Over the past weekend, Keiji Inafune was launching a brand new KickStarter project for the spiritual successor to Mega Man called Mighty No. 9.

Mighty No. 9 – KickStarter Trailer

The good news is that the project is already fully funded. As of the time writing this post $1,313,262 of $900,000 to be exact. The bad news is that I am not part of the project.

Now I’m not saying that my name should have been brought up during any conversations about who should be involved with this project. I’ve just always wanted to create an actual Mega Man boss, that doesn’t get rejected, and while this is not an actual Mega Man game it will still feel like one to me.

    If you pledge enough, I think you can make a boss…

    I think someone should suggest a competition to design a MN 10 (or whatever) for possible use in Mighty No. 9 2, which the MN9 backers would then vote on.

    …I respect the HELL out of this here…

    Once upon a time, Capcom screwed Inafune over by turning his original franchise to shit, cancelled a number of highly anticipated games (Mega Man Legends 3 in particular…), and kicked him to the curb after they were done with him.

    Now, he's trying to create a new franchise…by taking all of the elements of his old franchise…and marketing them as a new franchise. All the while; using the fanbase he's acquired over the year for support and funding, thus, cutting Capcom out as the middlemen…

    RESPECT. ABSOLUTE RESPECT.
