Mighty No. 9 Animated Series Announced

By Ishaan . July 5, 2014 . 9:47pm

 

Mighty No. 9 is getting a CG-animated series that will be produced by Digital Frontier, a company that does production work on motion pictures, games, TV shows, exhibitions and more. The series is planned for release in 2016, and is described as an “action-packed comedy aimed at kids 6-11”.

 

Digital Frontier are currently in talks with partners to decide upon the series’ showrunner and director. Animation production for the series will be managed in-house at Digital Frontier itself.

 

Digital Frontier say they’re currently planning a simultaneous worldwide release for the show, but territory-specific details have yet to be announced.

    I know it sounds crazy, but maybe they should finish the game first.

    • Craig

      The show won’t even be out until 2016.
      The game is planned for 2015.

      • Tinye

        Thank you for saying this

      • Shippoyasha

        Add a little delay and VOILA. Suddenly it’s a whole different picture.

        I don’t really care either way as long as they are good.

    • BlinkingRune

      No, if they want to hit hard with a new franchise, planning the show right now is the best thing they can do.

    • Impressionnant

      That’s crazy talk.

    • melvin2898

      They have so much money…They have to use it lol

      • Testsubject909

        And they’re already using it all on the game. This is done by an external source, another company. They’ve been approached by various groups who wants in on this y’know…

    • Testsubject909

      Different company working on the animated series, not Comcept itself.

  • Highasthesky

    I want Call to be a deadpan character like Raven from teen titans.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      No way in hell that is happening. Just look at her

      • Highasthesky

        I’m not saying what’s going to happen, i’m stating what i want to happen.

    • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

      Perhaps at start. IIRC, she’s devoid of human emotion, but will change as the game progresses.

      • Highasthesky

        That’s what i’m hoping for :)

  • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

    Well, nice to hear an animated series for this game. Probably a promotional campaign to attract more fans and build up hype prior to the game’s release come next year.

  • LordHyper

    An animated series now? Oh geez, I hope that Mighty No. 9 lives up to its hype.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Prepare for a new Gutsman’s Ass meme.

  • Raltrios
  • Michael Connell

    I wonder how this is going to compare to the Megaman cartoon…which I barely remember. Maybe I should rewatch it on youtube

  • Go2hell66

    A little unnecessary but okay…
    So whens the Gunvolt animated series :D

    • Kroz

      ^
      THIS!

  • Jettythesunfish

    SUPER FIGHTING ROBOT! NUMBER NINE!

    • Testsubject909

      You mean MIGHTY FIGHTING ROBOT! NUMBER NINE!

      Can’t forget the word Mighty now.

  • urbanscholar

    That teaser was way more entertaining than I thought it would be. Put a smile on my face

  • Tyler Beale

    Shit, seriously? *imagines Capcom facepalming themselves….even though I know they’re smiling on the inside*

    • Elizabeth ‘Ely’ Moreno

      Capcom totally would say that they should have done a series aimed at kids -3-0, because that’s the kind of decisions Capcom does nowadays.

    • William Carpenter

      I don’t think Capcom is even going to notice.

  • DragKudo

    Did they change his color?

  • Cephrien

    What the hell.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Could be worse. I mean, they could have made the bad guys from the game his best friends, given him powers that clearly just rip-off Mario, thrown in a bunch of unfunny butt jokes, and had a god-awful theme song with lyrics that just repeat “The Beck is Back!” over and over.

    I mean, what series would be dumb enough to do that? :B

    • AkuLord3

      NAH man that was super SERIOUS unlike this…like how controlling a power plant enables an evil scientist to control electronic stuff…AND NON ELECTRONIC STUFF : P.

    • Göran Isacson

      Okay I gotta ask, as someone who didn’t see that particular show: is this a reference to the Ruby-Spears Megaman cartoon, or something else?

      • Spirit Macardi

        No, It’s in reference to a certain other CG videogame-based cartoon that’s currently running on Disney XD.

        I loved the original Mega Man cartoon. It took liberties with the source material definitely, but it was still awesome and totally delivered on its premise.

        Honestly this trailer reminds me quite a bit of ShiftyLook’s former Bravoman cartoon, which is a good thing to me. That cartoon was hilarious and it really deserved a full budget. If this carries on that legacy, then I have no problem~

  • nororu

    when i saw sonic boom i thought that i saw everything in this world but i was wrong that was awesome front this. seriously guys what is this? i hope they do not release this looks weird :/

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      Excuse you. Some of us actually like Sonic Boom.

