Inafune Kickstarts spiritual successor to Mega Man, No. 9

YES! YES! YES!

Recommended Videos

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!
