Also got a release of a teaser for the animated series.
Being that with the previous Kickstarter has been passed it’s goal and has been exhausted. Keiji Inafune is hoping to open up the new funding that will allow for those who never got a chance to contribute to the project. Instead of a regular Kickstarter, you will be able to contribute to the funding through Paypal. There are stretch goals that are on the site, which includes Digital Copy Pre-order ($23), Digital Copy Pre-order + Digital Reward Bundle ($50), Digital Copy Pre-order + Digital Reward Bundle + Steam Early Access ($80).
The update from the official site mentions that:
We formed this plan as a result of all of the slacker backers that contacted us after the Kickstarter campaign looking to contribute. But let’s make this crystal clear: this new funding campaign is for bonus content in the Mighty No. 9 video game. We are reaching out to current backers, but even more so to those who missed out on the Kickstarter campaign for a chance to put even more features in this jam-packed game. Any new funding will NOT go towards existing content in the current state of the game, but bonus content to be implemented into the title.
