Mighty No. 9's Latest Trailer Is A Bit Underwhelming

“Do you like awesome things that are awesome?” asks the latest trailer for Mighty No. 9 [official site] – the incoming 2D Mega Man-a-like from Comcept, Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune’s new studio – before showing off a sequence of largely underwhelming visuals and grating dad-voiced narration. It then suggests we: “make bad guys cry like an anime fan on prom night.” A month before release, I was honestly hoping for something a bit more substantial.

To recap: Mighty No. 9 raked in a staggering $3,845,170 (around £2.6 million) in Kickstarter cash a few years back, and has since been delayed on a few occasions. With the release one month away, I was holding out for a trailer that showcased where the game’s at now. Yet the latest instead seems more interested in telling, not showing. See for yourself:

That’s not my idea of humour, and I find the constant gabber of the narrator throughout distracting and irritating. Am I perhaps being overly-critical, though? What do you guys think? For the record, I loved the classic NES interpretations of Mega Man and as such would like to see Mighty No. 9 succeed. Frustratingly, beyond the painful jokes, I thought some of the fast-paced, duck-and-dive platforming on show there looked pretty good.

A strange trailer indeed. Fingers crossed Mighty No. 9 is a bit more entertaining when it releases on Windows, Mac and Linux on June 21 in North America and Asia, and on June 24 elsewhere.
