Video Game Quick Hits 9/20/13

September 20th - via: bigshinyrobot.com
Old school gamers clearly love Mega Man. Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune and Comcept’s spiritual successor to the Blue Bomber, has reached its Kickstarter goal ($900,000) and then some. With the latest stretch goal reached, $2.2 million, there are versions coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2015. The next landmark stretch goal will resolve your question about why it will be coming to current gen consoles in 2015 instead of the next-gen many of us will be playing by then. It’s still a ways out at $3.3 million, but that goal will get extra levels, modes, and PS4/XB1 versions. The Kickstarter ends October 31, 2013. So get over there if you want to get them the extra million dollar push to next-gen. (Read More)

Mega Man-Klon: The Mighty No. 9 mit Kickstarter-Kampagne

September 3rd - via: pcgameshardware.de
Die Kickstarter-Kampagne für The Mighty No. 9 ist weiter ein voller Erfolg. Die minimal benötigten 900.000 US-Dollar hat man bereits locker in der Tasche, im Moment steht der Zähler bei 1,245 Mio. US-Dollar. Wie immer wird der Anfangsschwung etwas nachlassen, sodass die von Kicktraq prognostizierten 9,9 Mio. US-Dollar ziemlich sicher nicht eintreten werden. Trotz allem dürften die bisher kommunizierten Stretch Goals, die bis 2,5 Mio. US-Dollar reichen, nicht besonders lange halten. Bei 1,35 Mio. US-Dollar kommen Linux- und Mac-Versionen, bei 1,5 Mio. US-Dollar gibt es einen New-Game-Plus-Modus sowie eine Turbo-Variante. Man darf gespannt sein, welche erweiterten Ziele noch aufgerufen werden, um die Finanzierungslaune auf hohem Niveau zu halten. Schon jetzt ist sicher, dass das Projekt zu den erfolgreichsten überhaupt gehören wird bei einer Restlaufzeit von 26 Tagen. (Read More)
