We were so close! Just as we got a few weeks away from the February 9 release date of Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune announced a new delay over at the game's Kickstarter page. Due to some critical networking bugs, particularly in the area of matchmaking, Mighty No. 9 has been pushed back to a loose spring 2016 release. Hit the jump for more.
The latest trailer for Mighty No. 9 is really pushing the GamePro-approved "Fun Factor," highlighting a bunch of the action and replayability that awaits in the latest from Keiji Inafune and Comcept. See some of the extra modes available, from Boss Rush to One Hit Death Maniac Mode, in the preview after the jump.
Mighty No. 9 has experienced its share of ups and downs since its initial success on Kickstarter, and USgamer's Jeremy Parish recently sat down with Keiji Inafune to discuss all that and more. One of the questions brought up the fact that third-party amiibo are now possible, and Inafune responded positively to the suggestion of doing something like that for Mighty No. 9.

It hasn't exactly been an amazing week for Comcept and Keiji Inafune. Sure, Studio 4ºC's anime got funded, but the Kickstarter for the game failed, and even though Red Ash will still be made, a sizable vat of ill will has been brewing as a result. Oh yeah, and a delay for Mighty No. 9 was also confirmed. Hit the jump for more.
Despite all the hullabaloo surrounding the Red Ash Kickstarter, now seems like an appropriate time for the following Mighty No. 9 video. The Summer Games Done Quick speedrunning marathon is still going strong right now, and speedrunning is the name of the game in the latest batch of footage. Watch an opening stage speedrun from Inti Creates after the jump.
Keiji Inafune and Comcept's Mega Man Legends-style Red Ash: The Indelible Legend doesn't look like it will be hitting its $800,000 goal. It's not impossible, but there's quite a ways to go with just four days left. It doesn't really matter, though, because the game has been fully funded for development thanks to the help of Chinese digital entertainment company FUZE Entertainment. More after the jump.
A few days ago a runtime extension was announced for Studio 4ºC's anime side of the two-pronged Red Ash project. Following not too far behind is an update on the Mega Man Legends-style game, which is coming from Keiji Inafune and the folks at Comcept. Hit the jump for some very early footage.
Comcept and Studio 4ºC teased their Red Ash project prior to Anime Expo, and it ended up being a jumping point for two connected projects, each with their own individual Kickstarter campaigns. We posted about Studio 4ºC's anime side earlier, so now it's time to take a look at what Mega Man and Mighty No. 9's Keiji Inafune is cooking up for the game. Hit the jump for more.
Yesterday we posted about Mighty No. 9 creator and former Mega Man producer Keiji Inafune cooking up a special announcement for Anime Expo 2015, and we've already got a little tease for it. Since Inafune will be on a panel with Studio 4ºC president Eiko Tanaka, it makes sense that they would want to reveal their new collaboration known as Red Ash. Read on for more.
If you’re attending this week’s Anime Expo you can look forward to a special appearance by Keiji Inafune, who will be hosting a panel along with Studio 4ºC president Eiko Tanaka. The panel—which will have the two discussing anime and video games—is set for July 4 at 11:30am Pacific Time, with autograph sessions to be held throughout the weekend. Hit the jump for more.
One of the first real surprises of E3 2015 came during Microsoft's press conference this morning. While it was only shown in the form of a CG-animated trailer, ReCore is a new game from Keiji Inafune (Mega Man, Dead Rising, Mighty No. 9) and Armature Studio, which consists of former members of Metroid Prime developer Retro Studios. See the trailer after the jump.
Keiji Inafune's Kickstarter success story Mighty No. 9 is gradually getting closer to release. The spiritual successor to the Mega Man series arrives on consoles and PC on September 15, and the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will also be available in a Signature Edition that's "extremely limited." Hit the jump for more.
A few big chunks of news came out of today's Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter update, starting with a partnership between Comcept and publisher Deep Silver. While the release date is being pushed back from its original projected April release to September, Mighty No. 9 will be getting a bunch of extras as a result, including a physical launch at retail. More after the jump.
