It's been getting a last day rush, it seems. It not only easily passed the PS4/XB1 goal, but will also be on the Vita and 3DS with 10 hours to spare.
That 3.8 million bonus of being able to play the game with optional 8-bit remixes of the tunes looks darn fancy. Especially with the likes of Takeshi Tateishi recently on board too (the guy behind the Megaman 2 tunes @_@). Hopefully it occurs.
The Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter has been doing well in its final hours - I remember it barely moving like ten days before the end date So far, it's gonna be coming out on handhelds as well as both current and next-gen consoles, which is something I'm going to be looking forward to. As much as I like the Mega Man games, what I really like about the project is the idea of players and developers interacting with each other along with sharing ideas and getting feedback, which is the main reason why I wanted to support this project.
EDIT: The Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter has ended! Four Million Dollars reached!
The game looks interesting, but I don't know if I would call it a successor to the Megaman games. For one, we don't know enough about the new series yet to compare it. I really do like the design of that character though.
