Mighty No. 9 asks Kickstarter backers to vote for character designs
Comcept USA, the developers behind Mighty No. 9, is asking Kickstarter backers for their input for the design for female robot Call.
“A couple of character notes we have set for Call,” reads the Kickstarter, “just to keep in mind as you weigh her various design options:
“Call is a female robot originally created by Dr. White’s friend, Dr. Sanda, to help assist him with his research; she somehow avoided being infected by the virus causing all the other robots to go berserk and has pledged to help Beck.
“Call was not imbued with the human characteristics that make Beck unique, so she’s more of a pure robot — as you might imagine, this contrast can lead to some interesting differences and misunderstandings whenever they interact!”
In the spirit of the game’s name, Comcept has released 9 different designs for Call for fans to vote on. The top three designs will be revealed at the end of the Kickstarter livestream on October 1st, 5:30 PM PDT.
Recently, Comcept announced a new stretch goal for the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter. Should fans raise the funds raised to $3.5 million, Comcept will release the game as a digital download for the 3DS and the Vita. Currently, the Kickstarter sits at around $2.7 million.
