The reception to Mighty No. 9 has been pretty mixed after the game’s Kickstarter Campaign failed to match visual style of what is now in development, but where I’m coming from it still looks like it’ll be a fun time.
That’s only exemplified by this new trailer for the game in which a hilarious announcer talks about all of the features of the game, like a boss rush mode, challenge mode, online and more. Does it look revolutionary? Of course not, but as far as gameplay goes it’s looking pretty solid.
Mighty No. 9 is will launch on February 12th, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS and PC.
The Kickstarter campaign for Keiji Inafune and Comcept’s Red Ash isn’t going nearly as well as they had hoped, which has resulted in them resorting to desperate measures to try and conjure up some interest in the game. The latest attempt they are pulling is releasing a very early and playable prototype of the game, which is less than fun if you happened to be wondering.
I know that this is a prototype and not a demo, but seeing as the whole point of this prototype is to get people interested in the game I’m not really seeing the point. There’s nothing in it that sells me on the game being any good, and ultimately it just gives more fuel for naysayers to shun it.

The Kickstarter for Red Ash is currently sitting at $106,124 with 5 days to go and a goal of $150,000. It certainly isn’t looking good, but maybe it can pull off some late-game theatrics like these things tend to do.
Well, that was quick. After wrapping up production on Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9, the creator is back on Kickstarter to begin production on a spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends called Red Ash.
This was announced today at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles, where they announced that they are looking to raise $800,000 to get the project going. However, there is also a second campaign where $150,000 is being asked for to produce an animated film containing the same world and characters.
As for what we can expect the game to be like, Comcept says that the game will be a third-person action adventure game with shooter and RPG elements.

As you may or may not know, Mighty No. 9 is releasing on every platform under the Sun. However, how the game wil utilize each platforms unique features has been up for debate for sometime. That has all changed, however, as developer Comcept has revealed what you can expect for each version of the game.
To start things off, if you purchase any PlayStation version of the game (PS4, PS3, PS Vita) you will have access to the other versions of the game via cross-buy for free. In my opinion, this is the best option as this kind of game screams to be played on the Vita.
Next up we have the Nintendo platforms, as the game will be coming to both Wii U and 3DS. Playing the game on Wii U will allow you to play it on the Gamepad, though there will be no motion or Miiverse function of any kind. The 3DS version will have 3D functionality and touch support, but there will be no amiibo support for either platform.
Lastly, there is no special specifications to be made about playing the game on Windows 10 or Xbox One. Some were hoping that there might be some cross-buy support similar to what PlayStation has going on, but that currently is not the case.

It won’t be making its Spring release window, but we do have an official release date now.
Famed Mega Man developer Kenji Inafune’s Mighty No.9 is officially releasing this September, missing its initial release window of April by 5 months.
The game is a spiritual successor to Mega Man and is only possible thanks to a very successful Kickstarter campaign. Developer Comcept said the following of the release date:
“First of all, yes, it is a delay from our original Spring estimate. The reason for the delay, and the reason we are so excited about this new partnership [with Deep Silver] in the first place, is all the cool stuff it will allow us to add to the game – content that all Backers will get absolutely free.
Mighty No. 9 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, 3DS and PC on September 15th.
