Mighty No. 9 was announced last year as a spiritual successor to the Mega Man series from Keiji Inafune, but that is not the only project he is overseeing. At Bit Summit, a game known as Azure Striker Gunvolt was announced as coming to the Nintendo 3DS this summer from Inti Creates, the studio that brought us Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10.
Keiji Inafune is said to be the executive producer of this project, while also sharing a good portion of the creative staff from Mighty No. 9. Like that game, Azure Striker Gunvolt seems to have a lot of similarities to the Mega Man series.
I personally cannot wait to get my hands on this one when it releases in the US, hopefully not too long after the Japanese release. You can check out the reveal trailer for the game below:
