Have you been waiting patiently for news about Comcept’s upcoming Mega Man inspired Mighty No.9 title? A post on the PlayStation Blog from new publisher Deep Silver confirmed a console release date for the title – which will be September 15th – but also stated a delay for the Vita version.
Apparently the Vita version – which is being developed by Abstraction Games – was just going to be a “simpler port”, but the handheld versions actually require creation from the ground up and will therefore lead to a delay.
The blog post suggests a “shortly after”, but we have asked Deep Silver what this actually means, and enquired about the Vita getting a retail version.
Mighty No.9 is the latest game from legendary game producer Keiji Inafune and when launched on Kickstarter raised almost $4 million dollars in funding. Heavily inspired and suggested to be the spiritual successor to Inafune’s Mega Man series, the game is a 2D action platformer which sees the protagonist, Beck, face off against the other Mighty No. creations.
We will bring you more news on the development as we have it. What do you make of the delay? Would you rather Abstraction and Deep Silver took their time to release the game without issues? Or are you disappointed that yet another Vita release is going to suffer through a lack of release date parity? Let us know in the comments!
