Sony Introduces Mighty No. 9 for PlayStation 3, Details Available

50°
29w ago - 8-4 Ltd Executive Director Mark MacDonald introduced Mighty No. 9 for PlayStation 3 today with details below.

To quote: What are you gonna be doing come Spring of 2015? No plans yet? Well here's one appointment to put on your calendar a bit early: Mighty No. 9!

Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game coming to the PlayStation 3 (and maybe PS4 and even Vita! But more on that later...) that harkens back to the best aspects of the old 8- and 16-bit classics many of us grew up with, only evolved and transformed into something only possible today.

As the titular hero (known as Beck), you'll need to run, jump, and blast your way through your fellow Mighty Number robots, stealing their powers to fuel your unique skill to transform your body into new shapes for added abilities!

Maybe your limbs could become giant magnets, enabling you to walk up walls or rip away enemy shields... Or maybe extendible spring-loaded hands would let you to activate far-away switches or work as a grappling hook...

Or a tank-like body might let you easily cross over spikes or push objects around the levels... These are just a few possibilities we're considering (the game is still in the design phase), but you get the idea!

You might know Mighty No. 9's...

Below are the details, to quote: Fighting and PS Vita fans, rejoice! If you follow great PS Vita games, you probably know that Legend of Raven, the high-speed, 2D fighter, is coming later this year. And if you don't know about Legend of Raven, where have you been?

Legend of Raven features an awesome, hard-rocking guitar soundtrack, beautifully drawn characters and backgrounds, and gameplay to rival some of the best 2D fighters available today.

Headed to PSN, Legend of Raven will give you guys and girls the opportunity to go head-to-head locally (via Ad Hoc) with your friends.

It's just like that, except without the shoulder-to-shoulder crowds. Literally, the in-game commentary will pop-up from time to time when you're clobbering an opponent with a vicious combo or finishing them off with a super move.

For those among us who want to learn a bit more about how the controls work, Legend of Raven features a four-button attack system and two varieties of punches and...
