Kickstarter campaign for Mega Man successor begins
Keiji Inafune, the creator of Mega Man and former Capcom producer has started a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to release a new game called Mighty No. 9 – a spiritual successor to the popular 80’s game Mega Man (aka Rockman).
Mighty No. 9 is a new game that inherits the classic Japanese side-scrolling action of the good ol’ days injected with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input. It is handled by an all-star dev team of Japanese game creators (including Inafune) with extensive experience in the genre, and with Mega Man in particular.
In this game, you will play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, who will then slug it out against mechanized creatures infected with a computer virus. Like Mega Man, Beck can run, jump, blast and transform.
Mighty No. 9 is currently being developed for the PC and will be made available through Steam and DRM-free digital distribution methods. The estimated release date is spring 2015.
The Kickstarter campaign has just started last Saturday and, at the time of writing, has already received $783,000 in pledges of its $900,000 goal. If you want to support the project you can head to the source link below.
