Mighty Mighty Becker Backers!

Wow, do we have a big day in store for you today... Three big doozies, one after the other! (And that’s not even counting our Call community vote, coming in another update later today!)

To start things off, let’s get physical! (BTW, if you’re here for the podcast, just keep scrolling, you’ll get to it :)


That’s right! Due to overwhelming fan requests, we are happy to offer extra, physical copies (of the Steam PC, Mac, or Linux version) of Mighty No. 9 for an additional price!

These are called “add-ons” because they are items you can order individually, by “adding on” money to your existing Kickstarter pledge (these aren’t yet available on our PayPal page, but will be very soon!).

For our Kickstarter-based fans: Everyone at $20 and above already gets one digital download copy of whatever one version of Mighty No. 9 they would like—but if you want to add-on extra money for extra copies of the game, with this you can!

Here’s what we’re offering, along with prices for both (domestic and international):

  • An extra physical copy of Mighty No. 9 on disc (Steam version for PC, Mac, or Linux ONLY, your choice—you will choose via a survey later): Add $26 to your pledge ($31 for international backers) 
(above) Please bear in mind the disc-art is a placeholder mockup and will change!
  • An extra physical copy of Mighty No. 9 on a special USB memory stick shaped like either an NES or Famicom cartridge (Steam version for PC, Mac, or Linux ONLY, your choice—you will choose both the platform, and whether you want the NES design or the Famicom design via a survey later): Add $36 to your pledge ($41 for international backers) 

(above) These are renders FanGamer is working on of what these USB “carts” will roughly look like; please bear in mind the labels are placeholder mockups and will change, but you can get a sense of the scale by the size of the USB connector.

See anything you like? Here’s how to adjust your Kickstarter pledge to order it!

STEP 1. Everyone who has already pledged to the Kickstarter at any level will see a “Manage Your Pledge” button on the upper right of the Kickstarter page. Click this button, then adjust the amount of your pledge there, in green (see prices above, or check below for some common examples). You should not change your reward tier.

STEP 2. Next click “Continue to Next Step” and finally “Confirm.” Don’t worry that you haven’t told us which version of the game you want for your extra copies yet! After the campaign is over, you will get a survey confirming exactly which items you want added on, and which versions—if applicable—of these items you would like! 

And that’s it! Not so hard, right? Well, just in case, let’s walk through the math of some common use cases, so you can make sure you have the idea. Again, you can use add-ons for any reward tier, in combination with as many add-ons as you like. These are just some random examples!

A few examples of add-on scenarios…

The prices again, in case you forgot: 

  • An extra physical copy of Mighty No. 9 on disc: $26 in the U.S., or $31 international, each
  • An extra physical copy of Mighty No. 9 on a special USB memory stick shaped like either an NES or Famicom cartridge: $36 in the U.S., or $41 international, each

Ex.1 So, for example, let’s say you pledged at the $20 tier already, but you would like an extra physical copy of Mighty No. 9 on disc, for a total of two copies (one digital, one physical)—you would keep your reward tier at $20, and just add $26 (you live in the U.S.) to your pledge: 
$20 + $26 = $46 total pledge

Ex. 2 Another example: If you pledged at the $40 tier already, and would like an extra physical copy of Mighty No. 9 on disc; you would keep your reward tier at $40, and just add $26 (you live in the U.S.) to your pledge:
$40 + $26 = $66 total pledge

Ex. 3 Another example: If you pledged at the $99 tier, and you wanted an extra physical copy of Mighty No. 9 on the special USB stick; you would keep your reward tier at $99, and just add $36 (you live in the U.S.) to your pledge:
$99 + $36 = $135 total pledge

Ex. 4 You can add more than one add-on as well! Let’s say already pledged for $250 (so you’re already getting a game download code), but you also want another copy of the game on disc, and two USB copies (one NES and one Famicom-style, both), for a grand total of four copies of Mighty No. 9! (God bless you!) Also, you live outside of the United States, so you’ll need to use the international prices. In this case, you would keep your reward tier at $250, and add $31, $41, and $41, all to your pledge:
$250 + $31 + $41 + $41 = $363 total pledge

If you’re still having trouble, your best bet for a fast answer might be to ask the kind folks in the comments section of the Kickstarter page to see if they might be willing to help out, or maybe they can check if your math is correct! We’ll be around as much as we can as well, but with the sheer volume of requests, we’re afraid your fellow Beckers are often a better resource for this kind of thing than we are!


