A new Bloodstained development update video was shared yesterday as part of a post on the game’s Kickstarter. It starts off by showing the katana animation, and then highlights a “grid” map used to test different aspects of the project.

Here’s the full video:

And Koji Igarashi’s explanation of it:

Hi, everyone! This month we’d like to show you something that few people outside the development team ever get to see: A work-in-progress “grid” map that we’re using to test stage size, scrolling mechanics, enemy placement, and more. I’ve provided some narration to make it easier to see where we’re making progress.

We’re also revealing the katana animation. To provide our animators a reference for the motion, the team filmed me swinging an umbrella. Days after the video shoot I still had some muscle pain, but let’s please keep that between us…

You can find the full Kickstarter update here.

Azure Striker Gunvolt has reached its latest sales milestone. Today, developer Inti Creates announced that the 3DS version has surpassed 150,000 downloads worldwide.

Azure Striker Gunvolt topped 140,000 downloads towards the end of January. This new high point likely stemmed from the game’s recent sale.


Were you not entirely satisfied with Azure Striker Gunvolt’s English translation? If so, you may be pleased to hear that 8-4, who localized the first game and is in charge of the sequel, is handling things a bit differently the second time around.

Inti Creates president Takuya Aizu told Skybane the following regarding Azure Striker Gunvolt 2’s translation:

“We are working with 8-4 again on the translation, but as you may know, we got a lot of feedback from the first game in regards to what people thought of its English translation. The team at 8-4 is very much aware of that feedback, so the translation for Gunvolt 2 may vary a little bit from what you saw with the first game. We have the utmost faith in 8-4’s abilities, and have no doubts in our minds that they will produce a fabulous translation.”

Aizu also confirmed that Japanese voices will be included in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. Meanwhile, Inti Creates is still planning on bringing the first game’s Steam update to 3DS which adds Japanese voices and a re-translation.

Take a look at the latest Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 concept art above. It gives us another look at Gunvolt’s new design.


Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 was featured during the latest Nintendo, and Inti Creates also brought out the first direct-feed trailer. The company additionally followed up by providing new details about the game with some story and character details. Head past the break for all of the information.

During MAGFest today, Keiji Inafune and Inti Creates hosted a panel. Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 was featured during the event and we finally received an update as to what’s happening with the project.

First, it’s been revealed that Gunvolt will have a new design in the game. Inti Creates redid all of the character sprites in order to achieve this. Also teased was “a whole lot of stuff” that fans have yet to see. The team is spending a ton of time to create “the best high-quality game they possibly can.” Unfortunately, there’s still no word on a release date, but Inti Creates CEO said the developers are “working very hard to be able to get you guys the sequel to Azure Striker Gunvolt as soon as we can.”

Lastly, and most significantly, the first gameplay trailer for Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. We have it the off-screen video below.

Inti Creates has announced yet another sales milestone for Azure Striker Gunvolt. Today, the company confirmed that the game surpassed 140,000 downloads worldwide.

It was previously confirmed last September that Azure Striker Gunvolt had achieved 130,000 downloads.

The news was celebrated with another special art piece. As usual, we’ve attached it above.

After its phenomenal success on Kickstarter, Mighty No. 9 has had a somewhat troubled development period, with multiple delays and lukewarm receptions to its gameplay. Today, an e-mail was sent to backers of the project from Keiji Inafune himself, informing them that the game would not be ready in time for its targeted release date of in February. Inafune cites bugs in the game’s network / online as the reason for the delay. The new release date is, for the moment, set as “Spring 2016”.

Here’s Inafune’s statement in full:

To the fans eagerly awaiting the release of Mighty No. 9,

Unfortunately, we have an announcement that will be very disappointing to all of you. In preparation for the February release of Mighty No. 9 we have been working hard with our partners to resolve any network issues and porting work necessary to publish Mighty No. 9 on the various platforms. However, the issues relating to the network modes were more critical than expected, and it has become apparent that we will need to delay the game from its February 9th release date. We have been working up until the very last moment to resolve these issues in order to make the February release, but it has become clear that we no longer have enough time to fix the issues and have everything prepared for release.

A new video for Mighty No. 9 shows off the game’s online races by having members of the team battle it out. Check out the first part below.


Several new screenshots have come in for Mighty No. 9. You can take a look at the latest images below.
