so much better to control! It actually feels like a real Mega Man X style action platformer now. Get this version, not the 3DS version!

    I read a lot of reviews comparing this game to Mega Man (and that some MM creators had worked on it) and it's true. Azure Striker Gunvolt definitely carries the spirit of Mega Man. You race through stages defeating enemies until you encounter the stage boss. It has a decent story and I think the graphics on the Switch have a great 16-bit style feel but still look great on a modern console. Try it out!

    For diehards and the uninitiated, it’s hard not to recommend Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack. The compilation features two compelling games, wonderful graphics and all of the previously released DLC all on one cartridge. The games have a couple of warts here and there, and the difficulty level can be demanding at times, but the gameplay will keep you coming back again and again. Fans of old-school, 2D platforming would do well to check this one out.

    This is a port of a 3DS game. Its not really “better” nad I must admit I miss having that second screen. But if you never experienced the 3DS version then you won’t miss andything and probably love this. I do enjoy it on the switches bigger screen and it does feel a bit snappier, but maybe try to catch this when it’s on sale. Stil a wonderful side scrolling shooter.

    Good, but not great

    This is a great game, brought down to merely "Good" due to the lazy porting job to the Switch. They took the original 3DS download titles, updated the cutscenes, but merely stretched the in game graphics to fit the Switch/TV screen making everything look extremely pixelated with a very zoomed in camera perspective, preventing you from seeing much of the oncoming terrain.

    Great game, but a bit overpriced

    First of all, I really like this game. The 2 included games both play and look amazing. The soundtrack and visuals are great, and the gameplay is excellent. I just feel that $40 is a bit high for the actual value here, considering that it's more than the original games cost. If you can get this game on sale for $30 or less, I'd say go for it.
