Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune hasn't exactly made it a state secret that his final days working at Capcom weren't great, and based on his newly announced blue bomber-esque game, Mighty No. 9, it looks like he's taking satisfaction in getting back to his better days the only way he can: wholesale borrowing the concepts he himself created.

Announced just minutes ago during a panel at PAX Prime, Inafune revealed the game, being developed by veteran Mega Man alums for the PC, as part of a Kickstarter. As of this writing the project had already raised almost $12,000, just over a tenth of their goal of nearly a million dollars.

While not a whole lot is known about Mighty No. 9 just yet, it's safe to say that this is basically the spiritual successor to Mega Man X, from the artwork down to what's been said about the design.
