PS Vita - Mighty No. 9 | GDC 2014 - Alpha Gameplay Video
Mighty No. 9 (マイティーナンバーナイン Maitī Nanbā Nain) is an upcoming action-platform video game in development by Comcept in conjunction with Inti Creates, and directed by Keiji Inafune. The creation of the game was based on the online crowdfunding website, Kickstarter, and incorporates heavy input from the public. Mighty No. 9 very closely resembles another Inafune creation, Mega Man, in both gameplay and character design, and is considered by many as its spiritual successor. It will also be the fourth released game by development studio Comcept.
Gameplay in Mighty No. 9 is focused on 2D platforming with a blend of 2D and 3D artwork and animation. The player is able to run, jump and shoot projectiles at enemies they encounter. Furthermore, the player will be able to acquire both weapons and abilities from enemies they defeat. The game will feature an intro level followed by the eight main stages, which are freely chosen in any order by the player. At the end of each stage, Beck must face one of the other eight "Mighty Number" units in a boss battle. A final set of stages are unlocked at the end of the game, leading up to the final showdown. An additional level starring Call is also available at some point, provided through one of the completed stretch goals.
Beck's body has the ability to transform into different shapes, according to the specific Mighty Number robot that he defeats. The enemy will reveal certain weak spots that the player can shoot in order to obtain "Xel" (pronounced "Cel") and take on a new form. These forms, called "Mighty Skills", will grant the player new abilities and ways to tackle the levels. For example, a certain ability can allow Beck to adorn magnetic limbs in order to climb walk up structures or disable enemy shields, while another could allow Beck to shift into the form of a tank in order to easily traverse spiked areas and move certain objects. These transformations do not come exclusively from bosses, as Beck can transform after defeating enemy grunts, as well.
