Inti Creates

When Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 heads to Japan on August 25, Inti Creates will be offering a special package version with the first game included. Although we did hear about interest in having it available in the west as well, there wasn’t anything too concrete to go on… until now.

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack has now been rated in Australia. Even more interesting is that Shovel Knight creator Yacht Club Games is listed as publisher. Now that the Australian listing has surfaced, hopefully we’ll see an announcement soon!


We previously mentioned that a launch stream was held for Mighty No. 9 today. Creator Keiji Inafune was naturally in attendance, as was translator Ben Judd.

Kotaku has since picked out a few notable quotes from the stream. One of the big takeaways was Inafune essentially taking responsibility for any problems associated with the game while also commenting on topics like the Kickstarter budget, the difficulty in making a ton of versions at once, and more.

Head past the break for a recap of Inafune’s comments. Note that Judd mixed in the translations with some of his own commentary, which Kotaku tries to point out.

A bunch of Mighty No. 9 footage has popped up over the past few days, but how’s the game looking specifically on Wii U? You can see for yourself in the video below.

Mighty No. 9 finally launched today, but things haven’t exactly been going smoothly. On Wii U, some players have been reporting various issues. Perhaps most concerning is that the game is apparently bricking some consoles.

Publisher Deep Silver appears to be aware of at least some of the issues facing Mighty No. 9, and thankfully, a patch is already being deployed. We’re hearing that it’s already out in Europe, with North America to follow by day’s end.

An official statement from Deep Silver reads:

“We’re aware of some isolated incidents of consumers experiencing issues on Wii U, and they’re actually being addressed in a patch that’s deploying out on Wii U systems today. The patch is already live in Europe, and should be hitting U.S. before the end of the day.”


Another round of footage has come in for Mighty No. 9. You’ll find around 40 minutes of gameplay in the video below.

The official launch trailer is in for Mighty No. 9. To see the newest video, continue on below.

GamesRadar recently held a live stream to show footage from the final version of Mighty No. 9. The full Twitch recording can be found after the break.

Inti Creates shared a bunch of new Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 screenshots and details earlier in the week. This time around, we have big updates on the group G7, and a ton of specifics about two of their members.

First, the screenshots:

And now for the details:

The Grimoired Seven (more widely known as G7) is a group of seven people with abilities who have extraordinary 7th Waves even among Eden, and possess Fairy Tales. Eden doesn’t have a clear hierarchical positioning, but commands are often given to the G7, and they are yearned by other members of Eden.

Eden is a multinational union of ability people who have the 7th Wave. Their numbers are fewer than ordinary people, but they have enormous power. Most of the members used to be oppressed by ordinary people. They aim for the establishment of an ideal state for only ability people, advocating that “The ability people is the new mankind to build a new era, and the old mankind which don’t have 7th Wave must be exterminated”.

The first episode of Mighty No. 9’s documentary is now online. You can give it a watch below.

We also have the size for Mighty No. 9 on the eShop. The digital version will require 2,954MB of free space.

Lastly, Mighty No. 9 is getting a soundtrack in Japan on July 5 for 4,000 yen. 69 tracks will be included, spread across 2 CDs. A 28 page booklet will also be included. Head past the break for the full soundtrack.
