Mighty No. 9 video shows some 'Mega' inspiration

Comcept has released some more footage for Keiji Inafune's upcoming Mighty No. 9, revealing more pieces of Mighty No. 2 and 5's stages.


Alright, here's a challenge. Let's attempt to get through one Mighty No. 9 post without making any references to Mega Man. Ready? Let's go!

New video footage for creator Keiji Inafune's upcoming platformer, Mighty No. 9 released earlier today, showing off some more early gameplay footage.

The new footage was first released to Kickstarter backers. The trailer shows some new old-school platforming footage, revealing more pieces of Mighty No. 2 and 5's water and artillery-themed stages that originally debuted last month. This includes showing off new enemies and more of Mighty No. 9's abilities, like air dashes and powerful cannon shots. It also shows the game's stage start animation for the first time. It sure looks familiar, just like the stage start phrase for a certain Blue Bomber's game.

(Ok, so I lost that challenge. Better luck next time.)
