Up to the very end, Mighty No. 9 can't stop pulling a Mighty No. 9. It took over a year for Kickstarter backers to get their game boxes and accompanying game manuals, which are too big to fit inside some of the boxes.
The Famicom style game boxes and manuals were sent to backers who donated $US60 ($76) or more. They could have also selected NES style boxes.

It took Mighty No 9 over a year to send out this flimsy box and rather plain manual (which doesn't fit in the box by the way) pic.twitter.com/fO5OKsNV65

A year after release, my Mighty No. 9 box finally showed up. The manual is too big to fit inside.

While real Famicom game manuals fit inside real Famicom game boxes, Mighty No. 9 has larger size manual that can't.
It does, however, fit in the NES style English language boxes.

It's bigger than tradition NES game manuals, but yes it fits in the box.

Was that memo sent to those who selected the Japanese boxes? Did people know if they picked the Famicom style box that the manual would not fit inside?
This is the latest (last?) problem in a string of issues the game faced during development and release.
