If Inti Creates are good at anything, it’s pumping out DLC. Their classic side-scrolling action games are almost always met with a variety of post-launch additions in the form of new missions, characters, and more. Just last month, Blaster Master Zero 2 received a new playable character in the form of Copen, the protagonist of Mega Man X-inspired action platformer Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX.
Now, the tables have turned, and it’s Copen and gang whose game will receive some new downloadable content. A new mission, song, and costume are available for Gunvolt Chronicles, and they’re all free until the end of December.
The new Extra Mission available for download is titled “vs ???”, but anyone who’s played the game will know that your opponent in this battle is none other than Blade, the mysterious swordsman constantly on your tail during the events of the main game. This is poised to be an incredibly tough boss battle, but beating it will supposedly net you a mysterious reward.
On top of a battle against Blade, Gunvolt Chronicles is also getting a new song added to the game, as well as a brand new costume for support character Lola to go along with it. You can enable the Costume Change feature for Lola to bust out her dazzling idol outfit in-game, and also hear her latest hit single “Raison d’être.”
Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX is available now on the Nintendo Switch.
