About Blaster Master Zero

For those unfamiliar, Blaster Master Zero was a remake of the classic SUNSOFT game, as well as a reboot into a new series! Starring young science genius Jason Frudnick aboard the Metal Attacker SOPHIA-III, his trusty frog (?) Fred, and the mysterious Eve, it quickly found an audience of both fans of the original and players brand new to the franchise.

In 2019, Blaster Master Zero 2 saw Jason launch into outer space on a journey across dimensions, directly following Blaster Master Zero’s story. Jason encountered many new faces, including the pilots of other Metal Attackers and their partners, greatly expanding the Blaster Master cast and universe.

Jason’s thrilling saga came to an exciting climax in Blaster Master Zero 3, as the worlds of “Blaster Master” and the original Japanese “Chou Wakusei Senki Metafight” collided head-first on the planet Sophia! Jason would encounter friend and foe, both old and new, on the planet which served as the stage for the original “Metafight” game that gave birth to the series. I hope all the fans out there have gotten a chance to play it!

Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2 Gets English Voiceover & Limited Run Games Release

Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2

Today is a big day for Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2! In our special livestream featuring the legend himself CDawgVA, we announced that Luminous Avenger iX 2 is getting full English voiceover and a Limited Run Games release!

It’s a Gunvolt dream come true!

The inclusion of English voiceover in LAiX2 is a first for a self-published INTI CREATES game! It’s something that I, your friendly neighborhood producer, have been hoping to do for a very long time, and let me tell you Gunvolt faithful, it feels so good to finally bring this goal to life.

With the help of the wonderful Diana Garnet (who some of you may know as the singer of the opening theme from Dragon Marked for Death and the English voice of Joule in the Gunvolt OVA anime!), we put together an incredible group of voice actors to bring this cast of characters to life.

Hearing characters speak English in a self-published game just hits different, and I sincerely hope you enjoy experiencing the game with English voiceover!

Without further ado, let’s meet the cast of Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2!

Copen – Alejandro Saab

Lola – Cassandra Lee Morris

Kohaku – Kira Buckland

Null – Natalie Rose Hoover


Dacite – Connor Colquhoun

Vespa – Brittany Cox

Autochrome – Daman Mills

Brigade – Steve “Warky” Nunez

Hail – Jennifer Losi

Ace – Arin Hanson

I can’t wait until everyone can hear them in action when Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX 2 releases on January 27, 2022!

Speaking of the release, I’m also very stoked to announce that our friends at Limited Run Games are bringing you the exclusive physical release for North America on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4! Pre-orders begin on January 25, 2022! This is the only physical release  of the game with an English cover and an ESRB rating, so make sure your region matches up accordingly!

The game is pre-packed with both English and Japanese voice acting in addition to the Kohaku Otori boss battle DLC (get a taste of the Kohaku battle during a previous livestream)!

It just wouldn’t be a Limited Run Games release without a sweet collector’s edition, right?  This baby comes packed with an adorable Lola pod keychain, so you can take everyone’s favorite robo cutie with you wherever you go! The soundtrack includes both the vocal tracks and stage BGM tunes as well, and we’re finishing it off with high-quality art cards of all the main cast from Luminous Avenger iX 2!

Just a little less than 2 months to go until Luminous Avenger iX 2 drops on January 27, 2022 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Steam!

We’re Bringing Back “INTI CREATES Live” Streams

It’s been about 3.5 years since Producer Matt Papa and the voice of Elise from Gunvolt 1, Ayano, did their comprehensive bilingual “INTI CREATES Live” streams, where they would bring you all of the latest Inti Creates news, special announcements, and more in both English and Japanese!

We decided it was about high time bring back the show so that we can deliver not only the latest information, but special announcements, and more as we try find new ways to communicate with you while we are stuck indoors during this crazy time in the world.

Even though this is technically episode #11, this time around, we’ve rebuilt the show from the ground up! We’re still delivering the content you expect from this show, but with a new group of MCs: Diana Garnet (singer of the DMFD theme song, English voice of Joule in the Gunvolt OVA anime) and Kenta Tanaka (Bandit in DMFD)!

