Earlier this year at PAX Prime the creator of Mega Man, Keiji Inafune, made a huge announcement. He and a team of developers will be creating a spiritual successor to the Mega Man games, named Mighty No. 9! The project was put on Kickstarter and immediately received a positive reaction from fans. Within days the project was funded and in the during the entire campaign the game raised $3,845,170. Since it’s announcement, tons of fan art has been created of the main character, Beck. I decided that it was time I also share my excitement for the project with a MN9 cocktail. The cocktail, named after the star of the game, is a variation of the Mega Man X X-Buster cocktail that was served at the Fangamer X Attract Mode party at this year’s PAX Prime. Congratulations to both comcept and and fans for the successful fundraiser. Cheers!
