Some of you may have noticed Freedom Planet‘s absence on Wii U. The game was supposed to launch on August 13 in the Nintendo eShop, but it has since been delayed due to a number of issues with the Wii U version. Through the official Freedom Planet forums, indie developer GalaxyTrail doesn’t want to announce a new release date until everything is sorted with the game.
“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.
“If any of our new Wii U fans are interested in playing the PC/Mac/Linux version to tide them over, we’ll keep you updated on any sales or bundles we may be involved with in the future. We also have several extra announcements coming later this month including for our planned character DLC, so stay tuned.
“We’re sorry again and thank you for your patience!”
