A message from Keiji Inafune –

“To all of our backers and fans of Mighty No. 9,

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.

With the game having “gone gold” we are in the last final stages of being able to deliver it into your hands, be that via your favorite retail outlet, or via digital channels.

Therefore the release date we are announcing is set in stone and there will be no further delays for the game.

Portable versions for PlayStation® Vita and Nintendo 3DS ™ will follow at a later point.

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.

Now that the dust has settled, we will be delivering Mighty No. 9 to everyone next month. How long will it take you to clear the main story on NORMAL? How many people are going to be able to clear MANIAC mode? What is going to be the fastest record for the time attack mode? We are looking forward to seeing the community answer all of these questions for us! Make sure to let us know your feedback and thoughts on the game through our SNS channels as you play the game. Your voices are what made this game possible, and we want to continue hearing what you think so that it may influence our future endeavors. “

      I didn't get any link to the survey either. It does feel like one thing after another doesn't it?

      Am I the only one not seeing a link to the survey? Is it being emailed to everyone separate?

      I'm another one who did not receive the survey. Looking forward to it, though!

      Got the survey email, it doesn't work

    10. Scott Robert Lawrence on

      Okay, I see that is addressed elsewhere. I'll wait for the survey to be resent.

    11. Scott Robert Lawrence on

      I got an email for the survey, but the link in the email doesn't work. I can't access the survey.

    12. S1lentSurviv0r on

      Thanks mighty Morningstar, that's reassuring ^_^

    13. Preston Litchfield on

      I still haven't received an initial survey...

      The new platform survey will roll out starting next monday. Simply choose (again) what you want it for.

      About time Inafail... But still TLTFL.

      Gimme the game I paid for so I can forget you exist, along with all your other projects.

    16. S1lentSurviv0r on

      I don't even remember which version I signed up for getting. How can I know or change that (if I can)?

    17. Joshua Denton on

      Wait a minute, so after all the freaking delays i have to wait til after the release date because i'm getting the NDS version?

      When are the people that backed the Kickstarter getting their copies of the game?

    19. Assaf on

      @Daniel Rodriguez thank you. I mean I already knew that a second survey is supposed to come, but the knowledge that everybody is in the shadows about this is relaxing. a little...

      > if you pre-order the game at like a GameStop or someplace like that you can get a retro pixel look for Beck

      ALL backers will get:
      - the retro skin DLC (it's more minecraft~ish than pixel)
      - the retro missions (same DLC as above)
      - the Abandoned Lab Stage DLC (stage + boss battle)
      - the playable Ray character (same DLC as above)

      And if you backed at 60$ (or higher) you also get the "Golden Beck"-skin.

      Me too, i would like to verify my shipping informations, because my adress is now different and i don't find how to change it...

    23. Shawn Phang on

      My hype for this game have died down quite a lot due to the delays and delays.

    24. Jonathan Price on

      How do we verify our shipping information?

    25. Alex Brière-Poulin on

      Watching this project grow with hopeful optimism for a better future to the dissapointing slog it has evolved into really was like watching your daughter go into pornography

    26. works on

      How do you guys think about making a refund list? like below.
      I got this form from comment section of lima project which is chalked up to terrible experience at technology section. I also posted at comments section.

      Please copy-and-paste this list, including the header above, and this preamble, and add your Kickstarter username to the top of the numbered section. Over the months, many people in these forums have publicly requested a refund from comcept USA, LLC ie. Keiji Inafune (CEO).
      These requests have been easy to miss, because there are thousands of comments. Also, whenever someone Googles this product, or its originators, this list appears in the search results. A case of "reaping what you sow"

      1. works

    27. Daniel Rodriguez on

      @Assaf Comcept has said that there will be another console survey ever since the 2nd delay. We just don't know when they will update the backers when the surveys go out.

    28. Assaf on

      since I didn't get an answer, I have to ask again:

    29. Artemi on

      I don't even want this game anymore. It could be out RIGHT NOW and I couldn't care less.

    30. Luis A. Deniz on

      Well aside from all the turmoil that everyone is upset about the one thing that I want to ask and I've only recently found out about this but if you pre-order the game at like a GameStop or someplace like that you can get a retro pixel look for Beck so are we going to get at least that or something like it for all the time we've waited? Since technically speaking we've had this game "pre-ordered" for quite a while now.

      I'd like to echo the questions about the status of the rewards. It's been stated a second survey would go out before the game's release, but that release date is awful close. It would go a far way if you gave us an update on that very soon.

    32. Josh Sayers

      I guess my thought regarding this is that I'm going to be very disappointed if I can buy this from Amazon and get it delivered before there is any indication of when to expect Kickstarter rewards to be delivered. I understand that the project extended beyond the anticipated timeline, but it seems that the way the project was initially funded has been forgotten, along with delivery of the rewards to backers. I hope there is an additional update coming soon that addresses these concerns.

      Lorenzo on

      are you kidding with the release date?
      this project was kickstarted from all the world and you put different release dates, because of retail dates?
      i can't even relate my disappointment on this announcement... i will personally not support any of this software house procjects/games anymore, because YOU are just tossing aside US the backers, that we trusted and believed in this project from the very beginning.

      I also lost interest in this project. the constant disappointment with delays and lack of updates really got to me. also never got to try the demo. there are so many different things to play now unlike when this was scheduled to first come out.

      I'm glad you finished it. I look forward to playing it.

    36. Ultimadrago on

      I couldn't care less about this project anymore.

    37. #14015 - Mighty Morningstar on

      supposedly on that mentioned release date of June 24th 2016. The boxes at least seem to have been already sighted.

    38. Zynk on

      What about PS3/XBOX/WIIU release?

      kwerboom on

      I'm glad you finished it. I look forward to playing it.

    40. Rafał Lach on

      Since 3DS version is coming in unspecified later can I change to another platform? Since you didn't even give us the date it means we probably will still face few delays there. With this I will get my game looong after non-backers finished playing it, which will be sad.

      Do-hun Kim on

      I was moved. So, the address has been changed. What should I do?

    42. Geof Aberhart on

      Yeah yeah I'll believe you're releasing the game the day after it comes out and not a second before. I'm sure you'll find some other idiot reason to delay what is already a fundamentally mediocre game.

    43. Christopher Enriquez on

      Is there a way to change my order from an online game to a WiiU version? :3

    44. Aisu on

      I'm still excited for the game, and I'm happy it's finally coming out. Still just glad we get something to fill the Mega Man void, I love the classics games but the Legacy collection didn't do much for me as I already owned those games on multiple platforms. I honestly hope you guys find success with this game.

    45. Assaf on

      first of all, HUZZA! I really want to play the game!
      now for the more important question: how do I say which console I want to get the game for? I want a Wii U version, but back then (way back then) I said I want a PS4 copy. you said the surveys would come near the release of the game, but said release date was delayed again and again!
      where is the console survey???
