Mighty No. 9 Listing Disappears From Nintendo Europe’s 3DS eShop

Mighty No.

Despite many backers having already paid off their copies, another sign of the potential demise of Mighty No. 9 for Nintendo 3DS has become manifest.

Sometime yesterday, Mighty No. 9‘s listing dropped off Nintendo Europe’s 3DS eShop. Considering this handheld version of the game was supposed to come out nearly three years ago, those gamers holding on to any flicker of hope are likely waning.

Along with the lack of a 3DS version, still no sign of a PlayStation Vita version is present.

The Keiji Inafune backer-funded project released on most of its planned platforms in June 2016. Although interest has all but faded, the fact that Mighty’ No. 9‘s Vita and 3DS ports are unlikely to ever see an update could be damaging to Inafune’s legacy.

For more on whether or not these pre-backed ports will ever see the light of day, keep up with OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
