Release the Might!

Posted by comcept USA, LLC (Creator)

Hey Mighties! 

The day is finally here! All of our backers should be receiving mails from Humble Bundle regarding their key redemption in the next few minutes. Everyone's keys should already be available on their Humbe Bundle accounts as well if you just can't wait for the mail!

The release for North America and Asia is today so the keys for those backers are being prioritized and sent out first. 
* Please note that for some platforms there is a bit of time lag between the release of the game in store and the time when the codes become effective. If it doesn’t work right away, please wait a little and try again. This is issue is most likely to occur on PS platforms, and will depend on local store policies. 

If you are having trouble locating your Humble Bundle account, the following link can be used to enter your mail address and have a link to your Humble Bundle account resent to your registered address: 

Unfortunately, we do have two pieces of bad news regarding the Mighty No. 9 release. There were issues regarding the publishing process for the Xbox 360 version of the game, and a certification bug was found in the final round of testing which is delaying the release of that version for several days. Our team has already re-submitted the build to Deep Silver (and to Microsoft), and we expect it to go gold within a few days if all goes according to plan. For the backers who chose that platform we are supplying Steam keys so that those users are not left behind on release day. Once the Xbox 360 version is ready for release we will send out those codes to the relevant backers ASAP. 

The Mac/Linux Steam builds of the game are also in final testing by Deep Silver. These two versions of the game should be ready within a few days as well. We will keep our backers updated as the situation evolves. 

Here is a link to a FAQ with all of this information: 

With the game finally releasing to our backers and the public, the entire Mighty No. 9 Team is planning to do a livestream on Twitch to coincide with the North American release of the game. 

You can join in on the action by watching the livestream at the following link: 

We are planning to start the livestream at 3PM JST (23:00 PST) later today!
Please stop by and join in on the festivities with us! 

Have a Mighty release day everyone!(`_´)ゞ

      Have they been sent out?

    3. Senio Rotondi on

      7th of August and still no PS4 physical box. Have they not been sent yet or has mine been lost by the postal services somewhere?

      I never got my PS3 code. I even emailed them and no response.

    5. Robby Rosati on

      NO NEWS NO ANSWER WTF THE GAME IS OUT BUT BACKERS are forgotten nothing recive

      they could at least provide a key for the wait????

    6. Christian Melgarejo Bresanovich on

      I still haven't got no Steam KEY! >:( I',m a 20$ tier backer at least want to play the actual game that I backed.

    7. Josh on

      I backed this project and have received nothing.

    8. Erik Duran on

      I've been playing Megaman for 20yrs and I wanted to help on this project, but I think pledging for $250 was a huge mistake and I really don't back many starters for this kind of issues that happen in many projects with their empty promises. I hope that we will receive the rest of the stuff or I will just find something else to do...This is really sad on comcepts part.

      Still waiting for my key :(

    10. Joshua Hester on

      I don't have it. Don't $20 backers get more than the demo? That's all I have in my Humble Bundle account.

    11. Ernesto Oporto on

      I got my PSN code yesterday, and I have to say... I am really upset by the quality of the final product. What bothers me the most are not the low end graphics or dull level designs...but the horrible lag issues on a 2.5 D sidescroller on 2016! (i am playing on a PS3)

      Pyro and Cryosphere levels are virtually unplayable because either the game starts running slow or even freezes for more than 2 seconds, (specially in the underwater/collapsing chimney sections) resulting in cheap deaths and frustration. Even the resolution of the game drops from level to level. Raychel stage graphics look cool, but Battalion´s stage suffers from sudden changes of graphic resolution (i am not kidding) and glitches. (the sun in the background appears as a garbled mess of lines and other graphical bugs (enemies change their color suddenly without attacking them)

      I'd like to know if the rest of the backers playing on a PS3 are having the same problems.
      Thank you.

      Anyone else got PSN codes for the wrong region?

      I've chosen NA on the survey, but was given PSN codes for Europe instead

    14. Jason on

      I'm still waiting on anything over here.

      I know I backed portable, but you'd think if 360 users were getting a PC key then so should portable as they've been 'delayed' longer.

      Missing content (but download page works)
      Be sure to mention which email address you ORIGINALLY used when you backed the Kickstarter project (3 years ago) and attach a screenshot of your "Backed projects" list from your Kickstarter profile so that they can confirm that you backed the project.
      Select "missing content" in the second field

    16. #14015 - Mighty Morningstar on

      Missing download page altogether (and digital rewards)
      Just enter the email you used to back this project (the ORIGINAL one 3 years ago)
      Then the will send you all download pages associated with your email account.

      @elrubio75 / Di Wang
      Only the US codes work. All other regions (Europe, Australia, Honolulu...) are not activated yet because it is not yet the release day. It only releases tomorrow!

    18. Andrew Park on

      Hi, I pledged at the $20 PC level and didn't get my key. I also tried the Humble Bundle resender and it never sent my key. Can we please double-check? Thank you.

    19. Ari Ashkenazi on

      I received a Golden Hero DLC key but not a key to the actual game, how do I get that?