      Also, hoping they don’t release this because it looks weird? Shame on you!

  • Mika Moreno

    I want to have good hopes for this, but video games animated into TV shows don’t usually turn out well, so I’m scared…

    Oh god… I can’t be the only one who thinks that trailer is bad…

    • Goufunaki

      The crowd at Anime Expo quite enjoyed it. I’m curious to see how it turns out, myself.

    • Internet is Crash

      Remember the Blazblue anime? No? Yeah that didn’t exist

      • Sentsuizan_93

        I forgot that was a thing. xP

    • AkuLord3

      From many kind of things…even if the trailer looked awesome, doesn’t mean it be good HECK since you think its bad, it will probably be good/decent.

    • Testsubject909

      Well…

      Megaman and Megaman exe are animated TV series….

      Megaman season 2 suffered a lot though. But you can tell why season 2 suffered as all hell. It lost all focus on the robot masters and the robot master of the day.

      It instead involved stupid things like Dracula and mummies… Not robots. Just literally mythological creatures. The animation also suddenly changed a lot. You could tell that season 1 was animated by Japan and season 2 was picked up entirely by America.

  • Justin Graham

    I don’t think this is going to end well. I could be wrong (I hope I’m wrong), but I’ve just got a bad feeling about this.

  • Ein

    “aimed at kids 6-11″
    Seriously? Now I`m disappointed

    • William Carpenter

      Were you expecting any different? It’s a game about cute robots. Not everything needs to be catered to big boys. The game was fan-funded by people who loved Mega Man growing up, now let the cartoon bring in a new generation of Mighty No. 9 fans.

      • shafiq95

        There’s something called all-ages. Even shows about cute robots can appeal to adults and kids if they actually expand their target demographic.

        • neocatzon

          Well, MLP and Transformers are a good examples no matter how many flak the former takes.

        • William Carpenter

          I guess I am passed the point where this is the sort of show that I expect to appeal to me and will actually want to sit and watch. I just feel like my spare time can be better spent elsewhere, so if they want to focus on the kids, that’s fine to me. But, hey, different strokes.

    • Ralek

      You don’t like Disney/Pixar/Laika movies then ? =(

    • Testsubject909

      Why?

      Megaman anime and megaman games have been aimed at kids 6-11.

      I see nothing wrong here….

      Well. Other then you having some odd desires… What? You wanted to see blood, guts, carnage, decapitations, burn victims and all them R only rated stuff?

      If it’s aimed for kids, that’s fine. It can still tackle serious subject matters. And while we are lacking shows that do that with kid shows nowadays, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we won’t see some of that with this show.

  • Ethan_Twain

    It’s not normal for a show to be announced before either a director OR a showrunner have been attached to the project is it?

    It’s not normal for a TV show licensing a video game product to come out well after the video game itself releases is it?

    I am skeptical that this will be good, and I am skeptical that this will find an audience. Cute teaser though. I wonder if there’s no lines for the character because they don’t have a voice actor yet, or if they’re gonna try and run some sort of weird silent protagonist deal.

    • Shippoyasha

      Doesn’t seem that crazy to me, when so many games in the 80s and 90s were doing this stuff. This kind of feels oldschool to me.

  • idrawrobots

    Gross.

    • Testsubject909

      See response to Volta.

      Alternatively. I’m just amused at the dick jokes I can make about Beck’s limp water gun.

  • Volta

    Sorry, but being totally honest here, this animated series just looks awful.

    • Testsubject909

      Elaborate?

      • Volta

        - Crapy 3D animation, check.
        - Crapy Beck design, check.
        - Crapy silly personallity for the character trope, check.
        - Crapy movie trailer narrator, check.

        - Introduction presenting a future of destruccion and violence to then go with something silly for kids, check.

        If I remember more I will continue but what’s the point? Only fanboys will be defending Comcept, this horrible pitch and their second funding campaing.

        This is like that horrible megaman american cartoon all over again. The story presented initially by Comcept permits for a better animation series than this IMO.

    • Yan Zhao

      You do realize this 3D video was just a PITCH for the idea right?

      • Volta

        And does that give it the rights to look awful?

        • Yan Zhao

          For starters, it throws your entire complain irrelevant because this is NOT what the animated series will look like?

  • shafiq95

    Should have made an anime instead…

    • AkuLord3

      Acting like there aren’t 3D cartoon/animes shows in japan…yup NOTHING LIKE THAT exist. Seriously it could have been drawn stuff that would have been cool but that doesn’t matter to much.

