Successor. Even Trigger thinks so.

Anyone who says ripoff has no idea what they're talking about.

I mean, it's made by the guy who made the series he's "ripping off"! How dare he use his own ideas!

Ehh, its technically not a ripoff imo since it's the same creator. But I feel its kinda devoid of any real creativity. Hopefully it's really good purely from a gameplay standpoint, but I don't feel an iota of creativity went into making the game.

It is probably because a lot of people (fans mostly) want a new Megaman, but Capcom seems to be busy doing something else.

People who think its a ripoff must thing Chrono Trigger ripped off Dragonbal Z's art style >_>

Well, I'm honestly fine with MN9 being made since I enjoy classic MM. But when I think of Spiritual Successor, I think of a game like Dark Souls. Take the same core concepts and some atmosphere elements to make a new game that has the feel of the old game but stands on its own. Mighty is pretty much a reskin of Megaman. I don't feel anything new from it at all.

Again, that doesn't make it a bad game by any stretch. I plan to buy it, in fact. But it's just not a spiritual successor in my books. Just a reskinning/rebranding.

If it wasn't being made by Inafune: Rip off

Since it is: Successor

Can somone rip off their own ideas?

You and I both know that this analogy doesn't work. Art Style =/= literally everything about the two games being exactly the same other than the Art Style.
