It looks like Sonic isn’t the only video game character who has a new animated series coming out soon. At the 2014 Anime Expo in Los Angeles yesterday Concept announced Mighty No. 9: The Animated Series to be released worldwide to tie in with the upcoming Wii U game from Keiji Inafune.
The show’s synopsis tells us that:
The story focuses on BECK, a weak transforming combat robot, who was made to fight in a combat robot league as a part of the MIGHTY NUMBERS, the strongest robots in the world. When Beck is the only robot spared from a virus that forces his teammates to destroy mankind, he has to find a way to overcome his own inadequacies so that he can stop them.
The lat we saw of Mighty No. 9, the upcoming Wii U game was coming along well, with new gameplay footage showing both going through a level and fighting a boss. The show is being produced by Digital Frontier, an animation company based in Tokyo.
It looks like the anime series is aimed at a younger audience, even though the game itself seems to have a broad appeal to all gamers. What do you think of the anime series and cartoons in general based on video games? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
