Though Mighty No. 9 was set to release February 9th, Keiji Inafune posted on Kickstarter informing fans the wait is going to be a little longer. The Mega Man creator left Capcom in 2010 and is the man behind the unabashedly similar Mighty No. 9.
“The reason for the delay is rooted in bugs inside the network modes, and specifically problems with matchmaking,” Inafune explained. With to the fact the game is on so many platforms (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PC, with future ports to Vita and 3DS) the fix for the problem is different for each.
“Over the end of the year break and the beginning of 2016, the development staff has been working on these issues non-stop without break, and thanks to their hard work the end is in sight,” he continued. “We continue to make progress to resolve these last issues that have been holding up the release of the game on the different platforms.”
Until the issues are resolved, he is hesitant to offer a new release date, but says Spring 2016 is a realistic goal.
“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.”
Originally meant to release in April of last year, the game was delayed to September, then February. During its Kickstarter campaign the game saw nearly 70,000 backers, giving a total of $3,845,170.
