Comcept to blame
It’s fairly evident the handheld versions of Mighty No. 9 are stuck in video game development hell. Comcept has not provided an update on these iterations of the game since 2017 - essentially leaving backers in the dark. Following up from its investigation earlier this week, Destructoid has since explained how port specialist...
Playing the waiting game
Mighty No. 9 by Comcept had a rough development cycle, suffering from a series of delays and then a bumpy launch filled with performance problems and middling reviews. It's safe to say, the game didn't live up to expectations. As a result of these issues, the handheld versions appear to be stuck in limbo. The title was...
"The possibilities are limitless here"
Mighty No. 9 studio Comcept has been acquired by Level-5 - custodians of the Professor Layton and Yo-Kai Watch franchises - to create a new company named Level-5 Comcept. This will be an entirely new studio built upon the foundations of Comcept’s existing staff, which currently consists of about 15...
No comment from publisher on "Spring" launch
Kickstarter success story Mighty No. 9 hasn't had the smoothest of routes to market. After smashing its crowdfunding goal by some margin the title was expected to launch in September last year, but missed that original release window and was given an "early 2016" date. It then slipped from its new release...
Now targeting Spring
Mighty No. 9 began with a spectacularly successful Kickstarter campaign, with the project leadership of Keiji Inafune and the sense of it being a spiritual successor to Mega Man being factors in its popularity. Since that period of hype in mid 2013 it's endured some tougher times, though - the final visual style has been...
"We are upset as well, just as much as the backers"
As we suggested in our article regarding Mighty No. 9's delay into early 2016, Comcept has endured a tough and damaging period for its image with fans. After the giddy highs of the game's successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013, multiple delays and some poor communication / decision making around...
Not so long ago it was announced that there'll be a new Mega Man cartoon in 2017, which is something to look forward to, but Keiji Inafune and his Comcept team evidently don't want their spiritual successor to Capcom's IP - Mighty No. 9 - to be outshone. In an announcement that sent our collective eyebrows skyrocketing it's...
Mega Man Legends veteran developers brought on board
As was promised in teases last week, Keiji Inafune and his Comcept team have launched Kickstarter campaigns for new projects, both a game and animation. RED Ash: The Indelible Legend is a sci-fi adventure with the aim of "immersing players in a freely explorable anime world." The game project is...
Such big eyes
Forget Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure: there's a new contender on the block for "most adorable pirates". Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune just unveiled the trailer for his new 3DS game, King of Pirates, and it's full of all the things we love about video games: action, pirates, penguins and an eagle holding a...
