Inti Creates revealed that they will be celebrated the holidays with a special mode exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack.

During Christmas Eve and Christmas day (December 24 and 25) Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack will have a special “Christmas Mode” enabled for players to experience. To find the mode, the option will be available from the Azure Striker Gunvolt menu of the game, it will not appear in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 menu, or if you system date is set incorrectly.

This new mode will allow players to play through some winter and festive themed levels, all while presents are and snow fill the screen. Also, the stages will feel a bit slippier thanks to the icey platforms.

Additionally, players will find presents during the opening level and have access to six different boss battles. The goal is to collect all of the presents before the event is concluded.

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack includes both titles in the Azure Striker Gunvolt series, Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. Players will control the hero of the game, Gunvolt, in a 2D action game from the developers of Mega Man Zero.

The series features, a colorful cast of characters who take on hordes of enemies as Gunvolt completes missions and fights towards his goal. Up until now, the series has been on 3DS and PC, so it’d be interesting to see where the series goes from here with its console debut.
