Last week, Inti Creates shared some details, screenshots, and gameplay footage for Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. Once again, the focus was on The Seven, a group of powerful adepts from Eden, with two characters revealed.
And today, the developers shared more details about those two characters, in English this time around! They are officially called Gibrill and Asroc:
- Gibril, “The Full Metal Jacket” (voiced by Maya Enoyoshi) – “You’ll pay for that, buddy-boy…and it’s going to hurt!”
Gibril is an adept whose “Metallon” septima gives her the ability to control metal. She has a cruel, yet sadistic personality, but more than either of those her true nature is quite masochistic. She harbors great insecurities about her height, and she tends to express those insecurities by acting out in fits of pure rage. So, within the ranks of Eden, it is quite taboo to say words like “small” or “tiny” when she is around.
During battle, she can create metal-based weapons while in her “Alchemist Mode”, utilize her high-speed “Beast Mode” form, and her most powerful form, “Crisis Beast Mode”.
- Asroc, “The Pygmalion Furnace” (voiced by Kazuki Ohta) – “Now gain wisdom by the fire of the Galette Krone!”
His “Puppetmaster” septima grants him the ability to extend special energy wires from his fingertips that allow him to power-up and control machines.
He once had a dream ofowning an pastry shop par excellence, but became discouraged about his dream after experiencing constant discrimination at the hands of non-adepts.
Before he knew it, he became obsessed with the idea of taking revenge on them, and has kept that fire going is his heart ever since.
Asroc controls a robot named “Galette Krone”, which was developed by Eden to be used with his Puppetmaster septima. This is the only way to control it, since it’s not a normal functioning robot.

Inti Creates also reiterated that the release of the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack in North America could be delayed by a few days, due to the usual retail shenanigans. Unfortunately, they still have nothing to announce for Europe, but they explain that they haven’t forgotten European fans.
They also confirmed (once again) that the Japanese Voice Mode from the Steam version (for Azure Striker Gunvolt) would be included in the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack. As soon as they have something to announce regarding the patch for the digital version, they will make sure to let everyone know!
Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 (3DS eShop) comes out on August 25th in Japan, September 30th in North America, and later this year in Europe. The Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack will be released at retail on the same day in Japan and North America.
