The Japanese side-scroller made by Keiji Inafune and former Mega Man developers faces yet another hurdle in the development process.
Former Capcom all-star Keiji Inafune’s took to Mighty’s Kickstarter page this morning to announce the game would no longer make its February 9 release date. In his full statement, Inafune cited networking code and porting issues as the primary reason for the game’s delay.
Although a delay is a disappointment for fans, it seems the team is working hard to ensure this delay isn’t nearly as long as the last.
“Although we are far past our original release date, the release of Mighty No. 9 is still right around the corner,” assured Inafune. “We are all working hard to make sure that we can finish and release the game to all of our fans as quickly as possible, and ask once more for your support of this project that we have created together over these last few years.”
Despite his statements, the blog post didn’t give a concrete release for Mighty No. 9, but it maintained the vague spring 2016 launch period.
Inafune and his team offered apologies for everyone who has been awaiting the Mega Man spiritual successor.
“For this 3rd delay of the game, we have no excuses for disappointing our fans and especially our backers once more,” said Inafune. “We want to take this chance to express our sincerest apologies to everyone who has looked forward to the release.”
Mighty No. 9 is tentatively scheduled to release on Xbox One, PS4, PlayStation Vita, 3DS and PC sometime this spring.
