Speaking at Unreal Fest 2015 in Yokohama, Keiji Inafune says Mighty No. 9 absolutely won't be delayed anymore. One reason for the recent delay is the sheer number of platforms (ten!) the title is planned for.
What's more, Inafune says a sequel will be planned if the game is a success. Sales and player satisfaction will ultimately influence the decision to move forward. As the original game has not been released, Inafune cannot write Mighty No. 9 off as a complete success just yet. A sales target was not disclosed.
So there you have it. Ready for another Kickstarer? Let's hope not.