      • Astrotrain

        2D please.

        • Velen (Not WoW)

          Not happening pal.

        • Testsubject909

          Your better bet is 3D that looks like 2D. See Odin Sphere or Valkyria Chronicles. Or maybe Arpeggio of Blue Steel if you want an actual anime example.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwENz04T7h4

    • John Diamond

      as much as i’d like it to be anime, cartoon cg is always always cheaper and quicker than hiring people to draw things out

    • Testsubject909

      Money.

      All about the funding.

  • William Carpenter

    I am a bit disappointed that it’s CG, but that trailer was a lot cuter than I was expecting. Beck showed a lot of personality, and that’s cool.

  • TiamatNM

    It looks pretty awful to me but it does say it is aimed at kids 6-11 so…yea

    • Testsubject909

      It looked okay, not awful. It could be better for sure.

      But it’s just a teaser. Who knows what the end result will be like.

      Plus, in the end, the real winner is whether or not they have a good writer.

  • Ixbran

    wow … interesting opening …

    “We built robots to destroy and maim each other, and now they are turning on us so they can be free from having to destroy and maim each other.”

    Why are we rooting for humanity again?

  • AkuLord3

    Show in 3D, everyone whines. Show for ages 6-11, everyone whines (there’s always a cartoons for 30-40 year olds…OH WAIT no those were shows when we were 6-11, MMM i wonder what they’re doing :B).
    But yeah looks fine, can’t say much but i’m interested and shows the tone the series is going for…JUST LIKE CLASSIC MEGAMAN, funny but with some serious moments.

    • Shippoyasha

      I am not so sure with them showing that extremely early footage and to be frank, it looks wonky as all hell and Beck has a weird uncanny valley coloring to him.

      But yeah, if it’s made for kids, I can kind of understand it. The art style and animation just isn’t clicking for me yet. But it’s only a teaser.

      The TMNT CGI cartoon that started in 2012 still looks pretty weird with the design at times but that is one of my all time favorites now. So who knows.

      • Ralek

        Yap with sharp writing and humor like the new TMNT I’m all for it, despite the animation still not being that great, the villain design is actually worse though… still the show is great fun. I really hope someday to see a claymation version of TMNT … or maybe even of this for that matter. Someone should give Laika a call !!

  • Randgriz

    Im interested to see what Inafune envisions for the Mighty No.9 franchise, i thought the game was supposed to be for the Megaman hardcore demographic but judging by this additional property its a childrens thing too as well?

    Makes me wonder if this show is reflective of the game in anyway when it comes to accessibility.

    Im interested to see how this pans out.

    • Testsubject909

      If you look at Megaman, the franchise, in general.

      It’s for kids.

      I was a kid when I played Megaman.

      I was a pre-teen when I played Megaman X.

      I was a young adult when I played Megaman ZX.

      And now, we’ll have kids who’ll be picking up Mighty No. 9 and who’ll become as hardcore a gamer as we are.

      Pluuuus….. The Megaman cartoons, all of them, regular, .exe. They’re all aimed for kids.

      I fail to see where you view kid-friendly megaman as not hardcore.

  • lel

    Yeaaaah im sticking with the game, thank you.

    • Testsubject909

      Your choice.

      But if you go back to look at the original Megaman show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ufVQIUEiYc

      This was made for kids. And may I remind you… The Wii U Smash Bros Invitational. People love that stuff.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wnnv5zySAk

      Your loss. But in general, our gain.

      • lel

        Right in the childhood! ill give it a try if beck show does have an amazing intro like that.

      • Matty

        I remember that in the smash thing.. Was kind of cringeworthy to be honest.

  • melvin2898

    They got so much money…They can do a lot.

    • Suriel Cruz

      Yet again, they want more. xD
      This look fun.

      • Anime10121

        Not for this, the Kickstarter and this series are completely separate from one another…

      • Testsubject909

        They want more, which gives us more. I’ll take it.

    • Testsubject909

      From what I’ve gathered, this isn’t a product of Comcept or Inafune. They were approached by a company who wanted to make this.

      So the funding for this isn’t from Comcept. That said, I’d imagine the revenue of this also wouldn’t go to Comcept. At least not in full, perhaps partially, for the intellectual rights and licensing.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Well this put a little smile on my face. Poor narrator. XD
    Though I’m well out of the intended target audience, it’d be interesting to see how this pans out.

