Development Update: The Mighty Cast Grows!
Mighty May’s starting out strong, Beckers,
In no small part thanks to the outpouring of support we received over our publisher announcement! While we know how you guys feel about a September release date, but we’ll have an even Mightier game for everyone as a result!
Speaking of which, this time around we’ve got some more Mighty voices for you; and not just more of the English Mighty cast, but the voice cast of the new Japanese voicework made possible by our friends at Deep Silver!
MEET THE MIGHTY CAST PT. 3
Onto the third act of our character voice introduction, rounding off the cast with Mighty No. 7, Mighty No. 8, and some of our human characters, Dr. White, Dr. Sanda and Gregory Graham!
…Now we’re sure you notice there’s one voice missing here. The truth is, Dr. Blackwell’s a central character to the story, so much so that a single line would be a spoiler… sorry about that!
We’d love a chance to introduce him, though, so give us a second to put something together!
MEET THE MIGHTY CAST, TOKYO DRIFT
There was plenty of acclaim to go along with our announcement for Japanese voice acting! It seems like more than a few of you were most excited about this addition to the project (and Beck’s voice actor in particular, from the speculation).
We’re finally ready to introduce our Japanese Mighty voice cast. Take a look!

Well actually, one things will make us happier… the day all of you get to play the finished game with these voices ready to go!
PUBLISHER FAQ UPDATES
Among the many responses to our publisher announcement were hundreds of emails, including congratulations, confusion, and of course, questions. We’ve updated the publisher FAQ to address the most common questions, but please take a look at the new questions below:
Q: When will backer rewards go out?
A: All backer rewards will go out to coincide with the release date.
Q: Is it too late to change my console/platform or choice, or to update my shipping address for physical rewards?
A: It’s not too late! We will send out a final platform selection survey closer to Mighty No. 9's release date, you can use this survey to finalize your console/platform of choice. You have two options for updating your address information:
1) Look for a confirmation message in your email, subject line "Confirmation for Order KICKMIGHTYNO9-#XXXXXX", with the X's representing your personal identification code. That should have a link to the survey where you can update your address.
2) Fangamer will send out a final address confirmation survey prior to shipping, so please be on the lookout for that a couple months before release!
Q: Can I upgrade my Kickstarter pledge to the recently-announced physical version?
A: The new physical retail version is manufactured and distributed by Deep Silver, and is separate from the disc, USB add-ons and other rewards offered during the original Kickstarter campaign. Therefore, the retail version is not applicable towards redemption of Kickstarter backer rewards.
Q: That’s not fair, I backed at the ____ level to get a USB/disc/etc. because there wasn’t a physical version! You should let me change/update my pledge!
A: While we love that you’re excited from Deep Silver’s retail release of Mighty No. 9, the aforementioned separation between Kickstarter and retail versions currently makes this impossible: As of now, the process involves two different manufacturers (Fangamer and Deep Silver) and multiple distributors (Humble Bundle, and Deep Silver’s regional distributors) for the Kickstarter and retail versions of the game. That’s why making this change would not as simple as upgrading your pledge. That being said, rest assured that your feedback has been heard and passed on to the appropriate channels.
That’s all of our FAQ updates for now, but if you have anymore questions please email us at email@example.com, subject “Mighty Publisher Question”!
Until next time, Mighties!(｀_´)ゞ- The Mighty No. 9 Team
