Dragon Marked for Death (Inti Creates) announced for the Nintendo Switch

Inti Creates are strong supporters of the Nintendo Switch, and from the very beginning: Blaster Master Zero was released on Day 1 in Japan (and the following week in Europe and North America). A few weeks later, they released Mighty Gunvolt Burst, a sequel to Mighty Gunvolt. And let’s not forget the DLC released for both games!

And it’s far from over, as Inti Creates still have Nintendo Switch games up their sleeve it seems! Yesterday, during the Nindies Summer Showcase, they revealed Dragon Marked for Death, a 2D side-scrolling action RPG, which can be played in online or local multiplayer with up to 4 players. The developers promise refreshing, “feel-good” level design, based around intuitive 2D-action-based gameplay. Sounds promising!

Now, you’re probably wondering who’s working on this game, and the answer is… lots of pretty cool people, that fans of the Mega Man series should have no trouble recognising:
