Legendary Digital Media and Contradiction Films are working together to bring Comcept Inc’s Mighty No. 9 to the Silver scre… to digital platforms in the form of a live action movie! Contradiction Films have proved themselves capable of bring video game properties to live action with the highly enjoyable Dead Rising: Watchtower.
Coincidentally enough, Dead Rising and Mighty No. 9 are both creations of developer Keiji Inafune. Speaking of the deal, Inafune stated “This collaboration will give our creation the ability to reach people all over the world. Thanks to all of your support, we have fulfilled another one of our dreams.”
Mighty No. 9 is a platformer in the vein of Mega Man (also created by Inafune), which revolves around an android named Beck. When a computer virus attacks all of the other electronics in the world, it is up to Beck to save the day! Beck becomes a lo-fi experimental musician, who goes on to have a Grammy award winning career (*Editor’s Note: Wrong Beck!).
Mighty No. 9 is set to release on September 15, 2015. No word yet on the movies release or exact platforms.
