Mighty No. 9 Is Coming To PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Xbox One And 3DS


Keiji Inafune and comcept have broken yet another barrier with Mighty No. 9. Ultimately the project is one of the highest grossing campaigns in Kickstarter history. As of this writing Mighty No. 9 has grossed $3,488,107 in funding. The team has unlocked the PS Vita/3DS stretch goal ahead of schedule, but it’s worth betting that the project will eventually hit the $3,500,000 mark that the portable stretch goal was set at.

We’ve been covering Mighty No. 9 since it first launched on August 31st, and were blown away by the amount of support the project has received. Over 60K unique backers have pledged their money. The amount of support is likely in reaction to Capcom‘s stagnant behaviour to the much loved Mega Man franchise of which Mighty No. 9 is a spiritual successor to. Studio head at comcept, Keiji Inafune departed Capcom after years of not seeing eye-to-eye with the upper management. His famous remarks at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show, (credit IGN“everyone’s making awful games,” concluding that “Japan is at least five years behind” left nothing to the imagination.

It’s great to see Inafune blossoming once again as an independent, but with so many stretch goals under their belt, will comcept fall victim to the much expanded workload? Veteran development studios like inXile and Double Fine have already fallen prey to the delays on their respective projects. In all, Mighty No. 9 is set to arrive on PC, Linux, Mac, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PS Vita, and 3DS in 2015, a tall order for any developer.
