Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter adds two more levels and bosses

MegaMan spiritual successor Mighty No. 9 has blown past its initial funding goal and first stretch goal, raising $1.3 million since it was revealed on Saturday. Creator Keiji Inafune expresses his appreciation for the fans in this new video update released to backers.


With the first stretch goal of $1.2 million cleared, Mighty No. 9 will now feature eight levels of hopping, blasting, and transforming with eight unique bosses instead of six--it would've been kind of weird if Mighty No. 7 and Mighty No. 8 weren't around to pummel for weapons, right?

Mighty No. 9 is currently planned for release on PC around April 2015, with Mac and Linux builds set as a $1.35 million stretch goal. PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U versions will only happen if the Kickstarter reaches $2.5 million.

The minimum pledge required to get a game is $20, though you're welcome to lay down $10,000 if you'd like to have dinner with Inafune himself.

    Wait... so... it's already exceeded its initial target in what, two, three days? Not that I'm surprised...it's just that the way this is going, getting the $2.5 million for a console release looks like a given. I'm just wondering how long it will be before Capcom take some sort of action though. I'm almost certain they'll have to make a complaint, if only so as to not allow the undermining of Mega Man as an intellectual property. There's just too much similarity for them to let this slide, especially because Inafune is playing off Mega Man A LOT to big this thing up. Not saying I want this to happen, but you know it probably will once this thing starts bringing in the big numbers.

    Yeah. Wouldn't it be crazy if Capcom replied with a new Megaman game?

    They are! It's a board game!
