Mighty No. 9: Call Vote Coming Next Week

 Illustrated by snakepixel

According to today's Mighty No. 9 community update, the vote on the design for Call, Beck’s plucky companion, is set to kick off next Friday, September 27th. Read on for the details.

  • We’ve been happy to see so much ongoing chatter about the upcoming vote on the design for Call, Beck’s female counterpart! After listening to community feedback and going over the idea with the commenters on our Kickstarter page, we’ve decided to make all the initial designs of Call line art -- so no coloring for now -- to remove factors like outfit appearance and hair color, etc. for the initial vote, so everyone can focus purely on which design they think is best!
  • Speaking of the Call vote: Our artists are already hard at work on their designs for our community-favorite heroine! The plan is to have several for all of you to choose from, right near the end of our Kickstarter campaign, as part of our update for Friday, September 27th. (This way we can also maximize the amount of backers we can include in the vote!) Then we’ll announce the results as part of our livestream in the final hours of our Kickstarter, on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 1st! The top three designs will all go on to the next round, where they will be colored and tweaked for another vote to take place on our (then newly-opened) community forums at the end of October / early November.

Goodness, we're really closing in on the home stretch! The date will be upon us before you know it. Of course, we'll be sure to remind you.

For more details, hit up today's Kickstarter update. And while you're there, be sure to read up on Makoto Yabe's involvement with WayForward's Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. It's mighty interesting!


  1. the Roll design has to win.

  2. I can only foresee Roll Call winning. Not that it is an entirely bad thing, but a bit more variety deriving away from Roll would be a little appreciated. Though I will admit, I do quite like Roll Call as much as the next guy.

    Funny how I'm calling her that. Sounds like role call...

  3. I personally like the Aero Call more. But there's no doubt Roll Call will win. I just hope AC, and the other designs get used for something.

  4. It's kind of funny, they're promoting the character design contest by putting the Roll Call up. Which is fine, because that's who I like! Pixiv artists seem to be following suit.

  5. I like Roll Call, but I'm hoping for the pigtailed version. It provides just enough distinction, while retaining the same general feel.

  6. The blonde Call design looks awesome! Can't wait to see the others!

  7. I like the lower center one, but I doubt she'll win... Hopefully the designs that don't win will still be used, but as like, NPCs or something.

  8. I like the one that has the beret and long purple hair. She reminds me of Iris.
