Just a few days ago, we told you that Keiji Inafune and his Comcept team had added a 3DS and Vita stretch goal to their latest project Mighty No. 9 over on Kickstarter.

There were four days left of its Kickstarter campaign to run at that time, and another million dollars was needed to reach that stretch goal.

Could Inafune and Comcept raise $1m in such a short time?

Of course they could, yeah! So, we can now confirm that Mighty No. 9 will be heading to Vita and 3DS in 2015.

Oddly, the Mighty No. 9 team confirmed this news on Twitter BEFORE it had actually raised the full $3.5 million required for the handheld versions.

Anyway. Mighty No. 9 is essentially a new Mega Man title, with many of the original creators (including Inafune, of course) of the franchise on board.

It's a Japanese side-scrolling action-platformer inspired by the classics, and it stars a character that might as well be Mega Man's twin.

The main difference between Mega Man and Mighty No. 9 is the modern coating over the latter.

Furthermore, Mighty No. 9 will boast slick visuals, online co-op challenges, fresh mechanics, and plenty of fan participation.

There are now only a few hours left to run of Mighty No. 9's Kickstarter campaign. So, if you want to help fund the game's development, you better hop on that link quickly.
