Posted on May 2, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Comcept, the developers behind the Kickstarter darling & spiritual successor to the Mega Man Franchise, Mighty Number 9,  have announced that the game has officially gone gold. Keiji Inafune, the mind behind the blue bomber and the protagonist of this latest game, Beck, wrote in part on the official Mighty Number 9 site about how crucial crowd funding was to the game’s colossal success 3 years ago.

Inafune wrote:

“It has been almost three years since the start of our Kickstarter campaign, which was only made possible through the support of our backers and fans around the world. This is a project where everyone’s passions were combined in order to create something very special, and we are looking forward to delivering the final product to everyone who was involved. There can be no stronger connection between game creators and game fans.”

Comcept the developer behind the Kickstarted Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty Number 9 has released a whole set of brand new screenshots for your viewing pleasure. We’ve got an entire gallery containing all of the high-rez colorful screnshots at the bottom of this post.

Mighty Number 9 was originally revealed back in September 2013 and reached its funding goal only after 2 days. With gameplay that is reminiscent of Keiji Inafune’s former Capcom creation, long time platform veterans and those familiar with his other works should have no problem jumping right into protagonist Beck’s shoes.  This past August the project was delayed from a September 2015 release into February of next year for most versions of Mighty Number 9. It will be released on Windows PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, OSX, Linux. Wii U and at a later date PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS.

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.Read More
