Since we can’t call him ‘Blue Bomber,’ how about ‘Mighty Mauler’?
Is anyone else playing and replaying the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter video and jamming out to the theme song? Because that is totally what I’m doing. It’s so great to hear Mega Man 1 composer Manami Matsumae hard at work again, bringing a retro-future touch to another fine-looking game starring a feisty blue robot boy.
I’ve got here two different covers of the Mighty No. 9 theme. Above is a rock version courtesy of Chilean guitarist Cristián “Psycho Crusher” Escobar. Like all his other songs, you can download it right now off his Bandcamp page.
Below is a piano rendition performed by Matsumae-san herself. It is sadly just a preview, but the full version is likely to be posted on the game’s Kickstarter page in the coming week. Stay alert!
