Try Out 30 Minutes Of Mighty No. 9 Dev’s ReCore

Not so sure about ReCore [official site]? Did Mighty No. 9 leave you feeling a litle unsure about the whole Comcept and Keiji Inafune thing? No one could blame you. Microsoft seeks to rectify any uncertainty you might have about the action platformer with the introduction of a 30-minute demo that's up for grabs on Windows 10. Or at least get your attention if you…

Feature: Flop Man?

Mighty No. 9 review

The problem for most new studios is making anyone pay attention. Comcept, founded by ex-Capcom developer Keiji Inafune, has had no such issues - and the studio's kickstarter for Mighty No. 9 [official site], a spiritual heir to the Mega Man series Inafune co-created and stewarded through its greatest years, blasted past expectations. Comcept raised just under $4 million to make this game in 2013…

Comcept & Armature’s ReCore Coming In September

Keiji Inafune and his new studio Comcept drew squillions of dollars in crowdfunding for megamanner Mighty No. 9 but ooh I'm digging the look of their other game way more. ReCore [official site], a collaboration between Comcept and Armature Studio, is an action-adventure doodad about a lone human in an alien desert who befriends robot animals and duffs up other robots. E3 has brought a…

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…

Mighty No. 9 Mega-Manning Up In June

Mighty No 9 [official site] has a new release date, one that might actually stick: June 21st in North America and Asia, and the 24th elsewhere. Mighty No. 9, to refresh your memory so tired from all these things we're expected to internalise in this day and age, is a new Mega Man-ish 2D shooty platformer from Comcept, the studio founded by Mega Man co-creator…

Mega Late, Man: Mighty No. 9 Delayed Again

Mega Man 'em up Mighty No. 9 [official site] was due to launch in two weeks, but the Man spiritual successor from creator Keiji Inafune has ended up delayed once again. This time, wonky multiplayer is to blame. It's now expected in spring, which could put it a year behind the April 2015 launch pitched when it was on Kickstarter. Hey, making games is tricky,…

Comcept’s ReCore Coming To Windows 10 Too

Keija Inafune and his studio Comcept are working away on their own Mega Man 'em up Mighty No. 9, we've mentioned plenty, but so far we've overlooked their action-adventure-ish sort of a mystery robot-friend game... thing ReCore [official site]. That's because, until today, it had only been lined up for an Xbox One release. Publishers Microsoft have quietly revealed that it's coming to PC too,…

Mighty No. 9 Mega-Busting Into February 2016

Every time I see the name Mighty No. 9 [official site], something in me sees it as Wonderful 101 and my heart skips a beat. But hey, a new Mega Man-ish game from the co-creator of the mega-busting robot is still a pretty exciting idea - enough for folks to bung it $3,845,170 on Kickstarter. When will we found out how the reality rises to…

Mighty No 9 Legends: Comcept Crowdfunding Red Ash

With Mighty No. 9 almost out (it's due in September), developers Comcept have turned to Kickstarter again to crowdfund another Mega Man 'em up. This time, they're thinking along the lines of open-world action-RPG Mega Man Legends. They're rounded up a few Mega Man Legends folks and launched a Kickstarter seeking $800,000 (£515k) to make Red Ash [official site]. The pitch is pretty barebones, with…

Retronaut: Another Mighty No. 9 Gameplay Trailer

Keiji Inafune's decision to create Mighty No. 9 [official site], presumably by chanting "Mega Man" into an old mirror until it was called into existence like some sort of eternal Gilgamesh, suggests the kind of industry power I too hope to one day yield. "What year is this?" I'd bellow to my staff. "It's 2015, Ma'am," they squeak and shudder. Then, as if planned ahead of…

Release Date Man: Mighty No. 9 Due In September

Being fairly clueless about console platformers for most of my life, I had been awfully surprised to discover Capcom made a long series of So Solid Crew platformers. (That's a joke about PC isolationism and early noughties English pop culture. You don't get gags that rich every day.) After Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom, he, well, decided to make more Mega Man, crowdfunding…

Rockman, Paperman, Shotgunman: Mighty No 9 Beta

Mighty No. 9 is Mega Man and Mega Man is Rockman. I don't know if it's better to be mighty or to be mega, but I do know that when it comes to platformers, it's generally better to be Shotgunman than Rockman. It's hard to jump if you're a geological anomaly and there tend to be plenty of things to kill between the platforms and…

Mega Bucks: Extra Crowdfunding For A Mightier No. 9

Mighty No. 9 is looking mighty fine, as we've established previously. It's Mega Man in all but name, with original creator Keiji Infafune at the helm, boss fights, power-stealing and a (nearly) spot-on visual style. Now, despite raising $3.8m on Kickstarter at the tail-end of 2013, Comcept have called to the crowd once again, seeking extra cash.

Jings! Mighty No. 9 Is More Than Kickstarted

Just like that time when I was a bairn and predicted the internet by placing our house phone on top of my Etch-A-Sketch (the Etch-A-Sketch had a scribble of a cat on it), I also predicted that Mighty No. 9 would easily achieve its Kickstarter goal. The side-scrolling action platform from Keiji Inafune, the creator of Mega Man, launched a hunt for crowd-funds just over…
