Watch The Mighty No. 9's artist, composer and creative lead return to 1987

A recent video roundtable discussion posted on the Kickstarter blog for The Mighty No. 9 takes creative lead Keiji Inafune, composer Manami Matsumae and designer Naoya "Tom Pon" Tomita back to 1987, the year in which their most famous collaboration, Capcom's Mega Man, was released.

The questions in the 25-minute video range from "What made you decide to enter the games industry?" to "If you could say anything to your 1987 self, what would it be?" Each is chosen at random with a dice roll. Press play above to see and hear the creative team's answers.

Developer Comcept USA funded the Megan Man spiritual successor on Kickstarter, where it earned more than $3.8 million — well beyond its $900,000 goal. Combined with its PayPal earnings, it earned more than $4 million as of October 2013.

The Mighty No. 9 is headed to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Linux, Mac, Windows PC, PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS. For more, you can watch some early game footage and check out Kenji Inafune designing the game's robot enemies.
