Mighty No. 9, the new Kickstarter funded game from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, about a robot fighting corrupted evil robots (no, Mighty No. 9 is about that not… oh… umm… huh) will be available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii U! But wait there’s more…
The original funding for the game was $900,000 for Windows only, but has since easily reached $2.2 million meaning it will be available on current generation home consoles. This also means the game will be out for Mac and Linux operating systems as well as a making of video documentary and new game modes. The campaign has been extended to include ports for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, and a co-op mode if it reaches $3.3 million. So head on over to the Kickstarter page and get donating if you want to see that happen and really why wouldn’t you?
You know as excited as I am to hear all this, I have to say I’m a little bit disappointed. I mean, I love that Keiji Inafune is taking back his own creation in a manner of speaking but I can’t help but think: just the old 2D sidescroller eh? Isn’t there say any other Mega Man properties you might want to continue with the hardcore fans support? Something with a little more modern flare? You know with some rpg and strategy elements? Something LEGEND(s)ary? Of course you all know what I mean… Mega Man Soccer!
Ok, you know I really mean the Mega Man Legends series which was tragically cut short and squashed in an attempt at a revival. Maybe if Mighty No. 9 works out we’ll get that, I know I’m on board.
