Inti Creates’ action platformer series Gunvolt and Mighty No. 9 are coming to Nintendo Switch in June in the form of Mighty Gunvolt Burst, the developer announced this weekend.
Mighty Gunvolt Burst will see Gunvolt — who first appeared in Nintendo 3DS game Azure Striker Gunvolt — team up with Beck from Mighty No. 9 for a new adventure with new gameplay mechanics. The two heroes previously appeared together in the 3DS spinoff Mighty Gunvolt, which was later ported to PlayStation and PC platforms.
Mighty Gunvolt Burst’s new scoring mechanic requires players to finish off enemies with point blank-range shots. Chaining together those combos will lead to higher combo multipliers and, naturally, better scores. Inti Creates promises a deep character customization feature, letting players modify how weapons and character abilities work on the fly.
Inti Creates will release Mighty Gunvolt Burst via the Nintendo Switch eShop on June 15 for $9.99. A Nintendo 3DS version will follow on June 29.
Inti Creates also announced that it will release the Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack, which contains 3DS games Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, for Nintendo Switch in August. The collection will include all of the games’ downloadable content, and will feature updated graphics, a 60 fps framerate, HD Rumble support and other improvements.
The Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack will be released Aug. 31. Pricing has not been announced.
