Two Days Left On Mega Man, er, Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter

Keiji Inafune was all, “Hey, if you guys give me $900,000, I’ll make a new Mega Man. Only I can’t call it Mega Man because I don’t own the brand, but you all know it’s a new Mega Man game anyway. So, yeah.”

Gamers responded to the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter by throwing money at their monitors and piling up a whopping $3 million (as of this posting). With under two days left to go on the campaign, another big stretch goal is within reach: Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.

Mighty No. 9 was originally pitched as a PC exclusive, but stretch goals to add Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U versions were surpassed fairly quickly. Now, with 34 hours remaining, Inafune wants to give some love to the next gen consoles, too, and he needs just under $300,000 to get there.

I, for one, plan on contributing. I want to play a new Mega Man, er, Mighty No. 9, on every platform possible. Get the official pitch below:

Soooo what was wrong with the blue bomber? No joke, if this is pretty much the successor of megaman (which no doubt looks very similar) what was so wrong before to the point there they just drop megaman? The new smash bros is going to be the biggest game megaman is actually in in the last decade almost…So what does capcom do to their (possibly) more memorable character of all time? Replace him. Worst part is Megaman didn’t just stop being developed over the years it’s been promised to us and then mysteriously dropped because Capcom is poor. If you plan on spending money to make money, after you spend lots of that money it’s in your better interest to actually finish it so you can at least earn a few bucks.

Sometimes Capcom, you just make a whole lot of sense dont you?…..

Oh huntsman, silly huntsman. Keiji Inafune has nothing to do with Capcom anymore, and Capcom has been running out crap under the Megaman name for years now. Inafune took some offense to what has been done to essentially his baby, so he is taking steps to resurrect MM in a new form. Rejoice my gamer brothers! His return is coming!
