'Cause why not?
Classic Japanese side-scrolling action, evolved and transformed by Keiji Inafune, an all-star team of veteran Mega Man devs...and YOU!
Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game that takes the best 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!
Quotes taken from the
Earlier this week, Mega Man creator Keji Inafune announced a new platformer , one that he even says is highly inspired by Mega Man. Mighty No. 9 is the first game developed by Inafune's company, Comcept. A Kickstarter page for the game was created, and it has already passed its goal. The game is currently slated for release for PC, Mac, and Linux sometime in 2015 and has both a single player and co-op mode!. Backers are given such perks as having their names put in the credits, being allowed to design enemies, and (at $10000) have dinner with Inafune.
The game has been fully funded, with all stretch goals reached, and over $4,000,000 raised! Congratulations Comcept!
What do you think about this project? What do you think about fans being allowed to help out? Do you think Capcom will have a problem with this game being so similar to Mega Man?
Game coming to PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, 360, PS4, XBOne, Wii U, 3DS, and PSVITA! So, pretty much any current gen/next gen console out there.
EDIT: Game fully funded, with over $4,000,000 raised!
