Last night Keiji Inafune’s new project, Mighty No. 9, met its Kickstarter goal that would see a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U version of the game released. Currently the project is still live in Kickstarter with 14 more days left to gather funding. The next stretch goal is at $2.4 million, which will see a challenge mode added to the game.

Many of you were excited about this project as it is a spiritual successor to Mega Man in nearly every sense of the word and now, you’ll be able to play it on Wii U. The game is set to launch some time in spring of 2015, according to current developer estimates.

    Awesome! day 1 purchase for sure 😀

    Off topic- Who else got GTAV ? Holy crap it’s freakin immense. My only ONLY problem with the game is the framerate, it would be a slightly more enjoyable game if the framerate was a bit more consistent….

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Just got my copy a few min ago. Once it’s done installing I’ll probably be off having fun. 🙂

      I think most games suffer some framerate issues, though. That’s a common problem with most games today. I don’t let them bother me. The game is still bad ass.

      • Nintedward

        Yeah, the game is absolutely bad ass. But it would be slightly more enjoyable and playable if the framerate was say a locked 30fPS instead of anywhere between 20-30fpS…

        • Gabe Hoffman

          The framerate issues I kinda expected. Given how huge this game is supposed to be it would be pushing it to the point where smoke could start coming outta the 360

          • ScrewAttack

            Yet it’s not on Wii U or other next gen consoles, the ones that could make the most of it…

            But anyway, interested in Number 9. Not heard much about it, but I’ve often wanted to get into Mega Man so why not!

          • Nintedward

            Yeh…. just think how much CPU is required to control all of the things in San andreas…. biggest game world ever by far.

        Just playing with Micheal according to what I have heard the PS3 has frame rate issues and Xbox has performance issues. Some say the Xbox is the best ver so I am wondering you guys like me having the PS3 version. Anyways to each of his own but still the game is really perfect. With the updates it will be better.

    • Truthteller

      Are you on a 360 or PS3? I will install mine on a USB drive as I do for graphically intense games. I have to learn the game by Oct. as I am currently the ultimate master of GTV IV online, so I must keep my crown.

        Yeh man I read that before I got the game and did it! I didn’t install the play disc. But thanks anyway!

    • Louie

      I haven’t had any frame rate issues, its the texture pop in that detracts from the game experience for me, but that tiny issue aside, its awesome!

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I think it was obvious that it’d hit its stretch goal.

  • SonicLucario

    Yea Im thinking about getting this, Im really happy to hear that its gonna be coming to the WiiU

  • NextChannelGames

    Day 1 purchase for me! I well get for Mac, Wii U and PS3! I can’t wait to see the game in action and also hope we well reach the 3.3 million goal so that people who get PS4 and Xbox One can enjoy the game to.

  • Eduardo

    Now your playing with Power. 🙂

  • Marcus Navarro

    It may be because I haven’t had a girlfriend in about a year now, but that logo… Why that shape and position? Just why?

  • NextChannelGames

    We should help support WayForwards game Shantae Half-Genie Hero to reach its goal. There’re only about 90k away to reach it. Let’s all support and help wayforward to make this game happen for all consoles

  • Rémi

  • MississaugaMaverick