Next up, a long-awaited stretch goal announcement:

$3,500,000: PlayStation Vita and 3DS versions! 

That’s right! At this level, we can make digital versions of Mighty No. 9 for the two most popular handheld systems out there: the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS! (These will both be added to the list of available systems to choose from, so every backer who is set to receive a download version of Mighty No. 9 can choose either of these as the system for their game download, instead of a home console or PC version.)

We spent the last few weeks running the numbers and talking with various companies to make certain we could not only deliver great handheld versions of Mighty No. 9, but do it for a price that we could set with confidence. Luckily, we found a great potential partner in Abstraction Games -- the team that recently brought Hotline Miami to PS platforms. If we can hit our stretch goal, they are all set to dive in and handle porting Mighty No. 9 to these handhelds!


And finally -- thanks for your patience, but we’re here at the final Friday of our Kickstarter campaign, which means our final MightyCast! What? No, don’t be sad -- no time for that now, we got too much awesome pod to get castin’ here! Listen in for a breakdown of all the announcements this week (including those in this update below!), your Skype questions, and best of all, an in-depth interview with Mighty No. 9 game designer Tom Pon! This man is a legend to Mega Man fans, and hopefully will be soon to our Mighty No. 9 community as well -- listen in to find out why!

      For the "Mighty No. 9: Official Platform Selection Survey" we are only getting a single choice, so how will we pick which versions we want for the USB addons?

      Queenbelle Delacruz on

      Hi, when I'm going the Fangamer Fulfillment Survey, and it's telling me to add in $10 more for shipping for two add-ons! I thought that the additional cost was only for international :(

    3. Team F on

      Well, I added some money to my pledge in the last minutes to get the physical disc. Still no news about the DRM, even though comcept said in the comments, that they are looking into it again, even though I was hoping that they would say something about it before the time runs out.

      Well, I hope that they will decide to do the right thing before they release the physical discs. Microsoft did decide to do the right thing in the end with the Xbox One and didn't combine DRM with physical discs, so I trust that comcept can do it too.

    4. the white wolf on

      is there any way to add to my pledge now that this is over I wanted to get the CD and both USB's with my $250.00?

    5. Andrew Roazen on

      i screwed up and pledged $26 additional instead of $36 for the USB, can I pledge $10 via paypal?

    6. Team F on

      @ Correct, but the physical versions are so far DRM only what is indeed nonsense.

      @Luke Right now they are moderating the final minutes live on I doubt anyone will announce anything new about the issue since they are all busy. Would be cool though if they'd cover this though...

    7. Michael J Modjeska on

      From the main page: Mighty No. 9 is being developed for the PC with gamepad support (of course!), and will be made available through Steam and DRM-free digital distribution methods.

    8. Luke Keppler

      Any word on whether the physical copy will be playable without Steam or any Internet/code nonsense (i.e., DRM-FREE)?

      I just backed so I could leave this comment. I'll "un-back" before the time runs out if I don't get a response. The last thing I need is some physical object connected to a Steam account.

    9. Michael J Modjeska on

      I pledged the $250 tier, with 3 physical copies, CD and both USB's. Yet I still have a question. What if I want another digital copy? For example, if I take an XBOX version, but might also want a portable version too, will an option come later to buy additional digital copies?

    10. Isai Sayeg on

      THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the answer! :D @Philipp

    11. Team F on

      @Isai I would say it is $120 + $26 (for the disc) + $36 for the USB = $182 if I am not mistaken.

      Mayo on

      If I pledged by Paypal for 60$ tier + 36$, I still receive the 60$ tier and the USB copy right? Cause if not, I'm gonna have to cancel the pledge by Paypal and repledge with amazon payments.

    13. Isai Sayeg on

      If I pledge the 120 tier reward, how much would I need to put extra for both a Famicom USB and a Disc because right now I only put $120? I need help Beckers!

