The reception to Mighty No. 9 has been pretty mixed after the game’s Kickstarter Campaign failed to match visual style of what is now in development, but where I’m coming from it still looks like it’ll be a fun time.
That’s only exemplified by this new trailer for the game in which a hilarious announcer talks about all of the features of the game, like a boss rush mode, challenge mode, online and more. Does it look revolutionary? Of course not, but as far as gameplay goes it’s looking pretty solid.
Mighty No. 9 is will launch on February 12th, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS and PC.
As you may or may not know, Mighty No. 9 is releasing on every platform under the Sun. However, how the game wil utilize each platforms unique features has been up for debate for sometime. That has all changed, however, as developer Comcept has revealed what you can expect for each version of the game.
To start things off, if you purchase any PlayStation version of the game (PS4, PS3, PS Vita) you will have access to the other versions of the game via cross-buy for free. In my opinion, this is the best option as this kind of game screams to be played on the Vita.
Next up we have the Nintendo platforms, as the game will be coming to both Wii U and 3DS. Playing the game on Wii U will allow you to play it on the Gamepad, though there will be no motion or Miiverse function of any kind. The 3DS version will have 3D functionality and touch support, but there will be no amiibo support for either platform.
Lastly, there is no special specifications to be made about playing the game on Windows 10 or Xbox One. Some were hoping that there might be some cross-buy support similar to what PlayStation has going on, but that currently is not the case.

It won’t be making its Spring release window, but we do have an official release date now.
Famed Mega Man developer Kenji Inafune’s Mighty No.9 is officially releasing this September, missing its initial release window of April by 5 months.
The game is a spiritual successor to Mega Man and is only possible thanks to a very successful Kickstarter campaign. Developer Comcept said the following of the release date:
“First of all, yes, it is a delay from our original Spring estimate. The reason for the delay, and the reason we are so excited about this new partnership [with Deep Silver] in the first place, is all the cool stuff it will allow us to add to the game – content that all Backers will get absolutely free.
Mighty No. 9 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, 3DS and PC on September 15th.
Inafune chimes in to let everyone know that things are going according to plan.
Mighty No. 9 is set to be something of a spiritual successor to the Mega Man series, beginning as a Kickstarter project that has been very successful. The game is slated for release in the Spring of this year, and creator Keiji Inafune has released a brief New Year’s message letting everyone know where the production is at.
In the video Inafune claims that the game is nearly finished and that they are now at the porting and promoting phase of production. Check out the video below.
Mighty No. 9 follows the character Beck as he battles his way through Mighty Number enemies that all lead up to the eventual final boss. The game is a 2D sidescroller with 3D graphics with gameplay that resembles the Mega Man series. It is currently set to release in April 2015 for the 3DS, PC, PS4, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
A new video showing off the work-in-progress game Mighty No. 9 was presented at GDC and it shows off all of the game’s characters and some of the gameplay that players can look forward to engaging in.
