Mighty No. 7 Pays Homage to Zero and Mega Man X
Comcept has been hard at work on Mighty No. 9 since its announcement in 2013 and the finish line is now in sight.
After its long, crowdfunded journey, Comcept has been hard at work finishing up Mighty No. 9. Destructoid reports Comcept has released screenshots of what fans can expect some of Beck's gameplay to look like. It's surprising that these screenshots show a rather disappointing art style (especially compared to the game's concept or rather Comcept art), and it doesn't seem that it will be improved, being so close to the game's launch. With only a few months left, it seems the only thing the team has left to do for this spiritual successor to Mega Man would be to port it to its many different consoles.
You can check out the "Crimson Blade Master's" (Mighty No. 7) futuristic stage in the pictures below while we all wait for Mighty No. 9 to come out this April for PC, 3DS, PS Vita, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We should note that Mighty No. 7's stage looks like a tribute to the highway intro level from Mega Man X (look at the enemy in the first screen). No. 7 himself looks heavily inspired by the likes of Mega Man's rival, Proto Man, and Zero from the X series.
