Inti Creates has announced today that Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon for the Nintendo 3DS has been delayed here in Europe. The 2D action platformer is now scheduled to be released on 31st May. The Nintendo Switch version hasn’t been affected by the delay and will still be arriving on 24th May. Here’s the statement from Inti Creates:
“It is very unfortunate that we have to report this, but for Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, the game will release on 3DS in Europe on May 31st, and worldwide on Xbox One on June 6th.
For us at Inti Creates, this is the first time we have ever done such a large-scale multiplatform, multi-region simultaneous release for a game, and we were unable to properly take into account how much time would be required to get each platform’s online store set-up in each region.
This mistake is on us, and we sincerely apologize to the fans affected by this from the bottom of our hearts.
Furthermore, we would like to thank our partners at Microsoft Japan and Nintendo of Europe, who did everything they could do right down to the wire to try to help us avoid this delay.”
