Comcept CEO Keiji Inafune appeared at a GDC panel yesterday titled “Meanwhile, In Japan” to discuss the current state of Japanese game development, but that wasn’t the only news he made. Comcept has released a GDC video demonstrating alpha gameplay (meaning that the game is feature complete but doesn’t include the final assets) from Mighty No. 9, the company’s upcoming spiritual successor to Mega Man currently in development for a whopping 10 platforms.
The video highlights the game’s nine “Mighty” robots and showcases an experience that appears a lot more fleshed out than previously released clips—and a lot closer to Mega Man. And as an added bonus, Manami Matsumae’s rocking Mighty No. 9 theme plays throughout the entire 2-minute, 51-second clip.
