Mega Man 2 composer Takashi Tateishi joins Mighty No. 9 project

Monday, 30th September 2013 14:33 GMT By Dave Cook

Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 project has secured Mega Man 2 composer Takashi Tateishi.

Insanely, the game’s Kickstarter page is still funding with 34 hours left on the clock. It’s made $3,028,976 of its initial $900,000 goal. So it’s a success then.

This page update confirms that Tateishi – who is now CEO of his own music business Most Company – has re-arranged his hectic schedule to allow him to work on the game’s score. He joins Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10 and Resident Evil composer Ippo Yamada, as well as Mighty No. 9′s main theme composer Manami Matsumae.

Tateishi did this, and it’s brilliant:

The update adds, “Tateishi-san’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! We hope you agree this is a really big deal, both to us personally as fans, and for the project overall.”

Mighty No 9. is due to release on PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. The campaign also has PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS as stretch goals.

    Megaman 2 has one of the best game soundtracks. Who needs 60fps @ 1080p :P

    This is going to be epic!

    Saw this in my activity feed and I was smiling from ear to ear. All of the classics are coming back, and even landing on the PC, all thanks to Kickstarter.

    This is perhaps the most exciting time to be a PC gamer. I feel happier about the state of affairs now than I have in years and years. This is really a fantastic time to be a gamer, and a PC gamer especially. I’m almost getting nostalgia from the home computer days, as it’s starting to feel like that.

    The times they are a-changin’. And this is why the PC will always continue to be alive and well, because it’s the only platform you can dev on, and then go from dev to release without jumping through any hoops. And no, that isn’t meant to be an insult to Mac or Linux users, because I use PC as a hardware umbrella term for the base platform we all use, rather than the OS sitting on top.

    Whatever OS you use, the PC is still the only machine in existence which allows open development like this. So the PC is going to still be “dying” for centuries to come!
