Summary

In the near future, in a nation unknown... Humanity has entered a new age where the majority are now “Adepts” — people who possess supernatural powers known as “Septimas”.

Luminous Avenger iX is the first spin-off title in the Azure Striker Gunvolt franchise, and its quality justifies more sequels down the line. Combat forces you move fast and accurately, but it’s forgiving enough at first so you can learn the ropes. The system allows you to feel as cool as you look. Fans of Mega Man X should look into giving this title a try, as it ticks all the boxes a good action platformer should. It won’t shake the foundations of gaming, as it’s held back by weak narrative and characters, but the core gameplay hits the target with flying colors.

This game manages to expand on the already solid formula established by Copen’s playable appearance in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 to create one of the most exhilarating platformers on this side of Sonic Mania. Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX also proves that the Gunvolt series can sustain itself via spin-offs, not only creating further parallels between it and the Mega Man franchise but cementing the fact that this is an Inti Creates series that will, hopefully, stick around for a long time to come.

Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX was absolutely grand. While the game is somewhat on the shorter side, various gameplay improvements made this one the best in the series. It is clear that the developers focused on swiftness and getting to the cool stuff as soon as possible. The game flows well as a result, encouraging you to go back and improve your performance in certain stages. The level design and gameplay mechanics make for a very sharp 8.5 hours.
