With Enough Funding, Mighty No. 9 Will Come To PS4, Xbox One
Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune's Kickstarter campaign for the project called Mighty No. 9 is doing quite well.
As of now, the project has received over $1.9 million from 33,455 backers, and there's still plenty of time left. What further goals could it reach...?
Well, according to the latest update, if the campaign hits $3.3 million, developer Inti Creates will bring the game to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One! The title isn't scheduled to ship until 2015, anyway, and as the update reads- "...many of you will be proud owners of one next-gen system or the other." And if they add the PS4 and Xbox One to the list, the confirmed platforms will include PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
For now, there's no stretch goal for any portable iteration of Mighty No. 9, but they're not ruling it out:
"Handhelds are still a possibility. Just because you don't see them in this next set of goals doesn't mean we aren't working on this. We know many of you have been asking about the possibility of Vita and 3DS versions of Mighty No. 9, so now we know the desire is most definitely there--what's left is to figure out if the money and production realities can make this possible."
Sure, it looks a lot like Mega Man, but aren't we in the midst of a retro rejuvenation of sorts? Especially in the digital world? And Kickstarter is the perfect place to give such projects the chance to exist.
