It was supposed to be out by now! IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OUT BY NOW! I'LL NEVER FUND A GAME AGAIN.

Looking forward to it, hopefully they're still on track for this winter.

Yeah, me too. Game delays are what they are. I can't hold a developer's feet to the fire every time they delay a game.

Except for Ubisoft because the game was already done agggh.

Wait, is this game out? How have I never heard of this until now?

I don't mind delays, insert Miyamoto's quote, blah blah blah.

Do we have a sense when it is coming, or just "winter"? I really, really am anticipating this game.

@carlosrox It's not out yet. This thread caught me off guard, too.

@Zero All I see is "Winter." So honestly, I'm expecting it next March.

This is the video that made me realize I needed this game in my life.

You just reminded me of the golden years...*tear*
HYPE!! This game looks fun and I want it out right now.

I was also assuming this game would get delayed, the schedule seemed way too crammed if they were going to be adding all the stuff from their stretch goals. I'm cool with that though, as long as it takes to make it something really special. So psyched!

Ha, I totally forgot this was coming out on Wii U.

I'm gonna play it on 3DS! I was assuming most people would, it's not like this game needs a ton of horsepower or high-resolution, it's perfect for handheld!

Just like Steamworld Dig, amiright?

True, true.

I did end up buying SteamWorld Dig last week, but I haven't actually played it yet! (d'oh!)

I will have to get to that eventually. But man, Fire Emblem Awakening is hard to tear away from.

I'd totally rather play this on Wii U. The NES style graphics make me feel like I've hopped in a time machine. It's almost like playing an old game like 5 year old Jamie remembers them. It'll be awesome to have it I widescreen as well. I wish Capcom did that with Mega Man 9 and 10.

Shovel Knight has been delayed once again. Just got an email update:

This update is to let everyone know that Shovel Knight will be missing March 31 by a few weeks to make sure itís a world class experience, and can release on all platforms simultaneously.

I have 200 games on my 3DS. Wii U is more 'Blue Ocean' to me, and my kids will be able to play it.

You guys and your Wii U systems.

In any case, bummer about the delay, but I'm pretty busy with other games anyway...I would probably not even play it until well after the March 31 release date.

So...no biggie. I'll play it when both the game, and myself, are fully ready.

Also what I've seen of Steamworld Dig in HD, it looks awwwwwwesome.
Posted: 03/13/14, 03:01:57
Yeah, they can delay it for another 6 months for all I care... just make it good. Understandable that they want their first game release to be as great as possible.
Posted: 03/13/14, 03:30:36
June 26th is the official release date.
Posted: 06/06/14, 07:06:56
Got that notification too. 2 days after my birthday!
Posted: 06/06/14, 07:10:23
And it's 3 days after mine!
