Mighty No. 9 makes $2.2 million

Mighty No. 9, the spiritual successor to Megaman, just hit $2.2 million on Kickstarter. This means the game will officially head to current generation consoles including the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PC, Mac and Linux. The game will play like a retro action platformer much like Megaman did, where you can also choose the order you fight bosses to get new powers. If the project makes another $1 million then it will also come to the Xbox one and Playstation 4 too.

Mighty No. 9
The design for Mighty No. 9 retains some of the Megaman style.

Like any Kickstarter there are plenty of backing options, ranging from $5 for forum access and your name in the backer credits, all the way up to $10,000 for dinner in Tokyo with the man behind the Megaman series, Keiji Inafune. Don't assume the $10,000 backing will get you to Tokyo or a place to stay though, as these aren't included in your backing reward. If you just want to pledge for the game itself, then that will cost you $20.

Your mission during this game will be to defeat the other mighty numbers. There will also be a documentary filmed on the development of this game filmed by 2 player productions, the same company that did the documentaries on Mojang and Double Fine's Broken Age.

Concept 2

The design of Mighty No. 2 looks a lot like a Medabot. 

There is no release date set yet but we probably won't see the final product until late 2014.

KitGuru Says: Mighty No. 9 is looking good. It's shaping up to be the Megaman game fans hoped for – before Capcom cancelled it again.
