Mighty No. 9 will finally release in February – there’s a demo available now


Mighty No. 9, the spiritual successor to Mega Man, will finally arrive in Europe on February 12, according to a press release from publisher Deep Silver. It will arrive on February 9 in the Americas.

Additionally, if you pledged toward the game’s Kickstarter, you can head over to Humble Bundle right now and login with the email attached to your pledge to download the demo.

Mighty No. 9 was originally planned to come out earlier this month, but it was pushed back until early next year as the date closed in.

It will be interesting to see if Keiji Inafune can recapture the glory days with the nostalgic platformer. The game seems to have had some issues during development, undergoing transformations like the game’s protagonist.

The original concept had a brighter, more hand-drawn art style, but I reckon the footage that came out of PAX last year looked a touch underwhelming in comparison. Have a look for yourself:
