Fans have pledged in droves during the final hours of Mighty No. 9‘s Kickstarter, smashing through several stretch goals.
In the final day of Mighty No. 9‘s Kickstarter, fans have pledged in droves to smash through two very important stretch goals: PS4 + Xbox One versions, and 3DS + Vita versions. That’s right, Keiji Inafune’s Mega Man spiritual successor is now coming to every current and next-gen console and hand-held (with the exception of the Wii).
When the Kickstarter for Mighty No. 9 was first announced, fans threw money at their computer screens as hard as they could, smashing through stretch goals so fast, the developers had to add several new ones. Unfortunately, the pledges slowed from a gushing hose to a dripping tap, and it seemed that the next-gen stretch goals would not be reached before the end of the campaign.
But contrary to what Capcom may believe, people apparently really like Mega Man! So much that Mighty No. 9 has become the 3rd most-funded Kickstarter video game in history. Two new goals have been added in order to satisfy the insatiable appetite of Keiji Inafune fans: a Retro Chip-Tune style soundtrack at $3,800,000, and an online battle race mode at $4,000,000.
Earlier, the team announced that they would be going with the Unreal Engine 3 for the game, and produced a short 13 second engine test of what the game could potentially look like.
As of writing, you have but 10 hours to contribute to the game’s Kickstarter. The team is aiming for a November 2014 release date, at least for the PC version of the game.
