Mighty No. 9 is approaching the end of development, Comcept said in a recent update to the game’s website.
At present, the game is in a “pre-final beta” state, and while certain things still need to be filled in, the current build contains everything from the main story stages to Online Race Battles, Challenge Mode, and other features.
What’s left is to finish creating the game’s ending (the current build uses placeholder images), perform adjustments, debugging, visual tweaks and so on. The images in this post are all from the current build of the game.
