mighty no 9

It appears that Mighty No.9 will officially be delayed till 2016 in an upcoming announcement at Gamescom 2015. A post on NeoGaf, quoting a post from the official Mighty No.9 backer only board suggests the delays are due to bugs in the online features the game has to offer.  Here is an excerpt from the post:

Of course, it is important to explain why exactly the game is being delayed.
As we have communicated in the updates to our backers, all of the core content for the game is developed and in a complete state.
However, there are still bugs and issues pertaining to the online features that are included in the game. These bugs and issues
have a direct affect on enjoyment of the game, so a decision was made to work these issues out before release.

While no actual release date is given the post does go on to say they are shooting for a Q1 2016 release.


About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    Yeah, I’m still never backing anything on Kickstarter. Too many horror stories for my money.

      Biggest issue on Kickstarter is that many people have a hard time evaluating whether the team proposing the Kickstarter project has the technical, design, artistic, and management prowess to be able to deliver on their claims. Many projects promise big but the team has no idea what they’re getting into.

      Takeaway is to be very selective about projects you back and remember that you’re not just backing the idea, but also the team and their ability as well. If you can’t determine that, either don’t back or wait for the full release.

    Personally, it’s probably going to be good for the game. First to get the bugs fixed, and second so it doesn’t have to compete as much with all the games coming out for near the end of the year for the holiday season.

    I never expect a Kickstarted game to come out on time and I know that going into backing it. I only care if the team looks like they can do a good job and eventually get it done well on the budget they’ve proposed.
