About This Game



Mighty No. 9 is a Japanese 2D Side-scrolling Action game that takes the best elements from 8 and 16-bit classics that you know and love and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh and amazing!

You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by a mysterious computer virus that has caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way through twelve stages using weapons and abilities stolen from your enemies to take down your fellow Mighty Number robots and confront the final evil that threatens the planet!

Every aspect of Mighty No. 9’s development—art, level design, music, programming, etc.—is being handled by veteran Japanese game creators with extensive experience in the genre, all the way up to and including the project’s leader, Keiji Inafune himself!

9 Mighty good reasons to care



Classic 2D Action: Transformed! Face off against your 8 Mighty brethren and unlock new transformations as you defeat them, granting you completely different skills and abilities!

Play through 12 Challenging Stages in a single player campaign that will put both your thumbs and action platforming abilities to the test!

Unlock the New Game+ to add an additional two extra difficulty levels for those who want an even Mightier challenge.

The Single Player Challenge mode with dozens of mini missions will fully test your action platforming skills.

Boss Rush Mode: Play through each of the game‘s bosses, back to back, with a clock ticking to keep track of your best time, so you can share, compare, and show off your skills to your friends and frienemies alike!

Show the world how Mighty you are in the 2 Player Online Race Battle where you compete online, racing through each stage together in a head to head battle - adding an all new twist on versus mode play that will give Mighty No. 9 life well beyond the single-player campaign!

2 Player Online Co-Op Challenge Mode: take on over a dozen missions online with a friend, playing as Beck and his partner, Call! Use Beck and Call’s different powers together in order to defeat these special challenges!

Leaderboards & Rankings: Use Beck's Absorption Dash skill in tandem with his abilities & transformations to chain together combos and perfect your run-throughs to earn those glorious high scores and elusive S-Ranks!

Toggle between regular and 8-bit music: this game is a veritable who’s who of veteran game composers - Manami Matsumae, Takeshi Tateishi, Ippo Yamada, so we thought, why not tap into that retro vibe? As such, Mighty No. 9 features an optional chiptune version of the entire game soundtrack which you can toggle on and off!

This game did not live up to what most of us hardcore Mega Man fans expected out of this title.

It's like the developers completely forgot what makes Mega Man fun.
The level design ranges from tolerable, to bland, to downright awful.
Level design is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of a title like this.
The boss battles are also very important for this style of game, and not even that was done right.

Unfortunately, this game is generally an incredible bore. Not only that, but it's aesthetically bland in every corner. The levels are bland, enemy design is bland, main characters are bland... and, boy, the voice acting and cutscenes are just... awful.

I would struggle to find something positive to say about this game. Many of the mechanics that differentiate itself from classic Mega Man just feel like random additions that don't even belong. A combo meter?... why? I never once felt like the combo meter mattered or added anything special. Hell, not even the music in this game is memorable. Did no one on the team even care about what they were creating? Who was the game even aimed at? And even if I were to treat it as it's own thing, it's still not a good game. It's still bland, boring, and uninspired.

I really hope this game doesn't have a sequel. They need to go back to the drawing board.
Even then, I'd find it hard to trust Inafune on any other game deemed as a Mega Man successor.

Backed on Kickstarter, what a let down.... This is NOT Megaman!
For a project with ~$4 Million budget, it is hard to tell where that money went.
The Linux version was released over a month after the release date.
The levels are low-poly and graphically mediocre at best, poor level design and lack of attention to detail, no love or polish was given to this game.
The controls are for a game-pad, they do not work that well on a computer, I have to continually mash my left mouse button to fire multiple projectiles.
Keiji Inafune and his team should be ashamed of themselves, you have lost a potential future customer.
I wouldn't even recommend this game to a 3 year old, let alone a fan of Megaman.
If a refund was possible, I would happily take it, together with an apology! :(

In spite of the rocky and now-infamous Kickstarter history surrounding this game, I came into as a $20 experience of a Megaman-like game. Megaman was never a particularly large or perfect game series to me, and so I can't say I was disappointed in Mighty Number 9.

