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!

      What kind of packaging will the disc copy come in? Just a generic clam-shell or jewel case?

      Sorry everyone, got called into a meeting as soon as I got in here. But I am back now

      Bummer! While I appreciate the concept of a physical release, I must admit that the possibility the game will be locked to a Steam account is pretty unappealing. If anything, a DRM free version would be more sensible to me given the longevity of a physical product.

      Sounds awesome, but I can't buy anything right now.
      Will I be able to buy it when I will acquired money (that will be
      for Christmas, I'm afraid)?

      @Random Couch I more meant with how the disc listed isn't for console as an option.

    7. Alex Grave

      What is DRM people?? :-/

    8. Random Couch on

      The physical game box reward tier is just that.......a box and manual. no game comes inside it

      @Ignacio Gutierrez

      The physical version is an extra copy, so yes you'll still get the download code for your 360 version on top of the physical copy.

    10. Missing avatar

      Jerr on

      @Ignacio Gutierrez Yeah I'm a little confused too. I pledged $60 for the physical, but with the PS3 version in mind, myself. I'm not even sure how possible a PS3 physical disc would work out with it...

    11. Rullakebab99 on

      My god, a 3DS port? This a dream?? O_o

      we need co-op damnit!!! come on guys!!

    13. Otakurican on

      @Kite: It's more than likely that you will get a download code specifically for the game version of your choice. As for content for multiple version of said game, depending on the reward tier you pledged, you will more than likely get the download codes for said copies.

      For example:

      If I chose to get a PS3 version of the game, I will receive the download codes for that version of the game. If I choose the Steam version of the game, they will send me the code specifically for the Steam version.

      And in the case that I choose to get both a PS3 copy and a Steam copy of the game, it is more than likely that you will receive download codes for each copy of the game. If they send the codes in the form of vouchers, they will more than likely specify in the vouchers which code is for which version of the game.

      I hope this has been helpful. Good day, fellow Beckers! (`_´)ゞ

      @the_importer It's your money, man. Do what you must.
      I just hope you won't miss the hardcover-signed artbook, poster, shirt, the game boxes, OST, manuals, mascot plushie, beta-access for the game, golden skin and exclusive transformation that much just for the sake of having around a game disc.

      @Mighty No. 466
      Since comments are pretty nuts today when you get the package send me an email with your reaction

    16. Alex Grave

      @Mighty No. 466: How did you get your Mighty Number already?? I thought we didn't get 'em till the campaign was over? O:

    17. Jesse Rockman Godłów on

      @Mighty No. 466

      Most of us seem to be quite upset at the lack of DRM versions and the lack of the USB/Disc included in the physical pledges... :(

    18. Aisu on

      @ the_importer this is what comcept said to someon who had the same opion as you (also someone in the community gave him the money to get the physical item)

      1. @Derrick Alecci -- Your funds absolutely do make a difference -- everyone’s' do. All that big number is a bunch of other people like you and me; so like i say, we want to do all we can to keep you happy. But I'm sorry we can't offer what you're hoping for, for the reasons I laid out. I hope you stay with us but understand whatever your decision -- thanks for letting us know your feelings either way. (`_´)ゞ
      1. @Derrick Alecci -- I'm sorry to hear your disappointment; we actually looked into offering this kind of deal so people could choose one or the other, but logistically it just wasn't possible. The amount of reward tiers to add, and the fact that we can't change the language on our existing reward tiers due to KS rules, means that there was no way to do something like you describe. Offering these as an add-on was the best we could do to try and fill the community demand we kept hearing for something like this. We tried to be clear about what the status and possibility was along the way -- saying several times if we offered this it would be as a physical reward -- but we realize it is totally possible to have missed all those updates and messages from us. All we can really say is we hope you see where we are coming from on this, and that we really are trying our best to satisfy as many as we can here, even though we realize it can't be everyone. Thanks for reading this.

