The Genesis of Mighty No. 9's Beck

Today's Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter update focuses on none other than the main man himself: Beck! Director Koji Imaeda and character designer Kimo Kimo bring us an in-depth look at Beck's creation, with plenty of concept art to check out.

Above is only a small sampling from the pens at Inti Creates. Here, we can really see the "Mega Man" in Beck's design philosophy. It appears a design similar to Star Force's Mega Man was once considered (complete with Omega-Xis). Among other potential designs, throwbacks to Mega Man X, Mega Man.EXE, and even Model ZX were penciled too.

There's a whole lot more to take in, so please head over to today's post for the scoop! Once you scope things out, hit up the comments below. In light of these concepts, how do you feel about Beck's final design?

  1. I can't tell you how amused I am to see 'Bad Box Art Mighty No. 9'.

  2. final design is awful. Should have gone with exe.

    1. Your opinion and face are awful.

    2. WoW, the EXE one looks so nasty.

  3. I dont like the final design at all.

  4. The final design is what I expect when they announced last month. It is almost like Megaman Clone. Good job! More tradition!

  5. Ha ha, everyone over at the Kickstarter page is saying they love the cape.



    .........I do too.

  6. They should add some of the Mega Man-esque concept art designs in as alternate costumes. Then again, Capcom might sue.

  7. There are definitely some in there I like better than what they picked.
