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 :)

EXTRA COPIES OF MIGHTY NO. 9, ON A DISC OR USB “CARTRIDGE”, AVAILABLE AS ADD-ONS!

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!

      Please reconsider releasing the handhelds BEFORE the next-gen consoles. Portability sounds so much more attractive than having to wait until the system releases for the same game I can play on current-gen. I want my Beck and Call on the go!!!

    2. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Tommy - Every pledge, regardless of digital or physical, get one code for gold Beck/Transformation.

      The digital one is literally just the manual and what not in digital form. I guess a lot of people called for it that wanted the art, but not the actual box and manual

    3. Tommy Brewster on

      Ok so just making sure here...the only difference between the two $60 pledges is one is all digital and comes with a special transformation, and the other doesn't have the transformation and comes with a physical retro game box?

    4. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Esai - anytime my friend!

    5. Esai Munoz on

      Got it!! thanks, it is confusing the way it is explained. Thank you!

    6. Mighty No. 466 on

      Esai- Add 36 to what ever your pledge is. The 36 is only for the game, not the reward tier. So if you pledge 20 to start, add 36 for a total of 56

    7. Esai Munoz on

      What number i have to put in the green box... I put 36 is that how it works?

    8. Jacob Nazon on

      @Particle Accelerator: Okay so i can add the total. I just wanted to make sure. Thank you.

    9. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Esai - So 56 total if you pledged 20

    10. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Esai - Sorry, just looked on you profile. Ok, you are in the US, so just add 36 more to your pledge amount but leave it at the same reward. Thats it

    11. Jacob Nazon on

      @Esai Munoz: If you live in the US you just add $36 to your pledge, or $41 if you are outside the US. You don't have to change your tier, so you can just add the amount in the "Manage your Pledge" button.

    12. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Esai - Where do you live?

    13. Particle Accelerator on

      @Jacob "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" you add the total of the three add ons, or however many you want.

    14. Esai Munoz on

      I need a answer, I pledged 20 but i want the USB what do I do? I add $41 to my pledge or $21? I don't get it, its confusing!!!

    15. Jacob Nazon on

      Okay i've got a question.
      Right now i've pledged $250, and lets say i want all three add-ons.
      Do i add their prices to the pledge individually (EX: $250+$36 then confirm then restart process for the others) or can i just pay the price all at once (Ex: $250 + $98). I just want to clarify if that is valid or not. Thanks in advance.

      Finished to listen the podcast.

      It was great to listened you all this fridays, guys, I will miss you, really.

      The Ton Pon interview was very interesting, and I can't wait to see all the surprises this game will have.

    17. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Alex - Your mighty no is given out when the KS ends and before the forums open. But I noticed you asked before the KS ended after I posted and was trying to clear up that they will not be handed out until after the KS ends

      @Particle Accelerator

      Yeah I totally understand that I'm also disappointed they went the Steam route instead of something like GOG.

    19. Particle Accelerator on

      @Aaron Savadge, Yes, pre-existing tiers can't be modified and the pages can't be modified after Kickstarter ends. But, I can't justify buying a 'steam' usb when I don't even use steam, no matter how much I want it. Sigh.

    20. Missing avatar

      Green on

      @Particle Accelerator

      Yes. This was an easier solution to adding a whole mess of new tiers since according to Kickstarter rules, pre-existing tiers cannot be edited.

      Lindsay Berkovitz on

      I would love the NES USB stick to come packaged with a console code of your choice so that everyone could enjoy the new proffered items-not just the PC/MAC/LINUX Users. I mean, they could still give you the collectible USB, leave it blank but have the console code on another piece of paper-or whatever they like- and ship it together...Done :-)

      @moses johnson

      But USB flash drives are not like old video game cartridges. Their storage life before succumbing to bit rot is far less permanent.

    23. Particle Accelerator on

      I'm confused, no matter what tier we pledge we have to buy the 'add-on' to get a physical copy of the game ...?

    24. Missing avatar

      jumpnett on

      Actually add-ons for all the physical items would be cool. That way we can pick and choose what we want.

    25. Missing avatar

      jumpnett on

      Can we get addons for the hard cover art book, and t shirt as well?

    26. Billy Lam on

      @ Sapphire - Lol so instead of an all digital reward tier an all physical reward tier? XD I dunno if that'd work since it would mean all tiers above it would get the extra copy which would mean concept would be losing possible funds that would go this game. :T

    27. Alex Grave

      @Mighty No. 466 - You posted two replies for me right after each other, so which one is it. Are the personal Mighty Numbers only until the kickstarter ends, or do I get it when it ends? Cuz if they expire when the kickstarter ends, why haven't I gotten mine yet? It would make most sense if I got mine when the kickstarter ends, as mine credit Card afterall doesn't get charged untill the kickstarter ends.

