Mighty No. 9 has gotten a development update and a new screenshot released by Comcept’s Keiji Inafune.
Inafune stated that,
“The dash is a fundamental mechanic in Mighty No. 9, but it still isn’t fun to do on its own. Also, we should make the backward jump look more like a distinct, deliberate action — the current animation doesn’t really make that clear to the player.”
Comcept’s Director, Koji Imaeda, added,
“Gradually he lost more and more self-confidence…until the global robot rampage. He was never able to display his true talents in the Battle Colosseum, and came to be seen as the weak link holding back his team of fellow Mighty Nos.”
“Beck was the only robot who didn’t go berserk, which is why he alone is charged with the daunting task of resolving the crisis. At first Beck can’t shake his fears and anxiety, but with the encouragement of his creator Dr. White, he eventually resolves to take on the mission.”