    • Anime10121

      I’m even further out of the intended audience, never stopped me before from enjoying something though: ;)

  • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

    I think its adorable. I can see myself sitting with my kid watching this and enjoy it.

    • Testsubject909

      Fine fathering there. Keep it up.

      • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

        I think its fine to show my kid this. I mean it seems all innocent. I grew up with megaman and not have I once think of it any less. Maybe 7&8….. But that’s that.

        • Testsubject909

          Well. Megaman 7 and 8 is Megaman 7 and 8.

          And Clown Man really wanted to grope Megaman’s balls with that underground arm attack….

          • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

            ……… Uh….. I dont remember that kind sir…….

          • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

            I mean did that happen in x 7&8? cause that be…. Odd

          • Testsubject909

            This guy:
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xy5NheEQa5I

            One of his attacks is shoving his hands into the ground and his hands pop out underneath where you were previously standing at the time, with his fingers groping as his attack.

          • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

            Ah then….. Dear god….. It was that traumatic

          • Testsubject909

            Sorry for bringing up memories that you must’ve selectively blocked off…

            Oh and. I also remember this.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcZn4SdQn4E

            Though it wasn’t as long in the game.

          • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

            ……… Good on you sir Test….

          • Testsubject909

            Also, in honor of you mentioning Megaman 8.

            We cannot wet dis fual into doctow wahwee’s hands!

          • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

            You certainly dont let up do you hahaha. Also been my favourite commentor in siliconera haha

          • Testsubject909

            Glad I can entertain.

            You won’t find me posting in the articles as often as I used to during my first two years in Siliconera. I’m mostly just hanging out in the Open Threads nowadays.

          • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

            Yeah I noticed that. I always find you either putting out strong points and valid reasons in your post and not one have i ever thought of it as well opened as you. I would buy you a beer i could to ask more opinion on other games and such.

          • Testsubject909

            I have my moments of hardheadedness myself. But I’m self-aware of that.

  • MSJ

    I’m down so long as this and the game turn out good.

    • Testsubject909

      Yup. That’s the only thing to worry about.

      The game looks like it’s well underway though from the video set in the other article.

  • Testsubject909

    This seems like a fine thing.

    Actually this is a great thing.

    Kids these days…. Have a horrible selection of shows. No joke. The quality of shows for kids have dropped with time, and having a show like this? I for one don’t mind.

    We had our Megaman when we grew up. And it was awesome. Singing about the super fighting robot and all that.

    If this turns out good, then it’s all positive for the Mighty No. 9 franchise.

    And for the people who’ve got it up their asses because it’s aimed for kids.

    The hell do you think Megaman was mainly marketed towards for the larger part of it’s existence? And yet it’s still a hardcore awesome series. Stop trying to feel like you’re an adult and just be one. So it’s aimed for kids? That’s family friendly, that’s all.

    Megaman is family friendly. The show, the games. It’s always been an E rated game. The shows have always been G rated (or 8+, shut up).

    So in the end, doesn’t that mean there’s no issue here?

    • HarakiriKami

      Aimed at kids=//=family friendly

      Zelda is family friendly, Rayman is family friendly. Spawn is not family friendly and My LIttle Pony is aimed at little girls

      Alot of “kid’s show’s” these days is full of dumb slapstick humor, overly sarcastic and rude characters, weird instances of innuendo

      I’d rather watch pokemon, that show still manages to teach core values no matter how much of a idiot Ash is lol.

      • Kyle15

        These “kids shows” sound no more different than those of the early 90s.

        • HarakiriKami

          Yeah thats when they started going down hill.

          • Kyle15

            Oh

      • Crimson_Cloud

        My Little Pony is all ages man… for all AGES. Just check the web, it’s true. ;p

      • Testsubject909

        Eh… you shouldn’t have mentioned MLP.

        And a lot of kid’s shows these days aren’t even to the level of dumb slapstick humor. Just crappy slapstick humor. Dumb slapstick would be appreciated at this point.

        And Pokemon… core values…

        ….

        eh….

        sorta? There’s still the whole issue of “I’ll send my friend pet to beat you up!” at every episode…

    • Volta

      By your logic, for something to be directed to a kids audience it has to be silly and idiotic then? Give more credit to kids dude, I agree there’s a lot of crapy shows for kids these days, but this one looks the same to me.

      • Testsubject909

        We don’t know anything yet.

        The premise was actually pretty damn fucking dark by the way. “We created these robots to beat each other up for our entertainment. Now they’re revolting and we’re in risk of dying and this is our last line of defense” and we see a goofball.