      Comcept does care

    19. Ignacio Gutierrez on

      Can you guys clear something out for me ??.... My original pledge is intended for the 360 version in mind.. digital copy.
      This usb physical copy is for pc only.. got it..

      but if I add the extra bucks for a Physical copy means I can have my 360 digital copy of my pledge and additionally a physicall copy for the PC version (meaning 2 licences: 1 PC & 1 Xbox360)?

      Or the only fact that finally I want the xbox 360 version, excludes me from the option to get this other copy ? how would that work ?...

    20. Nate Sickler

      Yes! GOG, what Aaron Savadge said. I don't exactly know how that would work with a physical release but GOG is legit, and best of all DRM free.

    21. Mighty No. 466 on

      Hey everyone! Hoping over from main comments page. How is everyone here?

    22. the_importer on

      @César H. Sandoval: Fine, then if nothing changes before the 1st of October, I'll lower me pledge from $280 to $20 and then add $26 + $5 and that will be the cost of a traditional game.

    23. Kite Stenbuck on

      Nice to hear a confirmation on the portable versions! Really hope we can get that stretch goal because PSV version has been a top priority for me XD

      I have a question though about the in-game exclusive content edition. For example if I choose PSV version in the upcoming survey I'll be getting a download code of the game that'll have the exclusive content for PSV, right?
      But I wonder if there is some way that, if I then want to get the game for PC & PS3/4 as well, will it be possible to have the exclusive content edition for those other versions too?

      Going to sleep now since it's midnight at my place, so thank you in advance :)

    24. César H. Sandoval on

      The last Megaman game that got released on physical mediums costed 50-60$

      Fairly expensive? 26$ for this game is cheap as hell IMHO.

    25. Missing avatar

      Green on

      I think some people are overreacting to the extra cost. This is not something that they originally intended and frankly I'm impressed they managed to hammer out a physical game solution in less than a month. It's too late for them to rework all of the reward tiers now. Remember that Kickstarter is not a store, no one is forcing you to donate more for the physical copy.

      I would suggest however maybe adding a $26 tier so that people can choose only the physical copy instead of having to pay extra for two copies of the game that they don't need.

      I also agree that you should reconsider having a DRM free version of the game on physical media, maybe through GOG or something if you're concerned about how to distribute updates.

      There is a lot of concern from people who just want to be able to play the game years from now and not have to worry about Steam or any other DRM service, even if they can't update to the latest version they would at least feel that they could still play it.

    26. Alex Grave

      I'm getting a NES-USB port additional to my $20 digital PS3 copy :3

    27. Team F on

      I would prefer a disc if it were DRM free, but there will still be the option for a DRM free version on PC, right? So if I go with a USB stick, I could just put that on there myself and be happy with it? And about the USB sticks, with how much storage do they come and will they support USB 3.0 speed or just USB 2.0?

    28. the_importer on

      @César H. Sandoval: They know that a lot of people wanted a physical version and are now dangling one over our noses with less than 4 days left and selling them a fairly expensive price in order to raise pledges.

    29. Jesse Rockman Godłów on

      Can we please get a physical disc/usb if we got the physical box reward? Come on, I paid the $250 and I don't wanna add extra just to get the cool USB/Disc :/ It's a physical reward after all, right? Please make an exception for people who pledged at this amount

    30. exarkun02 on

      @Concept :
      I also have a question about the USB add-on, will they come with a special box, or the price juste include the USB stick ?
      Like derek mentionned below, this was a good nostalgia item :

      Any chance to have a third version as SNES cartdridge ?

    31. Brian Denning on

      No, it's nothing like a bait and switch. That's where you offer one good or service, accept money for it, and then provide a DIFFERENT one. Offering one good or service, accepting money for it, and then offering an additional, supplementary good or service is not. That's just business.

    32. César H. Sandoval on

      @the_importer Illegal how? you agreed on getting digital only as Comcept said in the initial KS release when you pledged your money. Now on top of that, Comcept is selling an OPTIONAL physical version to go EXTRA when the digital one you're already getting... No one, including Comcept, is forcing you to buy the extra one, nor are they taking the digital one you already earned away.

      The only way you cold argue you are entitled to the extra version is if the KS had it on it's rules and rewards from Day one.

