Inti Creates and Comcept have made a couple of big announcements. Mighty No. 9 has an official release date. The Kickstarter backed game will be released in physical form and for Kickstarter backers in North America on September 15, 2015 and for the rest of the world on September 18, 2015. This is only possible thanks to the publishing deal with Deep Silver. Deep Silver is publishing Mighty No. 9 for retail release. There are bonuses for both Kickstarter backers and for anyone who purchases the physical retail release. The Ray DLC set will be free as a thank you bonus to backers, as well as in the physical version. Digital versions of the game will be coming at a later date.
Official Mighty No. 9 Press Release:
Big news, Mighties,
OK Beckers — we’ve been working on something big for awhile now, and finally, today, we can finally let the cat out of the bag (this news will be all over soon, but we’re telling you first!): Mighty No. 9 is teaming up with publisher Deep Silver to release Mighty No. 9 this September!!
Why are we so excited about this? Why should you even care?? Wait, is that a DELAY on the release date?!??11
First of all, yes, it is a delay from our original Spring estimate (which, from reading the comments lately, might not come as a surprise to many of you, given we’re in late April already…) But before you despair, please, hear us out first! The reason for the delay, and the reason we are so excited about this new partnership in the first place, is all the cool stuff it will allow us to add to the game (content that all Backers will get absolutely FREE): Added Japanese (yes!) and French voiceovers (in addition to English), FREE for all backers! Extra subtitle languages (Spanish! French! Italian! German! Russian! Polish! Brazilian Portuguese!) FREE for all backers! And best of all: the entire Ray DLC set — an entire extra level and boss (and playable character) — FREE for ALL backers!
And that’s just the big bullet points — this deal also allows us more time and resources for testing, polish, and the creation of physical retail versions (on some systems), and — very importantly — won’t affect absolutely any of our Kickstarter plans or rewards. In short, it will make for an even Mightier No. 9, for backers, for us, and for all our fans, worldwide!
We know this is a lot to take in all at once, and we know anytime a Kickstarter ends up with an outside partner some people will be skeptical, so we’ve prepared a short FAQ that goes into a bit more detail about the hows and whys. See if it answers any questions or concerns you have, and if it doesn’t, let us know!
With the news of both the release date and the publishing deal with Deep Silver, how excited are you for Mighty No. 9? Will you be buying the game in September? Do you prefer to purchase the physical version or the digital version? Let us know your reactions below.
