The long road to the release of Azure Striker Gunvolt just got a whole lot shorter, as developer Inti Creates and producer Keiji Inafune today confirm that the spiritual successor to Mega Man will be hitting Nintendo's 3DS eShop this August 29th. That's a little over a week after the Japanese launch on Aug. 20th.
Gunvolt's eShop pricing has also been settled at $14.99 USD, which seems competitive enough for a digital download on 3DS. Inti Creates meanwhile promises that French, German, Italian and Spanish versions of Gunvolt are in the works, but no timeframe for these European releases has been decided at time of writing. It's enough to know it will be happening, given 3DS software remains in hostile region-locked territory.
