Mega Man's spiritual successor - Mighty No. 9 by Keiji Inafune

If you're a fan of the classic 2D Mega Man games, then this post is for you.

In case you've been living under a rock for the past few days, there's a new Kickstarter that just started a few days ago by Mega Man's co-creator, Keiji Inafune. Titled "Mighty No. 9", it's aiming to be a spiritual successor to Mega Man and it definitely shows by the design of the main character. It's pretty much certain that the gameplay will be different enough from Mega Man to avoid being sued by Capcom but the main music composer is already confirmed to be the man responsible for the music of the very first game.

Anything else you can find out on the project's Kickstarter page. I know I'm backing it.
Current project:
Mega Man: Powered Up (PSP)

I love that video and the (obvious) Mega Man references.

I love the character designs in Inafune's stuff, so I'm really glad to see him working on this. The name makes me think of Cyborg 009, though. :P

Proud to say that I am a backer (Becker?) for this project! :D

Totally stoked for this game, and to the tune of $4 million just on Kickstarter/PayPal alone, I *really* hope Capcom is paying attention.
