Backer Betrayal: Mighty No. 9 Backers Still Waiting On Physical Rewards
Mighty No. 9, the Kickstarter project infamous for its mismanagement and lackluster release, has taken another hit. Backers have reportedly not received the promised physical rewards for their monetary support. The merchandise company contracted to fulfill these rewards, Fangamer, has come forward in an attempt to explain the situation. In a game backer forum post, Fangamer has explained that while they were contracted to provide these backer rewards, they do need necessary materials from Comcept to fulfill said contract.
Currently, these physical rewards are in production and are planed to be shipped in early 2017. However, this date is based on if production schedules are fulfilled and successful. There is limited to no information from Comcept to affirm or deny these claims.
This is not the first time Mighty No. 9 has faced issues supporting its backers. The game faced numerous delays, even after Keiji Inafune promised that there would be no further delays. Trailers such as the one below rubbed many potential backers and buyers the wrong way, with quotes such as " Cry like an anime fan on prom night." The game even had graphical downgrades after the first trailers and screenshots were release,easing many backers to feel as if they had been taken advantage of.
