Good news, platformer fans! Mega Man 11 is on the way! … Except Capcom’s got nothing to do with it, it’s not actually called Mega Man, and you need to fund it. Thanks to the wonders of Kickstarter and Capcom’s bold vision for the franchise, ex-employee and famed Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune has taken it upon himself to create a “spiritual successor”, which looks suspiciously like a knockoff that’s being designed by all the people who should be making Mega Man 11 right now. The game is called Mighty No. 9, and here’s the Kickstarter trailer for it:
To summarize, here’s what we know about the game so far:
- It’s basically Mega Man
You can get the full scoop on Mighty No. 9 from the official Kickstarter page. There’s even still time to donate, assuming Capcom hasn’t already milked your wallet dry with their wonderful Mega Man 25th Anniversary offerings of games you already own,
Mega Man X9, music you’ve already downloaded, Mega Man Legends 3, slightly updated books you’ve already bought, Mega Man Powered Up 2, and Sonic the Hedgehog comics. Remember: Ripping off someone else’s game is totally OK if you used to be involved with it and your fans are more excited about your game than the real thing.
