Capcom…its time. Its time that you finally stop blaming gamers, giving excuses, and give the fans what they want. With the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter over, dedicated gamers (who believe in the spirit of the Blue Bomber) have donated over $4,000,000 to Inafune to create Mighty No. 9. Each and every single goal was reached:

Clearly, there is a immense desire for more Megaman from gamers. But the company that owns Megaman, Capcom, is so intent on not giving gamers what they want. I would like to think that a company would understand that if they give gamers what they want, gamers will return that service with cash; but for some reason Capcom doesn’t understand this, and even goes out of their way to spite Megaman fans.

Firstly, when they cancelled Megaman Legends 3, Capcom blamed gamers:large

Secondly, when Capcom was asked why there was no Megaman in Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, the producer (Ryota Niitsuma) of the game stated that “Out of all of the requests we got for Capcom characters, he just didn’t enter the top part of the ranking. Unfortunately, he didn’t make the cut.” We know this to be untrue! Because on Capcom’s own poll, Megaman X was number one:

1)Mega Man X 2568 +542 (34.07%)
2)Phoenix Wright 2116 +251 (28.07%)
3)Strider 1865 +671 (24.74%)
4)Gene 1194 +82 (15.84%)
5)Frank West 1112 +2 (14.75%)
6)Vergil 1110 +38 (14.73%)
7)Juri 1062 +69 (14.09%)
8)B.B Hood 993 +26 (13.17%)
9)Classic Mega Man 967 +78 (12.83%)
10)Bass.EXE 889 +2 (11.79%)

In fact, a Megaman took the #1, #9, and #19 spot on Capcom’s own poll! Yet they claim he didn’t enter the top part of the ranking.

And lastly, when Megaman was rumored to be in Street Fighter X Tekken, gamers got really excited! Would it be Classic Megaman? Megaman X? Megaman EXE? Well, no one expected this instead:

Seriously, Capcom, I believe its time to listen to the gamers. You’re in a financial crisis because of your business practices; and gamers don’t trust you anymore. Just bear in mind, that where you fail, others will succeed. Where Megaman dies, his spirit shall rise!

Mighty No. 9 will be released on every platform: Xbox360, PS3, 3DS, PS Vita, Wii, WiiU, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A big thanks to all the gamers that helped contribute to one of the most anticipated games I’ve seen in a long time, and for helping prove Capcom wrong!

  1. I wonder what is going through capcoms mind right now, seeing every goal was quickly accomplished with over $4 million mega man fans donated

    Capcom’s loss is Keiji Inafune’s gain! There’s nothing I like more than sitting down and playing through an awesome sidescrolling, action game. I just hope Capcom doesn’t get lawyers involved.

    It’s clear Capcom doesn’t want to be involved with Megaman anymore. Don’t ask me why, but they keep avoiding him. It’s a miracle he got into the new SSBB game. This most likely won’t happen, but would be kickass if it happened: Capcom goes near-bankrupt, and Keiji would be able to buy out the Megaman trademark. Yes, most likely won’t happen, but it would still be a dream come true 🙂

    So… who’s the one who made the big mistake? cause it isn’t Capcom thats for sure

  8. NightmareSteam says:

    So… whos the one who made a huge mistake again? it isn’t capcom thats for sure

  9. Lol no Mighty No. 9 still hasn’t come out so no Capcom isn’t the one making a huge mistake

  10. Jack Swagger says:

    Guess you look stupid buddy. The game finaaly came out and it’s a huge turd. Also it doesn’t capture the spirit of Mega Man. Capcom is still in business gearing up for RE 7 and MH X. There’s a lesson to be learned here and the backers pretty much got screwed and they deserved it.
