With Mighty No. 9 almost out (it’s due in September), developers Comcept have turned to Kickstarter again to crowdfund another Mega Man ‘em up. This time, they’re thinking along the lines of open-world action-RPG Mega Man Legends.
They’re rounded up a few Mega Man Legends folks and launched a Kickstarter seeking $800,000 (£515k) to make Red Ash [official site]. The pitch is pretty barebones, with only art and ideas to show for it, but Red Ash is already drawing big bucks in pledges. Curiously, a second Kickstarter is running for an anime studio to make a movie set in the same world.
