Drum roll, please! 

The Mighty Community has spoken, and we have heard your Call!

It’s finally time to unveil the winner of the Call Vote, and so, by popular demand, I give you the results of the second Call Vote:

In 3rd place... Call H! (15.47% of the vote)

In 2nd place... Call E!! (41.14% of the vote)

And so, the winner of the second and final round of the Call design vote, scoring 43.39% of the votes and thus becoming the basis for our heroine in the final game --

Call F, by Inti Creates’ Yuuji Natsume!!!

 (above) Call F, by Yuuji Natsume of developer Inti Creates

Call F exits the Battle Colosseum triumphant, as the people cheer her on!!

We’d like to say thank you to all the Backers who contributed to making this second vote a great success! The battle got heated at times, but the Mighty Numbers stayed strong and campaigned through numerous threads to support their favorite Call! We couldn’t have done it without you, and the goodwill and enthusiasm surrounding this Poll! Thank you, Mighty Beckers!

What’s your take on the vote? Wish to laud the victor? Lament the vanquished? Let us know how you feel in the forums, KS comments section, and on Facebook and Twitter!

In other news, the New Year is almost upon us and we hope you’re ready to welcome it!

While you’ll want to have your eyes on the skies for the New Year’s Eve fireworks, you might want to peep at the forums too on January 1st for a little surprise! (Shhhh…)

      They should both be included in the game..
      The votes were close to a 50/50 anyways.
      Its a shame that a cool character design would be voted out based on 10%.

      I am OK with some people here...
      it would be very cool to choos)e the character design if possible in game (like the skins in guacamelee or blade kitten for example)

      I would like a revote, seeing how many people (me included) who forgot to vote, were going to vote for E, so it would have been even closer, but on the flip side, then if E won, I'm sure there would be just as many people who would argue against her.

      I like the idea Least Famous Steve has in mind. I like this design for sure, but I enjoyed the design idea of Call E the most. If there could be skins for the runners up for Call that could be unlocked ingame, that'd be really cool!

      Call H minority, my heart is with you.

      It would be cool to have unlockable skins for the other two runner-up designs.
      I think it would be a nice little "we didn't forget you" notion to the people who voted for them.

      Cool, that was my vote. Call E was pretty good (i didn't really like the feet tho) but i think this design is overall better.

      I voted H the first time for simplicity. I didn't bother voting the 2nd time since I've pretty much figured design F was going to win no matter what. XD

      Though, I wouldn't have minded F winning if she was given a different hairstyle. I actually liked the sketch of her sporting the "odango" look and wished she had that instead of the Roll ponytail.

      @Kenneth Newbery: Making a rant about people acting like children is not "owning", it's calling "point".
      People actually posted in the forums and socia networks that they are no longer interested in the game just because their choice didn't won. And that is just harsh. Apologies if you misunderstood my rant. My rant was only for those who are acting so childrish for a design that didn't win.

      I would definitely pay extra for the E design to be an alternate costume for Call. 2% is a close call by anybody's standards. Let the people who fund this game's creation have a say in keeping E in the game.

      I wanted to vote for E but that surveymonkey thing wouldn't work for me, it just kept saying I wasn't cleared to vote even after I'd signed up and everything. I was hoping it would clear up by vote time but I eventually forgot about it with the holiday stuff. Frankly I'm unhappy with this decision and I thought E fit better into the game's design and aesthetic, but whatever.

      @Matthew: Indeed! Poll is over, Call was chosen! ^^ Time to move on! Please read my post bellow (the big one, full of typos lol). We're with a campaign at official forum to try and have Call-E (Now called Echo by the community since the "Call" no longer is an option) a spot in the game! I'd really appreciate if you could support it! ^^
      .
      If you can support her being a playable side character, completely unrelated to Beck/Call to not affect their story/context, i'd appreciate even more! ^^ I'm not posting the topic link since it's at official forum (so might not be accessible) but i'd appreciate if you could post there or here your support so i can add you at next supporter tally! ^^
      .
      This invite also goes to Kenneth. Dragon, Lee and all other backers/non-backers willing to help Echo to be added to the game! ^^

      I picked F because I liked the design, don't really care if it looks similar to Roll. E was a runner up, but F had my heart.

      Not everyone can win the vote, so let's not get salty over it alright? What's done is done.

      Now, I DO hope that E would be an unlockable costume in the future...

      @Dragon Faku Are you really going to insult everyone and then say hear me out? Doesn't work like that, mate. You know what you're trying to do? You're trying to "own" people.

