Japanese 2D Side-scrolling Action game that takes the best elements from 8 and 16-bit classics and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh and amazing! Every aspect of Mighty No. 9’s development—art, level design, music, programming, etc.—is being handled by veteran Japanese game creators with extensive experience in the genre, all the way up to and including the project’s leader, game industry legend, Keiji Inafune himself! In the year 20XX ---- breakthroughs in robotic technology have ushered in a new era of peace & prosperity. Violence is confined to the Battle Coliseum, where robot combatants face off in spectacular duels. Dr. White created 9 robot siblings known as the “Mighty Numbers”, who were the most popular and powerful team of robots in the Battle Coliseum and always in the top ranks. But, during one competition there was a cyber attack, infecting them with a computer virus causing them to become crazed and rampant.
