It seems that Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter cannot be stopped. With the game currently sitting at over $2,800,000 (USD), an online co-op mode has been confirmed, with a special intro stage and accompanying boss well in reach.

Also announced was a new stretch goal: Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita versions of the game. We were already aware that Jools Watsham (of Mutant Mudds fame) had offered to help port the game to the 3DS, but we hadn’t heard anything else until the update. Now, if the game reaches $3.5 million, the 3DS and Vita will get their own versions of this highly anticipated game. Porting to both handhelds will be done by Hotline Miami developers Abstraction Games.

Also announced is a nifty USB stick designed to look like a Famicom or NES cartridge. This will have a Steam copy of the game on it and will only be available to PC owners. But to hardcore geeks (like me), this could be a nice little collector’s item. You’ll need to add some money to your pledge, though. See here for details.

With the Kickstarter funding period wrapping up in about 70 hours, the Mighty No. 9 staff has begun allowing backers to vote on which design for Call (Mighty No. 9‘s version of Roll) will be used in the final game. The choices are as follows, and you can find out more about voting here.

About Guy Rainey

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.

    Please help fund River City Rampage: Underground
    It has 10 days left and still not funded yet

    it needs $320,000 [CAD] in order for it to see release on the 3DS and the Wii U, if Op Rainfall TRULY cares about the Wii U.. It MUST fulfill the Wii U Stretch Goal before it ends on October 9th

    • Charles Work

      Yes, “River City Rampage: Underground” also looks promising. I’ve never played the original, but I hear good things about it. Thanks for sharing. There’s also a Kickstarter for “Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero.” It’s funded, but hasn’t reached any stretch goals yet.

    • James Fox

      Don’t just stand there… help Shantae fulfill ALL her stretch goals along with helping River City Ransom not only get funded but making sure it comes to the Wii U

    • Guy Rainey

      I would love to, but for now I literally can’t. My debit card will not allow me to back the game (and throwing cash at the monitor doesn’t seem to help either).

    • Jeff Neuenschwander

      Just to let you know, we’re already big fans of the project.


    • James Fox

      Some fans you guys are
      To fill ya guys in: 10 days left – $115,568 made (out of $180,000) and heavily-ignored in favor of Mighty No. 9

      If i were you, I want EVERYONE to donate EVERY RED CENT into this project at once to make sure not only it gets funded but also make sure it reaches the $320,000 Wii U/3DS stretch goal

    • RagunaXL
