Inti Creates has been working on two Mega Man inspired platformer/shooters Azure Striker Gunvolt and Mighty No. 9 alongside Keiji Inafune and his studio at Comcept. We’ve caught word of yet another throwback shooter that is in the works at the studio, dubbed simply Mighty Gunvolt.
Featured above, a new trailer was show off for Azure Striker Gunvolt, but all the way at the end is a teaser trailer for Mighty Gunvolt, a game that is definitely channeling the NES style of visuals, music, and gameplay many of us grew up with. The 3DS title is set to arrive sometime this winter, via the eShop.
The core staff working on Mighty Gunvolt are a number of notable Japanese developers, known previously for their work on the Mega Man and Mega Man X series. They include: executive producer Keiji Inafune, director Ryota Ito, producer Takuya Aizu, and composer Ippo Yamada.
There are three playable characters confirmed thusfar, they are Azure Striker Gunvolt, Beck of Mighty No. 9, and Ekoro from the Japanese rail shooter Gal Gun. While both the male protagonists are generally no-nonsense characters, Ekoro is from a series known for its silliness and focus on getting women crazily in love with you.
Mighty Gunvolt has no price or release date yet outside of the general winter 2014 release. However, if you buy Azure Striker Gunvolt on 3DS between August 20th (release day) and November 19th, you’ll receive a code to download Mighty Gunvolt, free of charge, once it’s released.