    14. Missing avatar

      Josue Romero Cespedes on

      Philipp actually I pledge $60 and raised $36 for a total of $96, so if I understand well if I add $36 more to the $96 pledge without changing my reward tier of $60 I get 2 physical copies of the game.

    15. Missing avatar

      Josue Romero Cespedes on

      Thanks Brian, so if I raise my pledge up to $132 without changing my reward tier ($60) I get two USB copies of the game, is that correct?

    16. Team F on

      @Josue So your original pledge was $90 and you already added $36 to get a USB stick so right now your pledge is $126? I would guess that then you just add again $36 for a total of $162 and get then two USB sticks, for example one in NES and one in SNES design. But no guarantee, all those examples let it really look a little confusing ;-)

    17. Missing avatar

      Brian Edward Wiebe on

      Josue, if you pledge for the $60 tier, and add $36 to it once to get a single extra physical copy on the USB stick, you would then have $96 pledged and the $60 reward tier selected. If you wanted to get a SECOND USB stick, you would then do $60 + $36 + $36 or $132 pledged, with the reward tier still at the $60 tier. Does that make sense?

      Josue Romero Cespedes on

      Hey guys! I need a little help here.
      I raised my pledge to get an extra copy of Mighty No.9 in USB, but actually I wanted a second one I saw the instructions and Comcept say that we can add more than one copy, from here I understan very well, my confussion is that if I already raised my pledge...can I raised one more time for a second copy of the physical game?? I pledged for $60 and I raised to $36, if I raised $36 more I get to physical copies? please help! and thanks to all of you Mighty Beckers! :D

    19. Team F on

      @DivineWrath Right now it says everywhere here that the physical disc will be Steam only which means it will be DRM crippled and work only as long as Valve will be in business. This of course makes the main reason for having a disc useless which is for old school collectors really owning the game and being able to still play it in a couple of years without having to be online and asking somewhere for permission.
      Still surprises me that the people at comcept who made the decision didn't get it WHY people want a physical version.
      Anyway, no need to check the details, someone using comcepts account answered in this thread before:

      "We hear the feedback re: a DRM-free version; one big issue there was updating to the latest version once you, say, pull your game out a couple years form now and want to patch it. We looked at the complexity of offering all the version to version updates separately from something like Steam, and couldn't see a clear, clean path we could guarantee through it, so felt it best to play it safe.

      However, that feedback is all being heard, and will be passed along, so thank you all for sharing (`_´)ゞ"

      I was hoping we would get a clear reply before the time is over but doesn't look like it now. I and probably a few more people would have raised their pledge for sure already but so far I am still hesitating. I somehow trust that later they will make the right choice but not sure yet. A disc with a Steam game I just don't want in my collection for the same reason I hated the original Xbox One approach of Microsoft.
      I get the reason for making sure we can update, but I would still prefer a DRM free disc, even if it is not upgradeable.

      DivineWrath on

      There does appear to be some confusion as to whether or not this game is DRM free. I've looked and there appears to be a choice of what digital distribution platform you get to use. Steam is only one of those options. Other options include DRM free digital distributors. It is mentioned a few times on the front page.

      However, it seems that the physical copies of the game may be DRM only. I'm still checking details though.

    21. Steven Drake Jr. on

      @Gaelen I would have to think so...but that's a good question and one that I'm curious about as well now.

    22. Missing avatar

      Gaelen Karol on

      So if I get the add-on copy will both copies (say steam and ps4 for instance) have the gold beck and transformation content that backers will get?

    23. Steven Drake Jr. on

      @Rodrigo though it's not a bad idea...I highly doubt it....I haven't seen anything saying that you can get more than one digital download. You'll just have to buy/download the 2nd copy when it's released. Myself I'm choosing the free digital download for the wii u, added on $36 for the usb nes stick and plan on buying the 3DS download when it's released.

    24. Rodrigo Fantucci on

      Sorry for my poor english in that question...

    25. Rodrigo Fantucci on

      People would like to help me take a doubt.
      I made a request for $ 60, all digital. If I want a second digital copy of the game for the 3DS, just have to add another $ 20 on my request. Is that right?

