Mighty No. 9 reaches stretch goal, Xbox 360, X1 versions confirmed

Mighty No. 9’s Kickstarter campaign ended yesterday as a huge success, topping $4 million raised on Kickstarter and Paypal.

Comcept USA’s Mighty No. 9 ended its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter yesterday, funding the project by 427 percent. Of its $900,000 goal, it raised $3,845,170 from 67,226 backers, and it raised $186,380 from Paypal, putting its total money raised over $4 million. Only two other videogames funded on Kickstarter have raised more money, Torment: Tides of Numenera, funded in April, and Project Eternity, funded last year.

Comcept USA posted an enthusiastic update on its Kickstarter page upon the project’s completion. "You. Are. Undefeatable! Unstoppable! Unbelievable!" the company wrote.

Mighty No. 9 reached each of its stretch goals; it will have versions available for the PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita, and 3DS (as well as PC and Mac), and it will include a single player level as heroine Call, an optional retro-style chiptune soundtrack, and an online battle race mode. Comcept USA added the last two stretch goals yesterday, and later wrote in its update, "Each time we turn around, we’re smashing through another stretch goal."

The project’s funding began during a PAX Prime 2013 panel. It completed its initial goal within four days. The side-scrolling game stars Beck as its hero who must stop a virus causing mechanical creatures going insane. The team is aiming for a PC release in Nov. 2014. [Multiple sources have cited a tenative early 2015 release date.]

Considering Capcom has lately thought Mega Man games won’t make any money, Comcept USA has completely outdone itself with its beyond successful Kickstarter for Mighty No. 9.
