Mighty Gunvolt (マイティガンヴォルト Maiti Ganvoruto in Japan), also known as Gal*Gunvolt on Playstation consoles, is a platform video game developed by Inti Creates originally for the Nintendo 3DS platform in 2014 and the first game in the Mighty Gunvolt series. A PSN version was released in 2015. The game is a spin-off of Inti Creates' Azure Striker Gunvolt, additionally featuring characters from Gal*'Gun and Mighty No. 9. It was followed by a sequel, Mighty Gunvolt Burst.

A soundtrack was released in 2015.

GameplayEdit

The game follows the classic 8 Bit games similar to the first 6 Megaman games.

Using a simple engine, a platform game that you need to shoot your way through all the Stages (you can download new Stages after you complete the game). Each character has their own ability: Gunvolt can perform double jumps and use a chargeable lightning attack (similar to the first Azure Striker game). Ekoro can float while in mid-air without issues and can attract enemies and Beck can use tackles and/or slides to access new areas and destroy opponents (similar to the Mighty No. 9 game).

Opening Crawl Edit

Original Translated Opening Crawl Edit

In search of the next generation's Diva,

Sumeragi Productions, a big-name entertainment division,

had performed horrendous human experimentation,

under the guise an event known as

the "Cybernetic Muse Auditions".

Standing in opposition to their agenda,

was a young man by the name of

Gunvolt.

Sumeragi had dominated the city's key

facilities, one after another, until eventually

they reached the city's all-girls school.

The students had vanished from reality,

and they could no longer form pairs.

Thus, Gunvolt, along with Ekoro, angel-in-training,

had gone to face off against the source of it all...

DevelopmentEdit

The game was released on the Nintendo eShop on August 20, 2014 in Japan and April 2, 2015 in Europe. A port for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita was released in Japan on August 6, 2015. A version of the original Mighty Gunvolt has also been announced for Microsoft Windows, and will be available for free to purchasers of Azure Striker Gunvolt within the first month of its release on PC.

ReceptionEdit

Mighty Gunvolt received generally positive reviews, with critics commending it for recreating an 8-Bit form, though it did receive minor criticism for its short length and lack of difficulty.

TriviaEdit

  • The attacks from the bosses are loosely based on their original ones.
  • Ekoro's first appearance was in the game Gal*Gun.
  • Beck's first appearance was as the protagonist of the game Mighty No. 9.
  • Both games (Azure Striker Gunvolt and Mighty No. 9) were produced by Keiji Inafune, ex-Capcom lead artist on the Mega Man franchise.
  • Gunvolt has appeared with both of the other playable characters; him and Ekoro were the first two announced DLC characters in the game Blaster Master Zero, and then starred with Beck in Mighty Gunvolt Burst.
  • The Opening Intro Crawl and the ending text are grammatically incorrect on purpose to replicate bad 80's translations. The "original translated" one you see above, was translated from the original Japanese script by a fan translator.
  • Beck's animations are all based on Classic Mega Man's animations. His Dash action is the same as Classic's Slide as well Jump + Down.
  • The game includes music and characters from Gal*Gun Double Peace a year before its release.
  • The OST itself has some extra tracks not featured in the game.
