Mighty Number 9 Gets a Mighty New Release Date

Posted on April 28, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Keiji Inafune’s highly anticipated first post Capcom release Mighty Number 9 finally has a solid release date – September 15th 2015 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Presumably the PS Vita version will launch soon thereafter but publisher Deep Silver doesn’t exactly sound prepared to discuss the specific release plans for the handheld version.

Mighty Number 9 is a spiritual successor of sorts to Inafune’s most well-known creation Mega Man. Running along a 2D plane the player is able to run, jump and shoot various projectiles at enemies. By defeating bosses Beck, the game’s protagonist, is able to transform into new forms to land devastating attacks on his foes.

Mighty Number 9’s successful Kickstarter was announced almost two years ago at the 2013 Penny Arcade Expo. The game went on to become one of the most successful KickStarter projects ever – raising over 4 million dollars.

Deep Silver will publish the physical retail versions of the game, however it will also be available through digital distribution. Over on the PlayStation Blog Deep Silver provided the following list of new features for the game:

  • Play through 12 Unique and Challenging Stages in a single player campaign.

  • Unlock the New Game+ to add an additional two extra difficulty levels including a punishing Turbo mode.

  • The Single Player Challenge mode with dozens of mini missions for the hardest of challenges.

  • Boss Rush Mode: Play through each of the game‘s bosses, back to back, with a clock ticking to keep track of your best time.

  • Show the world how Mighty you are in the 2 Player Online Race Battle where you compete online, racing through each stage together in a head to head battle – adding an all new twist on versus mode play that will give Mighty No. 9 life well beyond the single-player campaign.

  • 2 Player Online Co-Op Challenge Mode: take on over a dozen missions online with a friend, playing as Beck and his partner, Call! Use Beck and Call’s different powers together in order to defeat these special challenges.

  • Toggle between regular and 8-bit music: this game is a veritable who’s who of veteran game composers – Manami Matsumae, Takeshi Tateishi, Ippo Yamada. As such, Mighty No. 9 features an optional chiptune version of the entire game soundtrack which you can toggle on and off.

  • Brand new Ray DLC which features a new stage with its own unique boss as well as a brand new unlockable playable character.
