The award-winning Japanese game makers known as Level-5 (Professor Layton, Yo-Kai Watch) will be getting slightly bigger soon — they’ve bought out a small development studio called Comcept. This was the studio founded by Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune after he left Capcom.
Back in the day, Capcom put out Mega Man games as frequently as the rain. If you finished the latest one, you just waited a month and another new one would appear. Then creator Keiji Inafune had to strike out on his own, and fans had to find out the hard way how long it takes to churn out a game without a massive corporation backing you up.
Per the Kickstarter page for Mighty No. 9, the highly anticipated game has been delayed yet again. This is the third delay for the game and will likely come as a major disappointment to fans and people who pledged money to the project on Kickstarter.
At some point, people are going to start to question just how mighty No. 9 really is.
The last month has been tumultuous for Mighty No. 9, the spiritual cousin to Mega Man that Capcom refused to give you. Keiji Inafune, creator of the Blue Bomber, took to Kickstarter to fund his vision. It was a massively successful move that inspired other classic Japanese game creators to crowdfund their own dream projects, and now we live in a world where Shenmue 3 is possible.
Comcept and Keiji Inafune have announced their next video game project, Red Ash, which will follow the release of Mighty No. 9 later this year. The new game is an upcoming third-person, action RPG that pays homage to Japanese anime and Inafune’s vision of “immersing players in a freely explorable anime world.”
Unfortunately, Keiji Inafune fans who have been avidly awaiting his new crowd funded game release, Mighty No. 9, will have to wait a bit longer for the game. Compcept officially confirmed today that the title has been pushed back for a September 15 release date. The game was originally expected for a spring 2015 release date, but that is no longer the case. The good news is that Deep Silver has partnered with the title for a physical release in retail stores.
The official website for the upcoming new video game, Mighty No. 9, from Mega Man franchis co-creator and producer Keiji Inafune has announced the full English voice cast for the title. The voice-over work from the game was recorded at Rocket Sound in Los Angeles, CA in December, and the game features an all-star lineup of voice-over talent from many amazing veterans. So it sounds like the game will be fully voiced.
In a new video message released late last month by game publisher Comcept, video game producer Keiji Inafune revealed that his game project, Mighty No. 9, is “pretty much finished.” In addition, he game is now entering its “porting and promotion stage.”
