Hot off the heels of the news that Might No. 9, the spiritual successor to Mega Man, is coming to Xbox 360, developer Comcept’s popular Kickstarter campaign has blasted through its stretch goals, and the title will now be making its way to the Xbox One and PS4. It was previously announced that the game would be coming to Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PC, Mac and Linux.
Originally, when the current-gen systems were added to the Kickstarter stretch goals, Inafune told Joystiq that Comcept was ignoring next-gen systems for the time being due to the developer’s unfamiliarity with the technology and the additional costs of obtaining development kits. Inafune noted, however, that the beauty of Kickstarter was the ability for developers to add stretch goals in order to respond to consumer feedback. Soon after the interview, next-gen systems were added as a stretch goal, and, thanks to the community, Mighty No. 9 reached that goal.
Overall, the Kickstarter campaign managed to raise more than $4 million, including Paypal donations, making it one of the most successful crowdfunded video games of all time. The project’s success means that PS Vita and 3DS versions are also in the works. Moreover, the game has grown substantially since its initial inception, with stretch goals adding more levels, bosses, soundtracks and characters to the title. Mighty No. 9 is tentatively due out in the spring of 2015.
