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.

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."

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.
Keiji Inafune's spiritual Mega Man successor Mighty No. 9 has some solid voice talent contributing to its dub, including Yuri Lowenthal (Simon in Gurren Lagann) as Beck and more. You can get a sample of each in Comcept's "The Mighty Voices part 1" video after the jump.
Remember Kaio: King of Pirates? It's okay if you don't. I'm pretty sure the last time we posted about Keiji Inafune's game was when the Studio Pierrot anime adaptation was announced in January 2013. Sadly, none of that will come to be, because Marvelous announced that Kaio: King of Pirates has been canceled. Read on for more.
The official website for Comcept and Inti Create's Mighty No. 9 recently updated with a tour of Mighty No. 4's domain. The stage in question is a mine full of vicious traps, some of which you can see in the screens after the jump.

In the latest development update from Kickstarter success Mighty No. 9, the folks at Comcept revealed some snazzy box art, which really nails the Famicom style.

Comcept recently shared a video promoting some potential DLC for Mighty No. 9, which, as you may recall, isn't even out yet.

In addition to making a new stage available to beta players, Comcept posted a few new updates regarding the currently-in-development Mighty No. 9. After asking fans to offer up opinions on English vs. Japanese voices, Comcept settled on including English voice acting. More on that and potential DLC after the jump.
