Mighty No. 9, the Kickstarter-backed game by Keiji Inafune which is no way like Mega Man, will be released in September.
The game will hit digital and retail stores on 15th September in the US, and 18th September worldwide. It will be published by Deep Silver.
Mighty No. 9, which is not like Mega Man at all, is a side-scrolling action game that evokes the feel of 8 and 16-bit classics with modern-day energy and pace.
Although the release date is later than planned Concept says the publishing deal with Deep Silver provides them additional resources for QA and localisation. The extended development time will also allow for work on extra content and post-launch DLC.
“This is a great opportunity for Comcept: The partnership enables us to deliver Mighty No. 9 to a wider audience while adding some great extra value to the game,” said Inafune. “This comes with the price of a short delay, but we are confident that the extra content is worth the wait.”
Mighty No. 9 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, PC, Linux and Mac. Digital editions will be available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita versions will follow at a later date.
It sounds mega, man.
