Mighty No. 9 is the result of an immensely successful Kickstarter campaign from late 2013. That campaign raised nearly $4,000,000.00.
The news of the release date came with another surprise. Mighty No. 9 is getting a physical retail release (for all platforms except the PS3 and Xbox 360) via collaboration with German publisher, Deep Silver. All retail copies will come with an additional downloadable stage that, upon completion, allow players to play as Beck’s rival, Ray (all backers will also receive this content free of charge).
Now that I think about it, that date seems familiar...
