The double pack is only 15 dollars for 3ds including the 1st and 2nd games...lol.
So far the anime appears to be based on the events that had happened before the events of the first game.

The Striker Pack is $30, pretty sure I didn't overpay.


lol...either the yen to us dollar calculation was off, or you pre-ordered it through amazon when the price wasn't official....lol.

I hope the 1st ASG on the digital release is no different to the dowloadable one (like if they add the time trial on the steam one) because i dont have money for a digital, i already have the 1st one downloaded. why cant they release an update already

And an anime? Not sure what I think about this one.

OVA? how many ep and how long each ep relese


Nothing was said regarding the amount of episodes or the duration. Very little was said regarding this at anime expo from what I could read. The post is here:http://www.inside-games.jp/article/2016/07/04/100070.html but it is all in kanji, hiragana, and katagana.

More things(but very minimal) were said in Anime Expo 2016. Sorry for non-kanji/hiragana/katagana reading people.
SQUEEEEEEE. Hyped for no reason.

These links provide a more detailed, interesting, professional-like summary for the series as a whole. It also contains character profiles, which I feel is entertaining, unique, and sad in some aspects.
There is a quite sad bitter sweet twist at the end.
The gameplay is amazing, and it is very enjoyable. The characters are also enjoyable, and their is a small amount of people most wouldn't like.

For those who are not familiar with the franchise and would like to purchase the game, I recommend not buying it from steam or the eShop. Later on this year(2 mouths and a couple of days)there will be a packaged game which contains a remastered version of the first game and it's sequal.
Sorry with providing you with pages and pages of text rather than providing trailers.

Not even a full length show? Uhoh.


At least we get something. This would've not gotten anything if they left it the way it was.
Plus, Kiss X Sis(The first one) was an OVA with 12 eps, 23 mins each. If we're lucky we might get something like that. 12 stages, 12 eps. Kinda logical.

I already know, but Inti Creates is working on it as well, meaning, most changes won't be big.

The game is highly enjoyable. Plus, their is a twist at the end.
Plus go here for a better summary/character: http://gunvolt.com/en/GV1/
The summary here on MAL doesn't explain much.

I am in tears right now....
I've been waiting for this. I'm hyped now....
I've played the first game, and loved it. The double pack is being released 3 days after my birthday.....
I am praying that this meets my expectations....
Oh god...I'm still crying. I'm a slut for Inti Creates.

The visual looks cool, never heard of this before though until now.

This could be good. It's a perfect fit.
