Although it has been one of the most anticipated Nintendo 3DS eShop releases for several months, not much detail has been revealed about Inti Creates’ Mega Man-inspired Mighty No. 9.
That finally changed recently when Kenji Inafune and Inti Creates showed off Mighty No. 9 PAX 2014; you can check out over two minutes of stunning gameplay footage below:
You can definitely see the Mega Man
inspiration and some of the game’s unique mechanics, like ledge-hanging and air-dashing. Mighty No. 9
looks like one of the most visually-striking Nintendo 3DS eShop titles to date – I can’t wait to see it in 3D.
It’s too bad that the game will not be released by the end of the year – especially when the spin-off title Azure Striker Gunvolt was revealed after and launched before Mighty No. 9. Regardless it gives 3DS owners (as well as PC, 360, XB1, PS3, PS4, PS Vita & Wii U) something very cool to look forward to after the holiday season.
The Wii U title NES Remix is headed to the Nintendo 3DS eShop and retailers on December 5, in the form of Ultimate NES Remix.
Like the Wii U version, Ultimate NES Remix is based on quick-fire challenges from 16 different NES classics, such as Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros.
The 3DS version will feature online leaderboards as well as a Championship Mode, and the price is set at $29.99 for both the retail and eShop download versions.
Inti Creates’ Azure Striker Gunvolt launches today on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America. Designed alongside Mega Man creator Kenji Inafune, this side-scrolling action/platforming game offers flashy, fast-paced gameplay – think Mega Man X combined with the stylish combo system from Devil May Cry.
AZG looks to be one of the most notable downloadable 3DS titles of the year; the first reviews appear to be decidedly positive. Links, quotes and scores from various sites like NWR, IGN & Destructoid can be found after the break. Continue reading
Inti Creates’ Azure Striker Gunvolt will be available tomorrow (August 29) on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America. Along with Shovel Knight (released earlier this year) and Inti Creates’ next title, MIghty No. 9, Azure Striker Gunvolt has been one of my most-anticipated eShop games of 2014. That being said, Mighty No. 9 isn’t coming until next year – so my focus has shifted quite a bit to this game instead. Continue reading
In case you haven’t heard about it, one of the hottest upcoming titles on the Nintendo 3DS eShop is Azure Striker Gunvolt, Inti Creates’ flashy, action-packed side-scroller. It certainly helps that one of the game’s lead designers is none other than Kenji Inafune (Mega Man), and the gameplay is clearly reminiscent of the classic series.
Anyway, those who download Azure Striker Gunvolt will also get a free 8-bit crossover game called Mighty Gunvolt, which features characters from both Azure Striker and Inti’s next game, Mighty No. 9.
Keep reading after the break for details, video footage, and an interview between Inafune and Inti Creates.

Square-Enix’s 3DS-exclusive role-playing game, Bravely Default, has officially sold more than one million units worldwide since its initial launch in October 2012.
These sales figures include units sold via eShop; I find it particularly interesting to point out that Japanese sales account for only 40% of the total units so far.
This means over 600,000 copies have been purchased elsewhere; clearly it was the right move when Square-Enix finally decided to localize the game for multiple regions.
The JRPG never made its way to America until earlier this year, but has nonetheless been a hit with 3DS owners and RPG fans. In fact, the game sold over 200,000 units in the first few weeks after it launched.
Stay tuned for our retrospective review of Bravely Default – the game did earn a spot (#10) on our Top 10 Nintendo 3DS Games list.
Developer Renegade Kid – known best for NDS, 3DS & eShop games like Mutant Mudds, Dementium: The Ward, Moon Chronicles and the upcoming Treasurenauts – will be revealing its next Nintendo 3DS-exclusive title next weekend via GoNintendo.com.
The announcement will be posted on the daily “End Of The Day” column on GoNintendo, which should be live sometime Sunday night / Monday morning (August 3 / August 4) depending on your time zone.
Renegade Kid also promises frequent updates about the new game through GoNintendo following its reveal.
Consider me excited; I loved Mutant Mudds and am looking forward to Treasurenauts, but I am still pulling for Cult County as well.
Stay tuned for details about the Renegade Kid reveal early next week.
Capcom’s Mighty No. 9 for the eShop looks to be a brand-new title that fans of Mega Man will fall in love with.
New footage of the game shows the transformations that Beck can do in the game. Check out the video below:
Let me be clear: I am more excited about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games for 3DS and Wii U than…any other video game, quite frankly.
On the other hand, as much time as I have spent daydreaming about playing the game, I have also come to terms with a few thoughts and concerns regarding the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros.
