Over a month past its delay into next year, developer Comcept has finally nailed down a release day for Mighty No. 9. The 2D action-platformer from Mega Man designer Keiji Inafune will release February 9th, 2016 across all platforms, the studio has announced.
Now two years into development since its announcement in September of 2013, Mighty No. 9 easily passed all of its original stretch goals, earning over $4 million as the sixth most funded project in Kickstarter history. The game is being co-developed with Japanese studio Into Creates and published by German–founded Deep Silver.
The development team posted the following thank you to their fans on their Kickstarter page earlier today:
We have a very important announcement today!
Comcept and our partners at Inti Creates and Deep Silver have been hard at work clearing up any remaining issues with the online modes included in Mighty No. 9. As a result of their progress, we are now able to officially announce our release date!
Mighty No. 9 will release in North America on February 9th, 2016 and will release for the rest of the world on February 12th, 2016.
We are looking forward to delivering this game to our fans, especially all of our backers!
Thanks again for all of your support and patience! (｀_´)ゞ
