Can’t wait until 2015 to play Comcept’s Mighty No. 9? The Mega Man spiritual-successor “Beck” will be an additional character-costume in another title that Keiji Inafune is affiliated with- Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.
For those in need of a brief reminder, Mighty No. 9 is a spiritual-successor to the Mega Man franchise, lead by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and his development company Comcept; a very successful Kickstarter campaign ensured that a “new Blue Bomber” would come to platforms in 2015. While fans may have to wait more than a year to get their hands on Mighty No. 9, game protagonist “Beck” will have a playable cameo in the upcoming hack-n-slash Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z:
Ninja Gaiden Z is being co-developed by both Team Ninja and Comcept as a direct spin-off to the Ninja Gaiden series: Lead character Yaiba Kamikaze is the last surviving member of his clan…all of whom he murdered due to their inferiority. Yaiba encounters franchise protagonist Ryu Hayabusa, only to be killed and resurrected as a cyborg. In order to regain his lost power and fight Ryu once again, Yaiba must deal with a present zombie-outbreak:
While Mighty No. 9 isn’t due for quite some time, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z will release on 3/4/14 for PC, 360 and PS3.