      Inazuma on

      A physical version that looks like a Famicom cartridge? I raised my pledge from $20 to $96. Thank you very much. (^_^)

      moses johnson on

      For those who are contemplating getting a physical copy, I would definitely recommend getting one of the USB versions of the game over the CD. CD's are cheap to manufacture, and thus maintain less value over time. One also has to remember that CD’s can be scratched or copied, which also decreases their value. Cartridges on the other hand can't get scratched, can't be copied with a burner, and will likely be unique enough (due to the NES shape) to maintain more of their value over time.

      @Mighty No. 466 - Thanks for the reply. Wish we had more to go on besides a "feeling" ;)

    31. Mighty No. 466 on

      Sorry folks that might have gained some help form me, lol, but I have to go to a lunch meeting for work, so I must leave you. I still suggest anyone who hasnt migrated to the main comment page should do so. A lot of good info and debates going on. Comcept is in from time to time and will try to answer questions too, but what they dont, someone there probably knows anyways. LOL, have a good day guys, see ya later!!! (`_´)ゞ

    32. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Justin - That is the feeling they have given. An old NES/Famicom style box and manual

    33. Justin

      Do we know what the physical box is going to look like? Will it be retro shape and size?

    34. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Aaron - also a good point!

      If the stretch goal isn't reached it doesn't necessarily mean a portable version will never happen.

    36. Mighty No. 466 on

      @bunny - I dont think it is easy to switch cost wise. To port from an old console to the next console is much less expensive than porting to handhelds. And who says by 2015 the 3DS and Vita will be used. Sony and Nintendo have to be working on the next line of handhelds. But to each is own, thats what makes the world fun!

    37. Æthereal Bunny on

      Hmm... I must agree with Stormwind there... Vita and 3DS are already own well enough, and much more of a guarantee. Sales on those would undoubtedly be higher in general.I think that would be the best move, to switch around the two stretch goals.

      Let's face it, more people asked for handheld versions than next gen home consoles. And other than the WiiU ,the console versions will be on some what outdated consoles, and with the yet unreleased ones, there's a far worse market. The Vita and 3DS would at least be more active.

      They could switch those goals around if people actually say more about it, so if you want that, truly want it, say something!

    38. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Diggeh - You only lose your number if you cancel, editing pledge up or down will not move you place for Might No

    39. Diggeh on

      Do we keep our Mighty No. if we raise our pledge? I want to give more but I don't want to lose my early number.

    40. Mighty No. 466 on

      @bunny - I dont even think Ill use the USB, I just want the NES one to feel warm and fuzzies inside

    41. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Storm - I personally would much rather have the intro stage and support chartacter. But I still think we have a good shot at all the goals

    42. Æthereal Bunny on

      Definitely going for the CD personally... CDs tend to last longer than USB drives, especially concerning use XD;

    43. Sapphire Wong on

      @Mighty No. 466 - I'm on the 250 tier (280 plus shipping).That idea did crossed my mind, but it's a pity cause they will be getting less from me and I would love to own a copy of the hardcover art book too. It's ok, I have 4 more days to think things through, thanks again! :)

    44. Tommy Brewster on

      Hey everyone, just wondering what you all thought would be the better version of the game to have, USB ,disk, or simply digital download?

    45. Stormwind on

      Care level for "nextgen" release - negative a lot. I'd rather have handheld versions.
      Swat these two stretch goals - this way you are more likely to reach them in these three days.

    46. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Sapphire - I also hope they rellease it to the public for most systems to, then they could make even more for Mighty No 9 Part Duex! Just an idea though, you could always drop you pledge down to 20(if you are above that) and put anything left to the physical copy. The money would still go to the stretch goals and game and youd get a physical copy. Dont know what you are at now, but that is an idea Ive seen a lot of folks doing

    47. Sapphire Wong on

      @Mighty No. 466 - Ah, ok. xD Lol I would love to support them even more by getting the physical games but I am at my limit right now, I can only hope for them to sell the physical copies after KS and throw more money to them as well.

    48. Hitokiri_Ace on

      I think these are awesome things to add. :)
      I added the NES-style USB drive.

      I would prefer to have the DRM-free version on there.. but I understand what you mean about keeping it up-to-date with the latest version and such.. I hope you figure something out! :) I'd really enjoy knowing that in 10 years, I could pop in that gorgeous flash drive.. and play an old classic. :)

    49. Mighty No. 466 on

      @Sapphire - I dont not think the add-on for physical game comes with any box or manual that I know of. The ones on the reward tiers are for collectors items. They werent meant to come with a game as Comcept never planned on making physical copies, we talked them into it, lol
