Xbox One, PS4 stretch goals added to Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter campaign

Should funding reach $3.3 million, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune's team will bring digital version of new game to upcoming consoles.

If funding for Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune's new side-scrolling game Mighty No. 9 reaches $3.3 million on Kickstarter, developer Inti Creates will bring the game to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, it was announced today.

"We know by the time the game ships in 2015, many of you will be proud owners of one next-gen system or the other--or maybe both!," reads an update on the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter page.

Should funding reach this level, Mighty No. 9 will be available on platforms including PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Though the game could come to next-generation consoles, no stretch goals for portable versions have been announced. This could change, according to the developer.

"Handhelds are still a possibility," the Mighty No. 9 team said. "Just because you don't see them in this next set of goals doesn't mean we aren't working on this. We know many of you have been asking about the possibility of Vita and 3DS versions of Mighty No. 9, so now we know the desire is most definitely there--what's left is to figure out if the money and production realities can make this possible."

The developer said there could be "other ways" to bring Mighty No. 9 to portables (besides stretch goals) that it is currently looking into, or it could be a stretch goal after all.

At press time, funding for Mighty. No. 9 stands at $1.9 million from nearly 33,000 backers. The campaign closes on October 1. Should funding reach $2 million, a Boss mode--where players can challenge all the bosses back-to-back with a clock ticking to keep track of time--will be added.

Inafune announced and launched the Kickstarter campaign for Mighty No. 9 during PAX Prime last month. It reached its initial $900,000 target in under two days.

i backed this project a while back along with a lot of other people.  I hope it hits the $3.3M goal so it can be available on all platforms as I'd prefer to play it on Xbox One or PS4 rather than on my Xbox 360 or PS3.

The article is a bit misleading, "Should funding reach this level,($3,3 million) Mighty No. 9 will be available on platforms including PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One."

The PC, Linux & Mac versions goals have been met and the Xbox 360, PS3 & Wii U versions need to reach $2,2 million.

This game is similar to, but legally distinct from, Mega Man.

I bought a Wii, and was the worst gaming decision I ever made. Nintendo isn't my thing.

People who aren't biased and actually bought a WiiU before judging? And it'll come out for every current and next gen console.

Who said you had to forget? I'm getting it but I'm still going to remember all the Megaman games I have played (i.e, every one except the 10th).

ITs basicly megaman that can get power no only from bosses but from certain actions and killing enemies certain way and with a really diiferent artwork :o

I'll pass it, nothing will ever make me forget about Megaman, it doesn't matter if it's from the same creator or whatever.

Do we really need a "Boss Mode" BEFORE console versions? I don't like the priorities of these stretch goals.

Tell ya what Inafune, make console versions and I'll gladly buy a copy, but I'm not throwing money in a game that may never come to a system I'll play it on. If they hit the stretch goals, I may consider donating, but there is no chance I will if there is any possibility that the game will remain PC only.

it might be slowing down but it will still come out on consoles even at this slower pace

I really hope they make the PS4/XONE goals.  I hope they realize all of their dreams with interest.

I like how kenji is just like screw capcom ill do it myself and this is when kickstarter really shines imo. Id love for this to be a uber success so that capcom will fill and look stupid after what they've done with the megaman franchise.

But it is slowing down rapidly, i know it will make at least $2.5 Million, but im not sure about any further, without more people finding out.

It's a new project from the creator of Megaman, he said it's kind of spiritual successor to Megaman, but still not really related to Megaman.

Already put $75.00 towards it! Would be epic if it reached the Xbox One and PS4 goals!

@Sebastian Jonathan I will always remember good time with Megaman too, which makes me wonder whether or not will Capcom ever commemorate Megaman success with animated movie or documentary film?

@grey_fox1984 The Boss mode was just added as a sort of thank you goal, previously there was nothing at $2,000,000. They thought to of what they could easily add to the game and that was cost effective.

@grey_fox1984 They simply put the completion of the game above platform. That sounds logical to me.

@Justin Jeffrey No, Megaman trademark belongs to Capcom. It should be a similar game from the same leading developers though.

@kohle36 The answer has been available since the beginning of the Kickstarter, Yes. The beta is only for PC though.
