Mega Man (Rockman) designer/producer Keiji Inafune and his company comcept met the US$3.3-million pledge goal for bringing their Mighty No. 9 side-scrolling game to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Tuesday — less than 20 hours before the campaign ends. The game is already heading to PCs after meeting its US$900,000 pledge goal within two days of launching its campaign in August. It is also coming to Macintosh, Linux, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
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.
The team posted an initial evaluation test of the graphics in Epic's Unreal Engine, as well as "episode 0" of a documentary on the game's creation:
Alongside Inafune, Naoya Tomita (Mega Man level design, Mega Man 2 stages, Mega Man 5 & 8 character designs) is 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 is providing the music in collaboration with Mega Man 2 composer Takashi Tateishi.
