Friday Spotlight: Mighty No. 9

Mighty No. 9
PC - PS3 - PS4 - Xbox 360 - Xbox One - Wii U
Developer: Comcept
Publisher: Comcept
Release Date: TBD

Following the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune used Kickstarter to get Mighty No. 9 off the ground. In two days, it reached its Kickstarter goal and began development back in late 2013.

Gameplay has been promised to be very similar to Mega Man, a 2D side scrolling platformer using 3D animation and graphics. Each of the eight stages can be chosen in any order, and upon defeating the Mighty boss at the end you will gain a new ability.

The protagonist of the game, Beck, will be able to shift forms during a stage. This can range from magnetizing joints to walk on walls to turning into a tank to traverse spikes.

Regardless, the game looks great. Mega Man has been a staple since childhood and its successor looks just as fun. You can see its progress from their official website.
