Mega Man successor Mighty No. 9 has reached the end of its Kickstarter campaign, closing on a whopping $3,845,170 excluding direct pledges and PayPal. A last-minute 3DS and Vita stretch goal lead to the platformer securing an extra million Dollars in the last four days, an impressive achievement that will now see Mighty No. 9 release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and handhelds in Spring 2015.
Now we wait.
In one final push to secure even more funding for Mega Man successor Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune has announced that they'll develop PS Vita and 3DS ports of the platformer should the Kickstarter total hit $3.5 million.
There's only four days left to secure the lion's share of a million Dollars, but could this expanded audience seal the deal? Either way, Mighty No. 9 has crushed its initial funding target and has entered full development pending an April 2015 release on PC, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune's spiritual successor to Mega Man, is all kinds of Kickstarted and all kinds of happening. To celebrate, the team have released a half-hour developer documentary introducing the staff, their roles, gaming experience and vision for the project.

Keiji Inafune, him of Mega Man and Dead Rising fame, has taken to Kickstarter to crowd-fund a spiritual successor to his beloved platforming franchise. Mighty No. 9 is described as "an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game that takes the best aspects of the 8- and 16-bit era classics you know and love, and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh and amazing."
It's also almost certainly going to enter production, seeing as over $870,000 of its $900,000 target has been raised in the first 24 hours. Details below.
UPDATE: It's now completely funded. Not bad for a single day.Click here to read more...
