Keiji Inafune is a big name to fans of Capcom's past. He has had a hand in many of the company's biggest games ranging from Resident Evil to Onimusha to Dead Rising. His single biggest creation is Mega Man who has since become one of the most recognizable video games characters of all time starring in well over 100 different video games. After an influential 23 years with Capcom, Mr. Inafune made a well publicized exit from the company in 2010 which in turn caused Capcom to cancel all Mega Man projects much to the dismay of fans. 3 years have passed and Capcom continues to disappoint Mega Man fans with no new games and quick cash grab merchandising based off of the characters legacy. Nintendo has actually done more with the character through his inclusion in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. which delighted fans at E3 2013.new Kickstarter campaign for an upcoming game titled Mighty No. 9. At first glance, you would be forgiven for thinking the game was a next gen side scrolling Mega Man game. Hell, the Kickstarter video has so much imagery from the Blue Bomber you'd think it was crafted in such a way to give Capcom a huge middle finger. Mighty No. 9 is based around the title character Beck who is "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". Everything from character designs to the ability to use weapons and abilities from enemies echoes the Blue Bomber and looks as if it was changed just enough to avoid legal issues with Capcom. The game (scheduled for a 2015 release) has a $900,000 funding goal for the PC version with stretch goals that include a version of the game for the Wii U/PS3/360 at $2.5 Million. Announced only a few hours ago, the game has already gotten over $100,000 in the time it took to write this article! Seeing as Capcom has shown nothing but contempt for the Mega Man franchise in recent years, this is the best of both worlds as we get both a brand new franchise as well as a new Mega Man game all rolled into one.
