IT’S BAAAAAA-AAAAAACK: RETURN OF THE MIGHTYCAST!
Once again we slip the bonds of the printed (web)page and enter a dimension of sound and pure energy… In other words, we made another podcast!
So put on those big ol’ Beck-style headphones and listen in as the regular 8-4 crew recaps all the community updates and events since the close of our Kickstarter campaign, then stick around for an all-new in-depth interview with Mighty No. 9 Director Koji Imaeda! Hear what’s been happening in development of the game over the last few months, and where it currently stands -- story elements and style, gameplay (dat dash? dat wall hang?), Inafune’s reaction to the first really playable versions, tandem boss attack possibilities, and more!

MIGHTY NO. 9 COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT!
Every hardened 2D platformer aficionado knows about the indie action-platformer hit La Mulana, right? Well yes or no, if you’re reading this you should be interested to hear that developer Nigoro just launched a Kickstarter campaign for a sequel, La-Mulana 2!
As the head of a Japanese indie studio himself, Inafune is 100% behind the project, as you can see in a video message he sent to support them, right here -- check it out, and the Kickstarter, and if you like what you see, show them some Mighty love! (｀_´)ゞ
