“Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon” & “Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX” at BitSummit 2018

Bloodstained Curse of the Moon - Hero Banner (small)

Greetings from Kyoto!

At BitSummit, Japan’s biggest indie game event, we were pleased to reveal for the first time today not one, but TWO brand new games: “Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon” and “Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX”

“Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon” is the title that we originally promised to make in tandem with Koji Igarashi during the Bloodstained Kickstarter campaign back in 2015. Mr. Igarashi’s unmatched experience with these kinds of games combined with our staff’s talent and enthusiasm for the project created a game that feels both nostalgic and like a fresh new experience at the same time.

Curse of the Moon is packed with the retro charm that made the legendary 2D action games of the 80s so enjoyable. Take control of one of four characters that can be interchanged at any time during gameplay: The sword-swinging exorcist Zangetsu, the whip-wielding heroine Miriam, the magic using alchemist Alfred, and Gebel, who can turn into a bat and take to the skies. You can experience multiple endings depending on how you interact with the characters you meet.

Luminous Avenger iX is a new title in the universe of the Gunvolt series, which began with 2014’s Nintendo 3DS eShop title “Azure Striker Gunvolt,” which was followed by 2016’s “Azure Striker Gunvolt 2.” This new title sees Gunvolt series anti-hero “Copen” take the starring role. The Inti Creates team is hard at work on this project centering around this popular character from the Gunvolt universe, and more details are to be announced this summer, so look forward to hearing more info soon!

The Start of Bi-Weekly Livestreams from Inti HQ

Hangin'-at-IntiHQ_hetare1_L

For a while now, we here at Inti Creates have been doing periodic livestreams on our Twitch channel  to commemorate special occasions, share major news tidbits, and even a monthly show back in the day with some of the Gunvolt voice actresses to help promote those games. Now, it’s time to start doing these on a regular schedule, at dates and times viewers will know well in advance!

I always loved doing livestreams for you guys, and now that we have a second international affairs team member, Andrew, the scope of what we can do on livestreams for our English speaking fans has increased dramatically. That, combined with our shiny new streaming set-up in the office, allows us to produce regular streaming content for you guys. So, that’s exactly what we are going to do!

During our “Hangin’ at Inti HQ” livestreams, we like to keep things light, fun, and welcoming. Since I started doing this show, there have been some staple segments of the program that regular users have probably come to expect, such as a breakdown of the latest Inti Creates news, dedicated Q&A segment with the chat, and live gameplay from one of our latest games. These segments will continue to be a part of the show, and we have been thinking of a number of new ideas we can incorporate into the show going forward.

With that being said though, we would love to hear from you! What kind of things would you like to see on our livestreams?  Like with any show, we will continue to make adjustments as we grow and improve, and sincerely hope that you join us on this journey!

Upcoming Schedule:

  • Nov. 2 12pm JST / Nov. 1 11pmEST | 8pmPST
  • Nov. 16 12pm JST / Nov. 15 11pmEST | 8pmPST
  • Nov. 30 12pm JST / Nov. 29 11pmEST | 8pmPST
  • Dec. 14 12pm JST / Dec. 13 11pmEST | 8pmPST
