The crowdfunded Kickstarter game Mighty No.9 is the spiritual successor to Mega Man.
Kenji Inafune has announced that the release date was pushed to September instead of April. “First of all, yes, it is a delay from our original Spring estimate. The reason for the delay, and the reason we are so excited about this new partnership [with Deep Silver] in the first place, is all the cool stuff it will allow us to add to the game – content that all Backers will get absolutely free.
“Added Japanese and French voiceovers in addition to English, which is free for all backers and extra subtitle languages in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Polish and Brazilian Portuguese. Again, free for all backers.
“Best of all: the entire Ray DLC set which is an entire extra level and boss and playable character. This is free for all backers as well.”
The Kickstarter for Mighty No.9 was launched during PAX Prime in 2013 and it became a success, where instead of raising the $900,000 to finish the game, it drew a whopping $3.8 billion.
Mighty No.9 will be available as a download or retail disc for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 as well as PC on Linux and Mac. The PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS version will follow through as a digital release only.
