Mighty No. 9 by Mega Man Creators Meets Kickstarter Goal
posted on by Egan Loo
Mega Man (Rockman) designer/producer Keiji Inafune and his company comcept met the US$900,000 pledge goal for making their Mighty No. 9 side-scrolling game on Monday. The campaign had just begun less than two days earlier on Saturday evening.
Inafune is planning for the game to be a side-scrolling adventure that has a classic feel, but new, revolutionary elements. Inafune is also accepting fan input in order to improve the game even further. His team now aim to release the game in spring 2015 for the PC with gamepad support.
If additional fundraising goals are reached, there is a possibility that the game will also appear on the Macintosh and Linux platforms. If US$2.5 million is pledged to the campaign, the game will get a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U release.
Alongside Inafune, Naoya Tomita (Mega Man level design, Mega Man 2 stages, Mega Man 5 & 8 character designs) will be designing the game, and Takenori Kimoto a.k.a. "Kimo Kimo" (Darkstalkers 3, Vampire Hunter 2 character design) is designing the characters. Original Mega Man soundtrack composer Manami Matsumae will be providing the music.
