Lots of news from the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter Campaign from this weekend. Only two days remain on the project, but Comcept has given an extremely enticing reason to donate more money in the final 24 hours.
First, the company unveiled two new stretch goals at $3,000,000 (met) and $3,500,000. These goals with be bringing the game to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and the higher one will be for those who want to play Mighty No. 9 on the go with a PS Vita version and even a low-res Nintendo 3DS version.
We’ve seen the final hours of Kickstarter do some amazing things in the past, so something tells me they’ll have no problem. Obtaining the $3,500,000 stretch goal will make it the third most successful video game in Kickstarter’s history behind Torment: Tides of Numenera and Project Eternity.
In other news which is sure to please classic Mega Man fans, Comcept confirmed in an update to backers that Takashi Tateishi will be joining the team’s extensive group of composers. Don’t know Tateishi’s name, well, he is the man behind the music for Mega Man 2, often regarded as one of the best soundtracks on the NES.
He will be joining Mega Man 1 composer Manami Matsumae and Inti Creates’ in-house composer Ippo Yamada, who has worked on Mega Man 7, 9, 10, and all the Mega Man Zero games. Comcept still denies any official connection to the Mega Man series with Mighty No. 9, but they sure like advertising the similarities.
For those interested, Mighty No. 9 crossed the stretch goal for making a documentary on the game’s progress, and the first episode was also made available. Check it out below.
Lots of updates, $500,000 to go, and only 24 hours left. Head on over to Mighty No. 9‘s Kickstater Page for more details.
