Mighty No. 9 Will Run On Unreal Engine 3


Mighty No. 9 has hit another stretch goal, with around 30 hours to go in its Kickstarter campaign—the game will now include a support character.


This feature will allow for a sidekick character—who hasn’t been decided upon yet—to swoop in for a limited time and use their powers to help out during times of need.


Should Mighty No. 9 hit the $3.3 million mark by the time its Kickstarter campaign comes to an end, developer Comcept will announce PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game.


Additionally, Comcept have announced that Mighty No. 9 will run on Unreal Engine 3, and have released an early engine test created internally, that was used to test if the engine would provide what the team was looking for. You can watch this below:



Note that the video above uses placeholder assets and animation, and Comcept say it isn’t necessarily representative of what the final game will look like.
