Another Mighty No. 9 update came out this weekend on Comcept USA’s corresponding Kickstarter page, giving everyone a fresh glimpse at the game as well as detailing some changes that are coming to Beck’s partner, Call.

The bulk of the update came in the form of another gameplay video (embedded above) that sees Beck work his way through Mighty No. 2 and 5’s stages. While the bosses themselves are only briefly featured towards the end of the footage, you see key gameplay features again on display, like Beck’s various horizontal and vertical dash abilities.

The update also showed off a minor redesign of Call, Beck’s robotic assistant. Call became a playable character when the Kickstarter for Mighty No. 9 reached its $2,750,000 stretch goal, and because of this, some early animations of her running and crawling were also shown off. Since Call can’t perform a crouching dash like Beck, she resorts to crawling through tight  spaces, which is just one of the ways the two robots differ from each other.

The update also mentions that Keiji Inafune will be part of a panel at Anime Expo this weekend in Los Angeles, suggesting some more “mighty” information might come out of it.

Mighty No. 9 is currently slated for a spring 2015 release on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Linux, PS Vita, and Nintendo 3DS.

THE BUZZ: Tim Schafer let everyone know what some of the funds from his Kickstarter funded adventure game will be going to.

EGM’S TAKE: In an entertaining as always video, Tim Schafer let the universe know that aside from being available on Steam, the game will also be available on iOS and Android platforms. All the extra funds will also allow for English voice actors and for the text in the game to be translated into French, Italian, German, and Spanish.

As the project rapidly (it literally made another $1,000 in the time it took me to write this article) approaches the $1.9 million mark at the posting of this article, I for one cannot wait to see what Schafer and company can come up with considering that is near the same budget as Stacking.

What do you folks think? Are you amped for this game? How about that it will come to iOS and Android? Let us know what you think below!
