Mighty Gunvolt Burst
Top Critic Average
I can see myself picking up Mighty Gunvolt Burst every now and then, especially since it's so easy to do on the Switch. If Inti Creates goes the way of DLC or a full sequel where the universes are flipped, I'm already in. They clearly still have it while Capcom and Comcept struggle to get a firm hold on the genre.
A game that could have been much better with a little more time/resources on its development, but is not enought to get us satisfied.

Old skool gameplay with some new style twists, Mighty Gunvolt Burst is a more accessible slice of nostalgia style gaming.
Mighty Gunvolt Burst is everything that Mighty No. 9 should've been last year. Its excellent retro style, deep customization features, and rewarding progression system pave the way for a fast-paced, fulfilling experience.
Mighty Gunvolt Burst is exactly what I wanted it to be. A proper clone of a genre I still love to this day, with enough new to make it feel modern. The platforming is tight, the challenge is solid, and everything just feels good. I grew up loving these games, and while I am not quite as skilled as I used to be, I still enjoy the challenge they deliver.
Might Gunvolt Burst builds on its predecessor and easily overcomes it, thanks to its use of creative and fun gameplay mechanics, a rich visual environment and an overall quality production that will certainly appeal to fans of retro-looking action games.

Mighty Gunvolt Burst is something that you'll want to show your friends who quit playing games in the 90's or youngsters who haven't experienced a true retro style game. In a generation that pushes hardware to limits, Inti Creates continues to deliver these five – six hour long experiences that push our 2D action platforming skills to the test. Now if only we can get Beck in a proper Azure Striker Gunvolt game.
All told, Mighty Gunvolt Burst improves on the original Mighty Gunvolt in just about every conceivable way, and stands as a worthy successor to the classic Mega Man series. If ever a modern game were worthy of being called Mega Man 11, this would be it; it's perfectly transplanted that classic run ‘n' gun gameplay while adding a wealth of new additions and elements to keep you engaged for a long time. Though these new elements are a little rough around the edges, they nonetheless add a lot of value to the package and the flexible nature of the game allows you to completely ignore them if you so choose. We certainly give Mighty Gunvolt Burst a strong recommendation; for anyone looking for a meaty and high-quality retro title, look no further than this.
Mighty Gunvolt Burst gives the player the option to play as both Beck, the star of Mighty No.9, in addition to Azure Striker Gunvolt.Mighty Gunvolt Burst is a great throwback and homage to the classic run and gun platformers that the original Nintendo was known for.
