<CORRECTION: We previously reported that the version update will coincide with the release of Mighty Gunvolt as a standalone game on November 28th. This was an error. Rather, the update will coincide with the release of the DLC instead, at a date to be announced soon. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.>
We here at Inti Creates are very happy to announce that Mighty Gunvolt will be receiving a version update and DLC package! Mighty Gunvolt will go on sale as a standalone game on November 28th for $3.99 (USD).

A release date for the version update and DLC package is coming very soon, so stay tuned for an update in regards to that. The update can be downloaded from the eShop free of charge when it is available. Now, let’s have a look at what is coming with the update and DLC!
