Mighty Gunvolt is a free download if you buy Azure Striker
by Chris Carter

Developer Inti Creates has just sent over some great news -- anyone who downloads Azure Striker Gunvolt for the first three months of its eShop release will get Mighty Gunvolt for free. The latter is an 8-bit style retro platformer that stars characters from Azure Striker, Mighty No. 9, and GalGun, and is a completely separate project that takes place over five levels.

After downloading Striker you'll receive a message with a download code for Mighty -- that's all you have to do. Stay tuned for full coverage of both Azure Striker Gunvolt and Mighty Gunvolt next week.

Microsoft worked with Blizzard to get Diablo III to 1080p on Xbox One
