After a numerous delays, Mighty No. 9 will be released on June 21st, 2016 in North America and Asia. Worldwide on June 24th.
Mighty No. 9 has gone gold and Keiji Inafune says the game is in its final stages of development. He is also “sincerely sorry” for the wait. The release date is “set in stone and there will be no further delays for the game.”
Portable versions for the PS Vita and 3DS will arrive at a later date so if you were waiting for those ports, this news may still be a bit disappointing.

After finishing up Mighty No. 9, Inafune and his team are on to their next project, Red Ash – The Indelible Legend. With what is being called the spiritual successor to Mega-Man Legends, (no thanks to Capcom, but that’s another story for another day) Red Ash takes place in a near-future, sci-fi, anime inspired world. Inafune really emphasizes that he wants players to feel like they are exploring an anime world and to question is the world “is this earth or not.”
Red Ash is up on Kickstarter now so if you want another Mega-Man Legends game like I do, then you should back it. Check out the neat pledge video below too. Keiji and his team show off some concept art, a concept cut scene is shown off along with the main cast and even a character with a name that is yet to be revealed.
Keiji Inafune’s long awaited, spiritual successor to the Mega Man series will be released September 15th. If you pre-order, you get the “Retro Hero” DLC that basically looks like a Minecraft version of Beck.
If you want to be a bit fancier, North Americans can pre-order the limited Mighty No.9 Signature Edition. This edition features a 6.5″ numbered figurine of Beck complete with three interchangeable faceplates and 14 points of articulation all for $59.99.
Mighty No.9 is being brought to us by Deep Silver and will appear on just about every console under the sun.
