The internet exploded into a frenzy when news broke that Mega Man creator, Keiji Inafune, was working on a new project; Mighty No. 9. This highly anticipated release is shaping up to be to the classic Mega Man game fans have been waiting for and it’s already gotten a ton of support.
“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 being developed with the fans in mind. While this isn’t the full-on Mega Man game we’ve been waiting for, it’s the next best thing. It promises to tap into the more classic mechanics of the Mega Man franchise and deliver that great action/platforming experience we know and love with a touch of modern flare. The development team working on the game is incredibly talented and very experienced.
The Kickstarter page for Mighty No. 9 has only been running for a few days and it’s already $400,000 past it’s $900,000 goal. This project is currently set to release on PC only, but there are several stretch goals that will bring it to other platforms. If the funding reaches $2,500,000, we will see this title on PS3, 360, and Wii U.
I will undoubtedly be backing this project and I would highly recommend you do the same. This might be the closest thing we get to a new Mega Man for a long time and I would love to slide that sexy disc in my Xbox 360.
