It may have been a Kickstarter sensation but the news that Comcept have teamed up with Deep Silver will ensure Mighty No. 9 becomes a real success.
Created by the father of Mega Man, Keiji Inafune, Mighty No. 9 will release on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Wii U and PC come 18th September 2015 (15th Sept in the US). You’ll be able to pick it up as a full retail version or as a digital download, although the last gen versions will be digital only.
Putting Comcept and Deep Silver together will ensure that Mighty No. 9 becomes a reality for not just the Kickstarter backers, but also for new players. Extra features will include:
- An all-new stage including an epic battle with Beck’s rival Ray that, upon completion, unlocks Ray as a playable character for the entire main game, adding unique skills and all-new gameplay mechanics. The stage will be available as additional downloadable content, adding huge replay value. This extra content will be included in the retail editions and will be offered free of charge to all backers of the project at the launch of the game.
- Japanese and French voice-overs have been recorded and will be added to all versions of the game alongside the already planned English VO.
- Deep Silver will provide localized versions with subtitles in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Polish and Brazilian Portuguese languages.
“The incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign for Mighty No. 9 through Keiji Inafune and his team has shown how huge their fan base is and how much anticipation there is for a true spiritual successor of classic side-scrolling action games. Deep Silver is proud to publish this game and help Comcept in bringing their vision to life,” comments Klemens Kundratitz, CEO, Deep Silver.
Get ready to run, blast and transform your way through 12 stages as robotic technology ushers in a new era of peace and prosperity; an era that changes once a mysterious computer virus causes all the mechanised creatures in the world to go berserk.
Mighty No. 9 will soon be a reality!
