In 2018, motherfuckin’ Capcom is giving us plebs some more Mega Man. Finally! I say, goddamn! This is of course coming now that they’re done laughing at the dumpster fire that was Mighty No. 9, the franchise’s spiritual successor whatever.
Mighty No. 9 is coming out. Like, relatively soon. It’s too good to be true.
Mighty No. 9 is never coming out, is it? Or it’s coming out, but the time it drops we will have moved on, ceased caring, become incapable of seeing it as another else than That Delayed Mega Man game.
So this is what Keiji Inafune is up to, instead of launching Mighty No. 9. Gotcha. Still dope, though. Admittedly.
Yeah. I don’t know, man. Mighty No. 9 looks like a fun enough game, but all of these delays are making me anxious. The time was supposed to drop February 9, but now it has been delayed to the foreboding, vague, “Spring 2016”. Whelp.
Fox wants to bring Mega Man to the big screen. Which seems interesting to me, because the franchise has been all but dead recently. There isn’t much downside to this news for me. Either the movie is great, and perhaps it draws Capcom and the franchise’s gaming existence out of its malaise. Or the movie bombs, which most expect, and nothing really changes on the gaming front. How do you feel about this?
In this post-modern world, where we doubt ourselves, our expressions, our very reality, not much is certain. At least for those of us who ascribe those wanky, somewhat debatable beliefs to Reality. But I think there’s one thing those of us who enjoy funny books and post-modernism can agree upon. One pointed, penetrating, non-perishable truth. That pierces through the pall of Post-Modernity: Jack Kirby is as awesome as it gets. In Reality. He’s the Best. And today, August 28, 2015, he would have been 98. Now sadly (for us, not him) he’s sloughed his mortal coil, transcended its greasy, entropy-bound parameters. But he’s still out there, surfing the gnarly astral waves. Beckoning us to join him. And while it is not our time to join him yet, let us honor Kirby.
The spiritual successor to Mega Man totally, totally has a release date now. Despite getting delayed, like, pinky swear. It’s dropping September 15, and you’ll be able to buy it in stores.
A MEGAMAN BY ANY OTHER NAME has some dope news afoot. The title is going to be getting its own fucking animated series. While Capcom tries to figure out how to ruin Resident Evil Gears of War further, the Brain behind Mega Man is just shitting on their lives. This could have all been theirs! But nah! And as well as revealing the animated series, they Mighty People are announcing a new round of crowdfunding.
Keiji Inafune making SPIRITUAL SUCCESSOR to ‘MEGA MAN’ called ‘MIGHTY NO. 9’; needs us to KICKSTART THIS BEAST
Keiji Inafune is leaning on us to help him out. Why should we lend a hand? The dude only created Mega Man. Now he wants to launch the spiritual successor to his iconic franchise, and it goes by the name of Mighty No. 9. The only problem? Dude needs like a solid milli. Milli buckos to get this fucker off the ground.