        Yeah, it contrasts the dark mood with some silly. But it doesn’t remove the fact that the situation they present is dire. And for a kid show? Yikes.

  • Blick Winkel

    It’s like the good old days where games were marketed to children, but difficult even for adults to beat.

  • charles

    Ugh, Know your audience… This better be as good as NT warrior. I don’t want to be watching something like Pokemon. Why is it targeted for 6 – 11…. How about teens? That way, kids can still watch, just like Naruto or Bleach…

    Make it something that would be popular that’ll lead up to Mighty No.9 Legends… cause that better happen. Or else >:(

    • HarakiriKami

      Because 8 year olds like watching dumb crap like Chowder and Flapjack nowadays

      • Kyle15

        Someone has clearly never watched Chowder and Flapjack. loloololololl

        • HarakiriKami

          Flapjack is beyond terrible and chowder is just, aimless fat kid does a thing.

          I’ve seen enough episodes to know they bore me to tears lol

          • Kyle15

            Someone never watched Chowder.

          • HarakiriKami

            No i erased the schnitzels and the fat fairies and the weird chefs from my mind with brain bleach because cheese is BAD.

          • Kyle15

            But cheese is good. O:

      • http://playstationallstars.wikia.com/wiki/PlayStation_All-Stars_Wiki Sackchief

        Flapjack is one of the best shows CN has ever had. It’s unique and has a great art style.

    • Testsubject909

      Well. Again. Megaman history.

      The great majority of Megaman has always been targeted for kids, especially the animation. Like the original Super Fighting Robot Megaman and Megaman EXE.

      You’re just whining because whining at this point. “Know your audience” they know.

      • charles

        Like i said, it hope its as good as NT Warrior, not ilke pokemon. Because I can’t stand pokemon. Although, those origins episodes were great. I’m just saying targeting it towards teens would seem safe. Because teen cartoon tend to drawn in the young crowd also.

  • Guest

    They’re really going out of their way to milk Beck, aren’t they?

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

      The more the merrier.

  • http://www.thejaystack.com/ Jon Stachewicz

    The models look gross, the animation is stiff and Beck doesn’t really convey much of a memorable personality. I guess that means it’s no worse than any other Mega Man animated series but I’ll pass

    • SwiggitySwag

      It’s a teaser trailer for a kids show that’s barely in pre-production at this stage. What were you honestly expecting?

      • Matty

        Don’t mind him… that’s just how Megaman fans act…

        • HarakiriKami

          I didnt even grow up with Megaman yo,

          Stop assuming shit trick shaggy. Li’OL Mac Daddy gonna show you how we groove in this part of town.

          You cant deny the fact that he has a crank on his head is beyond stupid

      • HarakiriKami

        For kids show’s these days not to be utter shit.

        • SwiggitySwag

          This is a teaser trailer to announce they’re producing one. I don’t know how you can automatically decide it’s shit before ever seeing it.

          • HarakiriKami

            It doesnt give me good feelings bro

          • Keyboardcrash

            Teaser is created to excite people and make them eagerly await for it while not showing much hence the word “tease”. If it’s not a teaser it’s called an announcement. If it failed to excite people then it failed. Advertising 101

            It’s not teasing the product, it’s teasing an actual trailer. They’re done as an announcement. Like how at the moment they announced the show it had a teaser trailer to go alongside it saying it’ll be out in 2016.

            I’ve never been excited by 40-60 seconds of nothing. I know how the internet loves to blow their load at the slightest inkling, but that doesn’t make it effective.

            You don’t make a teaser for a trailer because a trailer is not a product. It’s like making a fan work of a fan work. What happens if there’s no original source? A trailer cannot be a product. Learn your advertising

          • SwiggitySwag

            Well you have no idea what you’re talking about so I’m going to leave it here. Good luck with your career in advertising, I’m sure you’ll do wonderfully well since you know exactly what you’re talking about and aren’t wrong at every corner with analogies that wouldn’t make sense even in the right context.

        If a teaser doesn’t excite then it’s failed its one job. It’s not my job as a consumer to make excuses for sub par work

        • SwiggitySwag

          I’d make the argument that if a teaser trailer gets you excited then you’re easily excited. The only thing a teaser trailer does is tell you something will be made at somepoint in time without showing you anything inside the actual product itself.

  • RagingTiger44

    It seems like the trailer was trying too hard to be funny. Hopefully the actual show is good.

