VIDEO: "Mighty no. 9" Tests Its Unreal-Powered Engine in Short Clip

Keiji Inafune's Kickstarter-funded platformer offers a very rough sample

While the footage comes with a host of disclaimers, Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept shared the first footage testing the Unreal-powered, Kickstarter-funded Mighty no. 9.

 

The "super-rough engine test" below is just that, and shouldn't be considered a real sample of how the Mega Man-style platformer will look or play. It uses placeholder assets and, as the update page states, the game won't necessarily look, move, or act like it does in the video. 

 

 

The page adds, "Someday we will look back on this and laugh at how primitive it looks, but for now, for only one week of test work, it's pretty darn cool, don't ya think? :D"

 

That's not all the Mighty no. 9 news floating about. Comcept also announced the addition of another classic series composer. In addition to the previously announced Manami Matsumae of original Mega Man fame, Mighty no. 9 is bringing in Mega Man 2 composer Takashi Tateishi. 

 

There's just a bit over a full day left in the Mighty no. 9 Kickstarter, which has been incredibly successful. At the time of this writing it's at $3,059,021, waaaay above the initial $900k goal.
