Last month, Inti Creates announced that Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 would soon be getting some DLC, featuring returning bosses from Azure Striker Gunvolt. Said DLC is now available in Japan.

Here’s what players with a Japanese copy of the game (either stand-alone or the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack version) can purchase and download:

  • New song for Lumen and Lola: ♪ Stratosphere (150 Yen);
  • Development Recipe 4 (♪ Mist Clock, ♪ Incandescent Journey Set) (150 Yen). When equipped, you receive more credits and XP (150%);
  • Additional missions (300 Yen):
  1. Merak & Carrera
  2. Jota & Elise
  3. Viper & Stratos

Includes two Advanced missions and Super Advanced mission for the Score Attack mode.

  • Speedrun Mode (300 Yen): a special mode for players who want to focus on speedrunning. In this mode, you cannot save within a level (obviously), and your attack power increases depending on the amount of kudos you have.

Here’s a trailer and some screenshots showcasing this DLC:

Wondering if this DLC will be released in Europe and North America? The answer is: Yes! Unfortunately, we don’t know when exactly, just that it will be released in those two regions eventually…

But before you can enjoy this DLC, you need to download the latest update for the game (Ver. 1.2), now available from the Nintendo eShop in Japan.

Also, Inti Creates released a demo version for the game today: you can download it from the Nintendo eShop. Unfortunately, we don’t know if and/or when it will be released in Europe and North America.

Finally, here’s a New Year wallpaper for Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 (you can choose the size on the official website!):

Don’t forget that Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 will be on sale from January 1st on the Nintendo eShop in Japan!
