Mighty No. 9 trial version delayed after being an apology for initial delay


Yo dog, I heard you like delays

Remember when Mighty No. 9 was delayed into 2016, and then a trial version was promised to release today to backers as a sort of apology for said delay? Today the official blog has announced the trial version has a "good chance" it would miss its launch today because of issues with the distribution method, whatever that means. 

So the Mighty No. 9 team waited to announce the delay for the full game at the last minute after everyone basically already had been told by retailers it was delayed, and then waited until mid day of the trial version's release date to sneak news about a possible delay into the end of a blog about some contest.

Bravo, Mighty No. 9 team and Inafune, you've somehow managed to basically alienate every person who backed your game by not only doubling up on last minute delays, but also by announcing another game's Kickstarter during it.

So do we get a trial version of the trial version as an apology for the delay of the trial version? Will that version be delayed mere seconds prior to release as well? WHEN WILL THE CYCLE END!?
