No. 9 has entered delay No. 3.
Might No. 9, the crowdfunded spiritual successor to Mega Man, has been delayed again; again.
Through an update on the game’s Kickstarter page, creator Keiji Inafune revealed to the project’s backers that the game’s release has been pushed from Febuary 9 to “Spring 2016” due to problems with the game’s network modes.
The game was originally set to release way back in April 2015, but it was then delayed to September 15, 2015, then Febuary 2016, and now, a whole year passed its original launch date.
The Kickstarter campaign for Mighty No. 9 began in late 2013 by Comcept, a team of ex Capcom developers, including Mega Man creator Inafune. The project met its $900,000 goal within two days, and went on to make close to $4 million.
The game stars Beck, the ninth unit of a set of combat androids, who must fight his rogue brethren with precision-based 2-D platforming.
While the initial reception for the game’s concept was overwhelmingly positive, the numerous delays, controversies, and a lack of communication from the developers has made many fans salty over the game they helped fund.
Our anticipation for the game has been dwindling as well. We don’t care about the network features, we just want to some Mega Man-like platforming ASAP.
Mighty No. 9 will (now) release this Spring for PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
