Saw some new edits in Luminous Avenger IX. Any new info?

Today new info was revealed about the two bosses seen in demos and trailers, Rebellio and Crimm.

http://gunvolt.com/en/X/characters/chara03.html

In the story section it's now said that Falcons use something called a Falcon Quill to "enter a contract" and power up and transform.

I'm not sure if it was already there, but the Sumeragi supervisory AI mentioned in Blade's profile is brought up again in the septima section. Apparently it is responsible for maintaining peace despite the differences in power among adepts.

Rebellio is totally an Asterios reference!

And Crimm kinda looked like Crush Crawfish but with different powers.

EDIT: looking at the first 2 bosses shown, I think the theme this time is Western Zodiac - Rebellio is Aries and Crimm is Cancer.

Rebllio actually seems pretty sympathetic unlike most of the enemy Adepts in the series.

[up] It helps that his backstory and motives are right there in the character introduction while others are in manuals.

I like that as well. That was what annoyed me about 2. The only sympathetic backstory you found out about ingame was Tenjian's.

Another site update, this time about the other minos characters.

http://gunvolt.com/en/X/characters/chara02.html

There was also a Japanese news article with various screenshots and one art piece, including two of the bosses (Virgo and Libra?) and... Sumeragi tanks modeled after Lola. Some speculate it's psychological warfare due to Lola being an idol figure for humans in this game; others think they're reverse engineered from her and can use artificial septima, judging by them having eight attachments around the head like how Lola has eight pods.

Lastly, a video of the English demos featuring Rebellio and Crimm. I've heard that like in Mega Man Zero and ZX, bosses now have extra dialogue if you die. Haven't seen it yet though.

(Rebellio's encounter is at 3:05 while Crimm's is at 10:27)

Stella and Dystnine.

  • A sapient robot is one thing, but a robot with Septima? I'm as curious as Sumeragi here.
  • Dystnine is definitely "Taurus". With lightsabers and Attack Reflector cape. Darth Vader?
  • Stella is... "Virgo"? And she seems like she's Indian.
  • Count me in for the new "robot butler on female boss" ship.

Stella should be Libra, not Virgo.

The last two Falcons were revealed in a stream today.

Blue boss/Leo is named "Lion King Swift Rotation" Bakuto/Bact and has the Spiral septima. Pink boss/Gemini is named "Winged Warrior Type * Idol" Isora and has the Copy (Companion) septima.

The site updated. Their English names are Isola and Bakto.

I guess, they're playing the Warden being "Gemini" with her having 2 completely different personas...

And Bakto = Kamina confirmed

A few days ago a new trailer came out. Not much new in it, but there was skill cut-in art for Lola's Darkness Trigger mode. It seems to enhance/alter the appearance of Copen's EX weapons and grant infinite weapon energy.

Another thing of note is that Blade's skill, Berserk Trigger, was revealed to have an incantation in binary, which some speculate means the skill is the Sumeragi AI assuming direct control. The binary has been interpreted to mean "KILL KILL KILL", but apparently it can also be interpreted (if incorrectly) as "ZX ZX ZX"...

So right now they are showing that Adepts are pretty destructive, which kinda makes Gunvolt's desire for a peaceful world seem massively naive.

But do they plan to actually show that Copen's actions don't help things? he's pretty much considered an undisputed hero in this game for defending humans right?

What's the message supposed to be here?

Does Gunvolt desire a peaceful world? Seems like he never really took a side one way or another and just tried to live the best he could with Joule.

That said, I only played the first game with the original "jitt" translation, so I might not have a full idea of what he's like.

Well, in the first game he was part of a group that (claimed to) want to free Adepts from oppression (from other adepts rather than humans but still).

That being said, him just wanting to live with Joule in peace does seem more right, considering he ditches Quill after the first game.

I feel like GV only fights for personal reasons. I think Quill were the ones who saved him, and he did do jobs for them after leaving to pay the bills.

I don't think he ever really fought for a moral cause so much as to help those he cared about.

That's fair enough.

So Gunvolt fights for those he cares about, but has no higher purpose, yet is a pretty cool guy overall.

Copen has a higher purpose, and probably wants to save people, but has zero qualms about murdering even a young girl (barring his own sister) if said girl is an adept...

....oh. I want for one of those kids to turn out to be an adept. What you gunna do then Copen? What'chu gun do?!

Yeah. That's a good bet.

Maybe being forced to see someone he cares about turn out to be an Adept again might finally break him from his attitude that just murdering them will solve all the worlds problems.

[up] then again, when the Adepts really are the enemies, good Adepts are simply rare exceptions.

At least there's one among the bosses that normally is pacifistic, but coerced to fight against humans.

Yeah, the sheep dude.

So are characters like Gunvolt, Rebellio (the guy you mentioned), and Joule / Lumen / Mytl the exceptions?

Wow, that's kinda sad. No wonder Gunvolt just focuses on protecting what little he has. It'd probably be a Suicide Mission to try and convince humans to not hate Adepts.

I believe it was stated in some side material that Adepts ended up destroying the rest of the world pretty much. Not sure on the specifics though.

That said, it could have been in a non-hostile way, like countries took advantage of Adepts to wage war against each other, with some just fighting in self-defense, and the firepower wielded by each side was so great, the world got fucked over. As a result everyone began to hate and fear Adepts, and basically it's just a cycle of fear and violence.
