Battle Princess Madelyn Delayed on Switch, Arriving on PS4 (NA) Next Week
Battle Princess Madelyn awaiting clearance from Nintendo while PS4 (NA) is set to get the title next week.
Battle Princess Madelyn has found itself delayed once again with the PS4 (NA) version of the title being pushed to launch next week, and the Nintendo Switch and PS4 (EU) versions being currently delayed until more details are revealed.
Last week we saw Causal Bit Game’s title launch for Xbox One and PC on December 6, but the planned launch for PS4 and Switch on that same date had to be pushed back. Those waiting for Battle Princess Madelyn to arrive on the Switch will have to wait until the title gets clearance from Nintendo as well as a new release date for the platform. According to PR Hound, they should know a release date for the Switch within the next week.
While PS4 (NA) users are expected to get the title next week on December 20th, PS4 (EU) users are still waiting on a release date.
Christopher Obritsch from Causal Bit Games commented on the delays,
“Unfortunately, the delay for Switch (and PS4 (NA)) was unavoidable, but these extra weeks have resulted in superb feedback from some top gaming media, and experts, which means some new and exciting additions to the game will occur over the next month via patches updated through all the stores. Some gamers, although loving the game, have been frustrated by certain strategies in what is an ‘old school’ concept. As such a help and hints system patch will be available shortly to aid the player. We have been totally transparent throughout and hope gamers will continue to feed us information. Due to the length of time it takes to get patches through the different publishers, we hope that the Switch version will be out very soon. We will ensure that all of the bug fixes and changes we took in from feedback are in the game on launch. Thank you for your understanding”
New updates and patches are being applied to Battle Princess Madelyn on PC and Xbox One with more saves being added, earlier levels more intuitive, and players being able to adjust the pace and strategic challenges available. The protagonist’s companion Fritzy will also now bark when nearby treasure and an additional use of the objective arrow will also give more directional assistance.
Battle Princess Madelyn launched last week for Xbox One and PC and you can give my review on the title a read here. Additionally, I spent some time talking with Causal Bit Games and PR Hound about the game and created this documentary into how the title co-created by a seven-year-old came to be.
You can find Battle Princess Madelyn currently on Xbox One and PC, it’s expected to launch next week for PS4 (NA) and yet to have a release date set for PS4 (EU) and Switch.
