NS Impressions – Mighty Gunvolt (3DS)

I must admit, I had no idea what to expect from this game. Whereas with Azure Striker GUNVOLT, I knew exactly what I was getting into, I had heard practically nothing about Mighty Gunvolt.

At Eurogamer Expo last September, whilst my friends were queuing for (and obviously playing) Splatoon again, I had a little look around the indie section for Wii U and 3DS. On my journeys, I found a single demo level of Azure Striker GUNVOLT, so I gave it a go. The little game I discovered was … Continue reading
