Inti Creates, developer of Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 – the long-awaited third main game in the series – has acknowledged that there is a data save bug in the Switch version of the game.

Sharing the information on Twitter, the bug may occur when you delete a save file and then change the settings or language options on the title screen. This will then lead to the corruption of the last backup file read. The problem only seems to have happened since updating the game to ver. 1.0.2.

Fortunately, Inti Creates has confirmed that they are working on a fix to fix the issue. He also shared tips on how to avoid the problem while waiting.

We shared the statement below along with the original tweet:

Issue Details
The following issue exists in Azure Striker Gunvolt on Nintendo Switch as of ver. 1.0.2.
Deleting a save file from the file selection screen and then changing settings or language options from the title screen will cause the last save location read to not read correctly.
Starting the game from this location and then encountering an autosave or manual save will cause this save location to be corrupted.

We are already working on preparing a patch to resolve the issue. We will announce a release date for the update as soon as possible. Until the fix is ​​available, please use the above methods to avoid the save bug.
