While Mighty No. 9 hasn’t launched yet, Comcept boss Keiji Inafune is positioning the IP for an animated series, a live-action movie, post-launch DLC, a sequel, as well as amiibo support for Nintendo’s consoles.
The news for Mighty No. 9 amiibo comes from an interview with the creator and USGamer, where he talked up the game’s delays and the opportunity to create the aforementioned sequel.
“That’s definitely an option for us, and if we have the opportunity to do it, then we’ll definitely take the chance,” said Inafune when asked if the company would consider amiibo for Nintendo fans.
“And also, we know for a fact a lot of our backers are Nintendo fans, because we ran a platform survey [for Mighty No. 9], and we see how many people are choosing Nintendo hardware. So it’s definitely something we have to look into.”
Mighty No. 9 is launching on February 9th in North America and February 12th for the rest of the world across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Linux, and Mac, followed by a staggered release for PS Vita and 3DS sometime later.