We also have a special video message from Dragon Marked for Death producer Yoshifumi Hashimoto (HAKAMA) and more that you absolutely won’t wanna miss!

Start Time: Tuesday April 7th @ 8am Eastern / 2pm CEST / 9pm Japan

Watch it Live on YouTube right here:

The stream is also simulcast on Twitch and NicoNico Douga if you would rather watch it there!

Dragon Marked for Death Ver. 3.0.0 – New Characters & Japanese Voice Cast

The tale of the Dragonblood Clan continues when the Ver. 3.0.0 update for our action RPG title “Dragon Marked for Death” goes live on April 21st, 2020! This update to shaping up to be the game’s biggest one yet, and we have a lot of new content ready to drop with Ver. 3.0.0!

We have the new playable characters, the Oracle and the Bandit, in addition to other major new features like brand new weapon categories, powering up weapons as a whole, increased level caps, and host of other new features! The Oracle and the Bandit will be added to the game for free as part of the Ver. 3.0.0 update*,  giving even seasoned players who have been playing the game for the past year a wealth of new content to enjoy!

*Note:  The Oracle will unlock as a playable character once certain conditions within the main storyline of the game are met. The Bandit will unlock once certain conditions within the DLC Scenario “The Dragonblood Bandit” are met. 

As you may know, in Dragon Marked for Death, you can customize the main color, name, and voice when creating your characters. In the Ver. 3.0.0 update, just like the Empress, Warrior, Shinobi, and Witch before them, the Oracle and the Bandit have four possible Japanese voices to pick from. Let’s meet the Japanese voice cast and learn a little about each new character!

The Oracle

The Dragonblood Oracle, reincarnated once every 100 years.
She bears the Dragon Scar on her back.
The Oracle is able to communicate with the Astral Dragon Atruum and channel his power through the Dragon Wings that have manifested on her back.
Through this, she can reproduce the Astral Dragon’s own willpower and magical abilities. She has strong control over this power, allowing her to manipulate giant weapons through sheer force of will and copy them with magic.
She is also capable of using a magic focus to cast beneficial spells on herself and nearby allies, as well as attack spells of the element that corresponds to her dragon contract.

Slash Form: The Oracle commands her equipped greatswords to slash at a distance in front of her. It has high attack power, but leaves her wide open.
Quick: This spell increases movement speed temporarily, varying with magic incantations.

The Bandit

He is a young man of the Dragonblood Clan who bears the Dragon Scar on his hand.
His fist contains the power of the Astral Dragon Atruum that varies depending on his chosen dragon contract. It is capable of stealing the lifeforce of any living thing.
The Dragon Fist can steal this energy and crystallize it, forming magic items known as relics.
These relics are capable of manifesting various phenomena.
He specialize in luck, and earns the favor of his comrades by working as a Treasure Hunter.

Dragon Claw: His arm swells and thrusts forward, grabbing an enemy to extract relics.
Thunder Relic: The Bandit uses the power of a thunder relic, attacking with a quick dash forward. He is invincible while dashing, so he can use this to attack as well as to avoid damage.

Dragon Marked for Death is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop with a retail release available at stores like Amazon! We hope you have an amazing time with all the new content when the update drops on April 21st!

Things have been quiet here on the Inti blog for some time now, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! In fact, it’s -because- things have been so busy that the blog has unfortunately been quiet, but I think it’s about time to end that streak.

Our most recent game release was the Steam version of Blaster Master Zero 2 , and in the days that lead up to and followed the release we’ve been showcasing never-before-seen design documents and trivia that covers all of the game’s characters (and more)! Rather than make you good folks dig through our Twitter feed for everything, we decided that we’d put them all in one place for your viewing pleasure! We hope you enjoy all the art and commentary from director Nishizawa, designer Suzuki, and illustrator Natsume.
