Big news are shown for MegaMan Fans around the world (or maybe not), there has been confirmed a new project by Keiji Inafune that could be a new successor of our Blue Hero MegaMan.
Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game that takes the best aspects of the 8- and 16-bit era classics you know and love, and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh and amazing!
You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by a mysterious computer virus that has caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way through six stages (or more, via stretch goals) you can tackle in any order you choose, using weapons and abilities stolen from your enemies to take down your fellow Mighty Number robots and confront the final evil that threatens the planet!
Mighty No. 9 is being developed for the PC with gamepad support (of course!), and will be made available through Steam and DRM-free digital distribution methods including platforms Xbox 360 or PS3, home consoles, Mac, and Linux, are a high priority, but only if we can afford them via stretch goals. Should we reach those goals, anyone funding the project will be allowed to choose which version of the game they would like to receive. The estimated release date is spring 2015.
This project is on Kickstarter so it can involve YOU, the fans! Not only will this make it possible, through crowdfunding, for us to make the game exactly as we envision it, but it also allows us to bring dedicated fans of this genre together to assist the team in shaping aspects of the game’s design. We need your help! Let’s make something amazing, and let’s do it together!
Mr. Christian Svensson of Capcom USA has posted a survey on Capcom Unity asking various questions that will help guide they're future releases.
There are a few opportunities to voice your desire for something "Classic", "X-treme", "Legendary" and more, so get in there and let them know what we want! Like Sven said, this data will be show to Capcom of Japan and that's something we've needed all along!
