Communi-Day+: A New Mighty Approaches!
Are you still feeling the HYPE, Mighties?
This update is hitting right after the game industry’s biggest event of the year, when hype levels are at their absolute highest! You may have noticed that Comcept had our own little nugget smack-dab in the middle of the Microsoft conference!
Look forward to seeing more information about ReCore in the coming months!
That said, you are all here for Mighty News, and this update has plenty of it! We are going to showcase some Mighty No. 9 art from our fans, and will also cover a recent check by Inafune of the RAY DLC content. Also, we have a new member on the Mighty Team, so an introduction is in order!

NEW STAFF AT COMCEPT
Hey there Mighties!
I am interrupting your regularly scheduled programming to introduce myself as the newest Producer at Comcept! I will be helping out with the the Mighty No. 9 community management as one of my responsibilities, so I wanted to dedicate a small part of this update to introducing myself!
My name is Josh Weatherford, and I joined the Comcept team in the middle of May. Before joining Comcept, I was working at another Osaka-based gaming company called Active Gaming Media. More specifically, I was the Project Director for the PLAYISM indie publishing brand. If you keep up-to-date on Japanese game Kickstarters, you might have seen my name pop up in relation to the La-Mulana 2 and NightCry projects, both of which I was involved in.
During my time there, I also published a large selection of indie games from both sides of the pond, and I am looking forward to utilizing the knowledge I learned over the years here at Comcept. My original background is in game localization, and I had a hand in the localization of dozens of games over the years.
It is truly exciting to have the chance to work with creators I have looked up to since I was a wee little one, and I am looking forward to the challenge that moving from a publishing role to a more creative oriented role will entail.
BONUS: RAY-NING ON IKEGAMI’S PARADE
It’s been awhile since our last ROM check in an update… almost five months, to be exact! As usual, the Inti team came to our offices and explained the state of the current ROM to Inafune.
This time we’re checking something all you Beckers have to look forward to: Ray’s gameplay! If you think her gameplay will be just a slight twist on Beck’s campaign, you’ve got another thing coming. Inafune seemed to enjoy himself, too, voicing his approval as he played (as well as a fair share of feedback, of course!).
The ROM has already been tweaked back at Inti Creates HQ, but this version still had some ultra-tough sections, so Inti Director Ikegami took the reins to show off certain aspects of the level.
They don’t call him the top Mighty No. 9 player in the world for nothing! All of the close calls and death-defying gameplay even got INAFKING caught up in the action, momentarily forgetting the task at hand. Still...
“We already fixed this, I swear!” lamented Director Ikegami, who couldn’t beat No. 5 even once with this version of Ray. I guess you’ll all have to see for yourselves how the fight turns out in the full version!
We’re still working on getting Ray pre-orders up in Japan, but for the rest of you non-backers we hope you give Ray a chance!
Until next time, Mighties!(｀_´)ゞ
