Uh, thanks but no thanks
A few Mighty No. 9 updates to talk about today. First, all launch-window versions of the game will come with the Retro Hero DLC, which gives protagonist Beck a blocky, weirdly Minecraft-esque appearance and, good lord, a one...

Don't think that I've forgotten about Kaio: King of Pirates. I've been following its development pretty closely for years now, and I was excited at the prospect of it finally coming to light. Maybe it was delayed because...
That art style is really the plan eh?
Mighty No. 9's Keiji Inafune is ringing in the New Year with a look at a new stage for the game. It seems to have a castle-like feel to it, with red carpets and fancy chandeliers. According to the producer/director, the game...
What is the plan for this game?
Comcept has released its newest plans for Mighty No. 9 -- post-release DLC. The DLC goal is $190,000 in additional funding, and involves a new rival boss character for Beck named Ray (a name that could be changed). Yep, ...

Capcom is beat to the punch yet again
When I saw the recent 3DS Streetpass puzzle featuring original sprite Mega Man in 3D, I immediately thought "Capcom should make a game like that!" Just like how I used to think Capcom should make a new 2D Mega Man for home co...

Beck and Call
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...
I think a lot of people would
Keiji Inafune and crew have yet to deliver Mighty No. 9 (it's still a long way away), but its massive Mega Man fanbase has jumped ship, and is already wanting multiple Mighty games.
Last weekend at SGC 2014, fans a...
Also, new costumes
I actually played a bunch of the Soul Sacrifice demo, but never ended up diving into the full thing. Soul Sacrifice Delta has been updated with a new encounter and some whacked out threads (definitely some of the weirder...

Reminder that it's also digital only
I was never able to really get into Soul Sacrifice when I played it around this time last year, which probably had something to do with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate still getting plenty of attention from me at that point in tim...
Keiji Inafune's other not Mega Man game is Azure Striker: Gunvolt. Its main character, Gunvolt, was viciously censored for the planned Western release, as you can see below. And by viciously censored I mean his designed was c...
One of my most anticipated 3DS games of the year
Keiji Inafune and his superstar development collective are hard at work with creating Mighty No. 9 for every platform under the sun -- but who knows when it's actually coming out. As confirmed to us at BitSummit 2014, we...

Also, see the Mighty No. 9 skin in action
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z looks disgusting; over-the-top; insane; and unabashedly offensive, yet I still can't wait to give it a go. The latest trailer above sheds some light on a few of the game's more interesting costumes, and let's just say the school girl outfit is not quite what one would expect.
Will you be picking up Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z when it drops this March?
Still coming for the 3DS
Hey remember in 2011 when we told you that Inafune's adorable pirate game KAIO: King of Pirates was coming in 2012? Well he heard that you like delays, so he put a delay in his delay, and now it's dropping in 2014 -...
