Mighty No. 3, Assemble!

Mighty No. 3, Assemble!

Our friends at Comcept and 8-4 have cooked up a little something interesting to get the community to come together over the weekend. On Monday, they intend to reveal the third of the Mighty Numbers over on their Kickstarter page, but with a little extra help from the Get Me Off the Moon Facebook group, you can all discover this third master of robotic mayhem a couple of days early!

Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter Stretch Goal Update: Consoles Being Prioritized

mno9banner The Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter has reached a new stretch goal at $1,500,000, which means that New Game Plus and Turbo Mode are now a go. But that's not the only news to come from reaching this milestone.

The fans have made their pleas heard loud and clear, and as a result, the entire stretch goal arrangement has been reorganized. $1,750,000 is the new goal for the making-of documentary, and $2,200,000 is now the new goal for bringing Mighty No. 9 to consoles, with the mystery stretch goals being pushed back. "We realized the other stretch goals we had planned would be more welcome after this overriding priority, where they wouldn’t pale so much in comparison," the team stated in their latest update.

You can read all about their reasoning and decision here, and if you're interested in checking out some fan art and some new Q&A, then have a look at their "Communi-Tuesday" feature!

The Dream is Real: Mighty No. 9 is Funded (Update)

mno9funded Keiji Inafune came to PAX and presented a request to fans: to help support his new game that would carry on the spirit of Mega Man. And the fans responded. With over 15,000 backers, and in just over 39 hours, Comcept's Kickstarter campaign for Mighty No. 9 is officially funded. The game is going to happen, and the supporters made sure it happened fast.

Of course, there is still a long road ahead. While it's fantastic the project is a go, the game can continue to get better with more funding. It may be a big stretch, even in spite of the rapid funding Mighty No. 9 received, but I'd really love to see this title grace consoles. There's still plenty of time to reach that 2.5 million mark, so keep spreading the word and rallying support!

A very big thanks to everyone giving their support! Keep it up!

Update: The Kickstarter has now surpassed one million dollars. That doesn't get us anything new, but it's a nice, round number to quote until it reaches $1,200,000, the first stretch goal.
