Keiji Inafune’s Mega Man successor is unstoppable.
Keiji Inafune’s spiritual successor to Mega Man, Mighty No. 9, which recently went up on Kickstarter for funding has already surpassed its $900,000 funding goal within two days. In fact the grand total is still rising as 20,783 backers have thus far contributed $1,204,281 towards the game’s funding.
Developed by Comcept USA, Mighty No. 9 is a 16-bit side scroller which takes all the best known elements of Mega Man and updates it for a new generation. A number of series’ veterans are working on the title, including Inafune himself, and takes input from the fans.
Mighty No. 9 will be available via Steam or on a digital distribution channel of one’s choice (if they back funding that is). It will also be heading to Mac, Linux, Xbox 360, PS3 or Wii U as the stretch goals are surpassed. There have also been indications that Inafune is interested in bringing the game to PS4 and PS Vita with Remote Play support but nothing solid as of yet. Stay tuned for more updates.
