It was confirmed a while back that we could be seeing a Mighty No. 9 live-action movie in the not-too-distant future, but it would appear that Beck and friends could be hitting our screens sooner than expected.

Japanese studio Digital Frontier has put together a teaser trailer for a proposed animated series which not only looks incredibly polished, but also dials up the humour considerably — Beck is portrayed as a cute protagonist, something which might not sit well with those hoping the game will be a spiritual successor to the rather more stern Mega Man.

Here's what the guys over at Comcept had to say about the trailer:

We’re proud and truly humbled to present this amazing teaser video for our new project: exploring a Mighty No. 9 animated series!

The awesome men and women at Digital Frontier put this teaser together (and on their own dime!) to show the world how amazing a Mighty No. 9 animated series could be. We’re grateful to have their passion and skill on our side, and we can’t wait to see how this project unfolds!
