Keiji Inafune's Mighty No. 9 is getting a live-action spin-off. Contradiction Films, the same outfit responsible for the first season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, is in charge of production.

"We are building the story right now," Tim Carter, co-owner of Contradiction Films, told Electric Playground. "Inafune-san created [Mega Man], and he has now created Mighty Number 9. We don't have the rights to Mega Man, obviously, but we are working with him on a live action adaptation of it." Carter added, "I was a little apprehensive about it at first until I got his notes, and thought 'Dude, you should be working at Pixar!'"

No delivery method for the planned adaptation - digital release, a physical disc or some type of feature-length film - was announced. Mighty No. 9 began life as a project on Kickstarter and earned $3.8 million throughout its pledge drive. Mighty No. 9 is Inafune's spiritual successor to Mega Man and stars a robot named Beck - the ninth in a set of combat bots called The Mighty Number. After an evil computer virus infects Beck's fellow bots and all variety of machines across the world, Beck and his partner, Call, attempt to save the world.
