Mighty No. 9 release delayed

Bugs blamed, final release date undecided

Comcept has confirmed what rumours have been suggesting for a while, side-scrolling action game Mighty No. 9 has been delayed.

"As we have communicated in the updates to our backers, all of the core content for the game is developed and in a complete state. However, there are still bugs and issues pertaining to the online features that are included in the game. These bugs and issues have a direct affect on enjoyment of the game, so a decision was made to work these issues out before release," said the company in an update on its Kickstarter page.

It added that the company was working at full capacity to fix these issues but no final release date had yet been settled on. Additionally it needs more information before it can decide on which platforms to make the game available on.

"Considering the fact that the game's release has been delayed, we are planning to open another platform survey once a final release date has been settled upon."

The Kickstarter campaign ran throughout September 2014 and 67,226 backers pledged $3,845,170, while Paypal contributions brought the total to $4 million. The estimated release date was spring 2015.

Comcept is also currently working on an Xbox One exclusive title, Recore, which Keiji Inafune announced at this year's E3.
