Mighty No. 9's Marketing Is Embarrassing To Everyone

“And make the bad guys cry like an anime fan on prom night,” says the cringey narrator in this new trailer for Mighty No. 9, a video game starring anime characters. It’s as horrible as it sounds.

One might think that, after several delays and a great deal of fan scepticism for Mighty No. 9 director Keiji Inafune thanks to all sorts of disastrous antics, publisher Deep Silver might take greater care to market this toward people with a love for old-school platformers. Instead, they seem to be aiming for the edgy ‘90s teen market. I sure hope this game doesn’t suck.
