I remain skeptical of Comcept's second crowdfunding campaign, but I've finally found a video that makes me interested in Keiji Inafune's definitely-not-mega Mighty No. 9. Stick around for two minutes of dashing, shooting, boss battles, a few of hero Beck's transformations and more.


Mighty No. 9 launches new crowdfunding campaign for English voice acting

Keiji Inafune's Mega Man follow-up Mighty No. 9 was one of the most successful videogame Kickstarters ever, pulling in $3.85 million last year, more than four times its original goal. Combined with money earned through a separate PayPal campaign, the total funding amount broke $4 million, enough to nail every stretch goal the Comcept development team could cook up. But full English voice acting wasn't included among those goals, and so now a new crowdfunding campaign has been launched seeking another $100,000 to get it in there.

The first proper bout of footage for Keiji Inafune's Mighty No. 9 shows that, yes, it looks a lot like a certain Capcom series, but let's put the obvious comparisons to Dino Crisis aside for a moment and focus on the Mega Man creator's latest game. After a wildly successful Kickstarter last year - people really like to put their money behind familiar concepts, huh? - we've been afforded our first non-prototypey glimpse of the platformer in action, and while it's a video that holds few surprises, Mighty No. 9 does look like the sort of safe, largely unambitious game I might enjoy on a rainy day.

When we last saw Mega Man designer Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9, it had launched a Kickstarter campaign and been fully funded before we could write the words down. In the last 31 days, the crowdfunding campaign continued its breakneck pace until it just passed the $4 million mark. Mighty No. 9 has met all of its stretch goals and is now in production for an estimated April 2015 release.

Calm down, guys! Mega Man designer Keiji Inafune only pushed out the Kickstarter for Mega Man Mighty No. 9 this last weekend, and already the project has raised over $1.25 million, smashing the $900,000 target. To play catch up: Mega Man Mighty No. 9 is a 2D side-scrolling action platformer featuring a little robot guy whose body can reconfigure to take on new skills and abilities, and who must destroy other, evil boss robots.
