NIS America would like to announce that, due to ongoing technical difficulties, Rodea the Sky Soldier is coming with a new release date to North America on November 10 and Europe on November 13 for Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. In order to give players the best experience possible, we are slightly pushing back the release. The Nintendo Wii U and 3DS versions will also be available digitally on the Nintendo eShop.

The Launch Edition of the 3DS version will contain a limited soundtrack in a collectible box, which will be available for North America. The first print copies of the Wii U version of Rodea the Sky Soldier will also come packaged with the Wii version of the game and a reversible cover for both North America and across Europe.

Nintendo Japan has confirmed today that the second series of Animal Crossing amiibo cards have been delayed until an unspecified date. Series 2 was supposed to be released on September 30th but has now been pushed back. The reason for the delay is presumably because the card sales have exceeded Nintendo’s initial expectations. Shipments of Series 1 will be coming in late August and the planned production of the Series 2 cards has been shifted to Series 1.

Mighty No.9 Is Officially Delayed Until Q1 2016

We heard from Game Informer and various retail outlets that Mighty No.9 was being delayed until 2016 and now the news has been officially confirmed by the developers themselves. The disappointing news was sent to backers of Mighty No.9 who feared that something was up with the title. Comcept say that they are now aiming for a Q1 2016 release date and blame the delay on bugs and issues pertaining to the online features. Here’s the statement sent out to backers.

We have an important announcement to share with our backers.

Although we understand that everyone was looking forward to playing Mighty No. 9 as soon as possible, a release delay is going to be announced for the game at Gamescom 2015, which is currently being held in Cologne, Germany.

This is a project that would not have existed without the support of our backers, so we at least wanted to deliver this news to our backers before it is officially announced. We are unable to confirm a final release date at this time, however we will be aiming for a release in Q1 2016. Once a solid release date is set, we will announce it immediately to our backers and fans.

Of course, it is important to explain why exactly the game is being delayed. 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. 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 affect 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. In addition, we have received quite a few requests for additional information regarding the various platforms that are part of the platform survey we have sent out. We have also only managed to receive around half of the total responses needed for the survey.

Considering the fact that the game’s release has been delayed, we are planning to open another platform survey once a final release date has been settled upon.

We will continue to deliver the most up-to-date info to our backers and fans through our forum updates, so please keep an eye out!

We appreciate your support and patience regarding this matter, and look forward to delivering Mighty No. 9 to our backers and fans in the best state possible.

– The Mighty No. 9 Team

Looks Like Mighty No.9 Could Be Delayed Until 2016

Mighty No.9 was meant to be coming out September 15th, but Game Informer is reporting that the game won’t be released this year. This would stack up with the various retailers such as Amazon that said the game had been pushed back to 2016. Strangely the developers Comcept haven’t said a word about the delay.

Rumour: Mighty No.9 Physical Release Delayed?

A number of high-profile retailers are listing the physical version of Mighty No.9 with a 2016 release date. This includes retailers such as Amazon and GameStop. Whether this is just for the physical release remains to be seen, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the game itself has been delayed for added polish. Let’s just hope it turns out to be a small delay for the physical release.

Thanks, Adam F
