Mighty No. 9 Delayed at Last Minute on Xbox 360, Mac, and Linux


Mighty No. 9 is out today, however the game was delayed at the last minute across three planned development platforms.

From an update on the game’s Kickstarter blog, we’ve learned that the Xbox 360, Mac, and Linux games will not make today’s release.

While the Xbox 360 version has to go through certification again, it failed its original submission due to a noticeable bug. Xbox 360 backers will receive a Steam key now, while they’ll be able to get the Xbox 360 version later.

The Mac and Linux versions of the game are in final testing, with Comcept hopeful they’ll be ready in the coming days.

It’s worth mentioning that keys are reportedly being sent out to backers now, however, this process didn’t seem to begin until after the retail version of the game started being sent out. Our review for Mighty No. 9 is currently in progress – stay tuned!

    Not that it matters. the game has already been officially decided to be a steaming pile of ass brownie.

    Yeah I’m shocked this isn’t a walking simulator, then you might defend it

    The worst part of this job must be having to give games a fair shake.

    you’re having problems porting a game to the fucking 360 that came out in 2005?

  12. Neojames82

    Yup, it is getting somewhat of a beating from the “professionals” but I’m pretty sure once the gamers start posting reviews it won’t be in a positive light either.

    If I understand the Xbox 360 publishing agreement is that submitting patches require a payment from the developer/publisher. So it makes sense to delay here. Mac & Linux not so much…

    I’ve heard reports of the PC version being a broken mess and the Wii U one flat out bricking consoles as well, though I have no idea how true either of those are.

    It really makes me wonder if they’re doing this on purpose. I eagerly await the review because I won’t be playing mine until a while from now.

    they did this to themselves. They deserve every little bit what’s coming to them.

    I just got my code today. I’m curious how shit it is, but part of me doesn’t want to taint my steam account with shit.

    Haha, amazing. One last “fuck you” cherry on top of the “fuck you” sundae that is this game and it’s production history. What a glorious train wreck, watching it has been more enjoyable than the game itself, 10/10 would laugh again.

    do it.

  32. Mr0303

    Same here. I got my PSN code and I would likely just keep it as a reminder to myself that Kickstarter is shit.

    Did you back to the point to get physical goods? Cause I remember getting an email a long time ago saying they’d ship some out early.

    you mean the one that was being worked on right now?

    yeah no it’s not going to show case anything about this game in a negative light.

    just watch the new first episode and you’ll see.

    June 21, 2016 at 12:04 pm

    I mean the one that’ll get made in 9 years.

    i mean if people even remember this game in the next… say, 3 months.

    Okay, so, they gave me Steam keys for backing the game, but there’s a problem: Instead of giving me the Edgelord Ray DLC, they gave me 2 codes for the Retro Hero DLC. Top kek. WHO ELSE BUT CON MAN?

    Anyway, I’m just gonna go with the DRM free version. Hopefully that doesn’t get fucked too.

    Even worse, the game runs on DX9 on PC which came out in 2002 and still runs like garbage. 4 million well conned.
