Three days after delaying the planned release of a backers-only demo in the sketchiest way possible, Mighty No. 9 developer Comcept finally posted a detailed update on the situation to the highly anticipated platformer’s Kickstarter page and official site.
Citing “last-minute and unexpected complications,” the statement from Comcept says that, while the demo was finished on time, they ran into issues distributing it exclusively to backers. The studio is now working with Humble Bundle to deliver the trial version through their storefront, with all DRM and time limits removed as an apology for the added wait. No new date or time frame has been given for the demo’s release, but knowing Comcept’s track record on that front, maybe it’s for the best.
It’s important to note that this apology spiral started long ago, with the demo itself being an apology for the two last-minute delays the full version of the game has undergone in the last six months.
Mighty No. 9 is now slated to release in the first quarter of 2016 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PC.
