Hey, remember Mighty No. 9? Following a farcical crowd funding campaign and an incredibly troubled development cycle, the Mega Man-style sidescroller finally released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 back in 2016. Unfortunately, the wait was not worth it. Mighty No. 9 was panned by critics and consumers alike, and these days, it only...

Better than nothing
Mighty No. 9 brings all new meaning to the age-old message board adage: looks like a PlayStation 2 game. And that's mainly because… Well, it does. But at least with low-quality production values you can be guaranteed a sturdy framerate on the PlayStation 4, right? Right? Right? Not so, as Digital Foundry has taken the...

This is a story that just keeps getting better and better. After more delays than we care to remember and countless promotional cock-ups, Mighty No. 9 isn't exactly in the best shape leading up to its launch next month on the 21st June. Yesterday, publisher Deep Silver released this trailer, which went down really, really badly with...

"Cry like an anime fan on prom night"
Mighty No.9's been stuck between a rock(man) and a hard place for as long as we can remember, and its situation doesn't seem to be improving, even as we near its 21st June release date. The crowdfunded sidescroller looks as rough as ever in its newest trailer, and the 800 dislikes that sit on its YouTube page...

The saga continues
Mighty No. 9, also known as Kickstarter Mega Man: The Eternal Struggle, supposedly has a release date. The side scrolling title has been delayed approximately 18,000 times previously, so we're just hoping that this date's going to stick - but only because we're sick and tired of writing about how the game's been pushed back again...

Delay No. 3
Mega Man-inspired platformer Mighty No. 9 will miss its 9th February release date, marking a third delay for the side-scroller. The game has now been pushed back to the rather nebulous Spring 2016 window, as developer Inti Creates continues to iron out the network issues which have plagued the crowd funded project for almost half a year...

We knew this day would come
Mighty No. 9, the Kickstarter-developed Mega Man-esque project from industry legend Keiji Inafune has been delayed more times than we care to count - but it's currently on track for launch early next year, on the 12th February. In fact, Inafune recently popped up at a Japanese convention to confirm that this was still the...

Mega news, man
Comcept's overdue outing Mighty No. 9 will power its way to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on 9th February in North America and 12th February in Europe. The platformer was originally due out this month, but was pushed back at the very last minute following a failed Kickstarter from creator Keiji Inafune. There is a PlayStation...

Not so mega, man
Mighty No. 9 will indeed say nein [Yes, we're recycling that one – Ed] to its previously planned 15th September release, as Comcept has confirmed in a since pulled forum post that the Mega Man-esque escapade has been delayed. The news follows the conclusion of creator Keiji Inafune's failed Red Ash Kickstarter – we're sure...

Wow, it's all going on. According to Game Informer, there's a strong possibility that Mighty No. 9 will miss its 15th September release date. The publication, which is owned by US outlet GameStop, understands that publisher Deep Silver and developer Comcept have indicated to retail partners that the title will not deploy until 2016,...

Beck to front
The gameplay loop in Mighty No. 9 seems like it could be pretty alright, but we don't think that developer Inti Creates could have picked a blander art style for the Kickstarted release. This video shows a speed run of the opening level, and we love the boost to attack mechanic – but the whole thing has the appearance of a low budget...
Wednesday3rd Jun 2015
Everyone's favourite blue armoured action man, er, Beck will be taking the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita by storm in Mighty No. 9 this September – and best of all, the hotly anticipated throwback platformer will be cross-buy. This means that, irrespective of which platform you purchase it on, you'll be able to play it across all...

Vita version coming later
Well, looks like Keiji Inafune and his team are partnering with publisher Deep Silver in order to help market and distribute upcoming crowd funded sidescroller, Mighty No. 9. The Mega Man-like title will launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on the 18th September in Europe, and the 15th September in North America, so...

Money, money, money
Keiji Inafune and crew must be laughing all the way to the bank, as another round of crowdfunding has been revealed for Comcept’s upcoming Mega Man-inspired Mighty No. 9. Clearly not content with the $3.8 million that it accrued for the main game, as well as the $100,000 post-campaign fund
Monday7th Jul 2014
Mighty No. 9 is one of the biggest video game success stories on Kickstarter since the crowd funding website was conceived. Originally coveting $900,000, the Mega Man-esque side-scroller eventually went on to raise a whopping $3.8 million after almost 70,000 backers contributed to its cause. It seems that quadrupling its target wasn’t...

Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune gives it his approval
Former Capcom executive Keiji Inafune has released a one minute video of himself playing Mega Man's spiritual successor, Mighty No. 9. The footage showcases early alpha gameplay and demonstrates a handful of the mechanics currently in the crowd-funded game. In addition, the clip gives us some...
