Updated Mighty No. 9 manuals making it out to backers

As FanGamer promised, they have worked on new Mighty No. 9 manuals after the last round were too big to fit in the game boxes. This new version is the correct size and will fit in either box option. Now all is good...minus the 3DS version of Mighty No. 9!

Mighty No. 9 - A look at the physical rewards for backers

As we said earlier, physical rewards are making it out to backers of Mighty No. 9. Not surprisingly, many people are finding this to be too little, too late. There's also a complaint about the manual for the game, as it does not actually fit inside the faux NES box included with rewards.

UPDATE - FanGamer has commented on the size of the manual

"The English manuals fit the NES-style boxes correctly. Unfortunately, the Japanese manuals were printed at the same size as the English manuals, which don’t fit the Famicom-style boxes. We will be shipping a properly sized replacement manual to everyone who got the JP box+manual (at no additional charge, of course)."

Mighty No. 9 physical rewards making it to backers, work "recently resumed" on 3DS version

Some good news, and some good/bad news for Mighty No. 9 fans. Good news is, physical rewards for backers are actually making it out the door. Some people have received their goods as of today, and more should be coming this week. Now for the good/bad news.

People are still waiting on the 3DS and Vita versions of Mighty. No. 9. As we heard already, those versions are still coming. Now here's the bad news. It seems work on those versions has only recently resumed. What does that mean for a release date? Seems like we could be waiting quite some time.

Mighty No. 9 - more hope and worry for physical rewards being sent out

Recently, we talked about a Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter update that focused on physical rewards. Those still have not sent out, but are they on the way soon? There's info that points in both directions.

According to Fangamer, Comcept hasn't given them the materials to actually produce shipments yet. That would seem to indicate a big problem for physical goods actually shipping. Here's the thing, though. Backers have been getting emails stating that their items are shipping "soon," and to fill out another survey by July 17th. Could Level-5 swooping in and taking over Comcept mean that fans will finally get their goods?

Azure Striker Gunvolt collectible badges releasing in Japan next week

I guess badges are all the rage in Japan now. Azure Striker Gunvolt is getting its own lineup, due out Feb. 23rd. I'm quite a fan of the series. I'd love to get some of these once import retailers pick them up.

Designing Azure Striker Gunvolt - Part 2

Not that long ago, we shared a blog from Yacht Club that looked into the development of Azure Striker Gunvolt. Yacht Club worked with Inti Creates in bringing the sequel and boxed release stateside. Today Yacht Club has put out the second dev blog on the game, which you can hit up below.

A deep look into the development of Azure Striker Gunvolt

Azure Striker Gunvolt was a success on the 3DS eShop, paving the way for a sequel. The fantastic outing from Inti-Creates was enough to catch the eye of Yacht Club Games, who took on physical publishing duties of the original and it's sequel in a special combo-pack.

Now that many 3DS owners are familiar with the franchise, Yacht Club has given a look into how Inti-Creates came up with the designs and mechanics for Azure Striker Gunvolt. If you're looking to see how the title came together and where its inspirations lie, hit up the feature below.
