Mighty No. 9 hits $3.8 million on Kickstarter
Remember that spiritual successor to Mega Man that Keiji Inafune is working on and has brought to Kickstarter? It’s called Mighty No. 9 and it has secured a whopping $3.8 million in the span of 31 days.
On August 31, 2013, Inafune’s team started the Kickstarter campaign for Might No.9 with a humble goal of $900,000. (See our first article about Mighty No. 9 here.) The campaign turned to be a huge success as it was able to secure a total of $3,845,170 at the end of the campaign. Add to that the $186,380 donated via PayPal and you’re looking at a total of $4,031,550.
So what does it mean for Mighty No. 9? With huge funds, Mighty No. 9 will now have extra stages, additional modes, expanded soundtrack, and, in addition to the PC, it will now be available for other platforms like the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, WII U, PS Vita, and 3DS.
