Did you happen to watch the Mighty No 9’s trailer yesterday? We’ve included it at the bottom of this article, make sure you watch it because it is really something special. The trailer has become infamous on YouTube, amassing over nine thousand (honestly, I didn’t mean to do that) thumbs down votes. According to a tweet by Takuya Aizu, the CEO of Inti Creates (co-creators of the game), it sounds like the trailer was created by Deep Silver, the publisher of the Mighty No 9.
If you’ve seen the trailer, you’ll know exactly why the video is receiving so much criticism. Some of dialogue in the trailer is just sad. “You can absorb their power-ups, stuff that will make you faster and stronger, and make the bad guys cry like an anime fan on prom night.” spewed the voice actor. Takuya Aizu can’t believe what he witnessed in the trailer,: “What the hell was Deep Silver thinking making a crappy PV like this?! Unforgivable.”
The Mighty No 9 had a Kickstarter campaign back in September 2013 that managed to raise over four million dollars. The game was originally planned to release in April 2015, but there have been several delays to the game, including a third delay to the game back in January 2016. The Mighty No 9 is seen as the spiritual successor to Mega Man thanks to the development team featuring several Mega Man developers, including the legendary Keiji Inafune.
The Mighty No 9 is scheduled to release on June 21st for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
