If backers old and new alike donate at least $190,000 dollars to the game, a new stage and a rival boss character named “Ray” will be added to the game, for all backers.
Comcept has made a few things clear about the downloadable content: if the new milestone is reached, it will come some time next summer to all current backers. However, they pointed out that “none of the developers have or would begin working in earnest on this DLC until their work is done on the Mighty No. 9 retail release.”
Many fans are likening Ray to Mega Man‘s own Zero. He’s described as “a lone wolf character with no siblings” and a noticeable part of his chest is missing, where his core should be. Ray is consistently deteriorating, which may explain why his absorption ability is more vampiric than Beck’s version.
