Mighty No. 9 is the new project from the creator of Mega Man

4 Sep

Mighty No. 9Annoyed by the fact that Capcom let the Mega Man franchise die? Don’t worry folks because if we’re lucky enough Keiji Inafune himself is gonna give us a new game, that indeed is the spiritual successor to Mega Man. The game is called Mighty No. 9 and is currently under development at Comcept, former Head of R&D at Capcom Keiji Inafune’s new studio, and it’s seeking your help on Kickstarter.

Wondering what the game is about? Here’s the description from the Kickstarter prokect:

  • Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game that takes thebest aspects of the 8- and 16-bit era classics you know and love, and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh and amazing!

  • You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by a mysterious computer virus that has caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way through six stages (or more, via stretch goals) you can tackle in any order you choose, using weapons and abilities stolen from your enemies to take down your fellow Mighty Number robots and confront the final evil that threatens the planet!

The initial goal for the project was $900k, but now just three days have passed and the amount of funds reached so far is an astonishing $1.5m! This is huge success opened the road for a console release and for other great stuff! Let’s see what’s next. Stay tuned (even if the release date is set for Spring 2015).
