Mighty No. 9 will be headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, if the Kickstarter campaign for Keiji Inafune's spiritual successor to Mega Man reaches its just-announced $3.3 million stretch goal.
The developers at Comcept USA made the announcement today on in a Kickstarter blog update, writing that "we heard your calls" for next-gen versions of the game.
"We know by the time the game ships in 2015, many of you will be proud owners of one next-gen system or the other —or maybe both!" the post reads. "If we reach this level of funding, we can add the PS4 and the Xbox One to the list for every backer getting the digital version of Mighty No. 9 to choose from! To recap, that would mean you could choose one of the following: PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PS4, or Xbox One!"
The post also revealed an expanded set of stretch goals that include a "boss rush" mode "where you can challenge all the Mighty No. Bosses, back-to-back, with a clock ticking to keep track of your best time" at $2 million, an extra stage and boss at $2.55 million and an online co-op challenge mode at $2.75 million.
Inafune revealed Mighty No. 9 at a PAX Prime panel late last month. As of this writing, the game has secured $1,906,568 of its $900,000 goal from 32,961 backers with 22 days remaining in the crowdfunding campaign.
