Mighty No. 9 hit its final two stretch goals prior to the end of the game’s Kickstarter.

Earlier today, the campaign (including PayPal donations) hit $3.8 million, guaranteeing an 8-bit-style chiptune soundtrack for the final product. The optional soundtrack will feature classic sound effects as well. Players will be able to toggle it on or off in the settings menu.

With funds reaching $4 million, Mighty No. 9 will also incorporate an online battle race mode. You’ll be able to compete online with others through “slightly customized versions of single-player stages.”

Here’s the official lowdown:

The ultimate online competition! You and a friend compete online, racing to the end of slightly customized versions of single-player stages. You can see your rival as a “ghost” image in your game, but you can’t affect each other…save for the enemies you defeat being sent over to impede your opponent’s progress! It’s an all new twist on versus mode play that will give Mighty No. 9 life well beyond the single-player campaign!
