— Inti Creates ? PAX West #6816 (@IntiCreatesEN) August 23, 2019
This new action platformer, announced back in May, features anti-hero Copen as the main character. Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX looks like more of the frenetic action the series is known for, though it seems Inti Creates is trying to play up the community angle more this time. They’re offering “tricked-out” score cards post-mission to make them enticing for sharing top scores on social media. The digital version of the game will cost $14.99 at launch.
Will you be downloading Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX digitally, splurging for a Limited Run Games physical copy, or skipping the game altogether? Honestly, I’m in that last category; the series isn’t quite enough like Mega Man to entice me. But Inti Creates fulfills an important niche in gaming, and I’m glad they’re around to provide us their unique flavor.
