Creator Keiji Inafune says delays due to the number of release platforms.
Comcept’s Mighty No. 9, designed by Megaman creator Keiji Inafune, was quite the successful Kickstarter in 2013, raising $3.8 million. However, the project has seen its share of woes and delays, first being listed for an April 2014 release date and then eventually being pushed into Q1 2016.
Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like there will be another delay. According to Inafune at Unreal Fest 2015 (via Inside Games), Mighty No. 9’s main source of delays has been the number of platforms it will be releasing on. This game’s platforms include PC, PlayStation Vita, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U and Mac OS X.
If the game proves to be successful though, it’s likely that there will be a sequel. One can only hope that it doesn’t encounter as many delays as its predecessor.
