As we’ve been bringing you over the last few weeks, the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter campaign has been a huge success, but in its final hours, it exceeded almost everyone’s expectations. The Kickstarter is now officially over and we are happy to report that Keiji Inafune’s campaign reached every single stretch goal possible.
Mighty No. 9 is the brainchild of Inafune, creator of Mega Man, and is in turn looking to be a spiritual successor to the Mega Man series. This is great news for Mega Man fans with that series not anywhere near Capcom’s radar these days.
In our posting only five days ago, the total for the campaign was $2,673,119, and by the end it totaled $3,845,170. They also started a second option through Paypal to donate, which received $186,380. When combined, this brought the total to over four million. As a result, many stretch goals that seemed almost impossible a week ago, were all met completely. These new goals were as follows:
-$2,750,000: Beck & Call Online Co-op Challenge Mode
-$2,900,000: Intro Stage & Boss
-$3,100,000: Support Character
-$3,300,000: PS4 & Xbox One Versions
-$3,500,000: PS Vita & 3DS Versions
-$3,700,000: Single Player Call Stage & Boss
-$3,800,000: Optional Retro-Style Chiptune Soundtrack + FX
-$4,000,000: Online Battle Race Mode
This has to be one of the most successful gaming Kickstarters out there. The money just started pouring in so fast at the end that they had to add further stretch goals that weren’t originally posted. I am so excited to get my hands on this game when it is done, especially with all of these new additions. The page also posted a very short video of some of the concept development they’ve done so far on the game that can be seen below.
