Mighty No. 9

Mighty No. 9 is a 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 and fresh mechanics.

Here's a fun look at 2 games Mighty No. 9 and 20XX

I used to love the Mega Man games, so it was fun seeing both of these *not* Mega Man games side by side and discussed.

Recently Mighty No. 9 launched to very mixed reviews. Some Kickstarter backers didn't get the correct game codes for the platforms they pledged to and many more experienced some unfortunate game glitches at launch. In one of his latest videos, Cygnus Destroyer runs Mighty No. 9 through the Innocent and Proven Guilty courtroom and I found his verdict fair. As a fan of the original Mega Man series I had high hopes for Mighty No. 9 but I had mixed feelings about picking it up until I saw this video.

Comcept is continuing to release new Mighty No. 9 gameplay footage and this time it features some new stages and boss battles. With each video drop I get a bit more interested and it keeps looking more and more like it might very well be the best new Mega Man game without actually technically being a Mega Man game.

Keiji Inafune's Mighty No. 9 is deep in development after a very successful Kickstarter but they took some time during GDC to release a new gameplay video. From the creator of Mega Man, the game seems very similar but give the game a modern edge. I really love the idea of a new fresh take at Mega Man but wasn't in love with all the art choices they showcased. After seeing Mighty No. 9 in action I am convinced the game will be good.

Mighty No. 9 will launch April of 2015 on Linux, Mac, Windows, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, Vita and 3DS.

"Filmed before the launch of the Kickstarter and leading up to its release, Keiji Inafune talks openly about his past and hopes for the future, as well as introducing us to the crack team of veteran developers assembled for Mighty No. 9."

So there was this little Kickstarter that launched a little less than a month ago. Apparently Keiji Inafune had an idea for a new game that bears a striking resemblance to Mega Man. Yeah, well apparently they raised 2.6 million dollars and as part of that they promised to release a documentary covering the entire process. Since the game has been such a smashing success they are releasing the documentary in bits, to everyone. This... Read All
