Mega Man successor Mighty No. 9 gets a February release

The oft-delayed successor to the Mega Man franchise, Mighty No. 9, now has another release date. (One that we hope it sticks to). Developer Comcept and publisher Deep Silver announced today that the game will hit American PS4s, Wii Us, and Xbox Ones next year on February 9th. The rest of the world will be able to enjoy it on February 12th.

Mighty No. 9 first shot into the spotlight in 2013, when Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune launched a Kickstarter campaign for a brand new series. The campaign managed to raise more than $4 million in donations at the time, and the game's developers initially aimed for an April 2015 release.

Hopefully Comcept has worked out the kinks

However, the game has been dogged by a number of delays. After the first release date came and went, it was announced that the successor series would launch this month. However, due to bugs and online feature issues, Comcept pushed the release date back yet again, even though the company insisted the game was otherwise complete. Let's hope they've worked all the kinks out this time around.
