Mighty No. 9 Makes Its First Appearance In Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

By Spencer . December 12, 2013 . 1:58am


Mighty No. 9 surpassed its own Kickstarter goals and is in development, but we don’t have to wait until 2015 to meet Comcept’s new robotic hero. Beck will be in Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z as a crossover costume. The Mighty No.9 collaboration also includes a special zombie pack.


Why is this happening? Comcept, Keiji Inafune’s company, is working on Mighty No. 9 and co-developing Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z with Team Ninja.

        You’ve… obviously thought about this.

      • anthony apduhan

        Holy mother of… Do you know or do you even realize how much money, time, and licensing would cost if that crossover game had happened?!

        • GH56734

          Well, it’s possible to do a crossover with heroes from Shounen Jump OR (not AND) Sunday Magazine, as various Japan-only games already exist with the same permise (Nintendo’s Jump Ultimate Stars, Konami’s Sunday Vs Magazine, or Namco’s Jump VS and Banpersto’s Super Robot Taisen..).
          Of course western (crappy) crossovers exist (Nickelodeon series) and Disney have the Kingdom Hearts (and their own … not-fighter thing Disney Infinity).
          But all at once?
          Sailor Moon, and Disney for starters are a deal breaker already.

      • Shady Shariest

        Followed by a fusion of Morgan Freeman and Walt Disney?
        (Holy hell, you’ve thought about this :3)

      Imagine what would Megaman feel about it lol.

  • rekka_zan

    Somehow I find Beck’s smile a bit disturbing :))

    • Arcana Wiz

      it makes me remember the villager in Smash bros….

    • He loooves dem pain in one of the screenshot. Snrk.

    • Chido55

      He was born from the griefs of millions of fan, time to deliver.

      • I am the bone of my kickstarter
        steel is my body and backers are my blood

  • mockturtle

    This is beyond cool.

  • Nitraion

    Coming out like a boss…
    even his game hasn’t been released…

  • GH56734

    It almost seems like a Take That against Megaman’s cameo in Dead Rising 3 (both the game and the cameo) :P

  • Arcana Wiz

    Well, that was fast.

  • As much as.. Er… Odd Beck looks in a certain screenshot, this feature is akin to a taste of mighty thing to come. :)

    But, urgh, man… The official forums has been bloody recently. :c

    • Arcana Wiz

      wat happened?

      • Beckers have been divided into two sides; One perceiving the chosen Community Manager there not fit for the position, the others are somewhat supportive of her. There were even already a significant number who have decided to withdraw their funds just because of they do not see the mentioned CM fit and perceived her to be unqualified and accused of trying to pushing her agenda in the game.

        Personally, its just sad to see how a once united community devolve into a bickering civil war.

        • Arcana Wiz

          why? i mean what happened to them to say that she isnt fit? i mean how she can be biased? and pushing her agenda?

          • Guest

            To clarify this a bit more, this ‘Dina’ is a feminist and had the intention of changing Beck’s gender. Check out this monstrosity.

          • That is where the division amongst the Beckers rooted about. Without taking any sides and personally, I believe their grievances and concerns has valid basis, and should also be fairly treated as well as accommodated to.

          • Pdugna

            uggh what the fucking hell people….they already said in the kickstarter goals that a female role will be playable don’t ruin the male lead.

          • The War on Men ™ is real

          • GH56734

            Well, her ruining the game’s icon and identity (and one of the first things revealed actually) alone makes her not fit for the position, for starters.

          • LaserVision

            Read the article. Look at the screenshots. If the game’s icon stayed intact for a completely different game, then I don’t think there’s anything to worry about.

            Whatever though. First I’ve heard of this drama. People need to get lives.

          • Göran Isacson

            Holy shit she argues for Call to be playable or for there to be a possibility of lady-Beck skin. CALL THE NATIONAL GUARD.

            Sure looks like a bunch of Internet Nice Guys have far too thin skin for their own good.

          • Guest

            oh yeah, she also mentioned that she was never a Megaman fan. The horror.

          • César H. Sandoval

            People got her Twitter account and uncovered a lot of stuff that make her initial claims look like lies.
            -She got the job because of her Bf
            -She’s also desingning stuff and her art-styke doesn’t really fit Mn9 (She claims she’s not designing for that game)
            -She doesn’t even like the MM games
            -She’s some kind of super-feminist, who initially wanted “Beck” to have a sex-change if possible and is known for attacking games like Bayonetta and Suporting Beyond: Two Souls.
            -She deleted the dubious tweets, hiding information in panic is not really a good skill for a CM.

          • leingod

            First time I hear about this person, and I already hate her.

          • Guest

            A related video to this comment.

          • It doesnt matter which side of the argument you’re on, this kind of bitter, immature vitriol has no place in the discussion. If you’re not in support of Dina then that’s fine. Personally, I feel like there could have been a better pick for CM, if only because the community’s liaison is one with little experience with the series and MN9 is a project born entirely out of fan feedback and unrest surrounding the future of a once-beloved series. However, I would never stoop to calling someone who disagreed with me on this matter a “fucking retard” or any of the other slurs used in tthis video. It just makes you seem like yoi lack class, and how is anyone supposed to take that seriously

          • Guest

            I would be offended if I do care about the fiasco, but I don’t. Just sharing what I found over the issues. Man, I never stepped on the official forum either.

          • “Check out this monstrosity”
            “she was never a Megaman fan. The horror”
            “actually i d-dont care haha ^.^;;;”


          • Guest

            Glad to hear that, because I don’t really care either. Just sharing stuffs to the people who wanted to know. Heck, I never even stepped on the official forum.

          • She didn’t outright say she doesn’t like Mega Man, she said she lacks experience with the series, there’s a big difference. I’m not a fan of her myself but misinformation like this is how this argument has begun to spiral out of control.

            That or /v/ has already gotten tired of the Bravely Default Spats Fiasco of 2013 and they need to find another ‘blunder of le century’ to force

          • César H. Sandoval

            She made a tweet were she claims to even turning-off the Mn9 Livestream show because she found it Boring, A friend of hers says “I too don’t get the fuzz over that thing” and the she responds that she never played MM, but liked some other 2D games.

            But I do agree that some places like you said are turning this into some sort of apocalypse, way over the line.

          • British_Otaku

            Sounds pretty crazy, thanks for the heads up in advance of me visiting the forums again. I’ll avoid those threads if I can.

          • César H. Sandoval

            As you should if you want to conserve your sanity, I hope the news of the Beck Cameo and the 2nd round of Call voting make this issue fade away, I signed for a game, not internet drama.

        • Göran Isacson

          See, what I’m curious about is how people can withdraw their funds? Haven’t all the payments already been made? Like, isn’t it way too late already?

          • They can still opt for a refund via Amazon before the 30th from what I read. Many had done that already, sadly.

  • César H. Sandoval

    Bring it on, Dead Rising3!

  • neocatzon

    That last screenshot is highly disturbing.

  • hazelnut1112

    Glad this one is in the game, and just this design for the robot. Nothing more.

  • Yan Zhao

    lol awesome.

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester

    Screw that, I wanna see Mighty No.9 vs. Capcom! :D

  • bearmon2010

    No thanks. This game is too violent with too many blood. Thats silly, really!

  • artemisthemp

    This is a pretty cool cross over.
