Mighty No. 9 has suffered a delay and will now release in September this year, developer Comcept has announced.
The game was originally slated for a release this month, but was pulled back due to its new partnership with Deep Silver who has stepped in to act as publisher.
“First of all, yes, it is a delay from our original Spring estimate,” Comcept announced on the Mighty No. 9 website. “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.”
The developer now plans to add Japanese and French voiceover packs, as well as extra subtitle languages in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Polish, Brazilian, and Portuguese.
“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 side-scroller from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and his studio Comcept will release on September 15 in North America and September 18 worldwide. The game will be available in both digital and physical format on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
Mighty No. 9 will also be landing on the PC on the same date, while the release dates for the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS versions are still pending. Comcept has confirmed that they are in development but will release “at a later date” and will be only available digitally.
