After Inti Creates managed to score it big with the release of Blaster Master Zero, the remake of the NES classic, they’ve decided to continue moving forward with Nintendo Switch releases. They have two new games on the horizon, Mighty Gunvolt Burst and the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack.
Gematsu is reporting that the Mighty Gunvolt Burst is a crossover featuring Gunvolt from Azure Striker and Beck from Comcept’s Mighty No. 9.
Not everyone was pleased to find out that Beck from the Kickstarter abomination made it into Inti Creates’ Mighty Gunvolt Burst. Some gamers (and backers) are still reeling from the gut-punch they received from having played the original Mighty No. 9. It was one of the more high-profile failures in the crowd-funding scene.
However, on the upside, Inti Creates is completely in charge of Mighty Gunvolt Burst, so you don’t have to worry about SJW community reps tanking the game before release or any sort of other shenanigans ruining the experience.
The news piece notes that there will be character customization using Cost Points to unlock and upgrade abilities. There’s also a “Burst” feature that will allow you to finish off enemies in explosive ways that will earn you additional CP, along with reworked pixel visuals to take advantage of the Switch’s hardware. You can look for the game to launch on both the Switch starting June 15th for $10.00 on the Nintendo eShop and on June 29th for the Nintendo 3DS.
Additionally, Inti Creates will release a second pack for the Nintendo Switch on August 31st called Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack. This pack contains both Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. The dual pack is designed to offer Switch owners 60fps of HD pixelated goodness complete with HD rumble support.
Inti Creates managed to post profits with Blaster Master Zero on the 3DS and Switch, moving 80,000 copies of their indie title from March to May on the Switch alone. It looks like they’ll continue to port some of their older titles to the Switch while the system is still starved of third-party support.
