Nearly three years after it was officially funded on Kickstarter, Mighty No. 9 has gone gold! The Mega Man inspired scroller will finally be making its way to North America and Asia on June 21st, and a worldwide release will follow on the 24th.
The news comes via a message from Comcept’s Keiji Inafune, producer of Mighty No. 9, this morning, complete with apologies for the many delays backers and supporters have suffered through since the game’s announcement.
