A few weeks ago, the Freedom Planet developers announced that they would be delaying their launch on the Wii U to August 20 to fix some bugs that popped up in the home version of the Wii U, but not their dev kits. The team has been quiet until today, when they announced they’re delaying the game again and not releasing a new release date until the game is free of issues.

We received some sad news today: Our patch for the Wii U version of Freedom Planet didn’t fix all of the freezing issues,” the developer said. “In light of this, we are cancelling our launch for the time being. We’re only going to announce a release date after the game is fixed and free of all issues not present in the PC version.

I understand that some fans out there were already upset at the last delay and that further delays would be the last straw, and to them I can only say that I’m sorry. I do not intend to deliver anything less than a 100% faithful and clean port, regardless of how long it takes.

While it’s disappointing that the developer wasn’t able to fix the problems encountered, it’s nice to see commitment to releasing a game that is bug-free and works for everyone. Check out the trailer above to see some of the gameplay. With no release date in sight for the game, are you still interested in picking it up?
