Keiji Inafune’s action side scroller still needs time to quash numerous bugs and other issues.
Comcept’s Mighty No. 9, billed as the spiritual successor to Mega Man and designed by Keiji Inafune, has been delayed into the first quarter of 2016. This was initially seen to be the case when product listings for the game changed the launch date to next year.
In a message to backers (via NeoGAF), Comcept said that, “We are unable to confirm a final release date at this time, however we will be aiming for a release in Q1 2016. Once a solid release date is set, we will announce it immediately to our backers and fans.
“All of the core content for the game is developed and in a complete state. However, there are still bugs and issues pertaining to the online features that are included in the game. These bugs and issues have a direct affect on enjoyment of the game, so a decision was made to work these issues out before release.
“We appreciate your support and patience regarding this matter, and look forward to delivering Mighty No. 9 to our backers and fans in the best state possible.”
Mighty No. 9 has already seen its share of delays over the year and it was somewhat expected that it would be delayed again. Nevertheless we’re still looking forward to it so stay tuned for more details.
