Takashi Tateishi joins Ippo Yamada and Manami Matsumae for the soundtrack to Mega Man‘s spiritual successor.
Composer for classic chiptunes in Mega Man 2 Takashi Tateishi is now the CEO of his own company, but he has agreed to make time to work on the successful Kickstarter project, Mighty No. 9. He will be joining his “good friends,” Mega Man 1 composer Manami Matsumae and Inti Creates’ Ippo Yamada, who has written music for Mega Man 9 and 10. Matsumae has already created the Mighty No. 9 theme.
The announcement came in a Kickstarter update. “Tateishi’s tunes are the type you can’t get out of your head, the kind you find yourself humming in the shower, or covering in your band – it’s no accident they’ve become some of the best-known songs in all of gaming!” the post states. Those who pledge $40 or more to the project will receive a digital version of the full game soundtrack.
A Kickstarter update posted today reminded all interested backers that today that “the final day is nigh.” Comcept put out a vote for the heroine’s design, the first of a series of documentary episodes on the creation of the game, and a video of a rough engine test, using the Unreal Engine.
Funding for the project ends tomorrow at 8:19 pm EDT. Mighty No. 9 has surpassed $3 million so far. Another $300,000 will guarantee PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, and an additional $200,000 will clinch PS Vita and 3DS versions.
