Inafune's Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter has really taken off. With still 20 days to go, the project has now raised over $2 million in funding. To be more exactly, a current total of 34,949 backers have contributed $2,013,086 at time of writing. That's well beyond the original $900,000 goal, and as promised, the $2 mil mark means Mighty No. 9 will be getting a Boss Rush mode.
Boss Rush is a time-based attack mode where players fight all the bosses one after another. It will be included with the game once Mighty No. 9 is released in 2015.
The next stretch goal is $2.2 million, and would allow the Mighty No. 9 team to work on a Wii U, PS3, and Xbox 360 version of this PC side-scroller. After that, $2.4 million unlocks a Challenge Mode. The current list only goes up to $3.3 million, which promises an Xbox One and PS4 version. Holy cow.
You can still do your part to bring this game to consoles (and possibly next-gen platforms). The Kickstarter is still active, until October 1, 2013. Hardly needs saying that this project has really taken off since it was first announced during PAX.
Since then, Inafune has remarked on the similarities his new game shares with Mega Man. Not that he's at all worried.
