Inafune: Capcom Should Release a New Mega Man Alongside Mighty No. 9

Creator Keiji Inafune wants both games to exist for the benefit of gamers.

Keiji Inafune is on a pretty big high these days. His recent Kickstarter project Mighty No. 9, which aims to bring the mechanics that defined Mega Man and 16-bit side scrolling shooters to a new generation, managed to amass $1,714,959 thus far, surpassing its original $900,000 goal, with 29,763 backers behind it. Even more amazingly, there’s still 25 days left for the crowd-funding campaign, which shows no signs of slowing down.

Despite being a spiritual successor of sorts, Inafune wouldn’t mind if Capcom released a new Mega Man as Mighty No. 9 came to the market. Speaking to Kotaku, he stated that, “If the question is just, ‘Can they exist as two different franchises at the same time?’ then my answer is yes, of course. Capcom should be doing things with the Mega Man franchise just like we are with this original game.

“Ultimately, it would be great for the fans because then they would be able to play even double the content that they otherwise could. So, in this perspective, yes, please, let both games exist.”

Mighty No. 9 is currently set for PC, releasing for Steam and will head to home consoles, Mac and Linux as further stretch goals are met.
