    Not heard of that before, the Mighty No. 9. However, it looks cool game, it uses Unreal Engine.

      Just think of it as a spiritual successor to the Megaman series by Capcom which was made by Keiji Inafune (he’s also the creator of this game and the CEO of a company named Comcept which consists of former Capcom employees).

      If kotetsu is right, then Mighty No. 9 is really a good game. I do love Capcom games since I was 5 years old… Remember those good old days with Marvels and Megaman.

      Indeed a revival of Mega Man.
