Mighty No. 9 designer Keiji Inafune was deeply frank about his latest game’s development troubles on a stream meant to celebrate its launch. It’s not something you hear very often from typically quiet Japanese game developers.
Mighty No. 9 is finally out. Yet, it looks like some of the people who made it all happen are having difficulty getting their download codes or simply figuring out what exactly is going on.
“And make the bad guys cry like an anime fan on prom night,” says the cringey narrator in this new trailer for Mighty No. 9, a video game starring anime characters. It’s as horrible as it sounds.
After endless delays and a gradual drain of fan hope and excitement, the Mega Man successor Mighty No. 9 is actually coming out: on June 21, 2016.
Although Mighty No. 9, the Megaman-like, crowdfunded platformer, was originally expected in April 2015, its release date was first moved to September 15, then to February 9 of this year. This latest delay shifts the date to spring 2016. At the earliest.
After suffering a pretty shady delay, Comcept claims Mighty No. 9 will ship on February 9 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The 3Ds and Vita versions are coming “at a later date.” We’ll see! Start placing your bets.
Mighty No. 9, an upcoming video game about a blue robot who fights against evil robot masters and collects their powers, was recently delayed until next year. This would not be an issue—video games get delayed!—if everything around it wasn’t so damn shady.
Thirty days after launching, one of the sloppiest professional campaigns in Kickstarter history has come to an end at $519,999, well short of its $800,000 goal.
In 2013, game producer Keiji Inafune earned gamers’ hearts worldwide by promising to bring back Mega Man in the form of Mighty No. 9. Two years later, he’s launched a sloppy, misleading new Kickstarter that threatens to squander all that goodwill.
You might think that, given the widespread love for Mega Man Legends (and the loud outcry when Capcom cancelled #3), a spiritual successor wouldn’t have trouble finding funding.
With their spiritual successor to the original Mega Man slated for release in September, Keiji Inafune’s Comcept has launched a pair of Kickstarters for Red Ash, a video game and anime project that’s pretty much the spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends.
No offense to the lead creator of Mega Man, but the words “From Keiji Inafune” in the debut trailer for a new Xbox One game called ReCore weren’t what excited me most. It was what came next: “and the makers of Metroid Prime.” And that was before I even found out what the game actually is.
Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune's 3DS action-RPG about a pirate penguin, Kaio: King of Pirates, has been cancelled due to internal development-related difficulties and "sudden changes in the marketplace," reports Siliconera. Kaio was announced in late 2011, and was slated to come out, after a delay, in 2014.
After successfully reaching the English voice acting stretch goal, Mighty No. 9's slacker backer campaign is now raising money for a post-release DLC pack consisting of an extra stage with its own boss fight. The planned release window is Summer 2015, provided they can collect another $190,000 by the end of this year.
In Azure Striker Gunvolt, you play the role of the electricity manipulating Gunvolt. If you thought that with Keiji Inafune as producer, Gunvolt would be just another enemy power-stealing Mega Man clone, worry not – That's your rival character.
The upcoming mega-man-like from Keiji Inafune has a fairly meaty new trailer.
Having raised more than $4 million to reincarnate Mega Man as a less stagnant property, Keiji Inafune's Comcept doesn't need more money to deliver the game they promised. They need more money to make it better, and so a new crowdfunding campaign is born.
Azure Striker Gunvolt is a new 3DS game from Keiji Inafune and Inti Creates. Headed to the Nintendo eShop this summer, Azure Striker Gunvolt was revealed earlier today.
Mighty No. Alpha: here's Keiji Inafune briefly playing an early Mighty No. 9 build—you might remember it as the spiritual successor to Mega Man. The game is not done, obviously, but its still nice to see progress!
