Mighty No. 9 Release Date on PS4 & PS3 Revealed, PS Vita Version to Arrive Shortly After
Moving away from its planned Spring 2015 launch window, developer Comcept and partner Deep Silver announced today that Mighty No. 9 will be releasing on September 15 in North America and September 18 in Europe for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, Mac, and Linux. The PlayStation Vita and 3DS, meanwhile, will get it “shortly after.”
Priced at $19.99 digitally, you’ll also have the option of buying Mighty No. 9 through retail stores on PS4, Xbox One, or Wii U for $29.99.
Thanks to the partnership between Deep Silver and Comcept, some additional content is on the way for Mighty No. 9:
- ‘Ray’ DLC – An all-new stage including an epic battle with Beck’s rival Ray that, upon completion, unlocks Ray as a playable character for the entire main game, adding unique skills and all-new gameplay mechanics. The stage will be available as additional downloadable content, adding huge replay value. This extra content will be included in all retail editions and will be provided free to all Kickstarter backers of the project, upon release of the game.
- Voice-Over Support – Japanese and French voice-overs have been recorded and will be added to all versions of the game alongside the already planned English VO.
- Localized Versions – Deep Silver will provide localized versions with subtitles in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Polish and Brazilian Portuguese languages.
Comcept CEO Keiji Inafune says, “This is a great opportunity for Comcept: The partnership enables us to deliver Mighty No. 9 to a wider audience while adding some great extra value to the game. We are confident that the extra content will be worth the wait.”