    • Crimson_Cloud

      Agreed. It tried so hard that it was almost embarrassing to watch. I would give a thumbs up for animated but for this… eh, I’ll skip it.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    I don’t know how CG blew up in the west. Most CG is just ugly. I have not watched a CG film in probably 10 years. One of the worst forms of animation. The characters are just not interesting in CG. Most have blown up baloon bodies, big noses, and sausage fingers. I know there are some that actually look cool but as I said most is just ugly and uninteresting.

      I don’t know how CG blew up in the west. Most CG is just ugly.

      Tell me about. I don’t mind CG movies, but CG shows i hate. I admit it, i unfairly hate them. I don’t know why, but i just prefer when things are hand drawn. I don’t know if i would call it the the worst form of animation, but it’s definitely not my favorite.

      Still, lets wait for an actual episode to air.

      • Christopher Nunes

        What of Penguins and Monsters VS Aliens? The movies were in CG and I don’t see why the shows would not be in CG.

        I don’t mind CG for these kinds of show and I do like them, but I do prefer seeing the traditional 2D hand-drawn art.

        • http://playstationallstars.wikia.com/wiki/PlayStation_All-Stars_Wiki Sackchief

          If you notice, the Dreamworks CG shows feature much lower quality animation than their film counterparts. They aren’t nearly as good looking.

          • Christopher Nunes

            You can’t expect them to fund the shows to have the same high quality as the movies, movies take a lot of time and money to make and for a TV series to continue in an orderly fashion and have it in good time that have to keep the cost low.

            It would be great to see the series in the same high quality as the movies, but it’s not possible hence why it’s low budget.

            Them’s the breaks.

    • http://playstationallstars.wikia.com/wiki/PlayStation_All-Stars_Wiki Sackchief

      Seriously. Nickelodeon is mostly to blame since most of their new shows are like this. It’s just really ugly.

    • Testsubject909

      I think it’s cost.

      3D animation is much cheaper.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    The concept art for the animated series looks better than the actual series. Look at those sausage fingers

    • Testsubject909

      Yeah, that concept image does look far nicer then the end result below.

      But I’d imagine cost effectiveness is what ultimately led them to create what’s below.

  • HarakiriKami

    Oh great, Im getting Sonic Boom vibes. Is the game gonna be shit too?

  • ZnTxn

    I hope this is like Ruby-Spears Megaman. I loved that thing as a kid!

  • http://tikantz.wix.com/tikkart ibroid

    Well……, sonic boom suddenly looks awesome

  • ShadowDivz

    Im not a fan of CGi shows. (I hate them for no reason), but the comedy in this seems good at least, il be sure to give it a watch.

    Becks transformation seem pretty cool and well done.

  • kenshinx13

    Well given that the show has 2 years to develop, I hope they touch up the design a bit, looks kinda.. idk how to describe it.. rubbery? Just looks cheap as it is. But more than likely this is just an initial look

    Edit: Though i think i figured out one thing about this Beck design that is what’s bugging me. His eyes are too small. Or at least the Iris’s (spelling?). In his character art his eyes explode with that green.

  • Γεώργιος Αρχαιοκαπηλίδης

    “American Kirby is Hardcore” once again?

  • Hyero

    I’ve seen a few good CG things in the past, but overall it’s normally a bad experience. I’d rather have it regularly animated.

  • http://playstationallstars.wikia.com/wiki/PlayStation_All-Stars_Wiki Sackchief

    Ugh, CG shows are the worst. It should just be a cartoon.

  • GuyAlpha

    “Unlikely hero”, huh? Pretty generic concept for a cartoon nowadays, honestly. Beck never really came off as an inexperienced and incompetent type of character from his official art. Its kind of jarring.

    • RedFayt

      Yeah, really not a big fan of that at all. They just made Beck so uncool. Bleh. Generic clumsy unlikely hero, I think I’ll stay away from this so it doesn’t ruin my image of him.

  • Vash bane

    well thanks to the comments I learned something new. I always thought 3D animation costs more than hand drawn cartoons……that explains all that princess and tinkle bell stuff a certain someone loves so much >.>

    still didn’t expect to see this tho (that or I haven’t paid all that much attention to the news about this series/game)

    • Spider-Man

      I really hope you’re not referring to THAT “Tinkle Bell”…cause if you are, I love those “animations.” ;)

      • ShadowDivz

        I really hope you guys aren’t talking about what i think you’re talking about. Because that would bug me.
