Mega Man Creator Returns With Mighty No. 9 


I feel like Keiji Inafune is winking at us all. The Mega Man creator has turned to Kickstarter to fund a new PC game, a "classic Japanese side-scrolling action" game called Mighty No. 9 that's not Mega Man, *wink*. According to the pitch: "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!"

It's one of those Kickstarters where hitting the F5 makes the number jump and jump and jump. By the time you read this it will probably be funded, and all we have to consider is how high it can reach. It's interesting that the PC is the lead platform for this, because it's not a game that's had may PC iterations. In fact, the stretch goals mean there will be Mac and Linux (clearly driven by Steam) versions before there are PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo iterations. What a strange, topsy-turvy world we now live in.
