The lights are on
Mighty No. 9, the Mega Man spiritual successor from original creator Keiji Inafune, is coming together. Developer Comcept has released the game's first gameply footage. Previously, Comcept released this footage, but it was very early footage, and was missing most of the game's art assets.
If you're familiar with Mega Man at all, this footage will look familiar – which is not a complaint. This is exactly what Kickstarter backers offered their dollars for.
Along with the gameplay video below, Comcept has also unveiled designs for two of the game's bosses. Mighty No. 2 and Mighty No. 5, which you can see above. The latter even makes a brief appearance in the gameplay footage.
Mighty No. 9 is planned for release spring 2015 for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One, Wii U, Vita, and 3DS.

Basically, this is what Capcom should be doing with the X series.
Love the music and level design, but I admit I am not a fan of the giant flashy fx everywhere that are so large and obnoxious they completely cover/hide both the character and the enemies. That's just.. blarg, otherwise looks great.
I am also withholding judgment about the combat. I am not sure about that invincible-dash thing. I am just trying to think of what mega Man X would have been like with a move like that and it seems like it would have been really boring, but again I haven't played the game and maybe it's better designed to utilize it and somehow make it fun, I don't know.
Awesome initiated! Perfect for PS4 and remote play on Vita.
Hmmm...not particularly sold on the bland art style, but from a gameplay perspective, this looks fantastic. Definitely brings to mind Mega Man while forging a new name for itself. I'll keep an eye on this...
Now this will be a game that I can't wait for i like mighty nine from the looks of it because its better than mega man that's for sure.
I definitely want.
It's looking to shape up pretty nicely. ^_^
spring 2015. aaaahhhh~ just 1 more year.
Looks great. A lot of dashing, but it still looks great. I will definitely be picking this up.
Looks pretty sweet.
okay so its just hours of shooting and dashing?
