Freedom Planet won’t be released for the Wii U this week


Freedom Planet, a Sonic-like side-scroller from Galaxy Trail, was originally scheduled to be released on the Wii U eShop this week. But a game-breaking bug has forced the developer to postpone Freedom Planet’s Wii U debut. The game’s Director, Stephen DiDuro, explained the problem in a post on the company’s official forum:

We received some sad news today: Our patch for the Wii U version of Freedom Planet didn’t fix all of the freezing issues. In light of this, we are cancelling our launch for the time being. We’re only going to announce a release date after the game is fixed and free of all issues not present in the PC version.

I understand that some fans out there were already upset at the last delay and that further delays would be the last straw, and to them I can only say that I’m sorry. I do not intend to deliver anything less than a 100% faithful and clean port, regardless of how long it takes.

Hopefully, a new release date for Freedom Planet is announced soon.
