Mighty No. 9 from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune was approximately $200,000 away from reaching the Kickstarter stretch goals for a PS4 and Xbox One version of the platformer when Monday began. By the end of the day, Comcept announced that the next-gen consoles would receive the game and it looks like it may get PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS versions as well.
With 22 hours to go in the Mighty No. 9 crowd-funding effort, the game has reached $3.2 million in funding on Kickstarter and more than $115,000 via PayPal. This puts the game past the $3.3 million stretch goal which guarantees a PS4 and Xbox One port of the game.
This also puts the PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS stretch goal of $3.5 million definitely within reach as it is less than $200,000 away at the time of this article. Comcept is also has a $3.7 million stretch goal which adds a single-player stage and boss featuring Mighyt No. 9's heroine, Call.
Comcept showed off the first test video of the game earlier today using the Unreal Engine. While it just hastily put together test footage with placeholder assets, it gives the idea of the type of gameplay Mighty No. 9 is shooting for.
