So, in case you missed it last weekend, Keiji Inafune announced at PAX that he is doing a KickStarter project for a new game he wants to make. As it turns out, that game is a spiritual successor to the beloved Mega Man series called Mighty No. 9. You can check out Jonathan Higgins’ Crowdfunding Spotlight about the game to learn more about it. In honor of this, the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) shall present to you a look back at some of the Blue Bomber’s glory days in this week’s Foreign Wrap-Up.
I’m cheating a little bit with this last one because it’s the only good non-Japanese Mega Man commercial I could find.
Here are the highlights from this past week.
More coverage from PAX 2013! We gave our impressions of Dying Light, Tiny Brains, Pixeljunk Inc., Teslagrad, Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, Electronic Super Joy, Hot Tin Roof, Tengami, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, Legend of Dungeon, Bayonetta 2, Hello Hero and The Wolves Among Us.
We were also fortunate enough to get an interview with TellTale, the developers of The Wolves Among Us, Osiris Studios, Carbon Games and Breadbrothers Games, as well as attend Inafune’s special PAX Panel. We even got some great cosplay pictures.
Square Enix acquired a trademark for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call. Is this a sequel to Theathrhythm or another remake?
Andy Na covers Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and Jonathan Higgins talks about GENERAL CHAOS II: Sons of Chaos in this week’s installments of Crowdfunding Spotlight.
