Over the weekend, game development legend Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept announced a Kickstarter crowd-funding project called Mighty No. 9, a brand new side-scrolling action platform game that takes heavy doses of inspiration from Mega Man (a series Inafune helped create) wrapped in what he’s calling “revolutionary” new ideas.
The main character for Mighty No. 9, Beck, is also very inspired by the design of Mega Man but the game’s name could have easily been some or other variant of the classic series, like ‘Super Boy’ or ‘Mecha Man’ or something else that might have baited a lawsuit from Capcom.
What current and classic game franchises would you like to be made by another team with new ideas applied, and what awesome (fake) name would you give this game?
