Final platforms confirmed. Kickstarter ending soon.

Mighty No. 9 will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS Vita, and 3DS in addition to the previously confirmed PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC.

The crowd-funded spiritual successor to Mega Man from Keiji Inafune and Comcept reached stretch goals for the four platforms today with just 11 hours remaining until its Kickstarter campaign comes to an close.

Three stretch goals still remain. At $3.7 million, Comcept will add a new single player call stage and boss; at $3.8 million, an optional chiptune soundtrack; and at $4 million, an online battle race mode.

    I honestly didn’t expect to make that 3DS/Vita stretch goal. So glad I pledged $20.

    Now to decide on whether or not to get the Vita or PS4 versions…

  • TheExile285


    Gonna buy the PSV & PS3 or PS4 versions!!!

  • JuhRo

    How come I see 3.4 mil… did people back out.. Oo Or.. just do it to get it past the stretch and back out..? That’s shady.

    • Poomwood

      They are counting paypal money, too. Read the entire page.

    • nesfe

      There are also Paypal donations that are not included in the kickstarter counter but are added to the stretch goals.

      “PAYPAL TOTAL: $135,000 (as of 6:00am PDT Tue, 10/01)”
      Anyways, yay vita version for me ^^

      • JuhRo



        Okay, then. :) That makes me happy. Vita version for me as well.. but I’ll wait for it to come out, since it’ll be 40$ most likely.. for the physical box version. :D

        • Zackasaur

          Physical box version? Did I miss something, or is this just wishful thinking on your part? :P

          • JuhRo

            It is wishful thinking… :) If not, I’ll buy it off of PSN.. no big.

  • jujubee88

    That’s cool.

  • bloodiOS

    Here’s hoping that it reaches $4,000,000. And that there is stereoscopic 3D support for home consoles (at least for next-gen.)

  • Elvick

    Not surprised. A little shameful that this ploy worked so well.

    • Budgiecat

      I don’t think there was ever a problem for Inafune to get $ from a publisher considering who he was.

      I think he did this to send a message to Capcom and other Japanese developers to try to think outside the box and more for Capcom as a slap in the face mainly saying to them ‘look, Megaman is not dead, and you don’t really know how to properly communicate with your fans’.

      • Elvick

        I don’t think he did it for any of the reasons you’re saying. Just out of pure greed.

        What easier group to manipulate than those who are so mad at Capcom, that they’d jump at the chance to “prove them wrong”? What better way to manipulate those people than to re-create Mega Man, in a sense.

        And it worked.

        • LordKaiser

          Look it on the bright side. Now people can focus on Shantae for the last 2 days…

          • Elvick

            I wish. Really want those stretch goals.

  • Budgiecat

    I know it was a placeholder 7 day made video, but I really didn’t like it. Here’s hoping the final product looks like this:


    • neocatzon

      Oh, this is good. Who made this?

    • JuhRo

      I think, at the moment, it looks a lot more 3D than that–judging from the first video they made.

    • Sevyne

      That is kind of what I was expecting it to look like. I also didn’t like the 3D look they used for the placeholder video.

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        Same here. Especially considering that first concept shot they shared was 2D. I hope they take notice of this and go the 2D route. The GIF above looks especially great.


        • EX+

          I’m pretty sure that’s what the final product will look like. Look at Guilty Gear Xrd. That uses UE3 and looks 2D.

        • Jay

          I actually like the 7 day concept more than the heavily drawn look, but I think this screenshot looks the best. Not too anime, but not too 3D, a nice balance of old and new… Pretty much what the team said they’re going for.

          • LordKaiser

            It looks good also but if this intend to be a spiritual successor it should look like anime to capture what it really was.


            • Jay

              Maybe they’ll use that anime look for… Mighty Legends?? :O

      • EX+

        Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Arcsystem works using UE3 for Guilty Gear Xrd? Because that’s what MN9 will most likely look like in the final product.

        • Sevyne

          If it looks anything close to Guilty Gear Xrd then I’d be extremely happy. Also, yes you are right that GG does use UE3.

        • shogunknight

          Exactly, in other words how are they going to do the 3ds version?

    • gamelayer

      Where’s that video from? Looks much better than the 7 day PS1 throwback.

      • neocatzon

        Found it, it’s made by Ari Gibson from Mechanical Apple (check his site, good stuff). Well, the 7 day is just an official tease for animated Beck, it’s not final. Unreal Engine 3 can do much more than that.

    • shogunknight

      Damn, the 2d looks soo good. Well, were getting Unreal Engine 3 version instead

    • LordKaiser

      I wished that it looks like this

    • Fango

      that’s fracking amazing. im also hoping they go with the 2D look. should start a campaign to nudge them in this direction. There needs to be more games with hand drawn sprites.

    • Elvick

      That is gorgeous.

  • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

    I’m of two minds. It’s awesome that I can get this on handheld, but dammit, I would have rather some of these funds get to Shantae.

  • EX+

    Even though I think that the stretch goals were quite unreasonable, I’m glad it’s reached this much.
    This’ll hopefully send out a message to not only Capcom, but the entire Japanese gaming industry. Two things MN9 has done that a lot of Japanese publishers and devs failed to do:
    Localize their games right off the bat or less than a year later.
    And not making a game with huge potential on a smartphone.
    Even with a 2D platformer, with the right marketing and effort, you could be swimming in money.
    I’m sorry, but mobile gaming sucks and you’ll do a hell of a lot better on consoles and handhelds. I hope this game proves this.

  • shogunknight

    I just noticed (from siliconera), can 3ds render Unreal engine 3? Or will there be a completely different type of the game engine (like using unity) depending on platform?

  • artemisthemp

    Very happy about Mighty No. 9 coming to PS4 and all Call Single Player have been reach

  • Hidayat246


  • Jake_Indiman

    Just pledged it. This game will sooooo succeed!!!! Go Inafune go! (Waving fans!)

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    It might actually hit 4 million, unbelievable!

  • LordKaiser

    LOL WTF!? Only 1 goal left!!!!

    • AdamBoy64

      Only $80k to go at time of typing, with 45 mins to go.

      Here we go. Pretty crazy stuff.

      • LordKaiser

        Extremely crazy. This is more than a middle finger to Capcom’s face.

        • AdamBoy64

          Yeah, it’s pretty unreal.

          They just updated the PayPal total – they need $48k, with 37mins to go. Looking good.

  • AdamBoy64

    And it’s reached the $4m mark, with 10 mins remaining. Wow.

  • AdamBoy64

    Man, so excluding additions to the PayPal total,
    but it looks they ended up raising $4,031,428.

    Will be interesting to see how much that figure increases when it’s all calculated.

    • LordKaiser

      They pay pal numbers had not been added to the total yet?

      • AdamBoy64

        Oh sorry, I meant any new additions to the PayPal total since they last updated the PayPal figure.

  • LordKaiser

    ? It only says 3.8… Anyway the campaign has ended! It was a success regardless of what was left.
