on September 2, 2013 3:07 PM

Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune’s Kickstarter campaign, Mighty No. 9, has already reached its $900,000 campaign goal in one day–as of this writing, the current total is at $$985,493. We also get a new update from the development team detailing coverage that we should except for the game, as well as topics for future Kickstarter updates.

According to the team, they’ve been running around PAX promoting the game and speaking with fans. The update also states that there will also be plenty of coverage of Mighty No. 9 from The Mega Man Network, 100K Strong for Legends 3, Kotaku, Polygon, Giant Bomb, Destructoid, US Gamer, IGN, Gamespot, eurogamer, Game Informer and more.

We find out that the update content is completely up to what the fans and backers want to see, such as: concept art, new story and character details, video clips, featured fan art, a podcast, being able to follow¬†the evolution of a boss design from rough sketch to finished product, listening along to a localization session as we discuss different character and boss name options and/or taking part in an early backer poll on the design for Beck’s partner, Call.

The team has also created a Twitter account (@MightyNo9) for fans to converse with the developers and ask questions. As a little treat, here’s a example piece of some (excellent) fanart that could be included in future updates, courtesy of rnn, aka @prnnography.
