At long last, the update that brings DLC functionality to both Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 (and Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack version of GV2 as well) goes live on March 9th in both North America and Europe! There’s loads of new goodies available like a new song, new game mode, extra missions, and more!
Blaster Master Zero makes a surprise debut on the Nintendo Switch!
During today’s Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase, we revealed for the first time that Blaster Master Zero is coming to both the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS on March 9, 2017 in North America and Europe! This is our first release as an official development partner for the Nintendo Switch, and needless to say, we couldn’t be any more excited about it!
The Switch version differs a bit from the 3DS version in that it has features that take advantage of the Switch hardware, such as HD Rumble compatibility and a brand new co-op Multiplayer mode where 2 players can play using the Joy-Con controllers!
That’s right, Strikers! Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime has an official release date of February 9, 2017, and will be releasing worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS eShop! We are super excited for all of you Strikers to finally get your hands on on the Gunvolt anime, so we put together another trailer to give you an even bigger taste of what’s to come! As promised, the anime will be available in its original Japanese with English subtitles AND English dub as well, so without further ado, also me to introduce you to the English cast of the Gunvolt anime in our new trailer! Enjoy!
Gal*Gunners around the world, I want to thank you from the bottom of my silly heart for helping Gal*Gun Double Peace clear 100,000 units sold worldwide! When Double Peace first came out in Japan back in 2015, I can assure you that there wasn’t single person here who thought a Gal*Gun would ever even come close to 6-digit sales numbers…and yet, here we are! I’m feeling a bit reminiscent about how this all went down, so gather ’round Gal*Gunners. It’s story time.
Seasons greetings once again, Strikers! The year 2017 is less than a week away, and considering this is our last day at the office before we break for the new year, we wanted to share a bunch of goodies with you before we head home!
Seasons Greetings, Strikers! Christmas is almost here, and once again, Azure Striker Gunvolt character artist Yoshitaka Hatakeyama delivers some GV themed holiday cheer with this new Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 Christmas wallpaper! How freakin’ cute are Joule and Lola? Thanks for the early Christmas present, Hatakeyama-san!
We also have good news for the North American version of Azure Striker Gunvolt 1! After the most recent patch update, we received reports from you guys that Special Mission 5 wasn’t working, and indeed, it was not. We apologize for this error, and with this new Patch 1.4 that will be available tomorrow (12/22) on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, that error has been fixed.
We hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas! I would wish you guys a happy new year as well, but I have a feeling that you’ll be hearing from us again before the year is out…hehe :3
Good day, Strikers! As things start wrapping up around here while we prepare to say goodbye to 2016, I wanted to take a minute to update you guys on where we stand on the Gunvolt anime OVA. We originally said in the trailer (which you can see below) that it would be released in Winter of 2016, however, due to various circumstances, releasing before the year ends is unfortunately not going to be able to happen.
Now, with that being said, the “Winter” part of that original release time-frame still holds true, we just unfortunately were unable to meet the “2016” part. We are going to release it as soon as we possibly can worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Considering the vast majority of things we need to do to release it are now done, it really won’t be much longer now.
Right now, we are aiming towards releasing the Gunvolt anime in North America, Europe, and Japan next month (January 2017), so we will keep doing what we can to make that happen. As soon as we have a release date(s) nailed down, we will share that information with you guys. Thanks for your understanding, and we hope you enjoy the anime when it comes out!
Happy Thanksgiving, Strikers! We got a triad of excellent announcements to share with you guys during this festive time, but before we get to that…
Being that it is Thanksgiving and all, I want to take a minute to personally thank the fans who supported us this year by buying our new releases like Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 and Gal*Gun Double Peace (or heck, our older titles too!) and coming to see us at events like Anime Expo, PAX West, or MAGFest to name a few. It’s been a very busy and exciting year for us with the release of two Inti Creates IPs this summer, and now we have our sights looking forward to the release of Blaster Master Zero and that neat stuff we have cooking for the Nintendo Switch! Oh yeah, in case you didn’t hear, we’re official dev partners for the Switch, and yes, we are really stoked about it!
Inti Creates takes the reigns on the rebirth of the Blaster Master series with “Blaster Master Zero”
At our 20th Anniversary Fan Festa event held in Ichikawa, Japan, we announced that we will be releasing a new game titled Blaster Master Zero that will release on the Nintendo 3DS eshop in Spring 2017!
We acquired the license to the original Blaster Master game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988 by Sunsoft, and began work on a new title for the series.
