Mighty No. 9 reaches $2 million, lets you cut to the front of the boss line


The Kickstarter pledge drive for Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune's new retro-inspired 2D platformer, has exceeded $2 million. As a result, Boss Rush mode, a time-based attack mode where players fight all of the bosses in rapid succession, will be in the game when it launches in 2015. No more waiting for Mighty No. 9's hero, Beck, to navigate an entire stage before your climactic battle, boss types!

Mighty No. 9 made its debut last month at PAX Prime and quickly secured its desired $900,000 in funding. If Mighty No. 9 is able to secure $2.2 million, then Inafune promises ports to Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U, while reaching $2.75 million will secure an online co-op mode for players. Finally, $3.3 million guarantees Xbox One and PS4 ports.
