Almost three years on from its successful Kickstarter, Mighty No. 9 might actually be on track for a release.
In January the game was delayed for a third time to ‘spring 2016'. Technically it has missed that date, too – the game is currently due out on June 24th (June 21st in North America and Asia).
Creator Keiji Inafune has also categorically promised that the game will definitely, definitely, definitely not be delayed again.
I would like to say again how sincerely sorry we are for how long we have kept all of our fans waiting,” he said. 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.
With the game having ‘gone gold' we are in the last final stages of being able to deliver it into your hands, be that via your favourite retail outlet, or via digital channels. Therefore the release date we are announcing is set in stone and there will be no further delays for the game.”
There's not yet a release date for the Vita or 3DS versions.
