Keiji Inafune's latest game, Mighty No. 9
definitely has a lot of hype following it. The internet video game community has seemingly appointed it as the successor of Mega Man
, which I feel is a bit premature, and Inafune has been put on a pedestal for giving us a Mega Man
game when Capcom has seemingly shunned him. While I hope that Mighty No. 9
does well enough to hopefully shake Capcom up a little and remind them that the Blue Bomber is a profitable franchise, there's voices in my head that are preventing me from jumping on the same hype train that everybody else is on.
4- Capcom could still shove their nose into this
I don't think this is exactly a bad thing to list for why I'm not excited yet. Obviously the idea of a new Capcom-free Mega Man
is appealing, but I'd rather see some of the game before getting sky high with hype levels for it. I'd rather see the game in action before I say that Mega Man's spirit lives on. By the way, am I the only one who thinks it's a little premature to pass the torch from Mega Man to Beck?
Plus given my two previous reservations about Mighty No. 9
listed above, just seeing the game in action will help alleviate those two earlier fears that are holding me back. After that, I'll probably be there on the hype train just like everyone else because I fucking love Mega Man
games and consider Mega Man X
the best designed video game in history.
So yes, I still have reservations about Mighty No. 9
. I really do hope I'm wrong, but there's enough evidence on the table for me to look at this game and be a tad pessimistic.
