Comcept, the developer of Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9, have announced via twitter that the final platform survey for the game will be sent out to all eligible Kickstarter backers this coming Monday. This means that this will be the last chance for backers to choose the platform on which they wish to receive the game on its current June 21st release date and it appears that the game’s chances to be delayed again are seeming less and less likely.
We have an important announcement! We are planning to send out the FINAL platform survey to backers next Monday. Keep an eye out everyone!

A spiritual successor to development lead Keiji Inafune’s Mega Man series, Mighty No. 9‘s development got off to a strong start with over 3.8 million dollars raised via Kickstarter, likely spurred on by fans’ distaste at the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 and Capcom’s general unwillingness to use the IP in a meaningful way ever since. In spite of this, Mighty No. 9 has since been delayed three times, missing its originally intended “Spring 2015” release date by a wide margin. Additionally, a second Kickstarter for another game from Comcept titled Red Ash: the Indelible Legend – staged during the development of Mighty No. 9 – fell over $280,000 short of its fundraising goal, potentially indicating a loss of faith in the company between the two Kickstarter campaigns. Red Ash: the Indelible Legend would later have to be funded by Chinese company Fuze, and is currently due for a July 2017 release, alongside an anime.
Now, however, it would appear that Mighty No. 9 – a project originally funded in September of 2013 – may finally see a release. Following the launch of Mighty No. 9 will be a documentary by 2 Player Productions – notable for having produced the video-game documentaries Minecraft – The Story of Mojang and Double Fine Adventure! (based on the development of Broken Age).
Mighty No. 9 is due to release on June 21st in North America and Asia, with a worldwide release following three days later on June 24th. The title will be available on Microsoft Windows, OSX, Linux, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and the Wii U at launch, with further releases for the 3DS and PlayStation Vita platforms due “at a later point.”More About This Game
