About The Game

Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer is a one-on-one, anime-style arcade video fighting game that takes place in the Year 2010 in Tron City.

In this city, there is a school for special students called the Belnar Institute. Isato Kaiza, the hero of the story, is a student at this school. He also possesses a stone called a Caizer stone which transforms him into a super human fighter named Gowcaizer. The story begins as a new student named Kyosuke Shigure arrives at the school seeking revenge against its president, a mysterious man named Olga, who seems to be bent on destroying the world. So it's up to Gowcaizer, Kyosuke, and their allies to stop him.
