Mighty No. 9 to Potentially Receive “Ray” DLC if Funding Goal is Met

“Zero-like” rival “Ray” plus an additional stage are in the works if the $190,000 goal is met

Mighty No. 9

 Though not yet released, the upcoming Mega Man spiritual successor “Mighty No. 9” already has DLC in the works. Announced by the developer, Comcept, Mighty No. 9 DLC will be available for all to download (free of charge for backers) if the company can raise a mighty $190,000 via “slacker backers” by the end of 2014. Backers will receive the content for free sometime in 2015.

Comcept insists that “none of the developers have or would begin working in earnest on this DLC until their work is done on the Mighty No. 9 retail release.”

Much like how “Zero” in the beginning of the “Mega Man X” series, Ray will be presented as a rival of MN9’s protagonist Beck. Ray is “a lone wolf character with no siblings” and “a robot with a big hole in its chest where its essential core should be.” The hole in Ray’s chest signifies that he is “slowly deteriorating over time.” He will have the same absorption ability that Beck does, but comes off as vampire-like due to the fact that he must absorb other robots in order to survive.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
