You may want to take a deep breath because Galaxy Trail has announced that they have to delay the Wii U release of Freedom Planet again, this time due to a console freezing bug.
Writing on their website staff member Stevie DiDuro explained that:
As luck would have it, a serious bug in the Wii U version of Freedom Planet was found today that causes Wii U consoles to freeze, requiring a hard reset of the system. This bug only occurs in retail versions of the console, so neither Nintendo nor MP2 experienced the issue and we were only made aware of it by members of the press who tried the game over the past couple days.
We cannot allow the game to launch in a state that would potentially cause damage to Wii U consoles or make players think there is something wrong with their console, so we are delaying again until the issue is fixed. No one is more disappointed at this than me, but we have to do what we have to do.
Thanks to this bug, the Wii U version of Freedom Planet has now been delayed till Aug 20. This isn’t the first time that Freedom Planet has been delayed as on July 28, Stevie DiDuro announced on Twitter that the games was being delayed “due to underestimating development time.”
