Possible spiritual successor to Mega Man coming to PC

Mega Man fans, rejoice! Keiji Inafune, creator of the iconic Blue Bomber, is taking to Kickstarter in order to bring his own game, Mighty No. 9, to fruition. The platformer, which Inafune wants to bring to PC, looks like an awesome amalgam of classic Mega Man action, modern art direction, and slick new stages.

The Kickstarter campaign has already raised over $700k in just 24 hours, with a goal of $900k to get the game fully funded. Though it's never directly stated in any of the promotional material, it's safe to say the game is more than a little inspired by Mega Man. The description is as follows:

"You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by a mysterious computer virus that has caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way through six stages (or more, via stretch goals) you can tackle in any order you choose,using weapons and abilities stolen from your enemies to take down your fellow Mighty Number robots and confront the final evil that threatens the planet!"

If that sounds right up your alley, check out the Kickstarter here and pledge away. If the project exceeds its goal, possible console versions could be a reality as well.
