Lololol. I don't think I've seen a 'clone from the creator' this blatant since Shouzou Kaga's Emblem Saga. And chances are there's probably going to be a lawsuit involved with this one too.

Still, I'd take this over anything Capcom does with Mega Man at this point. (Although I'm of good mind to simply wash my hands of the matter and walk away. Partly because I'm getting too old to afford letting nostalgia run my life anymore, partly because I'd probably take another 20 years to get to the point where the Blue Bomber was before the whole thing collapsed, and partly to see the guy do new work rather than to cling to old glories.)
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I backed the shiiii out of this. I really enjoyed Comcept's last game (Soul Sacrifice), I love Megaman, and Inafune clearly is doing this as a passion project.

Mighty No. 9 is not Mega Man

KickStarter is at $465 million in less than 24 hours (there's a trailer on the KickStarter page)

Definitely not Mega Man. 



He can transform his body, see?  Mega Man can't do that. 



Those enemies have traffic cones on their heads and not hard hats.  And he's glowing in three colors! Totally not Mega Man.



OK, Keiji Inafune is the design lead, but this is a COMCEPT game and not a CAPCOM game, so it can't be Mega Man. 

So, this might not be Mega Man, but I'll probably give to the KickStarter anyway.  Because... I dunno.  It seems familliar.  Like an old best friend just came back from a years-long absence.

I think you mean 'thousand'.

Seriously, I was like "WTF?!" for a moment there.  $465 million would have been insane...

We could have cured world hunger but instead opted for Mega Mighty No. 9.  Hah

Sounds good to me!  Would copyright be an issue with this at all?

I moved one of these topics from general to misc. not seeing the other one. I would have merged, my bad.

This looks neat, but I did love Mega Man. ;) In the 2 minutes I spent looking at the Kickstarter it got $12,000. Crazy.

I just upgraded my pledge (after finally LOOKING at the KS page). This game looks fucking awesome. And they say at the bottom that as long as the game is funded, they're going to use their own resources to make up the difference for anything that c omes up short.

The whole 'get cell from enemies' thing sounds like Aria of Sorrow, Manami Matsumae is an awesome composer, and salfgjsadgklj. Yeah. Can't wait for this.

Someone needs to make a Megaman version of that Fry image with Fry-gaman shooting out money.
