Inti Creates has been releasing its games on Nintendo systems for many years now. More recently on the Switch, we've seen titles such as Dragon: Marked for Death and Blaster Master Zero 2 made available. There's no plan to stop anytime soon, either.
During a recent chat with Nintendo Everything, company president Takuya Aizu reassured loyal fans the Switch would remain a priority and further explained how the Japanese developer built its legacy on Nintendo's systems:
We have every intention of putting pretty much every single one of our titles on the Nintendo Switch. Whether it will be available on other platforms or not is kind of like on a game-by-game basis. But don’t expect us to pull our support for the Nintendo Switch anytime soon.
I can’t emphasize enough the fact enough you really don’t have to worry about our support for Nintendo Switch disappearing. You’ve gotta remember, Inti Creates is basically a company that built its legacy from the get-go on Nintendo platforms, and we have pretty much all of the staff at Inti Creates loves Nintendo games, loves Nintendo platforms, so when we basically create a new game, the first system we always imagine it on is a Nintendo system, so you can pretty much expect this to keep kind of continuing our trend of creating games on a Nintendo platform and then where appropriate and where possible, porting them to other systems from there.
In terms of the future, Inti Creates has some updates planned for Dragon: Marked for Death and is focused on Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX. It has a few other titles in mind as well. One will be a multiplatform release and the other is more likely to be a Switch exclusive. There'll also be a third Azure Striker Gunvolt game, which Yoshihisa Tsuda (series director) is currently thinking about.
although he hasn’t really done anything on it yet – we of course have Gunvolt 3 that Tsuda-san is thinking about in his head
Are you glad to hear Inti Creates remains committed to Switch and Nintendo platform development? Are you looking forward to any of its upcoming releases? Leave a comment down below.
Personally, my favorite publisher this gen. Loved all their games so far. Even Dragon Marked for Death was absolutely fun to play single player. Played only with the Empress and it took me approx 40 hours - had more fun grinding in that game than in Diablo III
These guys understand 2d classic games better than anyone else and it shows with games like the Bloodstained 2d title and the Blaster master remakes.
Dragon marked for death is the only one I haven't bought from their line up, and the one that shall not be named (Kickstarter disaster of the century)
That’s wonderful. They won’t drop support. Thanks guys
Let them make that Zelda II remake already!
The exact opposite of EA and Falcom’s take. I love it! Nintendo really should let them have a go at that Zelda II remake they pitched.
It probably won’t happen, but I’d totally be down for these guys to be able to use Nintendo IP. Somebody has to make a new 2D Metroid, and Inti making one with Nintendo’s oversight could be a great idea.
@locky-mavo I imagine if we ever get a Zelda 2 Remake, it'll be done by the guys who made the Metroid 2 remake on the 3ds. Though a while back in an interview Miyamoto and Aonuma hinted that they would like to revisit Zelda 2 as more of a DK Country like game. They said this jokingly ofcourse, but with Nintendo you never know -_-
I love the Gunvolt series. Good to hear they're gonna keep supporting the Switch.
I hope they can work out a deal with Capcom and release a Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. It would be nice to get to play those games on the Switch.
I figured this would be the typical responses on this site. People flaming Falcom but praising Inti Creates.
Dragon Marked For Death is Highly underrated
@Xelha Well, all companies love money.
Oh Inti, we love you too.
Never doubted Inti for a second, but it’s nice to hear them assure everyone. They’re AAA indie in my mind, and their games are shining examples of a quality value balance.
Inti Creates is awesome. I love there games. The Gunvolt games were pretty fun. And Blaster Master 1 and 2 were fun too. Looking forward to see what Inti Creates has next for the Switch.
Nice, I really enjoyed the Blaster Master Zero games especially 2. I'm definitely getting Gunvolt Striker Pack before Chronicles comes out.
Don't forget to preorder
I love their games, and have bought nearly everyone they’ve released. Their quality equals that of the 80s/90s Nintendo and Capcom games. Nintendo should start stamping their Seal of Quality on Inti titles.
Love their work. I wasn't feeling Dragon much, but most of their work is top notch.
I love Inti-Creates and I'm glad this is how they feel. Looking forward to all they throw at me. Definitely one of my current and all time favorite devs.
@Dualmask Yeah Dragon started off rocky. Mechanically it’s superb just like all their stuff. But flow/game loop was a little lacking originally. They’ve patched and patched and patched since release, but I haven’t tested out all the new features. Felt like they released like 40 updates though lol.
Capcom should definitely let these guys make the next Mega Man X games. Doesn't seem like Capcom know what to do with the series anymore.
Why was this a worry?
I want more Dragon Marked for Death content!
I initially read this headline as Inti was Creating a game called "Loves Nintendo" and releasing it on all platforms. My mind went to a crazy all inclusive title that stars Nintendo characters from all generations going through different worlds like a fully realized Sub-Space Emissary. Then I realized my sleep deprived confusion (newborn baby in the house) and wasn't as excited.
i wonder if dragon marked for death will go on sale soon, i wanted to pick it up(maybe i should have since the online component might be on a timer) but i was worried about making the wrong choice committing to a set of characters.
@ancientlii As far as I know the online component is P2P. It functions almost exactly like Monster Hunter, so hopefully that means we won’t have to worry about it being on a timer. That said, local multi will still work, and the entire thing can be done solo - or at least it could before updates. Haven’t played much since about 10 updates ago.
@Coalescence Bahahah, yes newborns have that awesome ability to fry a brain. I’ve got a 3 1/2 yr old daughter and 9mo old daughter. Both like to be night owls....
@Coalescence Congrats on your new born, may they sleep through the night soon and the Loves Nintendo game sounds like it would be hilariously fun if it were real.
these guys should of been the ones to make the switch version of ritual of the night instead of the lazy 505 devs.
If only I liked any of their games. I played Blaster Master Zero when the switch was new and had few indies and I hated it. Everything else they put out doesn’t even look like my style of game, so I don’t even bother when I see Inti Creates anymore
These guys have become one of my favorite developers. Blaster Master Zero 1 & 2 and Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon were very good games at a reasonable price. Still working through Mighty Gunvolt Burst, but mostly because I struggle with Mega Man style games.
I know right. Twas just as predictable as this cliche'd & inevitable comment you made that wayyyy overgeneralizes & making a big deal out of something that's not happening even a tenth as much as you're making it out to be. So maybe you're both right on cue. Funny thing I've noticed about a bulk of the folks so quick to call out others or insinuate they have a particular hating, fanboying bias or whatever is that they conveniently (and often consistently) aren't as quick to police others. It's usually pretty selective. Which ironically usually shows one"s own bias, hating or fanboying ways.
So, did you rush over to pushsquare or sony centric sites to call out the sony fanboys who were hating on Microsoft for acquisitions, but frenching sony"s cheeks for purchasing insomniac? Or maybe Microsoft boards to comment on the fans of theirs who talked about other companies sequels when we've had so many Forzas? I hope so as it would go a long way proving that we're not being selective & disingenuous.
On the flip side of that though, man; you must have a lot of time on your hands & energy for the policing that would be needed. Especially if you're policing like you did here where you're quick getting on "people" like it's a whole bunch of folks going on about it when there's only been ONE I think we've seen so far.
Woo everyone is pilling on EA.
Jokes aside I am always happy to hear a good dev in for the long haul.
Reminds me to get back into BMZ2.