    23. Rix.small

      Creator Dragon Faku on January 3

      All i read here is "blablabla, im a little boy, Call F is a clone of Roll, boohoo, im going to end my life"
      Guys... hear me out before you try and "own me" with your "arguments".
      This is a freaking Megaman remake, i mean, yeah, new game, new name, whatever... it's a Megaman remake and we all know that.
      Now take a look at Beck and honestly tell me if he doesn't look like Megaman, but in a plain and simple look.
      Now Call F has the most familiar design, but to be completely honest, you guys only want something to make rule 34 of it. I mean, it's pretty obvious.
      Im pretty sure that you guys would react the same exact way if the contest was about Beck's design. "OMG, HE LOOKS JUST LIKE MEGAMAN, YOU COPYCATZ"
      And that's pretty sad, guys, instead of constantly giving judgement about how one design is better than the others, why dont think about the posibilities of what Call can do or what not.

      Creator Bruno Figueiredo on January 3

      Well, Call wars is over and the poll fulfilled it's robe, chosing the one and only to be known as Call.
      .
      Yet, at official MN9 forums we (not only E supporters but even several F and H supporters since it's no longer a competition) started a campaign to support Echo (the name community picked to her since she's no longer "Call-E") becoming a playable character (like Zero at MMX4, acting like a parallel for ce that only shares the same goals of Beck/Call team, not being related to them in any other way so she won't affect Beck/Call story in any way).
      .
      If you support this and have forum access, please post at "Keep Call-E alive" topic (soon to be renamed to "The Echo Chamber"...we just need to find a mod on to ask) that you support her as playable character!
      .
      And if you still don't have forum access or can't access it for a reason or another, post here that you support it! ^^ a reply with "+1" is enough! ^^ We also made a art repository at tumblr: http://echo-chamber-stuff.tumblr.com/ There's already some Call-E/Echo-related art there and as soon as some other artistis allow me to i might be posting a bunch more art from other community members! ^^
      .
      Let's drop the poll rivalry and embrace Echo as playable character! (`_´)ゞ

      H was by far the most original design. F was the most redundant design that cried "Roll" clone. What a shame.

      Creator Cameron Forrester on January 2

      Honestly, I picked E all the way, mainly because she looked like a fresh new face, F (like many have said before me) looks too much like an updated Roll clone, and to be honest, I think that's how she won, pure nostalgia. And considering the margin of which E won by, I hope that F get's introduced as like an alternative costume, maybe as an unlockable Item later on.

      Creator Dusty C on January 2

      I'll echo the common sentiments. A 2.25% difference between E and F when there was a third option doesn't guarantee you really got the popular demand.

      Creator James Ramanathan on January 1

      Call F's grown on me as a design, but this still doesn't make me any happier. Call E at least represented a fresh start, away from the sway of being a Megaman clone. Like every other bitter backer on this vote, however, I do wish the other Calls find a place in the game some way or another. Congratulations to Comcept and those that voted for Call F, either way.

      Creator John Harfouche on December 31

      Personally I think Beck the battle robot's sister looking like a secretary is sorta... sexist... That's why I voted F, because F looks like a battle robot.

      LET'S GO MIGHTY LETTER F!

      E is still a fantastic design though, wouldn't mind it as a tertiary character.

      Not happy with the community's design choice. Oh well, that is what I get for being less active. Dang job. Can we at least have her go against Pink Call now since that was the better design from the get go? This does not seem like an exciting character to play in mutiplayer...

      You know, given the nature of the costumes in E and F, I feel like the "field" outfit and "street" outfit approach could work.

      I'm not sure 2% difference is by popular demand. That sounds more like a margin of error, especially since there was a third candidate. Probably should have done a runoff election.

      Why not have F be her "field" outfit, and E be her outfit when she "calls" Beck over some long distance? That makes sense, and you don't have to do a ton of animation for the second outfit because you never see Call fighting in it.

      "While similar to MM, all aspects of MN9 are different enough to be their own thing. I wouldn't worry so much."

      Were different. I stress, were. It's become more and more Megaman-like over time. And it's at the point now where it's legally (not subjectively, no opinions here) close enough to Capcom's franchise that they could block the sale of this if they so chose.

      You can be an oblivious fan if you want, I choose to be a realist. Either Comcept is expecting this, or they're as oblivious as you are. If something is X close enough to Y, it's begging for litigation. Bethesda got on Mojang's case solely because their game was called Scrolls. With the someone arrogantly blatant airs of ripping off Capcom surrounding Mighty No. 9, you don't think that Capcom is going to sue them?

      Your world must be a lovelier, less legal, less corporate, less capitalistic, less property-obsessed place than mine. Can I come and live there?
