Inti Creates is a developer with a terrific reputation, specialising in pixel-art and action games, playing a vital role in the development of Mighty No. 9 but more notably releasing the brilliant Azure Striker Gunvolt on the 3DS eShop. We admired this title for its classic approach but also its innovative approach to the action platforming genre, awarding it 9/10 in our review.

The good news is that a sequel is on the way to the 3DS, with Inti Creates making the announcement during its Fan Festa event in Japan.

After all the support we received from our fans, we decided that we are going to give Gunvolt a second installment on the Nintendo 3DS!

As time goes on we will have more information, but for now, we are happy to report that Gunvolt is coming back to strike once again!

The first game arrived in North America in August 2014, though Europe is still awaiting its arrival; no doubt we'll hear more about this sequel in the coming weeks and months.
