Freedom Planet was one of the nine Nindies at Home games promoted last month during Nintendo’s E3 event. Reminiscent of the original Sonic the Hedgehog games, the fast-paced 2D platformer has become a highly anticipated game for the Wii U.
It appears we’ll have to wait a little longer though, as the developers tweeted about a delay to the release, originally planned for early August.
Freedom Planet's Wii U release is being delayed until after RTX due to underestimating development time. More details coming soon.
