"Might No. 9 The Animated Series" Gets It's First Trailer
Announced at Anime Expo earlier this week, Comcept announced that they are collaborating with Japanese animation company Digital Frontier to create Mighty No. 9: The Animated TV Series. For those of you unfamiliar with the project, Mighty No. 9 is the brainchild of former Capcom producer Keiji Inafune, a long time veteran who worked on projects including Onimusha, Megaman and Dead Rising.
Following a 23 year stint at the company, Inafune left to form Comcept and successfully utilized Kickstarter to fund a spiritual successor to Megaman, a franchise that continues to be neglected by Capcom.
The animated series will revolve around Beck, a transforming robot pitted against a combat robot league known as The Mighty Numbers. The animated show will focus on a target audience of 6-11 as well as fans, indicating that the show might be aiming for a mass audience reach to grow the Mighty No. 9 brand.
Digital Frontier will be taking care of the production of the animated series, best known for their work on Capcom tie in feature Resident Evil: Damnation as well as most of the cut scenes in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. This animated project kind of feels like a return to the animated video game show tie ins that dominated the 80's and 90's, which included some truly hilarious westernized takes on franchises like Mega Man, Street Fighter and Darkstalker.
