Inti Creates made two announcements last week. The first is that the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack is coming to Switch, while Mighty Gunvolt Burst is in the works for both Switch and 3DS.

USgamer spoke with Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu following the news. For Azure Striker Gunvolt, Aizu spoke about how the Striker Pack came to be on Switch and confirmed that they’re trying to release a physical version in the west. Aizu also confirmed that Mighty Gunvolt Burst will be adding more characters and spoke about how Mighty No. 9 isn’t a direct influence on the game.

Read up on these comments from Aizu below. You can find USgamer’s full piece here.

At BitSummit, Skeleton Crew Studio was showing its newly-confirmed Switch game BackSlash. Have a look at some footage below via an official live stream segment.

Momodora V was on display for the first time at BitSummit 2017 this weekend. During the show’s official live stream, Nayan Ramachandran from publisher Dangen Entertainment stopped by to show off the game.

For now, Momodora V is only confirmed for PC. But it could end up on multiple platforms, including Switch.

Ramachandran said the following when asked if the game is being considered for consoles:

“What we want to do is obviously do as many platforms as possible. There’s nothing we can announce right now in terms of other platforms, but it’s definitely something we’re looking at. Honestly it would be silly for us not to. Right now we really work with PC, with PlayStation 4, and with Switch. Whether or not Momodora finds its way to all those platforms is yet to be seen, it just comes down to the hardware capabilities, our time, able to do it. As far as what we want to do, absolutely.”

Momodora is a series of platformers developed by Bombservice. Momodora V marks the first time that the franchise is experimenting with a 3D style. This new entry is a long ways off, as launch is about two years away.

There’s been a somewhat confusing situation surrounding Namco Museum. The collection of games, announced for Switch, was revealed during a Nintendo Direct in April. In the presentation, Nintendo clearly states that Namco Museum is a digital title. That’s why it didn’t make much sense when boxart for the game surfaced. We’ve been trying to reach out to Bandai Namco, and may finally have an answer.

We did attempt to contact Bandai Namco in North America, but unfortunately did not receive a response. However, Bandai Namco Europe made things pretty clear to us. We were explicitly told that Namco Museum is a digital release.

That doesn’t explain why Bandai Namco went out of its way to create a boxart image. Still, despite that, we have no reason to believe it will be placed on store shelves.

Earth Atlantis, listed for Switch on the BitSummit website, is now officially confirmed for Switch. It’ll be Switch-only in Japan, and it’ll also be distributed in the west on the system alongside other platforms.

One segment of the official BitSummit stream showed Earth Atlantis in action. Check out a bit of footage below from the recording.

After several years of development, A Hat in Time is finally starting to wrap up. Gears for Breakfast announced a release window of Fall 2017 for the 3D platformer just a few days ago.

Over on Twitter, the developer has expressed interest in making a Switch version happen. There’s just one issue: Nintendo of America isn’t responding to the team’s inquiries.

The official Twitter page for A Hat in Time posted a few hours ago:

A Hat in Time seems like the type of game that would be a great fit on Switch. Hopefully Gears for Breakfast will find a way to make it happen, and hopefully Nintendo will eventually respond. Showing your support certainly couldn’t hurt.


Some off-screen footage of Kingdoms: Two Crowns running on Switch has emerged from BitSummit. Take a look at the video below.

At BitSummit this weekend, Pygmy Studio and original Chibi-Robo director Kenichi Nishi are showing off a new Switch project tentatively known as LUNAXXX. Footage and details are now in – at least of the prototype version.

LUNAXXX features a character that has already appeared in a mobile title. In that game, civilization has been destroyed and is buried underground. This new Switch project acts like a prequel and the goal is to save as many people as possible by fishing.

Mighty Gunvolt Burst