It's a fun run-and-jump shooter using a dash mechanic to mix it up and introduce a bit more depth and movement capability than in traditional Megaman games (if anything, it's a mix of the Megaman Zero design with some of the traditional games). When I discovered that I could continuously dash in mid-air and didn't need to directly hit an enemy to absorb it, it felt like there was a new amount of energy to the experience and gave me a number of options to dealing with the challenges. The main story mode is short, and lacks in production values, but has some good touches to it that lends personality to the Mighty Numbers and kicks off a universe that I would be interested in seeing grow.

Replayability helps this game a lot, and I'd say your enjoyment stems from how much you like pushing yourself to complete challenges and perfect various stages. There are various things that pull the game back, but the most egregious ones are surface level; if the look of the game doesn't bug you, then give it a shot. I've only completed the game once so far and put time into boss rush mode, but I can see myself playing Mighty Number 9 again and again.

Ok so I have an SSD, 16 GB of RAM, and Windows 10 with Core i7, also playing using an Nvidia videocard 4GB so basically I can play any game on ultra graphics, this is the result I got while trying to play this game:

1.- The game crashed MY COMPUTER after I first switch the settings to full screen mode.

2.- The game crashed MY COMPUTER after 1 minute of intro gameplay while on full screen mode.

3.- The game crashed MY COMPUTER after I switch back to windowed mode.

4.- The game crashed MY COMPUTER after I retry playing it again.

5.- The game crashed MY COMPUTER after I changed its compatibility and run it on admin mode.

6.- The game crashed MY COMPUTER after I reinstalled it and set all the settings back to default.

So not even 3 minutes of real gameplay and I already had to FORCE TURN OFF my computer so many times over this game?
I waited for this game since it was a Kick starter thing, I even preordered it and got the special DLC.

And yes, I had to play the game again until I complete the 5 minutes, followed by another computer crash and a bug that added a lot of game time recorded on my Steam when I closed it so I could type this review.

Uninstalled and don't ever want to hear a thing about Mighty No 9 again.

I have to start review by saying how disappointed I am. I have been playing Mega Man games since first NES game was released. Hearing that new game was being made by some of old guys I eagerly waited to play it. Game seems to get everything wrong. It's tries to be fast paced but level design breaks this flow with screen being locked in place or something else stopping your progress. Whole movement feels unresponsive which has been one of best things in Mega Man games. Graphics style is just horrible and seems to be targeted to little kids. Some of the backgounds are messy making it hard to read where you can move causing you to accidently die. I would recommend staying far a way from this game and instead go and buy Mega Man Legacy collection.

I.... don't have much to say that everyone else has said already about this game... I played it, beaten it, and.... just can't bring myself to play it anymore.... I still need to finish Ray's story, which in essense is a speedrun since your health constantly drains unless you kill others to drain them.

Anyways, this game, if I could give it a neutral rating I would, but.... since it's a thumbs up or thumbs down I will have to give it a thumbs down. It's forgettable, annoying at times, and... only fun for some of the time. Also, STILL waiting on the physical disk copy I ordered when I helped kickstart this game. At this point, though, I guess I don't mind if I never get it due to the game being so forgettable...

This game does have some good things going for it. It feels nostalgic, like it's trying to be a throwback to the better days of gaming, but just misses it by adding in looping levels with no checkpoints until you get to the boss, annoying deaths, annoying voices (except Steve Blum... he was alright), and a picture show of an ending that really felt worse than an aristocrats joke.

4.9 out of 10...

I was one of the unfortunate suckers that funded this game on Kickstarter.

Here's my decree and why I am somewhat filled with investor's remorse:

The game is slow.

If you have ever played Mega/Rockman, which, I assume those who bought it have, due to it's status as the Spiritual Successor, then you will notice that Beck is much slower than Rock.

Don't get me wrong, the game is actually good lookin'. It has it's degree of difficulty, and it has some decent tunes. However, Mighty No. 9 is just... painfully slow. There's none of the fast paced action that Megaman is known for.

Spend the $20 if you wish, however, I suggest buying Capcom's "Mega Man Legacy Collection" over Mr. Inafune's game. It's a port of all the NES games, but in HD.

