Mighty No. 9 Release Date Announced

The platformer will arrive this coming February; 3DS and PS Vita editions still without release dates.


Originally slated to launch in 2015 before being pushed to 2016, Mega Man and Dead Rising designer Keiji Inafune's platformer Mighty No. 9 now has an official release date. Publisher Deep Silver and developer Comcept announced on Friday that the game will launch in the Americas on February 9, 2016 and in the rest of the world on February 12.

That release date applies to the physical and digital versions of the game for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. The game will be available digitally only for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Digital versions of the game for PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS are also in the works, but are without release dates.

In the game--which was funded on Kickstarter--you play as a robot named Beck who is the only one not infected by a mysterious virus that makes everyone else go crazy.

A demo for Mighty No. 9 was supposed to be available for backers on September 15, but it has been delayed. Comcept has apologized for the delay, but has not announced a new release date for it. The developer has, however, confirmed that the demo's time limit has been dropped.

In addition to Mighty No. 9, Inafune is working on a new Xbox One exclusive.
