Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune’s personal Mega Man-like Kickstarter, is approaching release. The game’s English voice acting has just been recorded, so the team released the voice credits on their blog and boy does it look impressive. Beck is voiced by Yuri Lowenthal, the chords behind a lot of characters, including the Prince in several Prince of Persias, a few of Castlevania‘s Alucards, voices in Persona 3 and Persona 4, and no shortage of major anime roles. It also includes names such as Dave Whittenberg, Julie Nathanson, Mat Mercer, and Steve Blum, the voices of whom you have probably heard on more than one occasion throughout your life, whether you were aware of it or not.
The list is as follows:
Mighty No. 1 Pyrogen: Matt Mercer Mighty No. 2 Cryosphere: Paige King Mighty No. 3 Dynatron: Jan Johns Mighty No. 4 Seismic: Fred Tatasciore Mighty No. 5 Battalion: Brian. T. Delaney Mighty No. 6 Aviator: Mick Wingert Mighty No. 7 Brandish: JP Karliak Mighty No. 8 Countershade: Steve Blum Mighty No. 9 Beck: Yuri Lowenthal
Call: Julie Nathanson Dr. White: Jason Spisak Dr. Sanda: Dave Wittenberg Seijiro Sanda: Dave Wittenberg Mr. Graham: Scott Whyte Dr. Blackwell: Bob Joles
Not a bad list, by any means. Next are the Mighty Numbers, which are effectively Pokédex entries on all the Mighties. They really think of everything with these robots.
Mighty Numbers Database!
More than a few of you have pointed out that the Mighty Numbers wallpapers contain some kind of codename. That’s because every member of the team is more than just a number… they have their own names as well! And those of you who had a crack at the beta should also know that each of the Mighty Numbers goes by a nickname, too (just like family!).
We decided it’s about time to reveal all of the background data for the Mighty Numbers!
