Mighty No. 9 beefs up its mode selection ahead of Feb. 9 launch

Mighty No. 9 from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and development studio Comcept will make its debut on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, 3DS, and PC come February 9. But today, you get to see what's coming with new footage of three extra modes in the game. There's Boss Rush, which has you taking on the game's toughest enemies back-to-back; Challenge, which will force you to become the best, most accurate energy-blasting android you can be; and Maniac, where just one hit means it's all over.

This new trailer is also the first time we've seen Mighty No. 9's multiplayer in action, and it looks pretty slick. Whether you want to team up with a friend in co-op mode or compete against them, you can do it. As the trailer points out, you can also play with strangers - including people with "creepy" names like "Vernon." (And if your name is Vernon and that's offensive to you, keep in mind this is coming from a robot named "Beck." I wouldn't take it to heart.)
