Mighty No. 9 video shows in-engine footage, game uses Unreal Engine
In an update on Mighty No. 9′s Kickstarter page, Inti Creates has confirmed the platformer will be using Epic’s Unreal Engine. The post also showed work-in-progress footage from the game; head through the break for more.
According to the post, this video was made in just seven days to see if Unreal Engine will be a viable option for the team.
It adds, “Let’s be 100% clear (caps lock on!): THE GAME WILL NOT NECESSARILY LOOK LIKE THIS VIDEO, MOVE LIKE THIS VIDEO, OR ACT LIKE THIS VIDEO — THIS IS A COMPLETELY ROUGH TEST ONLY, MADE IN LITERALLY ONE WEEK, USING ALL PLACEHOLDER ASSETS AND ANIMATION.”
Here’s the video:
The project has amassed $3,059,472 with 32hours to go at the time of writing, and should the project reach its $3,300,000 stretch goal, the developer will release Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game.
