Mighty No. 9 dominated Kickstarter, raising $4 million – 4.4 times its desired $900,000. But now released, all has not gone peachy for Keiji Inafune, with the game clocking in at an average review score of 5.5/10. IGN stated in its review “the soul of the blue bomber is nowhere to be found.” And it shows, with mediocre gameplay that doesn’t capture the essence of what made Mega Man great in the first place.
Keiji’s comment on the game’s reception astounded the most: “For now, this is what you see and what you get, for the Mighty No. 9 world. But, again, we can hope that if things go well, there’ll be sequels. Because I’ll tell you what, I’m not getting my 2D side-scrolling fill. And at the end of the day, even if it’s not perfect, it’s better than nothing. At least, that’s my opinion.”
It’s not better than nothing. You could play something much better!
