Level-5 Acquires Mighty No. 9 Developer Comcept

Mighty No.9 will still get PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS versions.

In the latest issue of Famitsu, translated via Gematsu, Level-5 announced their acquisition of Mighty No.9 developer Comcept, as well as officially changing the studio’s name to Level-5 Comcept.

The acquisition sparked speculation on whether this means the cancellation of the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS versions of Mighty No. 9. However, the studio announced the ports’ development is going as planned and will release within the planned timeline.

It’s been a long time since our last update. This is due to some internal adjustment we had in comcept for the past few months, but now everything is back on track! We are very sorry for the long radio silence. Here is what is going with Mighty No. 9:

1. Hand Held versions: They are not being cancelled, we are still in the process of porting. The porting had to be put on hold for a while due to the other versions being delayed and the recent adjustment we had in comcept. However, everything is back on track now. The developer restarted the porting process in early May, and we estimate to release them within 2017 (it could be earlier, but it’s hard to estimate a more precise date at this point). We will update on this when we have more information.

What do you think of this acquisition?