      So, got the keys, Steam finally released the game, and I've been able to play a bit.

      Overall, I like it. However, I keep expecting a charge beam or more MMX-style wall jumps.

      And seriously, Devs, whose idea was it to have so many instant-kill things? That's just poor game design.

    21. Isa Jais on

      I never received my Steam key?

    22. Ryoma Ishizuka on

      360 owners are supposed to get a Steam code? I haven't received anything.

    23. Di Wang on

      why my psn code is not working?

    24. Di Wang on

      my psn code doesn't wrok at all

    25. elrubio75 on

      Comcept you need to sack Humble Bundle and get compensation or something. My code still doesn't work despite Humble Bundle's claims.

    26. Alexander Hodgkiss on

      When is there going to be an update on the physical rewards?

    27. Zucchina on

      It kinda feels like Mega Man died all over again. Why did you feel the need to do this to us Inafune? I have always looked up to you as the creator of my favorite franchise, but this just feels wrong. So now Mega Man is dead, and Mighty No. 9 is dead on arrival. You left the fans hurting MORE than before when we were simply dealing with the abrupt end of a franchise. Please don't attempt to make any sequels or anything Mega Man related again. Or go back and work on Mega Man with Capcom.

      I'm a loser because I've shed actual tears over this whole mess.

    28. #14015 - Mighty Morningstar on

      Everyone outside the US and Japan has the official release date of the 24th. We gotta wait. :\

      @Michael Lipinski:
      It was said by comcept then the other physical goods (usbs, cds, game box, artbook) only ship AFTER the release date.
      However it was never explicitly said when that shall be.

      Personally I would assume they will use the last release date (PAL region) so they can ship everything on the same day, which means the 24th of June the earliest. And then it has to go all the way to your house... personally, I would not expect them for at least another full week. (°-°)

      PS: no, to my knowledge they did NOT read the kickstarter for the last... 1.5 years at least. Main reason they notice this stuff is because mod Alraz keeps bugging them on our behalf.

      @D Morris:
      As said in the last twitch it is not, no. It's the finished game. While I do hope they still patch a few things here and there... better not to expect much change.

      Do the crashes happen when you try to save the game? Likely to be a ingame bug and not something about your system. However, it might be caused because the game was ported and tested with a newer firmware than you are currently running.
      Try updating your playstation to the latest version (under settings) and see if it helps.

    32. #14015 - Mighty Morningstar on

      I got the wrong console / region
      This is most likely a royal mess caused by the horrible survey back then. Probably no other way than to mail comcept about it and ask (politely!) to change it. I don't think humble bundle can do much about it, but comcept _should_.

      NEWS ABOUT THE RAY DLC (which unlocks retro dlc on steam by mistake)

      humble bundle wrote:
      Thanks for reaching out to us and I’m sorry to hear about the trouble with Mighty Number 9! As you noticed, if you tried to redeem your Steam Ray DLC key, it was mistakenly giving you a copy of the Retro Hero DLC instead. We’ve fixed the issue, so if you go and refresh your download page, you will have a new key to redeem that will give the correct content. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience, please let us know if there are any further issues. Have a great day!

    34. #14015 - Mighty Morningstar on

      European release is in 2 days, on the 24th. Seeing as how PSN likes to fall behind maybe even the 25th.

      received my PSN code almost 23 hours ago and it still doesn't work.

      I have the 99$ tier (pledged 130$) and yet I only received the t-shirt so far. No key, no box, no anything else. D:<

      Have to say, VERY disappointed by this. $250 backer having to wait for my code (euro PSN) when people elsewhere, who didn't even bother backing, can freely buy it.

      Priority should have been given to ALL backers of the project first!

      Instead I'm having to sit and read luke warm reviews, moaning and much more about a game I put substantial backing into and I can't even play it myself.

    39. Jordan Stryk on

      Still have NOT received Steam Key

      Oh and hey it keeps crashing too (PS4)

      I completed the survey for the Nintendo 3ds version, but you emailed me a pc code. Please send me the correct 3ds code that I selected and paid for.

      Don't forget you have the power to review this game at places like amazon/walmart/etc. You can save other people money even if we can't get our refunds.

    43. D Morris on

      So when does the actual game release cause this is surely just an early alpha right? This looks nothing like what your showed in your tech demo and my god the frame rate issues... this is absolutely terrible if this is what you honestly released to the public. Can we see your accounting please cause this is a couple grand not several million.

    44. Kyle Harpster on

      So can't get the controller to work on the PC version.

    45. Brandon Wofford on

      I was given a steam code instead of a PSN code. What do i do about this?

      Johnny Ridden on

      I backed this project for the PS Vita version of the game, so I'll wait to sue my code until it is released. Any idea at all of when that might be?

    47. mesklinite on

      I didn't get the code. Please resend. As I send in a message on kickstart and on a comment on your survery messages here. I would like the PS4 version. I never got a reply.

    48. Anders Simonsson on

      I still haven't received my Steam key, but hey, I only backed it for 3+ years.
