The Kickstarter-funded Mega Man-style from series creator Keiji Inafune, Mighty No. 9, has a release date. Deep Silver will publish a physical version of the game, as well.


Mighty No. 9 raised nearly $4 million in 2013, well over the project’s original $900,000 goal.

Inafune spent most of his career at Capcom before forming his own company, COMCEPT. The studio has been involved in a number of different games in recent years, including Soul Sacrifice, Azure Striker Gunbolt, and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.

It’s hitting Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox 360, and PS3 at launch, with Vita and 3DS versions later.
