Inafune Delivers – Mighty No. 9 To Launch Worldwide This June Without Further Delay

It has almost been three years since Keji Inafune announced the much-anticipated platformer Mighty No.9, and after indefinite delay periods we thought would never change, it has finally been announced to be getting a worldwide release a month from now in June. It has been revealed that Comcept have officially completed development of the game, and that it will be released across Asia and North America on the 21st of June, with the rest of the world to receive it on the 24th. Though it has been quite some time, and the hype train has slowed to an almost complete stop, many fans are glad that Keiji Inafune and his dedicated team have taken the time to polish the game as much as they possibly could have, as well as making it available on almost every console currently in circulation. Comcept have put a great deal of their time and effort into making Mighty No. 9 the worthwhile successor to that of Inafune’s original Blue Bomber Megaman. To announce that the game will soon be …

The Newest Trailer For Mighty No. 9 Says “Bring It!”

It’s nearly the end of the year, and Keiji Inafune’s long-awaited MegaMan spiritual successor Mighty No. 9 is set to be released on the 9th of February 2016. This means people are, once again, starting to get hyped for a video game that will hopefully be very much worth the wait. The pop culture world actually hasn’t heard from Inafune, Comcept, or Mighty No. 9 as a whole for quite some time, then all of the sudden a trailer is released that shows, we assume, the final product. I have to say…I’m pretty damn excited, despite the fact that we’ve had to wait quite a long time for it’s release. Usually, with articles like this, I try to add as much attitude in as possible. You know, just to give the news a little bit more personality. After watching the new trailer…it doesn’t look like that’s necessary at all, considering the narrator does a better job at giving the audience a bit of likable attitude than I ever could. My hope is that it disarms …

Mighty Things, Small Packages – Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Announced 

 Overnight, Comcept and Deep Silver who’re now the publishers of Keiji Inafune’s attempt to revive Mega Man announced an interesting special edition pack for their upcoming title Mighty No. 9. For the longest time we had heard no word regarding this modern day side-scroller and then all of the sudden we’re given this; the Mighty No. 9 – Signature Edition which comes packed with a copy of the vidro game, a 6.5 inch figurine of Beck himself, and a replica of Keiji Inafune’s signature which will be placed on the box of the pack. The most exciting feature of this Signature Edition would have to be the posable figure of Beck which not only stands at a pretty nice 6.5 inches tall, as mentioned, but also comes with three interchangeable faceplates to match your mood. The awesome thing about this edition as a whole is that it will only set buyers back about $60, but you’ll have to investigatw local video game retailers just to make. Prices change all over the world. The price of …

A Mighty Wait – Mighty No. 9 Release Pushed Back to September

Alas, the title of this article is true. The upcoming Keiji Inafune led project Mighty No. 9 is having its release date pushed back to September 2015. However, all is not bad. Due to this delay, Comcept has announced a few additional elements that will now launch on day one. Bolstering the spread of Beck, Call and the rest of the cast, the game will now feature an extra eight subtitle language options (Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese). The Ray DLC set will also tag along, granting everyone with and extra level, boss and playable character. Which is pretty sweet. All of this comes with the reveal that a physical version of the game will now launch when the game is officially released. For North America, this is September 15th, with Europe and the rest of the planet of Earth following on September 18th. This is most likely due to the announcement that Comcept has teamed up with publisher Deep Silver. Regardless, our wait will lead to more content, which is something …

Mighty No. 9 – Inafune Says “Happy New Year” And Details Game Progress

It’s well-known that the relationship between Keiji Inafune and the heads over at Capcom wasn’t that of a stable one by the end of his run at the game developer. While we never truly know what went on behind closed doors what we do know is that Capcom are definitely kicking themselves now that Inafune is on the verge of releasing what is looking to be one of the better games of 2015. Well the head of the newly established Comcept has, over the weekend, released a video online where he takes the chance to say “Happy New Year” to all of his fans as well as update us all on the progress of “Mighty No. 9”. For the most part,  Inafune says, the game is basically done! The only thing the small crew at Comcept have to work on now is actually porting the game to all the different consoles, as well as general promotional stuff. Don’t just take my word for it though. Check out the video just below to see exactly what Inafune …

