Sadly, once Mighty No. 9 starts to become successful, Crapcom will try to sue the pants off of Inafune and Comcept...
... However, with how little money they have and how much material for a truly damning case against them(not the least of which being legions of angry/cheated fans/would-be costumers), will they be willing to risk it?
Cancelling numerous Mega Man game projects and putting their blue bomber in the dark was Capcom's sin. Mighty no. 9 is their punishment (If not a lunatic who invades their corporate HQ to slaughter everyone inside is a bad idea for a punishment.) Mighty no. 9 is just the right punishment.
*currently sitting down watching the news when this comes on* What the f*ck? *mighty no 9 shows up and capcom blows up* f*ck you capcom. just simply f*ck you. a certain corperation just did the thing that capcom didn't.
Well from what I can tell CAPCOM is in a rut. It can't really advance the Megaman franchise because the entire Megaman franchise is simply moving forward and doing tiny experiments from time to time.
Nintendo, this sort of experimentation is their bread and butter. Hell they are willing to give a crazy chance as the Metroid Prime series showed us (and by god was it successful! I got both Prime and Echos!)!