I preordered Might No.9, and was excited for a SIMILAR game to MegaMan. I knew it was very hard to compeat to MegaMan 2 or 3, but I was excited to play this game that was LIKE MegaMan!

I'm up to Dyna, I plan on completing the game but I felt this was somewhat necessary
The first 3 stages (counting the tutorial), the game has been running fine. Smooth 60 fps, sound playing correctly, that kinda thing. I get to Dyna, specifically the boss fight but a little drop prior, and I get a horribly jittery 20-40 fps with choppy sounds playing as well. The longer the fight went on, the worse it seemed to get.
Other than that, the game does seem okay. It's very challenging. I'll update this once I finish the game.

Not sure why there's so much hate on this game. It reminds me of the early megaman games from the NES in so many ways. Lots of instant-death traps, frustration in some areas, but also very fun and satisfying. I totally recommend it for someone looking to capture the feel of the old school megaman games, but not so much for the X, Zero, Zx, Legends, etc. series.

Bad optimization, bland design (early screenshots looked good). Disclaimer: I backed the kickstarter (Mega Man fan). Horrible stutter during key points, especially when you meet the sword wielding / slash bot while you are hoping on cards on a freeway... So much potential, skip this one.

-----Because i didn't experience any glitches with my time playing it, i recommend this game for a few reasons------

1. same concept of megaman
2. some cool new mechanics
3. it's a megaman game

REASONS TO DISLIKE

1. glitches (if you have any)
2. graphics
3. not as fun as a real megaman game

CONCLUSION

if you have always loved megaman and can get past the minor imperfections, go do yourself a favor and buy this game

i hope they make a sequal, BUT please address the issues we had in this game and make it a spiritual successor

On the contrary of Megaman fans, I like this game a lot. It brought an interesting redesign of Megaman into the ring again. Of course, I am judging this gameplay wise over how Megaman-ish it is. Granted, it is quite unoriginal to reskin Megaman and go from there, but this game is still fun.

I grew up playing the NES Mega Man games and I thought this would scratch the itch, but it doesn't. The mechanics are wonky and unnecessary. The controls aren't tight. I'd easily say go play the Mega Man legacy bundle if you're looking for the old school itch to be scratched. I wanted to like this a lot, but I'm walking away from it having played 2/3s of the game.

This is such a poorly developed game....

- Poorly developed levels, graphics, scenarios, storyline.

Serious let down, should have just stuck with retro graphics for an jap indie company. Where did all that fund money go to???? taking employees to soapland??!

Holy mother of god, I have not seen such a quarterly-baked game with such good funding since....ever. =.=
I cannot even begin to describe what a waste of my backer money this was...
1. really bad controls, the game is built only for a controller (keyboard support is rudimentary)
2. Did i tell you the english dub sounds so corny?>??
3. OMFG, level design is so bad....imagine 20th century mario. levels are all linear, there are no hidden easter eggs, no special achievements and no secrets. Most collectibles are on the road to endgame; very visible.
4. graphics.... something from around the 2001s would have simiar graphics to this. And I thought PC games have made SO MUCH progress since then. Polygons and rough 2nd draft models. On higher resolutions, other than the 1st time opening of 1280x720, almost all 3D objects particularly the avatar (which you will lead on a lackluster quest and see ALL the time) becomes somewhat low res...
5. Okay, if you didn't find the level design the game mechanics isn't helping neither. because of the speed of your fall and jumps it's actually difficult to time your shots for those small annoying enemies (at least the ones with small surface areas facing you). You will get tired of tapping attack key.
6. alright, if that isn't bad enough...you must know that the japanese developers are very well known for visual novels, and what does visual novels' main selling points: art and story.
Mighty No. 9 has neither of these aspects. How could you screw up such a GENERIC/STEREOTYPICAL story in this game when you have so much background on producing polished stories???!!!

Anyway, Attention buyers don't even buy this on a 75% off discount it's not worth your time, instead pick up The Last Remnant which is Beyond Godly level game compared to this.
