New Mighty No. 9 Trailer Shows Off Beck’s Rival, Ray

Comcept has shared a new trailer for Mighty No. 9.

Featured above, the new trailer introduces protagonist Beck’s rival, Ray, and all of the various moves and abilities that differentiate him from his blue counterpart.

Ray is included in the retail version of the game, alongside a new laboratory stage, a boss battle with Ray, and of course: the option to play as Ray instead of Beck.

Mighty No. 9 is launching across PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U on June 21st in North America and on June 24th worldwide. While the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U versions are getting retail versions, the rest are digital only. PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS versions are coming sometime later.

    Why does this sounds like Pokemon?

    Mighty Number Barf

    You know, I wanted this to be much different from Megaman. Familiar, but different. Making it exactly like Megaman was one of the reasons I had an initial disdain for it. I see Ray here and the first thing I think of is “Bass”. Now every time I see it it just looks worse. Like you’d be better off playing actual MM games.

    And yes, part of me is still salty over Call E not winning. A flashy original design over a Roll copy? Yes please.

    Pale imitation of Zero, but I suppose this is a better trailer than the last one. At this point I’m sure Beck is firing weaponised cringe.

    Is he really? I don’t understand the japanese but it seems like Ray is just some psychopath. Not some kind of Protoman or Zero.

    Even though this is a better trailer, game still looks like shit.

    I haven’t paid much attention to this game since its initial campaign, but why is this dude the alternate character and not Call? Wasn’t she a stretch goal?

    Wonder how cringeworthy this trailer will be… *plays* Mood music, no narrator, just showing the gameplay? What game is this again? A proper Mighty No 9 trailer needs to have some 90s Kid reject going “Duuuuuuuuuuuude this guy is the hypest shit bra, you’re gonna be so gnarly and tubular while you get jiggy with this radical game brah!”

    Awful fuckin’ audio mixing in that trailer. How the fuck are they managing to roll out such shit?

    Kicked Zeros edge up to 11 and turned him into a waifu; ugliest too.

    As someone who’s played MN9, the sad part is, by the looks of this trailer, she seems to play a fuck ton better than Beck, who’s clunky as shit, and his attacks are weak.

    You know what? The game actually looks fun when you’re playing as Ray, which makes the fact that it’s DLC a fucking insult.

    I think he means in terms of play style. The first thing I thought of when I saw them being controlled by the player, I just thought, “This is their imitation Zero isn’t it?” Ray looks the part anyway. Honestly her design looks like a slightly worse version of the “Zero series” Zero to me. Not exactly sure if they play just as good or if they’re worse then the X or Zero series Zero though. Man thats a lot of Zero’s.

    Unfortunately it was retarded.

  23. GamersBlogX

    I think she was a co-op thing? I thought that was the original stretch goal, I could totally be wrong though. I think Ray here is just supposed to be the other character with a different story, kind of Like how in Megaman and Bass, how Bass’s story was different from Megaman’s. Or like in X4, where X and Zero had different stories… As in Zero was the only one who got one.

    I know right? How do you manage to make Japanese voice acting sound THIS bad?

    Only Inafune could fuck up a robot brownfu… two of them in the same game no less.

    On a somewhat related note, here’s some more (leaked) gameplay of her:


    Channel has the final boss and everything up to it as well.

    Honestly i’m amazed at just how hard they keep on dropping their fucking spaghetti every new trailer harder than the last
    it’s like watching some sort of horrible trainwreck but instead of blood and gore it’s just millions of dollars being burnt

    It’s not exactly like MM though – it looks more like MM put through a woodchipper and then reassembled using an Ikea instruction manual.

    It’s also disc locked content.

    Disc locked content on a game that was kickstarted by idiots that foamed at the mouth from a certain mediocre fighting game having disc locked content.

    Honestly, I do feel bad for Megaman fans. All they wanted was a new game in that style. Capcom wasn’t gonna give it to them just to spite Inafune, and Inafune failed to deliver on most of his promises. Add to that all the delays and the mediocre looking gameplay, I can totally sympathize with them. After all, the first step in grief is always denial.
