Keiji Infanue's Mega Man successor Mighty No. 9, which raised $3,845,170 on Kickstarter, has been delayed to early 2016. It had been due out on 18th September 2015.

In a message posted to the game's forum only available to those who backed the Kickstarter, developer Comcept said it was "aiming" for a release in Q1 2016.

In the post, Comcept said all of the core content for the game is developed and in a complete state, but bugs and online features had held up launch.

"As we have communicated in the updates to our backers, all of the core content for the game is developed and in a complete state," reads the statement.

"However, there are still bugs and issues pertaining to the online features that are included in the game. These bugs and issues have a direct effect on enjoyment of the game, so a decision was made to work these issues out before release.

"Currently, Comcept and their partners are working at full capacity to resolve these issues and fix any remaining bugs."

The delay is yet another blow for Comcept, whose latest Kickstarter, for Mega Man Legends spiritual successor Red Ash, failed after it announced a Chinese company had funded development of the prologue.

We expect an announcement from Mighty No. 9's publisher, Deep Silver, shortly.
