It was a big day for Comcept USA at Anime Expo 2014 and their upcoming game, Mighty No.9. A project successfully funded by the initial Kickstarter campaign, Mighty No.9 will be released as a spiritual successor to the Megaman series. However, even with a remarkably successful campaign, Comcept USA and Keiji Inafune are far from finished with expanding the features for the game.
To start, Comcept is allowing gamers who hadn’t backed the game during the initial campaign to pre-order Mighty No.9 through their website, thanks to Humble Bundle. $23 will provide the buyer with one code that can be used to redeem Mighty No.9 on one of any of the following platforms: Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS, Vita, or PC. There’s also a $50 option that provides a retro-style game manual, the official soundtrack, and a digital art book/strategy guide, and an $80 option that gives players everything previously mentioned, as well as Early Access to the beta through Steam.
The funds received through these purchases will be put forth to the extended crowd funding campaign Comcept USA is pursuing through Paypal. These funds will be used towards a set of stretch goals meant to provide additional features to the game. The current goal is $100,000 to provide Mighty No.9 with a full English voiceover.
Finally, and perhaps one of the most interesting announcements, refers to the Might No.9 computer animated series that will be developed by Digital Frontiers. The synopsis states: “The story focuses on BECK, a weak transforming combat robot, who was made to fight in a combat robot league as a part of the MIGHTY NUMBERS, the strongest robots in the world. When Beck is the only robot spared from a virus that forces his teammates to destroy mankind, he has to find a way to overcome his own inadequacies so that he can stop them.”
