Inti Creates says Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 will have a "never-before-seen" gameplay style, teases future Switch support

Exciting things to come from Inti Creates

Inti Creates revealed Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 for Switch back in June, and the team is working hard to make this installment the best yet. In an interview with NintendoEverything, Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu teased some exciting gameplay innovations for this entry in the franchise.

Director Yoshihisa Tsuda and Action Supervisor Keiji Inafune are working together to create a game with fresh and exciting action. They are planning on introducing a “never-before-seen” gameplay style with the new character, Kirin, so please look forward to her reveal. If it turns out that the action is not so “never-before-seen,” well, that just means that the action was already excellent and they will work to make Gunvolt 3 the optimal game for that action. I have faith they will create a game that feels amazing to play.

Outside of that title, does Inti Creates have anything new in the works for Switch? While the company wasn't willing to say directly, Inti Creates producer Matt Papa clearly hinted at some more Switch love down the road.

We are in the middle of getting preparations done for a number of different projects. We are not a gigantic studio, so that means our resources are limited and it may be quite a while before some of these projects are revealed to the public, but I can assure that the gears are always turning here at Inti Creates and our creators are always coming up with new ideas. As far as the Nintendo Switch goes, we’ve been developing games that are built to run on Nintendo hardware since as far back as the Game Boy Advance era. I think Nintendo users make up the biggest group of people that know about Inti Creates and our IPs, so make no mistake that we will continue to release games on Nintendo hardware going forward.

Inti Creates says Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 took 5 and a half months to make, reveals cut character ideas

Behind the scenes of the sequel

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 is the follow-up to Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, an 8-bit spin-off to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The first Curse of the Moon was successful enough to pave the way for a sequel, and apparently it didn't take the team much time at all to put it together. In an interview with NintendoEverything, Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu discussed development time.

Once proceeds from CotM1 exceeded the cost of providing Kickstarter backers with codes for the game, ArtPlay began receiving proper royalty payments from sales of the game. This was what made the sequel possible. I can’t speak to the exact dates, but until that time came, we had been brainstorming ideas for CotM2. Once we were able to officially form the development team, it took about 5 and a half months from the start of development to release.

While Curse of the Moon 2 expands the original game in just about every area, not everything made the cut. Turns out the team had some other character ideas as well. Curse of the Moon series director Hiroki Miyazawa shared what those characters were.

A few designs we considered were a ninja, thief, and paladin. Some elements of their designs still exist in the game: Robert got the wall jump from the ninja and thief, and Hachi got the paladin’s defensive ability. There was also a weird design of a paladin with an enormous shield who was otherwise completely naked…
