Good. I hope I get my Vita version. It seems really fun to take on the road and play.
Noami  +   198d ago
that was the 3.5m goal so yea we will
egidem  +   198d ago
I'll second that.

It really amazes me how much money gets collected by developers from Kickstarter in such periods of time. Millions of dollars can be made within the span of hours.

Just goes to show how passionate people are about gaming and the need to support someone create something fun! :D

Except there are no guarantees when it comes to funded kickstarters.. We can all hope for a vita version, but there have been so many successfully funded games that have never been released.

@ XB1_PS4 You know they have to make the games right?

Lmao looks like we have a Capcom employee disagreeing with everyone in the article.

Ggame  +   198d ago
I do hope Sony also fund this title.
TwilightSparkle  +   198d ago
Im getting this and shantae ,vita version of course
cero55  +   198d ago
This is great,now everyone fund shantae show the world gamers still love 2d platforming goodness.
LostPotato  +   198d ago
It's good to see games I loved as a kid get modernized and brought back. Capcom looks like a fool right now saying no one wants these type of games anymore.
LordDhampire  +   198d ago
Capcom is smart, you are probably the only 34 who want this game, lets your glory years die, 2d is dead
LostPotato  +   198d ago
What an obvious troll post.

I was making fun of Capcom for not making anymore Mega man games. The creator of the series went to kickstarter, and got four million that says allot right there.

I don't care is 2D doesn't come back. I think you need to learn reading compression.

I backed with $150 so I can't wait for all the badass extras I get with my Vita copy.
Vegrad415  +   198d ago
The best part of all this? RETRO SOUNDTRACK. And the composer for Mega Man 2 joined the team. I'm speechless.
feraldrgn  +   198d ago
Give it to me in glorious HD sprites.
ashcroft  +   198d ago
Actually it ended with $4,000,000

Heavenly King  +   198d ago
Indeed. XD
Sevir  +   198d ago
I'm getting both the Vita and PS4 version of this game, I'm very ready and glad the game received soo much support from Megaman fans!!!

Bring it Keiji!!!
abusador  +   198d ago
Yeah man, it gives me a good feeling to know the old school type platformers arent dead.

I wish one of these AAA devs with AAA funding would make a 2d platformer or rpg in vain of Castlevania SOTN and blow our heads off with the crazy 3d backgrounds, customization, particle effects etc.... I mean imagine taking a basic 2d format approach which isnt taxing on a system at all and throwing all the power possible into the effects and so forth with a solid framerate!!!!

It gives me chills knowing it isn't dead, I dont like seeing this zombie genre

2d died out for a reason, yeah indie 2d games are cool but 4mil is not, wasted money

All you hipsters in your old lame games and your PBR
abusador  +   197d ago

You sound like an idiot. Hipsters? Lol haha far from a hipster. Dudes like you get washed in the hood daily. Some of those 2d games put some of these current 3d games to shame.
abc1233  +   198d ago
If the Vita version doesn't get gimped because of the 3DS then I'm getting that one for sure.
cell989  +   198d ago
thats a lot of money, hope they make good games with that. Its crazy how now gamers have to donate to get a decent game out, I hope this does not become a trend
o2a1  +   198d ago
you should check out the documentary for this, inafune doesn't look like he was doing this just for nothing. It looks as if his main ambition is for making his company and this game a reality.
Highatus  +   198d ago
So proud to be a part of this project. Glad we were able to hit the 4million mark!!
LordDhampire  +   198d ago
4 million for garbage
yaz288  +   198d ago
getting the vita version!
AbortMission  +   197d ago
Can someone explain why they need 3 mil to make a 2d side scroller? How many people are they hiring Lol
