Mighty No. 9 had a rough development, to say the least. After for what seemed like an eternity of waiting Keiji Inafune’s spiritual successor to the Mega Man series finally saw the light of day.  Upon its release, the reception was mixed by the audience. What began as a passion project for longtime fans of Mega Man to indulge in given the fact that Capcom has basically killed off the blue bomber, this spiritual successor failed to live up to the high expectations.

Aside from mismanagement and lack of communication from the developers, over ambition with how many systems the game would release on, various technical issues with the console’s ports of the game, not to mention they tried to focus on another spiritual successor before finishing their current project. On top of that, the game was delayed partially due to the fact that they were working on a multiplayer feature, which no one asked for.
