PS Vita, PS4, Xbox One getting retro game in 2014

If you are a regular follower of Kickstarter, you’ll know that the website has just finished with funding for arguably one of the biggest projects of 2013. We too have been keeping a close eye on the site and you won’t need us to tell you about the game we are talking about – Mighty No.9.

The Mega Man inspired retro platformer has just finished with the month-long funding via Kickstarter and if you didn’t already know, the game has exceeded Comcast’s expectations and has smashed every stretch goal thrown at consumers.

For a small project that initially asked for $900,000 in return for a 2D PC platformer, it has now been officially confirmed that Mighty No.9 is on the way to current-gen home consoles, but more importantly – PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita as well.

It truly is fantastic news, since the game is looking amazing – even based on a 10 second test gameplay trial highlighting the recently announced Unreal Engine that will be used to build the game. Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune is naturally delighted with the way things have turned out, even gaining the support of many current and previous employees at Capcom – Inafune’s old place of work.

There’s no release date for the game yet, but it is very refreshing to think that we’ll now see Mighty No.9 on next-gen consoles as well as Vita and 3DS. Who knows, perhaps even some cross-platform gameplay between the PS4 and PS Vita versions? Asking for cross-buy on this game may seem a little cheeky during this early stage.

With development now sure to be pushing forward, let us know what your expectations of the game are. Are you fully convinced that Mighty No.9 can end up as one of the big hits of 2014? How many of you regret not funding the project now?

    I CANNOT wait, this is going to be awesome. Everyone involved seems to come from a long line of quality games.
    “The Mega Man inspired retro platformer has just finished with the month-long funding via Kickstarter and if you didn’t already know, the game has exceeded Comcast’s…”
    You may need to change that, Comcept is Keiji Inafune’s company name.

    Tbh…the only thing I regret is not getting is the physical SNES-styled box. I hope they release that separately afterwards and if it’s at a higher cost then so be it. ‘Golden Beck’ will probably be available as DLC as will the special transformation.
