Mighty Gunvolt Burst Worldwide Release Dates Set for June 2017

Inti Creates have announced the release dates for Mighty Gunvolt Burst.

The upcoming enhanced port will launch worldwide on June 15th for the Nintendo Switch, June 29th for the Nintendo 3DS, and on June 28th in Japan.

Featured above, you can view the game’s first trailer, which gives a nice overview of what to expect in the coming enhanced version. The new Burst version of the game adds new features like a “Burst Combo” system and a character growth mechanic. Nintendo Switch owners can naturally expect HD Rumble support.

Here’s a full rundown on the game, via Inti Creates:

The game systems have been completely revamped and powered up with lots of new additions, including a deep character customization system that lets you mold and shape your character into the ultimate hero that works best for you!

The classic pixel style graphics have also been completely redone to blur the line between 8-bit and 16-bit and take you back to the golden age of 2D action games!

Gunvolt from Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 and Beck from Mighty No. 9 make their return as playable characters! Find out what happens when their home worlds intertwine in the realm of virtual reality!

How Mighty Gunvolt Burst Came to Be

We really enjoyed creating the original Mighty Gunvolt back in 2014, and with our duties with the Mighty No. 9 project being long over at this point, we began to miss working with these characters that we love, and wanted to share Beck and his mighty siblings with the world once again. Comcept gave us the OK to use the rights to these characters however we see fit (and free of charge too), and from there, we set out to bring them back to the stage in the best way we know how: 100% pure Inti Creates 2D side-scrolling action with excellent pixel art!

With that said, let’s take a look at some of the key features of Mighty Gunvolt Burst!

Burst Combo

Finish off an enemy up close to trigger a “Burst”! Enemies explode in a more glorious way, and you earn extra points toward your high score! Chain together a bunch of Bursts to start a Burst Combo and take your score to new heights! Bosses can also be defeated with a Burst, so try to end the battle with a Burst!

Customization System

Collect a bunch of different modules to add new items to your customization loadout! If you wanna increase your abilities, you’re gonna need Cost Points (CP). As long as your loadout value doesn’t exceed your available CP, you can create any setup and change it any time. A wide variety of shot customization options await from piercing bullets, homing shots, and a lot more! You can also test your changes on the Customization screen as you go so you can discover the perfect shot for you!

Pixel Stickers

Pixel Stickers are icons that feature 8-bit versions of numerous characters (and more)that are scattered throughout the game. These stickers can be obtained by discovering them as you traverse stages, by obtaining rare drops by defeating enemies, and many other ways too.

HD Rumble Feature on Nintendo Switch

There are many areas in the game that at first glance look like normal walls/terrain, but when you shoot them, they can be destroyed. On the Nintendo Switch version, by using Cost Points on an ability called Dowsing, the HD Rumble feature will kick in when you draw close to a suspicious area. The Dowsing ability goes a really long way when it comes to hunting down hidden items, so make sure you get your hands on the Dowsing module.

Character Intro – Beck

Beck is a robot created by Dr. White who has the ability to think and feel. His ability to absorb Xel from robots and learn their abilities has been disabled during his virtual reality training session, so he no longer has access to those abilities while stuck in this virtual world. His only weapon is a new armament entrusted to him by Dr. White.

Character Intro – Gunvolt

Gunvolt is an Adept, a person who possesses supernatural septimal powers, who can control lightning. The soul of a girl named Joule, AKA “The Muse”, resides within him. Ever since he was brought to this strange new virtual world, his septimal powers have been severely weakened, although his gun and his Astrasphere skill seem to be in order. When Gunvolt is in grave danger, Joule will appear to bestow her protective powers on him.

    It’s crazy that Inti creates seem to be getting much better use out of Mighty then Concept has. I would not mind if Concept just says fuck it and pawns Mighty off to them.

    This reminds me of Duke Nukem now being reduced to cameoing in Bullet Storm for a living. Except it took 6 years and a lot of games before for ol’ Duke, and less than a year and one game for Mighty N°9. Wow.

    So is this meant to be an enhanched port, remake or sequel?

    Hold on just one fucking second, lmfao. So first we have a sequel, which is exclusive to Switch (Mighty Gunvolt Burst), but here’s the best part! Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack will be 60 FPS on Switch. I mean, isn’t the PC version capped at 30 fps? Is this the power of the master race? I’m genuinely surprised, because most of you fucks put the PC platform up on a pedestal but this is just pathetic and disgusting.

    I’d love it if Inti just used Beck as a way of reviving the 8-bit Megaman series.

    Nah, if anything Mighty should die since it’s so filled with the anger of its audience.

    pls no more narrated trailers about blue-themed characters that jump a set height and shoot things from a distance

    I’ve had enough of those for a lifetime.

    It was always my assumption that it was due to Comcept’s meddling that MN9 turned out crap, and the trailer only reaffirms that. It also gives me the impression that this is Inti Creates way to show everyone how they would’ve made the game.

    My only concern is that any positive feedback this game gets would give Inafune the delusional idea of making a sequel to MN9 or move forward with any of his other ideas to make it into a new franchise.

    But what about that prom date?

    A shooter that encourages going close range? What’s the point?

    Is it too soon to say that this is looking to be a much better Mighty N. 9 game than the actual game itself?

    Game will sell like sh*t. This property is cursed.

    Inti Creates seems to not realized how much of a turd that scam was.

    So boycott some more of those cunts? Good idea!

    InaFRAUDne hates Japan so it wouldn’t be a surprise if it will.

    I have no problem supporting Inti, but anything with Inafune remotely attached makes me want to completely ignore this.

    I’m debating something, I never received my backer copy of MN9 and I refuse to pay for the trash, so I’m in a good position to completely repress all that and pretend this is the game I helped funded instead.

    wait so the dowsing thing is just the rumble pak going off when you get close to a secret? Kind of dumb to put emphasis on the “HD rumble” aspect.

    I think you should go after your backer copy. Even if the game sucks.

    I would rather have an 8bit Gunvolt without the Mighty No. 9.

    from my understanding, he has no involvement with this,
    Seems like Inti just went to Comcept and said, “Yo, we want to use these characters”
    and they just let to do whatever they wanted.

    i heard that too, it’s just the thought that it’s still something that by extension has something to do with him(even if it’s just his creation) and MN9 still has a sour taste for me.

    Like, don’t get me wrong, this looks like fun, inti hasn’t made a game that I didn’t enjoy so far, and most likely I’ll buy it. Really, I’m just kind of bitching and beating a dead horse a little.

    you’re right in that I probably should, but Comcept really hasn’t answered any of my emails, and I’m willing to accept that and cut my losses. If it ever becomes free I’ll try it out though.