Mighty No. 9 – 2015 Progress Update Shows Highway Stage

Every once in a while, Comcept and Inti Creates give the world an update on the progress of the upcoming side-scrolling adventure title “Mighty No.9” which you’d know, unless you’ve been living under a rock, is a new game that will surely be seen as the “Megaman” of the new generation. At least, that’s the way it has been coming across. Like any project backed by a Kickstarter campaign, when an update on the development process comes around you always hope what’s shown is some actual progress. With “Mighty No.9”, though updates are scattered, everytime we see one there’s always something exciting and new for the world to sink its teeth into, and that really is the sign of a great development company. Though with Keiji Inafune at the head…it’s no real surprise that the game is coming along nicely. The latest update is pretty simple: It’s a few screenshots of a single stage that somewhat reminds me of the beginning of “Megaman X”. Those of you who played it will know what it is …

Mighty No. 9 Hints at Possible Future DLC

Having just given beta players the chance to test out a third (and final) level in the upcoming Mighty No. 9, Comcept has also revealed a few new pieces of information regarding the upcoming title. Namely, how it will sound. After holding a vote between the backers of the game, it was decided that Mighty No. 9 will feature English voicing, with the option beating out a Japanese version by 1,000 votes. A brief trailer has also been revealed that hints at the possibility for some future expansion to the ranks of the 9. Boosting the group into the double digits, the mysterious No. 0 presents his mismatched guise and evil glare. Who is this No. 0? Why is he so menacing? What purpose does he serve? Hopefully all these questions and more will be answered when the Mighty No. 9 (and it’s possible DLC) are released. -30-

Mighty No.9 – “Beck Springs Into Action” Videos Released

Keiji Inafune and his team over at Inti Creates never leave their fans wanting for too long. It was only last week that we were given some awesome news regarding the MIghty No.9 animated series and the beginning of another Kickstarter campaign, as part of that campaign we have today been given a closer look at just what it is that Beck can do with a series of videos all falling under the title; “Beck Springs Into Action”. Inafune and Co have released four clips, each of which running for exactly thirty seven seconds, just enough time to Beck to strut his stuff and show us just how formidable a hero he truly is.

Below we’ve provided all four of the videos so head down there to check them out. ‘Might No.9’ isn’t set for a release until sometime next year so there’s still a long …

‘Mighty No.9’ Animated Series Announced + Inafune Sets Up New Kickstarter Campaign

The lords of pop culture are truly smiling down upon us. It’s a Monday over here in Australia so it is Sunday over in North America, that means Anime Expo is still in full swing and, like all pop culture conventions, it’s going to go out with a bang! The legendary Keiji Inafune held his very own panel at the expo over the weekend and there he announced some very exciting news regarding his latest video game project but, unlike the announcements that came before this, it has nothing to do with the ‘Mighty No.9’ game. Mr. Inafune and his associates revealed that they have plans to make their very own ‘Mighty No.9’ animated series. Isn’t this amazing!? I’ll put money on it that no one from the Inafune fandom ever thought this is what the man would be announcing at Anime Expo 2014 but I’m sure a few had their suspicions. This shocked me but I’m so glad I was able to wake up to such a brilliant announcement! Digital Frontier, who are a …

Mighty No. 9: In Progress and Looking Good

If you’re one of the few (hundreds of thousands) of people who have been keeping an eye on Keiji Inafune’s latest project, you’ll be happy to know that some new footage has been released. Though still a work-in-progress, the video showcases some of Beck’s abilities as he takes on baddies in a side scrolling world of awesome. Comcept were also kind enough to reveal some more information on Beck’s accomplice, the bubbly yet determined Call. Showcasing some animated loops of her movement, the creators wish it to be known that this girl, whilst not built for combat, will do everything she can to help Beck out. Attention has also been drawn to the pink object adorning her back, you know, the one that looks like a sweet jetpack. Though we don’t yet know exactly what Call’s abilities entail, she will certainly be a valuable ally to Beck. Also, don’t you just love wordplay? Rock on Keiji Inafune.           -30-
