The Mighty No. 9 May See Kickstarter Stretch Goals For 3DS And Vita Versions



The Mighty No. 9, a spiritual successor to Mega Man by Keiji Inafune, has amassed over $1.5 million in contributions on Kickstarter. As a result, the game is going to have a New Game Plus and Turbo mode added to it.


In addition, the game’s developers have commented further on the potential release of portable versions of the game for the Nintendo 3DS and Vita. Here’s what they have to say on that front:


Another message we have gotten loud and clear: A portable version of Mighty No. 9 is something many of you are excited about — and believe us, we would love to see it happen as well. Potential 3DS and/or Vita versions of the game are something we’ve been discussing since the earliest stages of this project, as handhelds are something our developers have plenty of experience with. Unfortunately, that experience tells us that these things cost money — however, the road to making them a possibility is relatively straightforward: If we continue to see more and more fans asking for portable versions of Mighty No. 9, and if we’re able to set and achieve stretch goals that would justify the cost, we would be thrilled to make this happen. In the meantime, we’ll continue watching for more feedback and start working up more detailed budgets just in case, so please continue to let us know how much of a priority this is for you. Thanks!


Earlier in the week, fans tweeted requests for a Nintendo 3DS version of The Mighty No. 9 at the game’s official Twitter account. Following the tweets, Renegade Kid’s Jools Watsham offered to help Comcept with the development of a 3DS version of the game.
