Mega Man’s spiritual successor, Mighty No. 9 didn’t have the best of launches yesterday. With Kickstarter backers not receiving their download codes on time, to boring and uninspired level design, the game isn’t being received well by fans.
Things got even worse when the best run official gaming franchise account on Twitter, Sonic The Hedgehog, decided to “congratulate” the game on its launch.
Congrats on the launch, @MightyNo9!

For context, in a launch stream for the game, Mighty No. 9 and Mega Man’s creator Keiji Inafune said that the release of Mighty No. 9 was “better than nothing”.
The guy running the Sonic Twitter account deserves a raise, get on it Sega.
What are your thoughts on this debacle? Personally the game’s release was disappointing if nothing else. I was never a huge Mega Man fan but seeing the once great franchise fall to where it is now, is just sad.
