Mighty No. 9 will launch September 15, and will receive a retail release on PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U, developer Comcept and publisher Deep Silver announced today.

The physical retail editions, which will cost $29.99, will include the Ray “Abandoned Lab Stage” DLC, which allows players to control Beck’s Rival, Ray, in a full new stage complete with boss battle. The DLC will be available for free to all Kickstarter backers. Mighty No. 9‘s digital, DLC-less release, meanwhile, will cost $19.99.

As for the slight delay past Mighty No. 9‘s original spring release window, part of the reason is the inclusion of newly added French and Japanese voiceover options, and subtitles for nine languages now.

Mighty No. 9 is a spiritual successor to Mega Man that was successfully crowdfunded through Kickstarter back in August of 2013, earning more than quadruple the amount of money it had originally asked.

Mighty No. 9 launches both physically and digitally across PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U, and digital-only for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Mac, and Linux September 15. Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita versions are planned, but will come at a later date.

Another Mighty No. 9 update came out this weekend on Comcept USA’s corresponding Kickstarter page, giving everyone a fresh glimpse at the game as well as detailing some changes that are coming to Beck’s partner, Call.

The bulk of the update came in the form of another gameplay video (embedded above) that sees Beck work his way through Mighty No. 2 and 5’s stages. While the bosses themselves are only briefly featured towards the end of the footage, you see key gameplay features again on display, like Beck’s various horizontal and vertical dash abilities.

The update also showed off a minor redesign of Call, Beck’s robotic assistant. Call became a playable character when the Kickstarter for Mighty No. 9 reached its $2,750,000 stretch goal, and because of this, some early animations of her running and crawling were also shown off. Since Call can’t perform a crouching dash like Beck, she resorts to crawling through tight  spaces, which is just one of the ways the two robots differ from each other.

The update also mentions that Keiji Inafune will be part of a panel at Anime Expo this weekend in Los Angeles, suggesting some more “mighty” information might come out of it.

Mighty No. 9 is currently slated for a spring 2015 release on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Linux, PS Vita, and Nintendo 3DS.
