We all know what Comcept’s Mighty No. 9, headed by Keiji Inafune, really is- it’s a Mega Man game in all but name. It looks like Mega Man, it plays like Mega Man, it is even being headed by the same guy who created Mega Man in the first place.
That said, the similarities were sometimes a bit too obvious. Perhaps so blatant that even Capcom couldn’t ignore them for any longer. What exactly went down between Capcom and Comcept we don’t know (maybe the threat of a lawsuit?), but the long and short of it is, as you can see in the image above, Mighty No. 9’s Beck looks a whole lot less like Mega Man now than he did before.
