Keiji Inafune, mastermind of the Mega Man games, has spoken out about his successful Kickstarter game Mighty No. 9 and says that he plans to ‘betray the fans in a good way’.
Speaking at the DICE executive conference today Inafune spoke to Joystiq and had some interesting things to say:
“Although it has very many similar elements to past titles such as Mega Man, we’re trying to do something new with it. Something different, something that will, in a manner of speaking, betray the fans in a good way. Completely do something unexpected, as well as keeping that classic Japanese action that people are looking forward to.”
Who knows what Inafune means by this but I know it has already got some fans and backers worried. It’s hard to imagine how you can betray someone is a good way, hopefully he means Mighty No. 9 has some big surprises in store that will make it even better than some people hope. I can’t wait to see some actual gameplay from the game, I have a feeling that Mighty No. 9 will be amazing, hopefully Inafune can pull it off!
What do you think he means he means by this? Are you looking forward to Mighty No. 9? Please let me know in the comments!
