Freedom Planet devs found the Wii U holdup, still on the way


It wasn't looking good previously

Last we heard, Freedom Planet was delayed indefinitely thanks to a major issue with the Wii U code. Thankfully, developer GalaxyTrail has found the problem, confirming the progress to Nintendo Life.

According to the devs, "We don't have a firm date at this time, we're holding off on giving one until we're sure the game both passes Nintendo's Lot Checking and a test play through of the Adventure Mode. That being said, far, far sooner rather than later. Optimistically I'd say anytime in the next couple of weeks we'll have a date to announce. The bug is causing some freezing issues in the later parts of adventure mode during cutscenes. We believe we've found the source of the problem and we're working it over. All in all we're simply not going to promise another date until we're sure we won't have to delay again this time, we don't like getting people's hopes up and we were overly optimistic at first about what we'd have to do to make sure we had a perfect launch."

So there you have it -- it'll likely be out in a month or two.
