The video below shows off the moves of protagonist Beck — one of the Mighty Numbers, a group of powerful robots — and a handful of his transformations. Beck cycles through the power of several different robots that harness machine guns and spikes, the powers of water and ice and a lethal-looking sword, among others. Viewers also get a quick look at two of the game's bosses — Mighty No. 2 and Mighty No. 5. — and how Beck can battle them.
Around the 50-second mark, viewers can briefly ogle gameplay for Call, Beck's equally-robotic gal companion. Like Beck, she can run, jump and scale walls, as well as propel herself across short distances with a jetpack on her back. Unlike Beck, however, she's a little less excitable and is more in tune with her robot nature — read more on that in our interview with the team designing the Mighty No. 9 cartoon.
Mighty No. 9 is currently slated to launch in 2015 for Linux, Mac, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
