The same bugaboo that knocked it out of 2015 continues to trouble the project.
Mighty No 9 is facing another delay, with Spring now the target date for the crowd-funded title.
Originally given a release date of September 15, 2015, the game was delayed a few weeks before the release date due to issues with online functions. A new date of February 9 was then announced during the last Nintendo Direct, but Comcept updated the game's Kickstarter page this morning with word of the delay.
"Unfortunately, we have an announcement that will be very disappointing to all of you. In preparation for the February release of Mighty No. 9 we have been working hard with our partners to resolve any network issues and porting work necessary to publish Mighty No. 9 on the various platforms. However, the issues relating to the network modes were more critical than expected, and it has become apparent that we will need to delay the game from its February 9th release date." - Kickstarter
The update specifically referred to the console versions originally slated to release in two weeks; the fate of the 3DS version of Mighty No 9 was not mentioned.
