Mighty No. 9 has been on the radar now for a long time and with a February 9th, 2016 release window it’s safe to say fans are getting impatient. The developer behind Mighty No. 9, Comcept, has been speaking to US Gamer, who managed to speak to Keiji Inafune in a quick interview.
Inafune was asked about possible Amiibo functionality for the Wii U and 3DS version of the game, and this is what he had to say:
USG: Now that Nintendo has opened the gates for third-party Amiibo, are you looking to expand in that direction for your Nintendo fans?
Inafune: That’s definitely an option for us, and if we have the opportunity to do it, then we’ll definitely take the chance. And also, we know for a fact a lot of our backers are Nintendo fans, because we ran a platform survey [for Mighty No. 9], and we see how many people are choosing Nintendo hardware. So it’s definitely something we have to look into.
It’s an exciting time for publishers given that Nintendo has given free reigns over third party Amiibo’s! Thanks to US Gamer for the interview.
The game has had a huge amount of funding, and the target goal on Kickstarter was $900,000 back in 2013. They managed to smash that with an end total of around the 4 million mark which will surely go down as one of the top crowdfunding campaigns in history.
It hasn’t all been smooth sailing for Comcept though, the game has faced multiple delays including a delayed demo, which should have already been out by now. As the main reason this game is being made is down to the fans who were initially interested and funded it, Comcept has faced criticism across the globe for the amount of time it is taking them.
