Faithful PS Vita owners have gotten a bit of grim news today from developer Media Molecule. Their upcoming title Tearaway was originally scheduled to release mid-October and has now been pushed to November 22nd.
Siobhan Reddy, Studio Director at Media Molecule had this to say about the games delay:
[[quote]]Here at Media Molecule we love to make new things on new platforms. To us, making games is a real labor of love. Our very blood, sweat and tears are poured into every pixel, every line of code, every note in every song, and every little post it note we use to plan our lives.
Tearaway is our first handheld game, set in a totally new world, with characters on a new adventure. Throughout development we have constantly explored all the ways we could think of to create the most fun and enjoyable experiences possible on PS Vita, whilst also learning how to make a 3D creative platformer! We are really proud of the work we are doing, and are really excited to share it with you!
We are now in the final stages of development, and have come to the realisation that we need a little more time than we anticipated to finish the game; to tie all of the mechanics, story and amazing visuals together into the adventure that we want you to play. To give us that time, we've decided to move the release date by one month, from mid-October, to November 22nd.
We're really, really sorry for the minor delay, we promise you hand on heart that the wait will be worthwhile! Thanks for being patient, please don't be too cross with us, lots of love, Mm xxxx[[/quote]]
While it is a shame that another great looking Vita title will take a few more weeks to release there are still great games getting released on the system leading up to Tearaway's new release date.
