Keiji Inafune has taken to YouTube to release a special 'Thank You' message to everyone that took part in successfully funding his new game (and spiritual successor to Mega Man), Mighty No. 9.

The game smashed its initial $900,000 target within' 24 hours and has already been confirmed for MAC and Linux as the donations keep on coming! At the moment, its Kickstarter is sitting near its $1,500,000 stretch goal.

Hopefully Keiji Inafune's example here can open the door for more developers in Japan to finally output the games they want through Kickstarter.

Now, someone call up Yu Suzuki AGAIN and tell him to go crowdfund and make Shenmue 3!
