Big AAA publishers and development studios may be passing over the Nintendo Switch or giving their reasons as to why it's not a system they'll be working on, but smaller indie studios and mid-budget outlets are jumping on every chance possible to port their games to Nintendo's highly popular new system, and that includes Inti Creates' Mighty Gunvolt Burst.
IGN is reporting that during the weekend BitSummit event, Inti Creates announced that Mighty Gunvolt Burst and Azure Striker Gunvolt: Stricker Pack will be making their way to the Nintendo Switch. This follows on the recent news that Inti Creates' Blaster Master Zero for the Nintendo Switch moved 80,000 copies since its release on the Nintendo Switch back in March.
For a small studio out of Japan, with basically no marketing and being able to build sales on word of mouth alone, the game managed to sell quite well. They even decided to follow up with additional DLC for Blaster Master Zero, giving gamers something extra to sink their teeth into.
According to IGN, the upcoming Mighty Gunvolt Burst will feature Gunvolt as the main character and he'll be sharing the spotlight with Beck from Comcept's Mighty No. 9. The duo will take on baddies in the side-scroller starting June 15th on the Nintendo Switch. Gamers will be able to pick up a digital copy of Mighty Gunvolt Burst for only $10. This is probably why they were able to garner so many sells in such a short amount of time Blaster Master Zero, since they managed to move tens of thousands of copies very quickly.
Inti Creates also noted that Mighty Gunvolt Burst will come jam packed with customization features for players to dabble around with for both characters. They don't go into depth about the customization but I'm assuming this means different powers and abilities to utilize during the levels for Beck and Azure, not unlike the way the Mighty No. 9 and Mega Man games work.
The second pack, the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack is due for release on August 31st for the Nintendo Switch, but they haven't ironed out a price for the game pack yet.
The pack for the Switch will take advantage of things like hard-lock gameplay at 60 frames per second and HD rumble support. All of the DLC from the Nintendo 3DS version will also be included in the pack.
Some people in the comment section had mentioned that they weren't at all interested because of Mighty No. 9 and how badly Comcept messed up with the game.
Well, the reality is that Comcept has nothing to do with the Mighty Azure Burst crossover game for the Nintendo Switch. Inti Creates is working on the game, and you won't have to worry about the hiccups and holdups that turned Mighty No. 9 into what it was.
Nevertheless, if you're looking for a crossover platformer this June, and you seem to want to expand your Nintendo Switch library with a worthwhile game, you can do so with Mighty Azure Burst. If you still need more Inti Creates titles in your life you can look to pick up the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack at the end of August.
