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!

      How will the physical game be shipped? Lets say I've backed $20+26 to get the physical disc, will I not get a box and manual for it/will it be shipped in a cardboard sleeve? To get the box/manual would I need to back the $40+26?

    2. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Nitai - Sorry, but not at this time, that isnt an option. All console and handheld versions, if reached, will be DLC

      Nitai Sasson on

      I want a 3DS cartridge. Can I have that?

    4. Mighty No. 466 on

      Kurtis - I like the USB options. Not so much for the game on PC, but for the nostalgia of an NES cartridge, lol

    5. Kurtis the Red on

      I was flipping out when I read about physical copies...then I saw it was for the PC platforms only. I love my physical media, I try to get discs as much as I can, especially on home consoles. For PC though, I prefer digital downloads.

    6. Mighty No. 466 on

      The company is also called Comcept USA LLC, but we all know they are in Japan. So, that doesnt help either, lol

      No problem. I could see why you might be confused, it is odd when talking about international being outside the US for a Japanese made game.

    8. Mighty No. 466 on

      Hey, everyone!!! Im back for a bit

    9. milton sabido on

      Oh Yeah! I guess It really was a stupid question.
      I really need to start reading things thoroughly......
      Thank You!

    10. mrfatso ~ Defender of The Goat on

      what about digital add-on? How much should we up for an additional key?

    11. Missing avatar

      Alex Thompson on

      The reward teirs with physical items say things like: "Add $20 USD to ship outside the US "
      And the fact that it's in USD, I'd say that the US is not international for this kickstarter.

    12. milton sabido on

      This May sound like a stupid question but Is USA considered international here, Since the game is being made in Japan?
      Do USA backers have to add the International shipping?

    13. Immorrel on

      NES cartridge USB, here I come.

      Alex Thompson on

      I wonder if I get the Gold Beck and transformation for the digitial AND physical copy if I do this.

    15. Aisu on

      @ nicolas I think 31

    16. acediez on

      If I already added $30 USD for international shipping, should I add $31 to get the physical copy, or is $26 enough since I'm already paying for shipment?

    17. Alex Grave

      Incredible how strong a bond a project like this can create between us backers - I mean Beckers!! :D

    18. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Scott - And Thank you!!! We are all in this together my friend!

    19. Scott Fraser on

      I'll really miss the mightycasts... thanks a lot all you guys for making this a possibility and for mighty no 9!

    20. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Alex - anytime. Sorry about to confusion up front

    21. Alex Grave

      @Mighty No. 466 - ahh, okay, I get it now^_^ thanks for clearing that up!

    22. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Moroni - Thanks man!

    23. Aisu on

      man no 466 you rock

    24. Mighty No. 466 on

      Jhan - That is an ex-xel-ent question that I do not know. But I feel you might get a good answer at the main comments page. Especially if Comcept is there.

    25. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Everyone - I will be leaving for quite a while in 20 mins. As always, I suggest everyone go to the main comments page. Many people there know the answer to these questions and Comcept might even reply! Plus, we still want to beat that comment record! (`_´)ゞ

    26. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Ruban - No. Your reward tier is going to come with a digital version regardless. The physical add-on will be a separate extra copy of the game

    27. Jhan Miran on

      Do you consider Guam (a U.S. territory) to be within the U.S. or International?

    28. Ruben van Ophuizen on

      I reiterate my question: Can I get the USB stick without having to buy the same game twice? If I can just skip the Download code and only get the game on USB?

    29. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Braden - Yes, if you are getting DVD, then $146

    30. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Braden - That is correct

    31. Braden on

      sorry, $146 was what I meant

    32. Braden on

      So, for clarity's sake:
      I can pledge enough to get a CONSOLE version* and just add $26 to get the USB version?

      *My current pledge is the $120, I would pay $156?

    33. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Ookamisuke - Yup! You get a the digital copy for your reward. Then you if get the physical add-on, it is a separate copy of the game you paid for!

    34. Mighty No. 466 on

      @lauren - After the KS is over, they will know the systems they have to make the game for in full. Then they will send a survey out, not sure exactly when, for you to choose the platform you want your game for. At this point, I am not sure the physical copy will be for anything other than PC. But I dont own a vita or DS, so Im not sure if you can download games on those yet for sure, but I think you can. So, I think you will be able to download a copy for 3DS and then get the physical PC version with your add on

      Ookamisuke Babenco on

      I am rather...confused here. I am at the 120 pledge marker, and I want to get my physical copy of the game on the USB Stick....Is ti possible to get my digital copy, -and- just -one- physical copy on the special USB Stick?

    36. Mighty No. 466 on

      Nashmy - You will get one DLC code for what ever platform you want, but only the one per pledge

    37. Lauren Miller on

      Ok so I couldn't leave this alone any longer I had to buy it lol Did the $20.00 Pledge and went back to put in the $26.00 for the physical copy. Will I be able to choose two different version for them? I really want a 3DS version with the Steam physical copy. Also when will we able to pick which systems we want for them? I noticed when I funded it didn't have the options. Will this come later on?

    38. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Joe - Yes, just add it on to what you already pledged

    39. Nashmy Marquez on

      Will my extra copy of the game have Gold Beck and the Transformation? Im On the $120 Pledge, I Must Know! Thanks!

    40. Particle Accelerator on

      @Joe you just add it to your pledge amount, you don't click anything else.

      Joe Muscedere on

      @Mighty No. 466 ok do i just add it or do i click somthing

    42. Brian Tilton on

      I already pledged to get the two game boxes. And now I need the two usb drives... What have you done to me Comcept!? (ノ ̄д ̄)ノ

    43. Mighty No. 466 on

      Did I scare everyone away???? Hehe

    44. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Joe - A total of 96 if in US, 101 if outside the US

      @Chris - Not that I disagree with portable part.

      Khris Droz on

      I knew the Final Stretch goal would deal with the 3DS and Vita. I can understand why the price is so high, and I can also understand if we don't reach the goal. Already pledged $100 to get some really good stuff, and if we can't make that Final Stretch Goal, then I will be A-OK on that! (can't always get what you want, right?)

    48. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Chris - The game doesnt release until 2015, well after the consoles are out

    49. Nathan Rettig on

      Wow! I haven't even watched the podcast yet, but this is an awesome announcement, man now in the next 3 days I have even more to think about making my final choice on pledge level... I kinda really want a physical copy I think I really want one of the Custom USB Sticks the mock-up looks cool enough! I normally prefer the CD based version but I have to make a choice and that USB sure feels like it's calling my name.

      Also Great news glad we now have the potential to reach another group audience with the portable devices! I'll be getting Console / PC myself but the more the merrier right!!!
