In an update posted on the game’s official website, Inti Creates and Comcpet shared a few more details about Mighty No. 9.
In terms of Beck’s maneuverability options, players will be able to run, dash, and blast. This includes a downwards dash and a backwards jump, director Koji Imaeda points out.
We also have a tiny bit of new story information as well:
In the game, Beck can run, dash and blast baddies with the best of them, but the truth is he’s a kind and somewhat timid robot. He was never able to display his true talents in the Battle Colosseum, and came to be seen as the weak link holding back his team of fellow Mighty Nos. Gradually he lost more and more self-confidence…until! The global robot rampage!!
Beck was the only robot who didn’t go berserk, which is why he alone is charged with the daunting task of resolving the crisis. At first Beck can’t shake his fears and anxiety, but with the encouragement of his creator Dr. White, he eventually resolves to take on the mission!
