Keiji Inafune posted the update that Mighty No. 9 fans have been waiting for.
“Firstly, I would like to say again how sincerely sorry we are for how long we have kept all of our fans waiting. We are finally able to deliver some long awaited news regarding Mighty No. 9. We have now confirmed the following release dates for Mighty No. 9: June 21st 2016 (North America & Asia) and June 24th 2016 (World Wide). We understand that as a result of the various delays we have disappointed and let down our fans, but we are happy to finally be able to deliver the game to everyone who brought us this far.”
The Vita and Nintendo 3DS versions will “follow at a later point” the announcement said.
It’s been nearly three years since the Kickstarter campaign, and there’s finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Last month, it seemed like the Mighty No. 9 community was losing faith in the project. Delay rumors had popped up as recent as last week, even.