    33. Nakano

      @Nate I thought PC copies would be Steam only, but you're right the front page suggest there is a DRM free option as well: "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."

      However, the disc/usb is Steam only probably because it's the only easy way to keep the game up to date. Otherwise patches should be publicly offered in Comcept's homepage or elsewhere.

    34. Kira on

      I'm going to miss the MightyCast quite a bit, I hope there'll be something like it after the KS!

      I'm a little unclear on how beta and mutliple copies work, so I have a question about the physical copies and how the Steam keys with them will be distributed-- will they be shipped with the physical copy, or by e-mail as soon as available? For instance, let's say that I have a tier that includes beta access, and also add on for a physicla copy. Could I then pick a console as my main version, but still have access to the Steam beta because of the added physical copy?

    35. Aaron Kaluszka on

      It would be more compelling if each physical game box came with a version of the physical game. It almost sounds like those launch console eBay scalpers who just sell the box to people who don't read carefully :)

    36. the_importer on

      @César H. Sandoval: Actually, I think this is close to "Bait & Switch", which is illegal.

    37. Blugrave on

      I would like to know also about the Golden Beck. How is that going to work for Wii U?

      Secondly I am really eager to get the extra in game transformation but I don't care for the digital stuff. I've already pledged $60 for the physical box and id pay $20 more for just the transformation. Is this possible? It sucks that the 80tier doesn't include the physical box.

    40. ChibiRob on

      @comcept: I'd also like to get the USB add on (It does look cool as all get out) but that whole DRM+Steam thing just isn't my deal. If I'm going to buy it, I want to own it and not have to rely on some 3rd party to "approve" my ability to play it a year, 5yrs, 10yrs from now.

    41. Nate Sickler

      No, why Steam...if the disc had a DRM free copy I would add to my pledge and buy it. This doesn't change the normal digital copy, right? It will still be DRM free?

    42. Fruits on

      emm .. to be honest, when I had physical in mind it was a console one .. thats probably too costy but you asked and its what I hoped for .. also, I don't know the current paypal count but the new 3DS stretch goal is too far (hopefully not) .. last, I wish you could offer double codes option, for example a 3DS and WiiU and so on ..wel, unless the games are identical graphics wise .. if the handheld port is less appealing graphically then I think most would like a DC option .. one for the go and one for the couch :P

    43. Diggeh on

      Hello! I have two quick questions before the Kickstarter ends:
      1) How will the console versions handle the exclusive transformations and Gold Beck? Will we each get a unique code to enter on the menu?

      2) I want to do the $80 beta testing tier, but I noticed that it says "We can only guarantee this reward for PC versions of the game via Steam, ONLY".

      Does that mean Wii U purchasers can't beta test, or does it mean that the beta itself is only on Steam?

    44. KurowaSan on

      @comcept: Considering the stretch goal for handhelds are reached, will the 3DS version be available on the JAPANESE Nintendo eShop?
      I can't believe this is happening. =OO

    45. Jacksukeru on

      @Rhavie A Vasquez "I say anyone who has already pledged $20 or above should receive the physical usb copies for free."

      That's crazy and would eat into the funds collected to make the actual game something fierce. The more money it cost them to fullfill backer rewards, the less polished the game will be.

    46. César H. Sandoval on

      @Rhavie A Vasquez
      Remember guys, these physical goods were never part of the original KS plan and they cost extra money to be made and shipped.
      You can't really say this is a ripoff if you already agreed to make a pledge when you knew there was a digital version only, and is not like comcept can just spawn the discs/USBs into existence for free with no costs to be invested upon.

    47. Team F on

      @comcept: Thanks for the reply and hearing us about the DRM issue. People who ask for a physical version of the game are collectors who like me care about the feeling to really own a game once they paid for it. So as much as I appreciate and like the idea of a disc or nicely designed USB sticks, I only see a value in that if it is a DRM free version which I could still use in many years without needing to sign in somewhere or having an Internet connection at all.
      If this can be offered I am all in :-)

    48. Brantley Love on

      I would add the USB physical copy if it were DRM-free. Having it locked to Steam isn't very compelling to me.
