NowGamer: "New footage from Mighty No 9 released by developers Comcept gives a peek at a couple of the game's bosses."
Looks great, but Keiji Inafune said so much about how the japanese games were not so good nowadays, even said that "japanese game is dead", let's see how great is Mighty No. 9. I don't think a market that stil delivers games like Metal Gear Solid 4, Suoer Mario Galaxy series, Skyward Sword, Ni No Kuni, Xenoblade, The Last Story, Bayonetta, Enslaved, Puppeteer, A Link Between Worlds, Catherine, can be considered "dead". We can say that had better times, specially with companies like Capcom and Square-Enix, but saying that is dead is too harsh. Phil Fish said the same thing, well, that's irrelevant, he is not important.
I wouldn't know but perhaps he just feels ashamed of some of the way the companies and people are behaving and creating. The way I think it is, as a former Catholic, when I would hear about some piece of crap molesting a kid or some talk of bigotry in the church(main reason I personally left) I would feel as if I were being betrayed by my people(sic). Now obviously the reasons I gave are a tad dramatized compared to simple video games. But considering Japanese *are infamously known for having high honor, and shame along with it, I am not sure his quotes are entirely ridiculous. In context of course. We're all a bit jaded. I used to believe and I felt as if I was pushed out of it. That can totally apply to Mr. Megaman himself.
He said it in context to what was being delivered at the time during 2008/2009 shortly after DMC4 was released and it was in comparison to what the West was doing, The western game development scene was fully embracing HD and trying new things while the Japanese game development was still struggling to leave behind some of the last generation tropes and pillars of development that was no longer proving to be popular or viable. It didn't help at all either that Capcom's offerings weren't really performing as best as they thought.
@Light i don't know why Japanese devs are cannibalizing themselves like that. That region use ti reign supreme in the market. Hell till this day my favorite games are from Jap devs. U.S and European devs aren't risky like Japanese devs are. With that said I hope they come together and make magic like they use to intead pushing others away. Mighty No.9 very fun.
Japanese Gaming is not what it used to be for the simple fact that Japanese Developers chose to westernize their franchises. BTW Enslaved is not a Japanese game. That game was made by a European developer.
When did Inafune say that? Can you give me a direct link of that actual quote because if I recollect he didn't say that exactly. I could be wrong but I just don't remember him saying it like that. If I remember correctly, he said the Japanese gaming industry is dying. http://www.vg247.com/2009/0... http://www.vg247.com/2013/0... Can anyone disagree with how poorly every console is selling there? I can't, he was completely right in predicting that with such a statement and I would think he knows considering he lives in Japan, is Japanese and more importantly is a Japanese developer. It is also hard to deny that when the numbers don't lie.
Good thing 2d platformers are still popular.
Looks like it's improved a lot.
The only thing I don't like is the character model. Doesn't have that much style and looks weird when running. Wish it could be 2D sprites, but whatever... I didn't support the kickstarter.
I want this game now! It's like my childhood all over again.
Looking so freaking good I wanna cry!
it has very good soundtrack but it seems a bit easy ..
"Looks kinda okay...but this gameplay is just....from the 80s." Aaaahh youtube comments, they never change huh.
Shovel knight...go play it.
Look Absolutely Awesome (gameplay, soundtrack...etc) but i hope there is a more difficult mode, i like Megaman X because its challenging :)
The musi, everything.. this is bought no question. Makes me think this is mega, and azure is zero....
Glad I helped kick start this, I am proud to have been a supporter. This will be a day one purchase. Classic megaman elements of platform, incredible music, updated gameplay, HD visuals....YES, YES YES!!!
Looking forward to it.
that looks good..
Looks great, on the right track.
