YES! YES! YES!


For all of you who wanted Capcom to do Mega Man justice with a brand new HD style game, prepare to have your prayers answered by the big mega gaming man himself, Keiji Inafune, with some help by his company comcept, Inti Creates, and a whole mess of other former Mega Man devs. It's called Mighty No. 9, and it literally looks like a true Mega Man game from top to bottom.

The protagonist is named Beck, and he's the ninth robot in a line of ones [eight robot masters] who were infected by a virus [Mavericks]. He'll run through six stages [Mega Man 1], and copy abilities from his fallen foes with support from his female friend [Roll], as he fights various lesser enemies throughout the landscape, one of which is themed after a construction object [Metools]. Reading through the Kickstarter, fans of the Blue Bomber will spot even more references, which has me even more giddy to see it in action.

Right now the game is slated for the PC platform (with gamepad support) by way of Steam and a few other avenues, but stretch goals include Mac, Linux, and consoles.

As a Mega Man fan, I can't express how excited I am for this!

Mighty No. 9's beta just got a new level

Some time ago the Mighty No. 9 beta hit Steam. It consisted of one level, and the developers weren't sure if they were going to add anything more to it. Well that day has come, so boot up your game and you'll find yet a...more

Mighty No. 9 feels great, but the core concepts take some getting used to

Mighty No. 9 is probably one of the most anticipated games of 2015. After a massive Kickstarter, creator Inafune and developers Comcept and Inti Creates have kicked off a long line of products to hype it up, including Mi...more

New Mighty No. 9 video shows off transformation powers, Call gameplay

Developer Comcept has done a great job of keeping its fans updated on the Mighty No. 9 project -- and for some fans, overly so. Although this new video has a fair amount of recycled footage at the start and the end, the midd...more

This new footage for Mighty No. 9 is looking great

Spring 2015 seems eons away. That's probably because I want to get my hands on the final version of Mighty No. 9 as soon as possible, and this new trailer isn't helping. It shows off some new manuevers, including the st...more

Mega Man composer Manami Matsumae answers Mighty No. 9 backer questions

For Mega Man fans, the name Manami Matsumae is instantly recognizable. Although she's only worked on a few games (Mega Man 1, Mega Man 2's sound effects, and Mega Man 10), her mark on the series is memorable, and her service...more

More alpha footage of Mega Ma--I Mean Mighty No. 9: It's great

I've kept up cold indifference towards Mega Man 9 -- I mean Mighty No. 9 -- since its announcement and Kickstarter success. With the recent alpha footage coming out, though, I'm sold. Look how gorgeous those animations are. Look how smooth. Mega Man is dead. Long live Mighty No. 9. Capcom, you need to get right. The last six years have not been good compared to the six prior.more

Wow, a Humble Indie Bundle I'm going to buy

It's been some time since I've last gone in on a Humble Indie Bundle. These days, if a game is around long enough to wind up packaged at a discounted rate, it's already made its way into my library, or I'm just not interested...more

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more

SteamWorld Heist's first screenshot leaves me wondering

While I tend to get annoyed when studios put out a lone screenshot, I can tolerate the practice depending on the circumstances. Image & Form doesn't have much in the way of assets for SteamWorld Heist, its turn-based foll...more
