Mighty No. 9

The numerous delays from the Kickstarted-backed Mighty No. 9 are now over. Comcept Founder and Director Keiji Inafune announced Monday the spiritual successor to MegaMan has finally “gone gold” and has a definite release date.

Mighty No. 9 now has a June 21 release date in North America and Asia with the rest of the world receiving it on June 24. The game will be available for current-generation and last-generation PlayStation consoles, the Wii U, and PC. This date is “set in stone” with “no further delays for the game” per Inafune. The planned PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS versions will arrive at a later unannounced date.

“Firstly, I would like to say again how sincerely sorry we are for how long we have kept all of our fans waiting,” Inafune wrote in the announcement. “We understand that as a result of the various delays we have disappointed and let down our fans, but we are happy to finally be able to deliver the game to everyone who brought us this far.”

Comcept raised $3.85 million via a Kickstarter campaign launched nearly three years ago for Mighty No. 9. An additional $186,380 was raised via PayPal donations to bring the total crowdfunding campaign to $4 million. The game had an April 2015 target for its release, but the complications of dealing with online issues plus the additions of numerous stretch goals and launching for so many different platforms caused repeated delays.
