At $2,802,326, Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune’s new Mega Man game in all but name, is sitting mighty pretty high above its initial Kickstarter target of $900,000 and now, with 3 days left in its campaign, you can get a peek at the action going on at developer Comcept.
Today, a new documentary video about the game from 2 Player Productions, who has similarly covered the development of projects from studios like Mojang and Double Fine. The video covers the weeks leading up to Mighty No. 9’s announcement at PAX Prime, following around members of the development team, Inafune included, as they prepare the game for its big debut.
The video below is the first in a series of videos that 2 Player will create over the course of the game’s development. Three episodes were originally promised, though considering that the episode below is “Episode 0”, it’s likely that number will end up being four.
Mighty No. 9 has made enough cash to clear two extra stretch goals, allowing Comcept to include a challenge mode in addition to an extra endgame stage and boss. At this point, it’s hard to tell if the campaign will be able to acquire the $3.3 million needed to get the game onto the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Whatever the case, the game is scheduled to arrive on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, Mac and Linux at some point around April 2015.
