Mighty No 9 gets delayed again

The Mighty No. 9, the Kickstarter backed homage to classic Mega Man games, has been delayed again.

In a note on the Kickstarter page (via IGN), creator Keiji Inafune apologizes profusely and blames the latest delay on network bugs.

“In preparation for the February release of Mighty No. 9 we have been working hard with our partners to resolve any network issues and porting work necessary to publish Mighty No. 9 on the various platforms,” Inafune wrote. “However, the issues relating to the network modes were more critical than expected, and it has become apparent that we will need to delay the game from its 9th February release date. We have been working up until the very last moment to resolve these issues in order to make the February release, but it has become clear that we no longer have enough time to fix the issues and have everything prepared for release.”

He goes on to talk more specifically about problems with the matchmaking, due to the multiple platforms which require their own solutions, as well as the fact that the engine itself is no longer being updated.

“Unfortunately, this is all a result of miscalculations on the part of us, the development staff. As a result, our fans who have been looking forward to Mighty No. 9 have been forced to wait for over half a year longer than expected, and for that we are sincerely sorry. I want to take this chance to apologize personally, and on the behalf of the development staff. … For this 3rd delay of the game, we have no excuses for disappointing our fans and especially our backers once more. We want to take this chance to express our sincerest apologies to everyone who has looked forward to the release.”

The new release date is slated for “spring 2016.”

Publisher Deep Silver originally delayed it to September of last year, reasoning that it would allow for more content. Then it was pushed to Q1 2016, on account of bugs. The delays have generally come close to the expected release date, so it’s hard to say just when we’ll see it finally release.
