Mighty No. 9 coming to PS Vita, 3DS, next-gen systems

Mighty No. 9 raised more than $4 million dollars via Kickstarter and PayPal when it closed last night, blasting past goals for next-gen and portable appearances. Keiji Inafune's spiritual successor to Mega Man will now arrive on 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

On top of additional platforms, several stretch goals for enhancing the game itself were met: those for an online co-op challenge mode, an intro stage, an optional retro chiptune soundtrack, and an online battle race mode, among others.

Its grand total doesn't quite top the reigning Kickstarter game king, Torment: Tides of Numenera, which raised $4.19 million on Kickstarter alone, but it's impressive nonetheless. "Mighty Beckers" should expect the game to be completed some time around April 2015, though with all these added features that date may slip significantly.

At least we can play it on just about any console whenever it gets here.

    I'll get it on Wii U, since it technically appears both in the big and small screen. Also to post some in game pics. Hehe.

    Thats fantastic but, eh, most games that are both on Vita and 3DS, tend to show the differences, the 3DS version isnt worth it, for me atleast, besides im gonna still buy on the other platforms i have

    I just can't wait for this game. Its gonna be amazing. See Capcom. You cancelled three MM games and this is what happens. Maybe you will learn something

    With that kind of release date they better hope that their funds aren't cut into by two years inflation.

    Dang! I didn't know it was a Kickstarter! I would have contributed for exclusive swag! :(

    I seriously did not expect them to reach those extended platform stretch goals at such short notice. It's nice, but if you ask me, it's also a tad overkill. Hmm. Although I may just have to get the 3DS version over the PS3 version now...I can't decide!

    Well... Not really, considering it's made with the unreal engine, so porting it to most consoles shouldn't be much of a problem in that regard. I will suggest however, that you wait a bit more and see how each version will differ though. Because from what I've read from the kickstarter page and the podcasts, the 3DS version might not have ALL the features or look as nice, whereas the PS4 and Xbone versions might be the most enhanced. And seeing the game is still at least a year and a half away, I think waiting to see which has the most stuff might be the most prudent choice to make XD

    Oh, I didn't realise it was an Unreal Engine game. That pretty much explains it, lawls. But yeah, I did figure that the handheld versions may not be as full-featured, it's just, I can just see myself playing this sort of game on a handheld over a console. But I will wait until more information comes out before choosing. I mean, by the time it actually comes out most people probably will have upgraded to the PS4 or Xbox One...

    Man... yesterday being the final day of the kick-starter was wild, more than 600K were raised yesterday alone, it was pretty exciting! But yes, this game shattered every stretch goal possible, which makes me very happy! ^^ Not only we'll be able to get it on our console of choice, but now it's guaranteed it'll be full fledged with a lot more stages and even a special character stage! ^^ Also, they've stressed several that they are still very much aiming to get this game out within 18 months. So here we'll get to see if Comcept can show DoubleFine and all those other slacker developers that keep delaying kickstarted projects how it's done.

    Hell yes! This game is going to rock! Capcom can go kick rocks.
