A few days ago comcept USA announced a Kickstarter project for Mighty No. 9 — a spiritual successor to Capcom's Mega Man series — and it has been receiving a lot of attention from funders, press and even other development studios since then it would seem.
The project has already reached its minimum $900,000 goal, despite only going live on Sunday. If the comcept USA team reaches its stretch goal of $2,500,000, it will also develop Wii U, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. The Kickstarter page doesn't make any reference to a 3DS version, however, it could very well now be a possibility thanks to Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid. He reached out to the comcept USA team on Twitter earlier this evening, offering to help create a 3DS version of the game. The response that Watsham got back sounded rather promising:
@JoolsWatsham Wow, thanks very much for reaching out -- I will make sure this info gets to the team!— Mighty No. 9 (@MightyNo9) September 2, 2013
With 29 days left and over $1,000,000 already in the bank, it's looking very good for Mighty No. 9, which could quite feasibly reach its upper stretch goal during that time.
