Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune’s spiritual successor to the Blue Bomber, Mighty No. 9, has received a new trailer and the reaction hasn’t been good.
The latest trailer (below) currently has 5234 downvotes and only 583 upvotes on YouTube.
The overwhelming majority of the criticism seems to focus on its generic graphics, cringe-inducing dialogue, and atrocious voice-acting. The trailer’s narrator in particular makes some painfully unfunny jokes, like that your power-ups will “make the bad guys cry like an anime fan on prom night.” Eek!
“Wow. This is going to be shown in classrooms on how NOT to advertise your product from now on.,” said YouTuber DreamcastGuy.
“This is the worst marketing I have ever seen.,” chimed in NickonAquaMagna.
“The people that backed this must feel really dumb,” added YouTuber eight.
In all fairness, our Chris Donlan and Chris Bratt gave Mighty No. 9 a go last summer and found it very enjoyable.
Guess we’ll see how the final product stacks up upon its 24th June launch in the UK (or 21st June in North America) on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, Mac and Linux. (3DS and Vita ports to follow.)
