At the SGC 2014 convention hosted by ScrewAttack, Mighty No. 9 project lead Keiji Inafune conducted a Q&A with audience, during which he was asked if he would be interested in creating a Mighty No. 9 game in the style of Mega Man Legends.
Inafune provided an answer to the question, which was then relayed by his translator to the audience. Here’s what he said:
When [Inafune] thinks about Mighty No. 9, the series, he would love to see it go in different directions—any directions that would fit the series. And he just had a question: if you guys saw a Mega Man Legends-style Mighty game come up on Kickstarter, would you consider backing it?
The audience cheered in response to the quote, followed by Inafune saying a few more words. His translator conveyed his quote thusly:
He’ll think about it. So, just to be sure, nothing to announce today. Just to be sure. He’s got nothing to announce today, but the fact is, he just heard all of you shout out like that, so he’s definitely putting that in his pocket and taking it back with him.
Mighty No. 9 is presently in development with the goal of being released in Spring 2015.
