Comcept whipped up another nice little look behind the scenes of Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune's Kickstarter-funded spiritual successor to Mega Man. The video features Inafune doing some live-drawing as he sketches a design for one of the platformer's Humanoid Robot grunt enemies.
Here's the original design:
The feedback Inafune gave to the folks at Inti Creates:
• Even if it’s humanoid, it’s still a robot; the less human-like, the better.
• Instead of holding a gun and shield in a pair of hands, let’s have the shield attach to its back...
• When protecting itself, the body rotates around and the shield faces front.
• The design should have functionality like this in mind.
The modified version based on Inafune's sketch and feedback:
Mighty No. 9 is currently in the works for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS. It's expected to arrive in spring 2015.
