Release Date Man: Mighty No. 9 Due In September

Jump, man!

Being fairly clueless about console platformers for most of my life, I had been awfully surprised to discover Capcom made a long series of So Solid Crew platformers. (That’s a joke about PC isolationism and early noughties English pop culture. You don’t get gags that rich every day.) After Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom, he, well, decided to make more Mega Man, crowdfunding Mega Man ’em up Mighty No. 9 [official site] to the tune of almost $4 million.

Now it has a release date, though a bit later than its once-planned spring launch: September 15th.

Developers Comcept announced the date and delay along with news that they’ve joined up with a publisher, Deep Silver. This extra time will let them polish Mighty No. 9 more, perhaps applying several coats of robot wax, but also add voice-overs and subtitles in more languages. They explain more about picking up a publisher and what it means for the game in this FAQ.

Comcept are also working on a DLC pack adding a new stage, boss battle, and playable character. That’ll launch alongside the game, and will be free to Kickstarter backers.

It’ll cost £14.99/19,99€/$19.99 to download for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Alternatively, joining with Deep Silver has enabled a boxed release, which will cost £24.99/29,99€/$29.99 and include that DLC.
