That went fast
This week marks Inti Creates' 25th anniversary. Yes, the Japanese video game company was founded on 8th May 1996. Over the past 25 years, it's worked on games like Mega Man Zero, Mega Man ZX, Gal Gun, Azure Striker Gunvolt, Mighty Gunvolt
Inti Creates did a fantastic job of continuing on the legacy of Mega Man in its own way with the stellar Azure Striker Gunvolt games, which first debuted on the 3DS a few years back. The two games just saw a rerelease on the Switch with the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack and while what’s next for the series is still just about...

Announcement due 'directly' this week (we added 'directly'...)
To those that suggested the rapid removal of online Azure Striker Gunvolt details in Europe - before a tease of upcoming release details for the region - meant a Nintendo Direct was in the offing, a hat tip is due. There is indeed a Nintendo Dir
Why not, it's Friday!
Azure Striker Gunvolt is taking its sweet time coming to Europe, but that's somewhat understandable with Inti Creates publishing itself and not necessarily having experience of the region's ratings and localisation requirements. As one of the best action games on the 3DS eShop since its arrival in Japan and North America,...
All age ratings now in order, reports developer Inti Creates
Remember Azure Striker Gunvolt? It came out in North America in August last year, but 3DS owners in Europe (and Down Under) are still patiently waiting for their chance to play the game. The delay may have been a painful one, but according to developer Inti Creates, it's almost over. The...
Mario vs. Donkey Kong and OlliOlli x2, Proun+ and much more
It's time for more Nintendo Download Update treats, North American gamers, and this week brings the region its first cross-buy options on Nintendo's systems. We have Mario toys puzzling their way through levels and some rad pixelated skateboarding across Wii U and 3DS, while there are also...
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...
A mighty update to version 2.0 is also on the way
DLC in the form of new bosses and stages has been on the cards for Mighty Gunvolt since it was revealed back in August that the title would be a free download for Azure Striker Gunvolt owners in Japan. Now, the first details about the downloadable content for the Inti Cr
As we expected, right?
With retro-styled 2D action title Azure Striker Gunvolt now available on the 3DS eShop in North America, and a European release date bound to pop-up at some point in the near future, Australians have been left wondering where they fit in. Normally, Aussie releases fall under European PAL territory – and that’s probably...
SteamWorld, The Fall, Azure Striker Gunvolt, Mega Man X3 and much more
It's that time again, North American gamers, as we learn what download treats will be joining the eShop stores today. There's plenty on offer, too, with enticing new titles on both Wii U and 3DS, alongside a range of DLC and discounts. There's a lot to consider, so let's get on...
A free extra with Azure Striker Gunvolt in Japan and NA

You don't get to become an "action director" for nothing
Action platformer fans might already know that Mega Man designer Keiji Inafune and Inti Creates are in cahoots. The development company is lending its considerable talent toward the production of Inafune's Mighty No. 9 while Inafune was announced as "action director" of Inti Creates's Azure...
At a thoroughly reasonable $14.99, EU version in the works

Ponytail and midriff mysteriously removed
Keiji Inafune and Inti Creates must think North Americans don't appreciate masculine heroes with luscious locks and bellies showing. NeoGAF user Rockman ZX noticed a subtle difference between the Japanese and North American artwork for Inafune-san's upcoming Mega Man X-style action platformer Azure Striker...
Progress towards a Western release
One month ago, Japanese studio Inti Creates announced it's collaborating with Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune on a new futuristic action-platformer for the 3DS eShop, titled Azure Striker Gunvolt. We still haven't heard anything about a firm release date outside Japan for the game [article updated to reflect NA...
Releases this summer on the Japanese 3DS eShop
