Mighty No. 9 has received (another) release date from Deep Silver and Comcept today. It appears the Keiji Inafune developed Kickstarter game and spiritual successor to Mega Man will be arriving to the Americas on February 9, 2016 and everywhere else on February 12, 2016. It will be available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC for $29.99.
“In the year 20XX, breakthroughs in robotic technology have ushered in a new era of peace & prosperity. Violence is confined to the Battle Coliseum, where robot combatants face off in spectacular duels. Dr. White created 9 robot siblings known as the “Mighty Numbers”, who were the most popular and powerful team of robots in the Battle Coliseum and always in the top ranks. But, during one competition there was a cyber-attack, infecting them with a computer virus causing them to become crazed and rampant. You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by the mysterious computer virus that caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk.”
Hopefully this is a concrete date after too many delays, so backers can receive the game they helped fund. Recently, the demo was also delayed for Mighty No. 9 and developers spoke out on their frustrations over the delays, as well.
