Comcept announced today that they will partner with Deep Silver to deliver retail versions of Mighty No. 9 as well as provide additional content for the game made possible through a new partnership that sees Comcept retaining ownership of the IP while Deep Silver will help with marketing and advertising the game.
A new stage has been announced for the game today called the “Abandoned Lab Stage” in which Beck faces off with rival nemesis Ray and the player unlocks Ray as a playable character for the game’s main campaign. This is free as DLC for digital versions of the game and will be included free in all retail boxed versions of the game. Mighty No. 9 has been slightly delayed with Keiji Inafune (CEO of Comcept and creator of Mega Man) stating, “We are confident that the extra content will be worth the wait.”
The final release date of Mighty No. 9 will be September 15, 2015 and the game will be available for Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, Microsoft Xbox ONE, Xbox 360, Windows PC, Linux, Mac OS X, Sony PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PlayStation 3. The physical version will be available for Xbox ONE and PS4 while the rest of the platforms will have digital versions only. It was announced that Mighty No. 9 will be localized in a number of regions in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Russian, Polish and Brazilian Portuguese languages with voice-over content also announced for Japanese and French.
