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).

Filmed by Area 5, the video was originally included as part of the quite expensive Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set and this is the first time it’s been made officially available to the public by Capcom itself.

Be sure not to be interrupted in the next hour or so and enjoy.

We’ve already told you how much we’re hyped and excited for Project X Zone, the latest mega collaboration among Capcom, Namco Bandai and SEGA.

Well, the epic crossover is already available in Japan since last year, and it will be released in US on June 25 and in Europe on July 5. So we still have few weeks to wait, but for now we can have just a taste of it. Indeed, yesterday Namco Bandai (the main publisher of the game) has released the demo for the game, called “A Lethal Surprise Demo” (or just Demo A).

Said so, if you’re curious on how those three companies have co-worked give it a try and download it for free from the Nintendo 3DS Store (but keep in mind that, like every demo for the 3DS, it has limited try).

By the way, thanks Namco Bandai for not bringing to Europe the limited edition…yep, thank you very much

Now enjoy some really chaotic screenshots.

A very cool t-shirt and official apologies from Capcom after cancelling the Blood Swimming Pool event

31 May

In the beginning we were utterly excited for the Blood Swimming Pool Event organized by Capcom to celebrate, with few lucky people, the launch of Resident Evil Revelations on home consoles.

Then, a few days later, we got a bit of disappointment by the cancelling of the event itself due to the tragic happenings of Woolwich, even because we achieved to get some tickets to the event.

But you know, Capcom is good, and the PR team decided to send to all the ticket-holders some free stuff, trying to beg our forgiveness. Today we got the parcel in our mail box, here’s what was inside.

Capcom cancels the Blood Swimming Pool event for the launch of Resident Evil Revelations

23 May

resident evil revelations

We were utterly excited for the upcoming Capcom‘s event of this weekend, a huge blood-filled swimming pool party to celebrate the launch of Resident Evil Revelations for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.

Unfortunately Capcom announced today that the bloody event has been cancelled due to the tragic events of yesterday, here in London.

Here’s the email send by a spokesman of Capcom to all the ticket owners (including us):

“Due to the tragic incident in Woolwich yesterday, Capcom has decided to cancel all dates of the Blood Swimming Pool event.

Thank you for your understanding.”

It’s a real shame, because the event sounded quite good, but we also understand the concerns of Capcom, hosting such gory party (they had promised floating body parts in the pool) right after a real-life tragedy. So, it’s kinda fine. We just hope the marketing section will find something else to serve some fandriven enjoyment.

If you don’t know what happened yesterday in Woolwich check the news, we’re just a video games blog.
