Mighty No. 9 Gets Official Release Date

Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune’s much-awaited next adventure Mighty No. 9 finally has an official release date, and it looks like we will have to wait a few months before we can get our hands on it.

Announced on the official PlayStation Blog, Deep Silver will be publishing the game digitally on PS3 and PS4 September 15th, as well as a physical release for PS4 on the same date. The Vita version will follow a short time after.

After a very successful Kickstarter, many are hoping that Mighty No. 9 will be the Mega Man game we’ve all wanted for years. Take a look at some of the confirmed features (with more sure to be announced):

  • Play through 12 Unique and Challenging Stages in a single player campaign.
  • Unlock the New Game+ to add an additional two extra difficulty levels including a punishing Turbo mode.
  • The Single Player Challenge mode with dozens of mini missions for the hardest of challenges.
  • Boss Rush Mode: Play through each of the game‘s bosses, back to back, with a clock ticking to keep track of your best time.
  • Show the world how Mighty you are in the 2 Player Online Race Battle where you compete online, racing through each stage together in a head to head battle – adding an all new twist on versus mode play that will give Mighty No. 9 life well beyond the single-player campaign.
  • 2 Player Online Co-Op Challenge Mode: take on over a dozen missions online with a friend, playing as Beck and his partner, Call! Use Beck and Call’s different powers together in order to defeat these special challenges.
  • Toggle between regular and 8-bit music: this game is a veritable who’s who of veteran game composers – Manami Matsumae, Takeshi Tateishi, Ippo Yamada. As such, Mighty No. 9 features an optional chiptune version of the entire game soundtrack which you can toggle on and off.
  • Brand new Ray DLC which features a new stage with its own unique boss as well as a brand new unlockable playable character.

With games like this and Shovel Knight garnering such hype, it looks like we could be in the middle of a full blown renaissance of this type of game. Count me among those who are quite happy about that.
