I... just... what!? Even the hair, red eyes and green clothing...

Okay then. When is my totally-isn't-just-kidding Battle Network coming out?

Wow, that is seriously underwhelming.

I thought they'd take this opportunity to create something new and refreshing, with the character designs meant to evoke nostalgia, but this is looking way too close to a rip-off. There are too many parallels for me to mention, although the DiggDelvers name and the fact that "Roll"'s parents went missing are just too much. Mighty No. 9 can be seen as a new entry following an entire genre of platformers; this is an outright Legends-wannabe.

Also, the anime project being handled separately is disapointing. It looks like they're simply pulling a few common characters and a basic world, instead of trying to draw strong parallels between the two. They explain how they do this for artistic freedom, but it remains me way too much of those anime series "based" off videogames that outright change the personality of core characters and don't even try to, at the very least, keep the same voice actors for consistency's sake.

This sounds like a pass for me.

Now that is a bit better. They should have had part of that available as promo footage from day 1, but better late than never. Not everyone is familiar with the Legends gameplay, having a sample can definitely help.

"Better late than never" when it's clearly never going to hit it's funding goal unless Comcept just funnels their own money into it last minute

edit: nvm lol https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mightyno9/red-ash-the-indelible-legend/posts/1308824?ref=backer_project_updat e

SO BASICALLY all this kickstarter has done is show capcom that there is in fact no audience for Legends. THANKS INAFUNE
