Inti Creates Making Card-en-Ciel Mega Man Battle Network-like

Inti Creates revealed the developer’s next game will be Card-en-Ciel, and it is set to release in October 2024. The game is described as a “roguelite, card-battling RPG” and also looks to contain similar positioning and strategic mechanics like the Mega Man Battle Network series.

Battles will take place on two 3×3 grids, as players will use cards based on both in-game franchises and Inti Creates properties. These cards are voiced. Some contain Muse characters that provide extra bonuses if you can fulfill conditions and play unique music. Battles take place within dungeons, where defeating enemies earns you upgrades to your card deck. This will, in turn, help you to defeat the boss encounter and clear the dungeon. However, completing a dungeon faster nets a higher score so players will have to consider the trade off between gaining power and getting a faster completion.

Back in April, 2024, Inti Creates announced and released PuzzMix, a puzzle game spin-off from the Azure Striker Gunvolt series. The series also received a rhythm game spin-off that was announced back in September, 2024.

Inti Creates will release Card-en-Ciel on October 24, 2024, for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
