Mighty No 9

Mighty No. 9 is just a few months away, a project treated by many as a spiritual successor to Mega Man. Though we don't yet have a final date for the 3DS port, it's heading to Wii U in September on the eShop and as a physical retail release.

A development update has now been posted outlining features for each platform, and it's a mix of good and bad news for the Nintendo versions. The 3DS option will have 3D support, for example, but the Wii U version won't have any Miiverse functionality. For those of you harbouring - unrealistic - expectations of amiibo, meanwhile, consider that avenue officially closed.

Nintendo 3DS

3D-enabled: Yes
Touch screen support: Yes
amiibo support: No
Spotpass: No
Streetpass: No
Mii support: No

Wii U

GamePad support: Yes
Motion controls: No
Miiverse support: No
amiibo support: No
Classic controller: TBC

It's a bare minimum of support, arguably, though the Nintendo versions will at least utilise their additional screens in platform-specific ways.

Are you excited about Mighty No. 9?

Thanks to Ryan Millar for the heads up.
