New Updates As Mighty No. 9 Races To The Funding Finish Line

Mighty No. 9 has just over one day left to reach its lofty stretch goals on Kickstarter. Fortunately, odds are high that the game will blow past these very goals. The game continues to make headlines with its latest round of updates.

Mega Man X fans will be thrilled to hear that Mighty No. 9 will now have an intro stage and boss which will make the game feel closer to a mix of both classic Mega Man and the legendary X series. Another piece of good news is that Mega Man 2 composer Takashi Tateishi is confirmed to be officially attached to the project alongside Mega Man 1 composer Manami Matsumae (it should also be noted that longtime Mega Man composer Ippo Yamada is on board as well). That is an all star lineup of musical artists for the project which is sure to be a delight for the ears.

The most interesting update has been a 13 second clip of mocked up gameplay footage of the game. The Unreal Engine was used to craft the short demo and was accomplished in 7 days by Inti Creates (a company with MANY years of experience with Mega Man as they worked on the Zero series as well as Mega Man 9 & 10). It is an impressive sneak peek that is sure to  bring back memories of the Blue Bomber while giving a tantalizing taste of what's to come. It should be noted that this is an extremely early look at the game and should be treated as such. Enjoy!
