Indie game go-to spokesperson for the PlayStation platforms, Shahid Kamal announced during his speech at Eurogamer Expo 2013 that Kickstarter project Mighty NO. 9 would be adding PS Vita as a stretch goal later today.
Keiji Inafune’s new founded indie company COMCEPT so far has had a quite successful Kickstarter campaign with Mighty NO. 9. And now with four days and little under a million dollar away from reaching the recently added Vita/3DS stretch goal, handheld owners might see this game released for their systems.
Abstraction Games the studio behind cross platform porting of games such as; Hotline Miami, Angry Birds, Rocketbirds: Hard Boiled Chicken, will be responsible for porting Mighty NO. 9 to PS Vita and 3DS.
Abstraction Games is a Game Development and Platform Adaptation Studio targeting DLC platforms including but not limited to PC, Mac, iOS devices, DSi, 3DS, Wii, PS Vita, PS3, Xbox 360.
The official Twitter account of Mighty No. 9 retweeted me in confirmation of Shahid’s announcement during Eurogamer Expo 2013. While the popularity of Mighty No. 9 with fans of the Mega Man franchise might ensure the Kickstarter stretch goal will be met, it certainly is telling that a brand like Playstation can’t/won’t/aren’t allowed to/doesn’t have to pay for this port themselves.
Depending on the game and what these ports might bring to their respective platforms one could argue that the Vita version will be held back due to the capabilities of the 3DS.
