Keiji Inafune's Mighty No. 9 hits Kickstarter goal


Keiji Inafune's Kickstarter for The Mighty No. 9 is a "take my money!" situation if there ever was one, with the project accomplishing its $900,000 goal within three days. The game, which features many alumni from the Mega Man series, is a side-scroller shooter about a robot named Beck who defeats a series of robots and gains their powers. We can sense Capcom's lawyers frothing from across the Pacific.

The Mighty No. 9 is scheduled to launch for PC sometime in the spring of 2015 via "Steam and DRM-free digital distribution methods." Stretch goals include Mac/Linux versions at $1.35 million and the highest stretch at this time is current-gen console ports at $2.5 million. If the momentum keeps up, Inafune's going to be scrambling to come up with further goals by week's end.
