We were so close! Just as we got a few weeks away from the February 9 release date of Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune announced a new delay over at the game's Kickstarter page. Due to some critical networking bugs, particularly in the area of matchmaking, Mighty No. 9 has been pushed back to a loose spring 2016 release. Hit the jump for more.
The latest trailer for Mighty No. 9 is really pushing the GamePro-approved "Fun Factor," highlighting a bunch of the action and replayability that awaits in the latest from Keiji Inafune and Comcept. See some of the extra modes available, from Boss Rush to One Hit Death Maniac Mode, in the preview after the jump.
Mighty No. 9 has experienced its share of ups and downs since its initial success on Kickstarter, and USgamer's Jeremy Parish recently sat down with Keiji Inafune to discuss all that and more. One of the questions brought up the fact that third-party amiibo are now possible, and Inafune responded positively to the suggestion of doing something like that for Mighty No. 9.

If some of the recent delays and issues with Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9 have you down on the project, creator Keiji Inafune would like to calm those concerns. Inafune spoke at Unreal Fest 2015 in Yokohama, letting everyone know that there will absolutely be no further delays for Mighty No. 9. More after the jump.
Comcept's Kickstarter-funded Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9 has had more than a few bumps along the way, but it now has a new release date. After missing its planned September launch, publisher Deep Silver and Comcept announced a North American release of February 9, 2016, with the rest of the world following on February 12.
The Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter recently posted an update for participants of the Kimokimo Cup Robot Design Contest, but a less encouraging note capped off the post. Backers were supposed to be able to dig into the trial version of the delayed platformer on September 15, but that version has been pushed back, as well. Read on for more.
Backers and anyone else looking forward to Mighty No. 9 ran face first into disappointment when the Mega Man spiritual successor was delayed to early 2016. Though it's not really a consolation prize, a free-to-play browser game from Neos and Yahoo! Japan is here to scratch a small fragment of that itch. More after the jump.
It hasn't exactly been an amazing week for Comcept and Keiji Inafune. Sure, Studio 4ºC's anime got funded, but the Kickstarter for the game failed, and even though Red Ash will still be made, a sizable vat of ill will has been brewing as a result. Oh yeah, and a delay for Mighty No. 9 was also confirmed. Hit the jump for more.
Despite all the hullabaloo surrounding the Red Ash Kickstarter, now seems like an appropriate time for the following Mighty No. 9 video. The Summer Games Done Quick speedrunning marathon is still going strong right now, and speedrunning is the name of the game in the latest batch of footage. Watch an opening stage speedrun from Inti Creates after the jump.
Mighty Gunvolt was a nice little throwback bonus when it launched on Nintendo 3DS alongside Azure Striker Gunvolt. Now it's taking its NES-style platformer/shooter action to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan as Gal Gunvolt, complete with all the DLC levels from the original 3DS version. More after the jump.
