Update: Mighty No.9 met its Kickstarter goal less than 48 hours after Inafune’s announcement. Reaching the Console version stretch goal is very likely to happen.
The biggest news from PAX in Seattle this year surprisingly didn’t have anything to do with next-gen consoles. It was the announcement that came from Keiji Inafune, creator of the stalwart franchises MegaMan and Resident Evil.
Inafune San revealed plans to fund, via Kickstarter, his creative successor to the MegaMan series – Mighty No9. The game is currently planned to release only on PC, but don’t screaming “master race” insults just yet console gamers. It is extremely likely Mighty No.9 will find its way to your PS3, Xbox 360, or Wii U systems.
Inafune’s revelation occurred only 24 hours ago, and at the moment the total amount raised is $745,000 of the needed $900k. For the console versions to be made $2.5 million has to be raised, but with 29 days still on the clock, I would say the console versions are a safe bet.
Inafune San went on to explain the reasons behind this bold move, but don’t take it from me, check out the embedded video to hear it for yourself.
