Mighty No. 9 Gets a Confirmed Release Date


There’s still some hope left for the long awaited Mega Man successor after all.

In a recent update from the game’s website, Keiji Inafune has announced that Mighty No. 9 is currently finishing up development and has officially gone gold. As for a release date, however, spring of 2016 doesn’t seem very promising.

Inafune’s statement went on to say that the game would finally be ready and available for purchase on June 21st 2016 for North America and Asia, followed by a worldwide release on June 24th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and Linux. He also mentioned that there would be “no further delays for the game” and that this is promised to be a “set in stone” release.

On a sour note, its 3DS and PlayStation Vita release apparently will come at a different and unknown date (sorry handheld junkies).

The update also came with its fair share of sincere apologies, seeing as though this is the Mighty No. 9’s third “confirmed” release date within the last year due to an insufficient online mode, leaving backers frustrated for supporting a game that was originally revealed with single player only. One can only hope the game actually lives up to its three years and 3.8 million dollars worth of development. At this point in time, it’s hard to say this game will hit hard with fans and backers without having a small shred of doubt in mind.
