In a turn of slightly disappointing news, one of the Switch’s hottest upcoming indie releases, Battle Chasers: Nightwar, is delayed on the platform. In an update on the game’s Kickstarter page, the devs at Airship Syndicate cited an update to the game’s Unity engine as the cause for the delay:
As of now, the Switch version is delayed and we’re not quite sure till when. We’re waiting on some updates to Unity that we’ll need before we can comfortably promise a release date for the game. We know this is a hotly anticipated version of Nightwar, so we don’t take such delays lightly, but our #1 priority is making sure the version we release performs up to expected standards.
Once we have a reliable date we can promise, you’ll be the first to know. We don’t expect this delay to be significant, but it’s a bit of an unknown.
Though the news is slightly disconcerting, delays are only enacted to make the end result better, so the delay can only be a good thing at this point. I would certainly rather the game be polished and well-made rather than hastened and broken.
