The game surfaced on the crowdfunding platform in summer 2013 and secured over $3.8 million from 62,000 backers. It takes place in the year 2099 where humans have become dependent on robots not just for manual labor but also entertainment. The most powerful robots in the world fight in front of humans in a popular league called the Battle Colosseum.
Last month, comcept USA’s Keiji Inafune revealed the game’s release date:
“Firstly, I would like to say again how sincerely sorry we are for how long we have kept all of our fans waiting. We are finally able to deliver some long awaited news regarding Mighty No. 9. We have now confirmed the following release dates for Mighty No. 9: June 21st 2016 (North America & Asia) and June 24th 2016 (World Wide). We understand that as a result of the various delays we have disappointed and let down our fans, but we are happy to finally be able to deliver the game to everyone who brought us this far.”
Keiji went on note that since the game has “gone gold,” he and his team are in the final stages of being able to deliver it through retail outlets or digital channels. He also vowed that there will be no further delays of the game.
“It has been almost three years since the start of our Kickstarter campaign, which was only made possible through the support of our backers and fans around the world. This is a project where everyone’s passions were combined in order to create something very special, and we are looking forward to delivering the final product to everyone who was involved. There can be no stronger connection between game creators and game fans.”
Sharing details about Vermilion Destroyer (also known as Ray), the Mighty No. 9 team stated:
“Our art team worked hard to create our very own trailer to tease some more info about RAY, and to also convey the overall style our team was going with for the character.”
