Mighty No. 9‘s recent update revealed some very interesting info, including Beck sporting a whole new color palette look, the results of Call’s weapon poll, and the reveal of the Japanese cover art.

First up, Beck’s new design is below:

Mighty No. 9You may wonder why the development team changed his design in the first place and for that, Director Koji Imaeda has the answer:

From the very beginning we designed Beck to have a neutral, grey base, with the idea of wanting to make something completely new and unique.

But development soldiered on, and as we approached the last leg, we started looking closer at Beck. As a protagonist that could absorb the abilities of his siblings and take on various forms, our image of his appropriate color shifted from ‘neutrality’ to ‘containing all possibilities’… and since white is a combination of all colors of light, we felt that would actually suit his character better! Hence, we went with the coloring change.

Next up, the results of the Call Weapon poll:

Mighty No. 9 (2)

So Call’s weapon will officially be the bow. Funny enough, that was also Roll.EXE’s weapon of choice in Battle Network.

Finally, the Japanese box art:

I absolutely love this design and hope it stays intact for the Western release.