    26. Steven Drake Jr. on

      @Philipp I agree 100% with you on every aspect of what you just said. And yeah that's exactly why they brought this project to kickstarter and I feel blessed to have had a voice and opinion on the game I've been dreaming of for 20+ years :) Trust me I'm not here to argue with anyone on anything. All I'm saying is whatever end result we get is what we get and whatever result that may be I know I'm guna thrilled with it and I just want every other hardcore fan of the genre to be happy with what we get as well. This project brought us all together to help decide how our dream game is finally going to turn out. It's just there's alot of people complaining and it upsets and baffles me...ya know? Lol because I'm just like whatever n stuff i just wish i had a time machine set for 2015 lol We all have our opinions on it and that's the point here :)

      Stephen Pikey on

      I think for every $20 you pledge you get one copy or something like that. I would like to have a PC, PS4, and Vita version of the game. I don't need a physical copy of the game. I prefer to download them all to my systems.

    28. Team F on

      @Steven I am sure everyone here is happy that Inafune is doing this, but that doesn't mean we can criticize some decisions and he said himself in all those interviews/documentaries that he cares about feedback. I think if people just give positive feedback becasue they think negitive would be blasphemy, that wouldn't be very useful for him.

      And personally I (and many others from what I saw) just want a clear answer about the DRM issue on the physical discs and comcept made a reply here 4 days ago that they listen and want to look into it. I am still waiting for a result and hope we get it before the time runs out, I would add the amount immediately.

    29. GunplaGamer on

      What if I want a PC, PS4 version and a vita version?

    30. Steven Drake Jr. on

      @Russell Long You ain't kiddin dude I'm tired of hearing it too! Y'all should feel PRIVILEGED that Inafune is doing this for us...I do! I've been screaming at Crapcom for 5 years and thanks to the awesome people at Comcept we can finally stop all the screaming leave the past in the past and push on into an amazing future of gaming thanks to Mighty no. 9 AKA the game we've been begging for for years! :)

      @Russel People ask legit questions here, if someone is whining here it is you.

      Matthew Sergi on

      If I get the physical USB cartridge or the disk of the PC version, will I still have to download Steam in order to play the game? I don't have it installed on my computer, and I don't want to install it just to play one game.

    33. Steven Drake Jr. on usb or not to usb? That is the question...

      Russell Long on

      Y'all need to shut yer yaps and quit whining. Nobody HAS to do anything for you. Our pledges are just that, PLEDGES that we're going to help them make an awesome game that will totally blow socks off feets. They don't need to give us any of the rewards but they are because they're cool dudes and dudettes. If you want to pay the extra for your own piece of video game history (I have) then, Yay! Thanks for being super crazy radical. If not, Meh. It's your own money, do what you want. Just gettin' kinda sick of the entitled vibe we're giving off. Y'all sound like spoiled brats.

    35. Paul Butterworth on

      As backers, we should get to know what's happening with the DRM, copies, multiple versions, etc. I gave over $250 and I'd like to play on all machines withoutpaying for each copy. Also, this shipping cost business is making me say screw it over the USB sticks which otherwise I would've loved to have. ($41?!)

      G Ang on

      I think the physical copy should be part of the pledge already. It certainly feels like a major rip off after having a lot of the good physical stuff locked away at extremely premium levels. Certainly losing enthusiasm for this if this keeps up, since the rep of recent projects does not live up to the lofty expectations.

      I already have pledged at the $60 Game Box since i live in Canada the price went previously rose to 75, i was wondering if anyone actually whatever if 75 or 106 would be enough to get the USB stick versions of the might no 9?

      What about digital addons? I'd love a digital copy for the WiiU & 3DS, or for two 3DS's.

      @Arron Womack - You seem to misunderstand, yes the physical version of the game is steam only. However, you can choose whatever system you want it on for the digital copy of the game since now it will be available on all of the current consoles including the PS4 and Xbox One.

      I regretfully must cancel my pledge! I'm so happy that I noticed that this was only a Steam version!! You don't own games on Steam: you rent them for as long as Valve is in business. I really, really wanted a physical copy to call my own, but I guess I'll just change to digital pledge since it's not really physical. I feel a bit deceived by this. I think a lot of people are going to feel the same way. You should have put in the description originally that it was only a Steam version. Just think about the Xbox One fiasco...
