Mighty No. 9 Browser Game Now Available

Game based on Mighty No. 9 game controls with one mouse button

Comcept released the Mighty No. 9 Ganbare! Beck (Mighty No. 9 Go For It, Beck!) browser game on Yahoo! Japan on Monday. The game is based on Comcept's upcoming Mighty No. 9 game.

In the game, players control Beck in an attempt to defeat all of the Mighty Numbers bosses. The game is controlled with only the left mouse button, which allow players to jump or double jump to avoid projectiles.

Keiji Inafune (Megaman) and his company raised more than US$3.5 million in its crowdfunding campaign for the game in October 2013. The game was initially slated for this spring.

Comcept is partnering with game publisher Deep Silver to release the multi-platform video game for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The portable version for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita was slated to premiere after. The game's release has been delayed to the first quarter of 2016, after having previously been delayed to September.

The team stated that the game is already complete, but "there are still bugs and issues pertaining to the online features that are included in the game." Comcept has delayed the release date to fix these issues.

Comcept describes the game's story:

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. You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by the mysterious computer virus that caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk.

Tokyo-based CG animation company Digital Frontier is developing an animated series for a worldwide market. Legendary Digital Media is collaborating with Contradiction Films to develop a live-action film for digital distribution.
