As of October 1st the Kickstarter campaign for the Keiji Inafune directed game "Mighty No.9" has concluded and the end result couldn't be any better for the game. The Kickstarter campaign started on August 31st and had the initial goal of $900,000. By October 1st "Might No.9" had received over 400 percent of what it was asking for, it gained over 4 million dollars in fundraising, $3,845,170 from Kickstarter and $186,380 through PayPal.
So with over 4 million dollars raised for this game what does it all mean? As shown through it's Kickstarted campaign, whenever a milestone in money was reached, a new stretch goal was achieved. Here are the stretch goals "Mighty No. 9" achieved through Kickstarter.
So what we can expect for the game is two more stages, a MAC/LINUX version, new game plus and turbo mode, a documentary about the making of the game, a boss rush mode, a PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U version of the game, a challenge mode, online co-op challenge mode, intro stage and boss, support characters, a PS4 and XBox One version, PS Vita and 3DS version, a single player call stage and boss, an optional retro-style chiptune soundtrack + FX, and an on-line battle race mode.
All this was because of fans who donated their money to support this project. For many fans it was because of Keiji Inafune who was one of the creators of the Megaman or Rockman series and they see "Mighty No. 9" as the spiritual successor to the Megaman because of the design of the character Beck and the side-scrolling action gameplay.
The story of "Mighty No. 9" is about Beck the ninth creation in a line of combat robots called the Mighty Number. After a strange computer virus infects the other robots of the Mighty Numbers as well as machines around the world, Beck must step up to the challenge. He must defeat the rouge robots and discover who caused these events and save the world.
"Mighty No.9" is a game development by Comcept known for such titles as "Soul Sacrifice", "Soul Sacrifice Delta" and "Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z" and Inti Creates best known for the Mega Man Zero series and Mega Man ZX series.
The expected date of release for the "Mighty No.9" is Spring 2015.
